Reviews of Glenfield, NSW

13th August 2021

"Tranquil atmosphere with easy going community. It feels like Home!"

I decided to buy a house in Glenfield after spending about 4.5 years in Chippendale - a suburb close to the CBD.

What attracted me most is the strategic location of Glenfield with excellent connectivity to almost all the major business districts. Commuting to Sydney CBD wasn’t too hard far me due to the excellent train network and because of the motorway.

Glenfield is affordable, has everything in close reach that anyone need on a regular basis and it’s quite peaceful suburb. While I can have a wish list and expect more from suburb, but honestly I never regretted my decision of moving to Glenfield.

"Great place, very green, convenient and helpful neighbours without being nosy"

We have lived in glenfield for more 34 years and still can’t find a place with the convenience that we have at glenfield.

More restaurants would be nice as well as reductions in light pollution with street lights focused on the street with shade to prevent the light going upwards so that everyone can enjoy the amazing stars at night which we used to see 30 years ago. This also will encourage young astronomers.

Casual power house museum is just 5 mins train ride from glenfield which has a lot of events for all ages in art, music, Sydney film festival great walking paths and a great restaurant.

"Quiet and Peaceful Suburb*"

Everyone here is friendly, street is clean, the little village atmosphere makes you feel like home.
Transport is good, express train to the city during weekdays.
It's a happy wonderful place to live:) and the housing price is still affordable comparing to other areas.

"Glenfield a homely suburb"

Glenfield is a wonderful place to live.
Great shops, doctors schools and sporting clubs and social clubs nearby.
There are some beautiful gardens and quiet streets. You can often hear the birds singing and there is a lot of trees and flowering bushes. Many churches and great happy communities very close by and wonderful shopping centres cinemas at Liverpool Campbelltown. Also very close to Hospitals and Specialists.Lots of friendly clubs and restaurants a short drive for eating out.
It's a quick train trip to the city and great train and bus rides linking to other areas.
It's a happy country city little village atmosphere.

"Good nice quite place"

It's good for Train Hub, you can get direct train for City, Parramatta, and Airport.
Only few small shops but Glenquarie, Casula warehouses and Liverpool is not so far.

"Just feel like home"

Everyone so friendly~ just feel like home...

I don't worry so much about restaurant/eating places, nothing beat home cooking
I see a lot of improvement in this area, specially next year, when Costco & Ikea finish their construction
Will become busy suburb, but that's fine with me, more convenience I can get...

Best place for family specially new family with young kids

Researching about this suburb as we plan to move out after our current rent is over! How is the amenities like? Eg. Shopping centre, groceries, etc??

Unfortunately nothing is in walking distance in the Mirvac estate. There used to be a path that would have allowed easy access to Costco but that has been closed due to safety concerns with Kids crossing such a busy road. There are lots of shopping centres close by at Casula, Macquarie Fields and both are about a 5-10 drive so not too far.

"Better place for bringing up small children in a peaceful environment"

We chosen this place to live because of the convenience to raising up our small children in a quite and peaceful environment. Both of our children had a good schooling experience in the primary school. Now my son studying in the reputed selective high school next door. It is only 7mts walk to this school and my younger one had only 15 mts walk to the good ranking Glenwood primary school. Walking is safe and we encounter any kind of problems so far after living here. There are few surgeries close by and a new medical center for emergencies. Dental services, physio are available in the suburb itself. Many young families with kids are living here mainly because of the affordable prices, child care centres, good public transport especially train service, and good nearby schools. Spiritual needs can also met in this suburb. We will not hear any bad words or yelling or swearing and that indicates the socio economic status of the inhabitants. It is very important when raising our children in a positive environment. The main lack of this suburb is the lack of big shopping complexes including eating out places. When we look back this suburb is developing each year with more facilities. Now we have a new multistory car park, upgraded station (before we have no lifts in the station), new estates like panorama, mirvac, glenfield circuit and parkside glenfield, new medical center etc. Roads are clean and houses and surrounding are kept clean and green. Friendly neigbours, they are resources in times of need. It is still not yer overcrowded like Liverpool so I like this place to recommend for families with kids.

