"Quiet, Close to shops Schools and Parks!"

Our family recently moved out of 50 bougainville st; heading up north in search of warmer weather. If it wasn't for the cold winters in Canberra we would stay there quite happily.

Manuka is a 5 mins walk away and has everything a family of all ages could need. Shops, bookstores, night clubs and pubs, even swimming pools. If that's not enough Kingston is another 10 mins away with more dining and retail experiences to be enjoyed aswell as Deakin if you are looking for gyms to workout.

Both Telopea and boys and girls Canberra Grammar Schools are less than 20 mins walk away.

We didn't have broadband installed at our place, I'm almost 100% sure it's obtainable. I'm not to sure of the childcare, local gov or utilites in the area... so they remained unrated from me.

It's a little dry in Canberra at the moment (Jan 2007), but hopefully with water restricitions ease a little the street will be green and lush again.
