"One of the best suburbs on the Central Coast"

I have lived here in the Magnolia Estate for two years now, all I can say is that I have never seen or heard of any problems in Hamlyn Terrace. If you drive through Hamlyn Terrace the houses generally look beautiful, you won't see many old or run down houses here. It's a very quiet place to live. From a strategic point of view it's one of the more convenient places to live too. Woolworths and Coles at Wadalba are within walking distance. Warnervale train station is not far either. There are plenty of bus stops that take you to Lake Haven shopping centre, Wyong, and Tuggerah. The M1 motorway is very close, and Soldier's Beach and Norah head are about 15 minutes drive away. Wyong Hospital is only a couple of minutes drive down the road and there are many medical centres close by, Ambulance stations and medical facilities.

Before I bought here I had done a lot of research on the area. I had asked the developer why some of the new areas that were being developed not far from Hamlyn Terrace were cheaper. He told me that at the back of some of those suburbs were some housing commissions and run down houses and that Hamlyn Terrace was more developed so that's the reason why you could get more land for the same price in those suburbs. He had told me that Hamlyn Terrace was definitely the higher end suburb of all the other suburbs being developed around the area. Now that I have lived here for 2 years I would have to totally agree.

Most of the people that I have met within the Magnolia estate are people who pretty much had the same idea as I had. That is they didn't want to pay the ridiculous hiked up prices for a home near or around Sydney. Why not spend half or a third of that money instead here and be close to the beach in a beautiful suburb in a brand new estate? I have found that a lot of the people who live around here are people who came from Sydney or within Sydney metropoliton areas.

It's very quiet and peaceful here, I always feel safe and I have never seen one person ever cause any trouble. If you walk around the block it's a very pleasant atmosphere. I don't have any children, but I have been to the local public school to vote and it looks like a very nice school.

There are many more estates and houses being built here, and Hamlyn Terrace is rapidly developing. There is also supposed to be a new Town Centre being built at Warnervale soon.
