"“Unbeatable value for money on the lower north shore”"

We live on Mowbray Road near Ralston Street, and have found it to be surprisingly quiet and leafy. We are moments to chatswood (3-4 minute drive), moments to Lane cove village (3-4 minute drive), a five-minute walk to convenience stores and the fabulous Great Northern, where buses to the city/bondi junction/northern beaches depart regularly. In the event we miss those, we are a 10 minute walk to Artarmon station. There is a lovely park moments away on Helen Street, and the gorgeous lane cove national park very close by. The location is very central, convenient and pleasant. The only thing I will say is that finding a park on Mowbray Road is a considerable challenge (we have a lock up garage, but our guests have complained)! However, parking is available on the cross streets. Also, although our unit is very quiet, I can imagine that some people's may be louder. If you are thinking about buying here, look for something away from the street, and well insulated. Other than that, you can't beat the value. We love it here. Anyone who pays $50-100 thousand more to live in Chatswood or St Leonards must be absolutely out of their minds!
