Castlecrag Property Performance Report
The roads of Castlecrag follow the natural contours of the land rather than using a grid plan, which was characteristic of many suburbs in Sydney at the tim, reflecting the first residents belief that the built environment should respect the natural environment. The trees that bordered the roads in Castlecrag were not removed and the roads were barely visible from above. Furthermore, the layout of the streets also provided residents with views of the landscape and are influenced by the Griffins family who moved there after designing the Canberra landscape in the early 1920’s