"Good place for family living"

Quiet and nice place to bring up a young family. Many young families in the area. Big shopping options with Costco and Ikea going up in the Crossroads Home-maker centre in the next couple of years so will get a little bit of a buzz.

"Agree with the other reviewers"

It is nice enough here and don't have any problems with anything and the neighbors are very friendly.

One of the negatives can be the noise from the motorways.

So if you can stay away from the motorway as the noise from trucks can be quite loud but then again we live right next to the motorway

The pub at the crossroads does good pub meals too

"Small town community feeling"

Moved from St George area to the panorama estate and think it is fantastic with the closed community feel it has. Awesome for families who you will see walking around the estate with their children.

Far enough away from Liverpool and the hoons and bogans but close enough if you need to do some shopping. Personally prefer doing grocery shopping in nearby casula as it has e better class of people.

Great quality people live here and you can tell they are in a decent socio economic state by the way they dress, the cars they drive and the way they look after their houses.

Don't know much about the old glenfield but personally would only chose to live on the panorama side of glenfield - which is actually closer to Prestons and Casula than even the old Glenfield

"Quiet peaceful suburb"

It is a quiet suburb conveniently located. It is only 35 minutes journey to city on East Hill Railway line. There is a shopping mall at Glenquarie and has a reputed selective school. I have been living in Glenfield for more than 8 years and find this suburb very safe, peaceful and quiet.

"Great New Mirvac Estate in Glenfield!!!!"

Positives
- Close to public transport
- Express trains to the city
- Major train station stop (all trains would stop here)
- Pool, Tennis Court, BBQs etc (with community strata - would cost more if you maintained yourself)
- Many young families
- Easy access to road transport links (M5/M7/Hume)
- Fast drive to the beach off-peak (25 mins to Brighton ++ not many western suburbs have this luxury)
- Close to shopping centres of Liverpool and Campbelltown
- Judging from community pictures - demographic is very mixed
- Has the feel of a closed community

Negatives
- 50 mins on the train (up from my 25-30mn at the moment)
- Peak hour M5 is atrocious
- Western Sydney (Hotter in Summer, Cooler in Winter)
- Having to deal with conversations at work (you live WHERE????????)
- Proximity to large scale govt housing (ie. Macquarie Fields Govt Housing Estates are 10-15mins drive away)
- Having to pay strata for a house (however reasonable @ $250/qtr)

"Perfect starting suburb"

I have lived in glenfield for a long time and i can safely say it is one of the best. Commuting is excellent due to buses, trains and the new glenfield station being constructed. Very child freindly, lots of child care, primary schools, and selective schools with easy transport to school (one bus trip)I have found that me house and land value has skyrocketed, up to twice the original purchase price, and it seems to be getting higher by the month.

"A Good community feel within the Mirvac estate"

The new Mirvac estate has lifted the feel of glenfield. it looks modern, clean and good for first home buyers. the new car park next to the train station has definitely solved some of the parking issues

"Busy Place"

Public transport is not great as parking is an issue. Neighbours are busy bodies. Rent price is high.

Don't agree
- New train multi-storey 300+car capacity carpark built next to station
- Station undergoing major rennovations as a major hub
- Busy body neighbours = friendly neighbours
- Rent high? Are you joking? Try and find a better value, better quality house for rent or even house/land package within 40mn train ride of Sydney

walter_yahh

BTW - am talking about the new Panorama estate in Glenfield not old glenfield

SatisfiedResident

Parking is not an issue any more with the new multistory car park adjacent to Huurlstone School

Vista_Resident

yeah i agree the new carpark is great...(but a little further from the station that I would have liked)

goku1907

In the reviews of commuter park people say that it gets filled by 7 - 7 30am. Is that true?
