“Frank and I had known about the Manor Lakes estate through visiting friends who came here in the first stage of the development. We always liked the nice and quiet country feel you get here. But for us, the school was the real clincher and really made up our mind to make the move.” Frank and Kylie Bozanic (Manor Lakes resident)
