"First home buyers oasis"

Firstly, I don't work in real estate, never have, probably never will, I just bought a place in Herdsman because it suited my needs. It's the first place my wife and I have owned, and we bought in the first home buyers rush. One of the big reasons we bought was price, and location, I work north, my wife works south, we needed somewhere in the middle.

I can't begin to tell you how awesome our experience has been but I'll give it a try. The area is so beautiful, seriously, the lake out the back is perfect for walking, picnics, cycling, or studying if it's your thing. When you're done with that I recommend you visit the organic cafe, it's hiding in between number 47 - 49. Highly recommend the muffins and a coffee on a saturday morning! On the subject of food the gourmet pizza shop in the complex where herdsman meets John Sanders, is brilliant. There's also a doctor down there, and it's the old GP style clinic. One doctor, who remembers the last time you came in, and he's a really friendly guy.

Our neighbors are great, we had dinner with them a few of them tonight actually, and everyone has been really friendly. There's a lot of new home owners moving in to the area for the same reason we did. We live in a strata, and it's worked out great for us, council is very friendly and receptive.

Not too sure on the standard of schools as we don't have kids, but they're all very close. Just as the public transport and the city is. Depending on where you want to go you may have to get the bus to the train station first, but it's no big drama.

There's not many "retail" shops, but the city isn't far away and I prefer to be a little further away from the shops. The nightlife isn't huge either, the herdsman is decent and theres several bottleshops, all with decent selection. Again I didn't want to be near the nightlife, just close enough that if I wanted to go I could.

We're in the City of Stirling, which has been fairly good, one of the better around anyway. I was impressed with their recycling system, you don't sort anything, just drop it in the bin, and it's sorted at the centre so everybody recycles without evening knowing it.

Internet access is fine, both wired and 3G broadband work well, get great mobile reception, and pay TV isn't a problem.

What else.. Traffic isn't too bad.. I'm yet to find a situation where I have to wait for an extended period of time. I would highly recommend this street to anyone, for singles or couples the apartment blocks are good, for families with children the houses across the road are great, there's even a retirement village.
