"Gentile living in Avalon - on huge blocks'"

This graceful cul-de-sac, despite lacking water views, is one of the most prestigious and desirable Avalon has to offer.
This is mostly because the blocks are very large indeed, with many of them being acreages, up to approximately 4 acres.

The northern end of the street, which is a fork opening onto Avalon Parade, is an average example of the local suburban area – but it is the southern cul-de-sac part that carries the kudos. It is secluded and exclusive, the houses (what you can see of them behind the hedges, long sweeping driveways and gates) are gentile and spacious, and for the most part sprawling.

One of the pluses of living here, aside from the quiet and peaceful location – is that it is an easy level walk into Avalon and all its facilities, and also to the beach.

The semicircle of approximately ten properties that makes up the cul-de-sac end, backs on to Angophora Reserve – a parcel of eighteen hectares of somewhat steep and unkempt bush-land. The proximity of such, has led to this area of Avalon (those streets with land attaching the Reserve in particular) – being sometimes nicknamed ‘tick alley’ due to the large quantity of the small bloodsuckers. However, as most areas in this part of the peninsula are effected by ticks, there is not really any differentiation.
