"Has it all, really"

Gordon is both genteel and vibrant.
It epitomises the leafiness of Sydney's North Shore and retains most of the area's original late 1800s early 1900s charm.
It is one of the most family friendly suburbs around with strong neighbourhoods and good supportive neighbours who are there to help but don't want to live in each others' pockets.
Gordon is where my mother grew up and where we ... a family of five ... have lived for nearly 22 years.
Gordon quickly feels like 'home' as soon as you move in.
It is close to everthing without being on top of everything. Transport (rail and bus) are excellent and it is in a top area (zone) for some of Sydney's best public and private schools.
The shopping strip hosts a swag of really good (but not overly priced) restaurants, so eating out is always a treat.
