"The Family Lane."

What a rare gem of a street this is. It’s exactly as it proclaims to be, a lane, and a prince’s one at that.

One end heralds a marina (Princes Street Marina, funnily enough) – but I’m not sure how the public access to this marina is. It certainly wouldn’t be a priority with regards to living here, and nor would water views… because, there are none.

Despite being a hop, skip and a jump from the foreshore of Pittwater, the attractions of Princes Lane have no more to do with the water – than the wonderful proximity (which is more than good enough).

This is a true narrow laneway (and as such is one way) – but the properties fronting it – actually do front it. I would say it is reminiscent of a British village street, but most of the blocks are large, and some span the entire area between the lane and Bardo Road behind. Obviously this is a very quiet road and not a through route by any stretch, and the street (or ‘lane’) frontages are mostly quaint and certainly attractive. It is also flat land area, so can be made good use of.

Plenty of fantastic facilities within walking distance including, playgrounds, Newport Primary school, waterfront dog park, Newport Arms pub, chemist, butcher etc. A great family area.
