Police are investigating the sudden death of a woman on Auckland's North Shore.

The body of the woman, who is aged in her 30s, was found at the Girrawheen Drive address this morning. Officers have begun a forensic examination and have cordoned off the shared driveway to the home.

The cause of death is unknown and the scene will be closed until a pathologist has examined the body on site.

The woman had been living at the address.
