"Quiet and very convenient for buses to city"

I lived in Corunna Road about 6 years ago, for 3 years, and it was a great time. I lived at the MacDonalds (or Chocolate Factory, if you know it) end of the street. It was a beautiful old house with hall past 3 bedrooms opening onto living area and then the kitchen, back room and laundry were an extension, I think. It had a small paved back area. I shared with 4 people and we didn't socialise with the neighbours - but they didn't give us any grief either; we just kept to ourselves. I was in my late-20s and enjoyed how close it was to the buses into the city, a walk to Newtown or Leichhardt and the grungy Annandale hotel was very close by if in the mood for some live music.

The downsides for me were that there was no main street vibe, like there is for example in Newtown - King Street, Leichhardt - Norton St, and the shops nearby on Parramatta Rd were all furniture or wedding dresses - not where I wanted to shop. Although as I said, it was easy to get elsewhere. I used to do my food shopping at Broadway shopping centre on the way home from work in the city. There was often rubbish from Maccas on the street after a Friday and Saturday night's trade, but it was generally a beautiful and peaceful neighbourhood. And sometimes when I myself was coming home late from partying, that Maccas was a godsend!
