Its a lovely neighborhood of families with school going children. Local amenities are at a short walk so convenient but at the same time not too spread out in the residential area. This provides a peaceful area to live with shops still close by. Off road parking is available and plenty of parking space at all times. Down the road is Nork Park which has play area for kids and a club for grown ups to socialize. The Park holds a summer festival of its own too! Overall, a really good place to live for families of all stages
