Pole homes abound in Koolewong and Tascott and are suitable for houses on the steep sloping land. Pole homes are dry and don't have the drainage runoff and mold issues that a brick house does at the bottom of a large hill. Regarding the train noise, Brisbane Water Drive and the freight trains are quite noisy. Sound travels upwards and pole homes, if they have lots of windows and lightweight building, will need some sort of soundproofing if you are sensitive to noise. If you buy a brick home there may be less railway noise but make sure the drainage around the property is up to scratch. Carefully consider the aspect of the property if you want solar power.

Koolewong is a very small, clean, safe area and look at the weekly crime statistics on Brisbane Water LAC Facebook page and you will see how low crime the suburb is. Koolewong missed out on the ADSL era of internet access but in 2016 got onto the NBN.

Koolewong is near Woy Woy waterfront which has the beautifully renovated Bayview pub, which was once a notorious dive. The town centre of of Woy Woy is walking distance, OK for general shopping but is underutilized and developers are pushing for the usual railway line apartment armageddon deal. They have not got their way yet. The walking path down to Woy Woy is pretty loud due to traffic. Great if you have a headset and roller blades or if you ride a bike. There is the off chance that you could get mowed down by someone on an assisted mobility device.

Good GP practice at Point Clare. Good Medical center at West Gosford. There has been steady commercial development around Erina to West Gosford, which will eventually transform into a passable Central Coast inner city just 7 km up the road from Koolewong.

The water and valley views are pretty special.

I have a friend whose back yard was right on the train line on a battleaxe block. She said that you could hear the trains more at the house in front of her which was further from the train line. She also said it was just something you got used to and it never bothered them at all.
