Downsizers love Mona Vale, and with good reason.
It’s mostly flat, and has good access to both the beach and Pittwater.
And as the retail and commercial hub of the northern end of the peninsula, the suburb has an impressive collection of shops, restaurants, businesses and community facilities.

The B-Line bus service makes travelling to the city quick and easy.
Mona Vale has more high density homes than some of its neighbours, including apartments and townhouses.
These make a popular choice for people looking to downsize from large family homes in the surrounding suburbs.

The past decade has brought some new apartment developments to the suburb, and downsizers have made up a big proportion of buyers.
Among these was the Infinity building, a luxury boutique complex of four apartments set across three unique, architecturally designed pavilions.
All four were quickly snapped up when Infinity was built five years ago, but one has just come to market, and is again expected to attract downsizers.
Simon Gourlay, of Domain Residential, said the apartment presented as new and was the size of a home without the upkeep.
The single-level, ground-floor apartment has 143sqm of internal living space, with a total of 306sqm on title, including a private yard with lawn and garden, and huge double garage with storage.
“This ticks every one of the boxes on the classic downsizers’ wish list,” he said.
The property is for sale by private treaty, with a price guide of $1,950,000-$2,145,000, through Simon Gourlay, of Domain Residential.
