"Overpriced and narrow windey streets"

It's a bit of a posh ghetto if there is a such a thing. I've lived here for about 5 months and cant wait to move out. It's so cramped, the houses way too close together. My neighbours are so close by it freaks me out sometimes when they yell at each other. the noise from the Gateway is constant, although it is very handy if you drive a lot. The airport is 20 mins away. However, They should put up a soundproof wall like they have at other residential neighbourhoods along motorways. It's pretty to look at and all, although some parts of it are looking a bit rundown. To me the houses seem way over the top and mcmansions rule. I'm going to move to a leafy area on acreage with a verandah. Why aren't more new homes built with verahdahs! All you can see around new areas is a big double garage door. The internet access in my house is poor, can only get ADSL1. The TV signal drops out on rainy days and I try to remember what it was I like about this area, but I just cant. To coin an old Aussie phrase, this place it up itself.
Pros
  • Close to most things
  • Accessible
Cons
  • Feel less Australian here.
  • Too many roundabouts
  • Relatively expensive
