"The inner west suburb "busyness" forgot"

Ashbury is suburbia the way it ought to be, and you won't believe it's just 10km from the CBD. With its vast parklands, period charm, family friendly feel, uncongested and clean streets... It's the suburb inner west congestion forgot.

Flanked by Ashfield, Canterbury, Campsie, Dulwich Hill train stations and light rail, as well as CBD bound buses, you'll be spoilt for travel choices. All this, minus the hustle and bustle that is synonymous with suburbs with train stations - all this minus the noise, pollution and minus the ugly aesthetic that comes with the territory. All this minus the "busyness".

It's fair to say Ashbury is a peaceful neighbourhood, so much so, it even has a park aptly named "Peace Park". Very befitting!

There are quaint cafes in the area and some more popular ones in the neighbouring suburbs. When it comes to dining out, again you'll be spoilt for choice.

Schools are among the best in Sydney. The area is very tightly held, is on the conservation list, meaning it's heritage listed; so no high rises or fluorescent houses are permitted. It has a great community feel. Amenities are nearby. Sports centres and clubs, shopping precincts, are all conveniently placed - close enough to walk to, but far enough to escape from.

"A great place to live for families with young children who want a safe, quiet, friendly neighbourhood with the convenience of a 20 min drive to the Sydney CBD."

We've been in Ashbury for 13 years and are raising three young children. The community is friendly and everyone looks out for one another without being invasive. The parks in the area are vast and well mainatined. There are several schools in the area giving families choice of either a private or public education- both of which have a fantastic reputation. Whilst Ashbury is a beautiful, small suburb it's proximity to shopping centres is fantastic; take your pick Ashfield Mall, Westfields Burwood, Summer Hill village, Broadway shopping centre and Haberfield.

"Affordable Inner West living with space"

Ashbury is ideal for people wanting the convenience of living near the city but seek some space and a backyard. Property sizes and prices vary from large and expensive to small and affordable.

Ashbury has many heritage houses giving the suburb it's charm and character and it is still possible to buy a "renovators delight" making it popular with first home buyers. There are plenty of parks in the area and a good bus service to the city and train stations. There is one large public school and three high schools also in the area. Corner shops are dotted throughout the suburb and Ashfield centre is only a short drive/bus ride which has all the major supermarkets, library and restaurants. The locals comprise of various ethnic backgrounds as well as a mix of singles, young couples, academics, professionals and young families.

The suburb is currently looking forward to the newly approved Canterbury Town Centre redevelopment along the Cooks River which, in the long term, will bring outdoor cafes, restaurants and retail shops.
