LifestyleGardens and families thrive in the peaceful locale of Turramurra.
Located on the Upper North Shore of Sydney, it’s an easy 40 minute train ride into the CBD, making it highly desirable for executives who prefer to hang out in the ‘burbs.
Turramurra is a tranquil mix of leafy, quiet and safe - so naturally it has “family” written all over it. It has large homes with generously sized backyards, wide tree-lined streets, a selection of great schools and lots of sporting fields - so there’s not much this lovely locale can do wrong.
It’s easy to pop down to the local cheery shopping village when you’ve run out of bread and milk; to dine out in one the tasty eating places dotted along the Pacific Highway; and keeping the kids busy is ‘childs play’ with the huge array of soccer, football and tennis clubs on offer.
When you feel it’s time for a big shopping splurge you can easily head just 10 minutes north to Hornsby, or South to Macquarie and Chatswood shopping centres to get your fix.
PeopleYounger families, older families, even those that used to have families, love Turramurra. If there are couples and singles to be found here, it’s probably because they grew up in the area, or aren’t ready yet to leave the comforts of home.
The vibe is friendly, relaxed and approachable with enough disposable dollars to live life to the fullest on the weekends.
HomesWhilst property prices are fairly hefty in Turramurra, there is a broad range of old and new residences in this sought after suburb.
The leafy streets are dedicated to medium and large family homes, set on large blocks of land with oodles of trees and the Pacific Highway lined with older and new unit developments.
