"A village feeling - near public transport, motorways, shopping, selective & private schools"

We love living in this leafy quiet suburb - with it's village atmosphere. When take our early morning walks - people greet each other with a friendly smile and a 'hello'. We have public transport nearby, excellent shopping possibilities at Hornsby and a good selection of public, selective & private schools to choose from. This is the perfect area for people who want to enjoy their weekends away from the bustle - but still be able to get to work quickly during the week.

"A serene piece of paradise in a fast paced city."

As more and more younger families more into the area the housing is being updated. We have good parks, an oval and the suburb is close to the norths shore's top private schools. Friends who visit, and who live in the inner city, say that it reminds them of being away at a country retreat having the birds singing and the mist in the winter time. Anyone can find something wrong with any suburb, but to nit pick only means that the suburb is quality.

"A wonderful place to live"

Westleigh is a quiet, leafy and friendly suburb with no through traffic. It has its own ' village' style shopping centre. There are parks, tennis courts and it has its own day care centre and primary school. Crime is relatively unheard of and the streets are clean and the majority of the residents are very houseproud and look after their gardens. The birdlife in Westleigh is prolific and there is also a dog park. Westleigh is close to Hornsby Shopping Centre and has easy access to both the M2 and F3. Public transport poses no problem as the buses run frequently and there are many train stations with parking to choose from within a few minutes drive.

"Nice Place But"

Westleigh is a nice place except for all the hoons in their NOISY P plater cars which treat the streets like it's a racetrack,
