It can be difficult finding a place to live that strikes the perfect balance between close proximity to all of the essentials, and a village-like atmosphere that turns a suburb into a community.
Lane Cove is the best of both worlds: a picturesque Lower North Shore suburb near the water, just nine kilometres from the Sydney CBD, that comes with a vibrant culture.
“Lane Cove has a charming village atmosphere. The village offers a multitude of gourmet restaurants, local delicatessens, bakeries and boutique shops and not only caters for, but encourages al-fresco dining,” explains Peter Coulton, Divisional Director of Residential Projects, at Savills.
With that being said, it’s little wonder why so many people are looking to live within Lane Cove’s historic confines, but it can be difficult to find somewhere affordable to live among the grand homes lining the streets.
“Lotus,” a luxurious new development in the centre of the action, is giving buyers the opportunity to enter the highly sought-after market.
And with a majority of the apartments already sold, it seems purchasers are flocking to own a piece of one of Sydney’s most beautiful suburbs.
Mr Coulton says the majority of buyers have been owner-occupiers from the northern suburbs of Sydney. 
“There is strong demand for quality apartments in great locations. Buyers who move to Lane Cove want quick access to the CBD, proximity to the excellent schools and local amenities,” he says.
With just 69 apartments in the entire complex, there are a number of configurations to suit every lifestyle.
Designed by award-winning architects, Nettleton Tribe, residents have the choice of one, two or three bedroom apartments; some of which come with studies.
While buyers can select from two colour schemes; a neutral, light palette, or dark and moody tones, to ensure every taste and preference is considered and catered for. 
Combined living, kitchen and dining areas connect through to an expansive balcony; the open-plan space creates the perfect area to entertain.
Only the best quality fittings have been installed throughout, such as stone benchtops, timber floorboards, and stainless-steel European appliances.
Residents also have access to the expansive and landscaped rooftop terrace filled with plenty of greenery to soak up the balmy Sydney sun, enjoy a barbecue with friends, or simply gaze out over the sunset with a glass of wine in hand.
The options here are endless, as are the variety of views from each apartment, from Lane Cove River to distant views of the city skyline. 
Each apartment comes with car parking, but when it comes to location, Lotus is conveniently situated within walking distance from the very best Lane Cove has to offer.
Whether that’s a latte with friends at one of the hip cafes, a delicious bite to eat at one of the restaurants, or a leisurely look through the various boutiques and gourmet provedores.
And of course, for those who like to immerse themselves in nature and get the heart rate racing, there are plenty of walking tracks weaving through lush bushland nearby.
You can also kayak along the Lane Cove River, or play a round of gold at the Lane Cove Country Club, while the Lane Cove Aquatic Centre is within easy reach.
