"Private and quiet"

This lane is located in a tucked away location enabling residents to live in a quiet street without any traffic noise from the main roads. The lane is only a short walk or drive from the local shopping precinct, public transport and schools. It is fantastic for family living as it facilitates for people who like the outdoors and leafy surrounds, whilst having the convenience of the shops at their door step.
Pros
  • Excllent location
  • Convienent
Cons
  • Expensive to purchase your own home.

"Quiet, leafy, friendly and safe neighbourhood."

McGowans Lane is a super quiet lane with very friendly people and a fantastic park for the kids. Since living here (3 years) I have only heard two loud parties - and they both finished by midnight!!
The only shame about the area is the occasional graffiti attack, but this seems to happen in all suburbs in Melbourne, not just Burwood. It has never been a problem on our property - just in the neighbouring park. Local shops are great and there is a fantastic gym nearby. The kindergartens and schools are also of excellent standard. A lovely place to live, with easy access to the Yarra valley, beachside suburbs and the beautiful suburb of Canterbury.
