"Foamcrest Avenue - Maintenance Free Living"

Foamcrest Avenue has seen a number of developments off the past 5 to 10 years and now comprises a mix of modern townhouses, older style unit blocks and a number of freestanding homes.

Foamcrest Avenue is ideally suited for the professional couple or downsizers who want a property with minimal ongoing maintenance that is close to the commercial and retail hub of Newport.

The main benefits are definately it's close proximity to the beach, park, public transport and shops, however traffic would be slightly higher than average.

Unit blocks within the street are also ideal from First Home Buyers who want to remain on the Northern Beaches or the investor seeking a well positioned unit with strong rental potential.

"Foamcrest is great for easy living."

Foamcrest Avenue, Newport is a very popular street. It starts at the right hand juncture of a strange roundabout and carries through, running parallel to Barrenjoey Road, until it reaches Neptune Road.

Foamcrest would not have been considered a busy street in the past, but it has grown and expanded – and has become subjected to vehicles associated with new building work, as well as the building work itself.

The avenue consists now, of almost wholly townhouses (new, modern and expensive), some older apartment blocks and new ones, and a small smattering of old houses.

The new Newport Coles supermarket rears on to Foamcrest and traffic here is now a big issue. There is some underground parking but access isn’t great.

There is a post office on the corner of Foamcrest and Robertson and at this point there are a couple of great cafes on Robertson – particularly Burnt Fingers – they have an al fresco courtyard, and do great breakfast and coffees. The poached eggs are the best I’ve ever had (try the ‘pittwater’) – and their lunches are so well priced (BYO). I don’t know his name but the chef (and I presume owner) is wonderful, and a great character.

Foamcrest is a great street for those wanting to buy luxury townhouses in a great maintenance free location.
