Reviews of Rutherglen Avenue, Northmead

"Bushy and quiet"

The street is nice and quiet and the residents pretty much keep to themselves. The homes are all older style but well kept, it's a nice area. There are a lot of tall gum trees around which give it a lovely bushy outlook, but they also drop all kinds of nasty gum and seeds all over the washing, car, etc, as well as the threat of falling branches.
We lived near the bottom of the hill and found the air quality in winter to be abysmal, lots of the homes in the street and surrounds have woodfires and you quite literally drive down into the smoke haze which sits in the basin at the bottom of the hill near Kira street. Absolutely dreadful for asthmatics and others with breathing disorders.
Traffic is nice and quiet in the street itself, but it could sometimes be awkward getting onto Windsor Road, or back in via Rifle Range Road, especially in peak hour. What is good is the loop up to Ventura Rd where there are traffic lights.
The small shopping centre at the top of the hill has an awesome Chinese takeaway, but as most of the street is in a ditch, really, so television reception is pretty bad without fancy boosting devices or really tall aerials.
