"Great Place to live"

This particular area is less than 30 minutes to the CBD, and two minutes to major shopping centre and amenities.
Howlett road ends at the dam and is not a through fare road, the benefits are peace and quite, with no unsavoury types driving around, very safe.
So if you have a large family or wish to have some land, where the neighbours cannot shake your hand from your window, this is the place for you.
We have lived here for 20 years, it is truly a nice place.
