"Not Posh, but upcoming area with great facilites..."

At first glance Laurie Road is nothing to write home about, but this little suburban street has a lot to offer. There is practically no through traffic so the road is very quiet, and there are plenty of trees.

The homes here are a mixture of 1970’s brick houses, and beautifully renovated ‘Manly’ cottages and Californian Bungalows. This is a street that, in my opinion, has a lot of potential. The biggest draw card for Laurie Road is the extensive facilities available nearby, many of which are in walking distance.

There is a Coles Supermarket close by on Koorala Street, and there is a bakers, greengrocers and café on Rosebery Street, where you will also find furniture and appliance stores. For the coffee lovers Belaroma’s Coffee headquarters a short stroll, and here you can roast your own beans, enjoy a cuppa and buy your favorite grind in bulk.

There are plenty of other services on nearby Condamine Street, including many shops, takeaways, and city and northern buses. The pre-school is also located here. A couple of large reserves are situated nearby as is Manly Swim Centre and Manly Lagoon.

Manly West Primary School is a two-minute drive.

It’s not as posh as it’s close neighbours – Balgowlah and Manly, but this offers good value for money in an up and coming area.
