"expensive houses, a bit racist but overall nice neighbourhood for families and raising chidlren"

Nice area, however some people there can be quite uneducated, backward thinking and rude. They are trying to look nice and welcoming however, a foreigner with different skin color or accent will never feel not at home here. Good for traditional Australian families, others not so much welcomed. Most people here don't earn much but think they are rich due to their net house worth. If you can avoid snooty locals (mostly on low income) somehow, it can be quite nice area to live in. If you're Asian or Indian, just don't bother.
Pros
  • nice, clean, safe and quiet
Cons
  • some racist people with prejudices, expensive, far from transport

"Great suburb for access to private schools and city"

Leafy, quiet and peaceful. Tree lined streets with manicured gardens and beautiful homes. Close to top North Shore private schools and good transport into CBD for working parents. Close to St.Ives Village for shopping.

"nice place to grow up"

I grew up here in the 70s and 80s- was very friendly, green quiet and safe. Train to the city is good but always very crowded at peak times coming from Hornsby to city. I think the demographic has changed from all young families now.
