"Beats city living thats for sure!!"

We moved here six months ago from Melbourne. Previously we have lived in NSW, Brisbane and Manchester England. This is Heaven on Earth. Nothing at all beats country living, with the modern conveniences that a new home has, shops for the necessities not too far away and lots of green tree's, grass and plenty of wildlife. The area is growing fast ( so the locals tell me) so I'm a bit concerned about the one local primary school being able to cater to so many children.
Theres quite a lot of families with children, teenagers and toddlers but also quite a lot of retired people too. A good balance for a peaceful and happy community. At first the Covenant that is attached to the land was a concern but it actually gives peice of mind that the neighbours aren't going to be filling their block up with rusted out cars or having their relatives living in a caravan temporarily but actually staying ten years. lol You know the types of housing estates I'm talking about.
I don't regret buying a home here at all. After searching for 20 years for a place to call home we have finally found it and are here to stay.
