"A nestled suburb"

I've lived in The Gap since 1983 in two locations, it is a lovely green and leafy suburb situated against state forest land. This is the ideal place for people with a bit more disposable income who like the traditional quiet suburbia setting. If you like that sort of thing you'll never leave, the only way people have left my street is when they passed away often then their grown children would move in so there are quite a few people whose family have been here for at least 1 to 3 generations....
