The village life
Those who know the Lower North Shore will understand the value of being close to green, open spaces. No matter what type of home you live in, or what lifestyle you lead, access to parks opens up enormous scope for recreation, exercise and social interactions. And when nature is close enough to experience without leaving your home, it can enrich both your quality of life and wellbeing.
Your immediate local hub is a busy one – with the Forum at its centre providing a selection of amenities and access to both the railway line and major bus routes along the Pacific Highway. St Leonards is also synonymous with Royal North Shore Hospital, North Shore Private Hospital and the adjacent Gore Hill Oval, as well as a Fitness First Platinum, Virgin Active and ClimbFit gyms. For a nice meal close to home, try out The Moody Chef, Green Gourmet or The Rice Den.
RIPPLES OF RELAXaTION
Stroll down to the nearby harbour to swim alongside the city skyline or soak up waterside vistas.
The Newlands and surrounding masterplan form part of a much bigger vision for the area, thanks to the exciting St Leonards and Crows Nest 2036 Plan. Developed by NSW Government, this plan will guide the transformation of existing areas to integrate more green space, public infrastructure, new homes and connectivity via upgraded pedestrian and cycle paths. The plan also makes the most of the planned Sydney Metro ‘City and Southwest’ line, which will run from Chatswood, under Sydney Harbour, through the CBD out to Bankstown.
There will be a convenient Metro stop in the heart of Crows Nest, and through strategic rezoning, this is set to become a precinct in itself, with a new blend of residential, commercial and office space approved for above the station.
