Rouse hill by a mile . Future hub for north west. Beaumont hills lie next to RS and is already a class suburb. Professionals and young families, u cannot go,wrong
As Martin above said, the David Road (Oakhill/Castle Hill) area is by far the best suburb. Classy, newly built homes (such as closer to the primary school) or lovely, large family homes (such as further up, towards New Line Road). You have the local Oakhill shops within easy walking distance (which features a newsagency, grocery store, bakery, pool store, restaurant, preschool, etc.), several parks with playground equipment for the kids, bike paths, tennis courts, basketball courts, etc., two nearby primary schools (one literally a short walk away, the other a 5 minute maximum walk), as well as a highly sought after High School which achieves fantastic results in both academic and non-academic (such as sporting, community recognition, volunteering, fundraising, etc.). Not to mention you have Castle Towers, an amazing shopping centre with everything you could ever need within minutes, as well as the train station that's currently being built there that has a train every 4 minutes (no joke). In summary, the Oakhill area not only features everything a family could ever need (a wide selection of shops, schools, playgrounds, etc.) and an amazing sense of community, it also boasts a fantastic reputation, and is definitely a highly sought after area.
Settlers Close - by far the classiest, smartest, quiet street in Castle Hill
Kurrajong Heights... a short commute, but some beautiful homes, with magnificent views. Cooler than the Hills during summer which is great, and lovely in winter in front of a roaring fireplace. Local shop in Kurrajong Village, Bilpin etc cute, and for more comprehensive shopping at Richmond, Windsor, Rouse Hill not far away
The hills district is full of great little communities. It all depends on what amenities you are hoping to be by. Three that I feel are quite popular include:
- The Knightsbridge Estate (around Ridgecrop Drive) it has a great little shopping centre and school, with good bus transport and sporting facilities
- The Oakhill Estate (around David road) with a small community shopping village and great primary schools, this is also within the catchment for the desirable Cherrybrook Technology high school.
- The Crestwood Estate (around Crestwood Drive) Great Parks and sporting facilities and easy access onto the M7.
There are several other villages spread out throughout the Hills, if you would like more info on these, feel free to contact me direct!
I would say Castle Hill, being near the metro and shops.
It’s hard to answer depending on your preferences. I personally think Castle Hill because of Castle Towers and the metro nearby. Close to transport and services.
The North Ryde and Ryde areas are extremely popular with emerging families and highly sought after. Ranking them number 6 in Australia.
As a previous resident to the Hills Area i would go a further 20 minutes and move to the Hawkesbury. You get better value for your money. You can purchase 1/4 acrea, or 1/2 acrea homes for nearly half the price of a home in the Hills. And you are only 20 minutes away.
Anything in the Hills is great. Family friendly with great amenities.
