"A good buy in to the Avalon area."

Chisholm Avenue leads off Hilltop Rd, in turn leading off the beginning of exclusive Hudson Parade.

It is a steep incline, and a narrow road leading first east, then south. Heavily treed, sloping blocks, and no footpaths (no room), and also the predominance of on street parking (not all the properties here have off street parking or garages) makes this a very difficult street for walking anywhere. By the time you reach the crest of what seems like the major hill, you would be disappointed to find that the corner reveals a further climb.

It’s a cul-de-sac that ends with a sloping driveway leading down and away into a bushy outcrop with a few further houses, and then onwards into Angophara reserve – which is fairly unkempt residual rainforest (lots of ticks). As such it’s safe, and generally friendly.

Some of the houses are 1950’s cottages, renovated, but still maintaining their original charm. Many have wonderful ocean views.
One of the best things about this street is that because it is high up over Avalon – and many of the houses in the blocks below are on acreages (Ruskin Row) – the view to the ocean may contain very little evidence of suburban habitation.

Unfortunately the eastern side of the street (being downhill) gets very little sunlight in the height of winter for eight weeks or so, but it is wonderful the rest of the year. This is not a great street for older people (who like to walk) or young children.
