"The Dress Circle in East Ryde"

We have lived in East Ryde since getting married in 1972 and as our family grew we moved from Lumsdaine Ave to Moncrieff Drive and eventually downsized to 50 Melba drive in April, 2015. Love this street as so many of our neighbours are lifelong friends and the estate is unique. So close to the M2, Lane Cove Tunnel, Macquarie Shops 12 minutes away, and convenience store/buses a mere 150 metres away.

"Opera Singer Streets"

Named after Dame Nellie, Melba Drive is one of several streets in what was once known as the “Dress Circle Estate”, now called East Ryde. The homes here were mostly built in the 60s and 70s and their architecture reflects this era. Level blocks mean creativity needs to be employed to make gardens interesting, which many of the homes here manage to pull off.
