It is actually happening. After six months of searching, we have found a property that ticks all of the boxes for us and we now have a signed contract.
We will be significantly downsizing the land that we have to manage from almost 6000 sq metres (1.5 acres) to just under 1000 sq meters (1/4 acre) in the town. Most importantly, it is essentially a flat block.
The house which is only 2.5 years old is almost identical in area to our current place but quite a different floor plan. It is on a slab with step-free access.
Here are some photos. They are from a couple of years ago and there has been one major change. The double garage is now a large lounge room with big glass doors across the north-facing front.
The floor plan.

While there are some minor tweaks that we are planning, the property is essentially ready to walk in and unpack.
Very happy for you both! xo
