"New Estate or Old Pine Forest?"

The name Lexia is a little confusing, because it is allocated to a land area adjacent to Gnangara Road, but is also the name of one of Ellenbrooks newest estates. The area near Gnangara Rd is still mostly pine forest and I'm not sure if this will ultimately be removed. However, the new Ellenbrook Estate towards The Vines is simply a 'nod of recognition' to this area and not an official suburb name. Ellenbrook names each of its new developments and has a specific character in mind for each eg: Australian style housing or Tuscan in an earlier development. Lexia is very attractive and has a minimalist look crossed with Australiana - not sure that this is ''official'' - just how it appeared on my weekend drive through the area! It does still look very clean and new at this point, but is also very streamlined. This area is much further from the shopping centre so it does mean a trip in the car, but there is a school nearby so families are catered for. Restaurants, take away food and medical services are all within the suburb. As Ellenbrook continues to grow there will simply be no need to leave the area for anything - unless you cannot do without the mark ups of a David Jones store!

Naturally this review is not really of the suburb Lexia - but may help alleviate some confusion with the name.
