"On of the best places to live in West Lakes"

Having purchased a property there over a year ago I can now comment on this beautiful locale with conviction.
It has many advantages and the first is that no home on the Drive backs onto the busy West Lakes Boulevard.
The area is so serene especially at night when even with the windows open we can't hear any background noise.
The neighbours are friendly and very helpful.
The exit from the Island is quick as it is the first street feeding of Corcoran drive.
Because of its locality it is a short walk to West Lakes Mall and the cafe's on the lake which we incidentally visit every morning to get a warm cup of coffee on our daily exercise routine in the warmer months.
We also are the favored "Grand Parents to visit" by our grand children who look forward to our short walk to the fresh water lake via Blue Sails Court.
The streets are very safe for evening walks which we do in the warmer months.
Because of our proximity near the lake I go Kayaking often and this is the Jewel of the Crown for me.
Paddling around the lake early morning is one of life's great pleasures.
We love the cool breezes we get in the evenings from the South West in the warmer months.
It is definitely like the old advertisement used to say "Taking a year round holiday at home".
I still get that "I love this street" feeling whenever I drive home and drive away.
Everyone takes pride in their homes and it shows.

"One of the best streets in West Lakes!"

An extremely well kept street, with an abundance of spectacular gardens and lake views. A park in front of the lake offers a great place to relax or fish. Wide streets offer great parking and traffic noise is a rarity. Neighbours are extremely friendly, with my family knowing the majority of the house owners quite well. Two of our neighbours are bakers, often bringing over pastries and other food, as well as a green grocer owner who is always providing us with fresh fruit and vegetables. Overall, Sir John Marks Drive has a great community feel. A great place to raise a family as it is close to many different public and private schools and is within only minutes of AAMI stadium, 20 minutes of the city, 2 minutes from the West Lakes Shopping Centre and the Reading Cinemas. There are also several restaurants in West Lakes which provide a good in dining and take away experience. Property prices are continually rising, meaning buying in this street is a good investment. Currently we are number two most expensive street in West Lakes, narrowly in front of an equally impressive Martin Court.

Sir John Marks Drive- a great place to live!
