"Wonderful family area - near to everything without being too busy."

Cove Avenue is an attractive, quiet waterfront cul-de-sac (though technically speaking the cul-de-sac end is actually Oyama Ave), with no through traffic. It is a very narrow street, with small blocks close to the road, and housing mainly consists of older apartment buildings – in the duplex style, and older houses. Dotted amongst these there a few modern mansions, mostly stylishly built and so therefore are not an eye-sore.

There are little views to be had from the street itself but the properties on the Manly Cove side much have exceptional views – and some of the higher set houses on the eastern side must also have wonderful vistas.

Cove Avenue is in easy walking distances to all the facilities that Manly’s eastern end (in particular) has to offer, including the Sydney Ferry of course, making this a good location for city commuters. It is one minute’s walk to the sands and blue waters of Manly Cove, numerous cafés and restaurants, and plentiful shops.

On the street itself is situated the Manly Waters Private Hospital, and two minutes further east leads you to the wonderful, family friendly Little Manly Beach reserve with safe, shallow swimming and terrific down-market kiosk. There are also walking paths along the point and a children’s playground.

Wonderful family area – just a little out of the centre of the action.
