"Acres of parkland on my doorstep"

I am one of the original residents of the estate having purchased the land in early 1998. I was attracted to the estate for many reasons - being surrounded by parkland and trees was pretty high on the list. The proximity to Kenmore State High School was an important consideration allowing my children to be able to walk to school and of equal importance was the ease of access to the city bus on Brookfield Road.

I love walking along the bike path along with many other residents who enjoy a stroll for fitness or to exercise the dog. The dog off leash area is very popular and although I opposed its location I am pleased to see that it is well used and providing an exercise outlet for local residents. Over the years there has been a noticeable increase in the number and variety of birds in the area as the gardens and trees have become established, the sound of birds singing is something that I really enjoy.

Kensington Circuit is almost exclusively owner occupied and consists of a mix of single level and double storey executive class homes. The highest sale price in the street stands at $780,000. It can seem a little tricky driving into this little pocket but the benefit of low traffic volume make it all worthwhile. There is a short cut for pedestrian traffic across the bridge that connects us with Branton Street and up to Brookfield Road.

Homes do not come available very often in this street and rarely last long when they do. I highly recommend my street and the area in general for anyone looking to move here.
