Gordon is a genteel suburb popular with families looking for a neighbourhood with character and charm, home to many Federation and Californian bungalow homes.
Like nearby Killara, Gordon boasts important historic homes. “Eryldene” was designed by one of Australia’s most outstanding architects William Hardy Wilson, and the home and impressive gardens are now a National Trust and state heritage listed and open to the public. The nearby Arts and Craft “Tulkiyan” designed by architect Bertrand James Waterhouse has state heritage listing, while the distinctive log cabin style home “Nebraska” in Yarabah Avenue is also heritage-listed.
The heart of Gordon is centred on the Pacific Highway corridor and a new village arcade that is bursting with restaurants, the largest library and community centre in the Ku-ring-gai area, its own post office, major retail stores and supermarkets.
Gordon railway station provides an easy commute to the city, while Chatswood and Hornsby shopping precincts are only a short train ride away. Gordon is also in the top zone for many of Sydney’s best public schools with easy transport options to leading private schools, making the area popular with families who want to relax into living in this quiet, protected corner of the Upper North Shore.
