"Glenwood"

Glenwood has a nice village feel to it. It is close to public transport and the station making it easy to get around.
Rent is high as are housing prices.
It is close to many schools and shopping centres.
Overall for western Sydney it’s a great suburb. Quiet and peaceful.

"Beautiful peaceful suburb"

We moved into Glenwood 3 years ago and we like it here a lot. The neighbourhood is great for families, it is peaceful and green but at the same time within easy access to Sydney's major employment centers ( Norwest, Macquarie Park, Parramatta, City).
There are lots of parks, lakes, cycle ways and all kind of sport facilities for kids in Glenwood itself and at nearby Bella Vista. Local schools, particularly Caddies Creek school, have a good reputation and the area is serviced by buses from most private schools around Hills area. There are plenty of childcare options available too.
Glenwood streets look well-maintained, leafy and beautiful, houses have nice gardens and backyards . Glenwood doesn't feel as congested and "concrete" as many of the new estates at the fringes of Sydney . The area has access to recycled water which really helped to keep the garden green under water usage restrictions in the past year.
Close proximity to Bella Vista which has some nice restaurants, gyms and entertainment for kids (not to mention work opportunities) is a big plus for us too
Glenwood is very convenient in terms of transport which is important for us as me and my husband work in different ends of Sydney. I travel to North Sydney for work and Bella Vista station is within short walking distance from our home. Sydney metro is very contemporary , trains are available every few minutes and there is also ample parking available straight at the station. It takes less than an hour (door to door ) to reach office for me. My husband is catching a t-way bus to Parramatta from old windsor road. There are also plenty of t-way buses going directly to the city plus M2/M7 makes it easy to access other parts of the city.

"The poor man's Hills"

Glenwood has a different socio economic mix and has always been the poor man's Hills suburb alternative. It's more Blacktown than Hills.
Falls under Blacktown council. That said, it's family friendly and a cheaper option, you can get a very nice house for much less than the nearby Hills suburbs. I would recommend for first home buyers. It's a "wait and see" suburb. Try to buy as close to the Bella Vista train station as you can.

The average house price is $1,400,000 to $1,700,000 and going up all the time. Not exactly poor man's suburb.

"New to Crestview Dr"

We recently bought on Crestview Dr and have been pleasantly surprised as first timers in the North West. It is a quiet family oriented suburb with access to transport and main highways. Since buying here I have been surprised at how resilient prices in Glenwood have remained over the COVID period. It doesn't seem like this part of the North West is seeing much downturn. My reasons for Glenwood is that it is established and most people seem settled. We had the choice to build in the Ponds or Schofield but those areas lacked culture and charm. Glenwood definitely has its own vibe about it.

"TUSCAN WATERS SIDE OF GLENWOOD IS THE BEST AND HIGHLY DESIRABLE IN TERMS OF CAPITAL GROWTH"

Those wishing to buy in Glenwood should be looking on the Tuscan waters side as it is the best area of Glenwood. Bordering on Bella Vista which is basically at the top of Greenhill Drv you will be paying premium for this part of Glenwood and transport is a short walk. Glenwood is a strange suburb in that it has different sides of entry to it, This governs its value.
Best side, in terms of investment and capital growth is TUSCAN WATERS hands down. It has the least traffic issues, and those living on the otherside know how busy it gets in the morning and afternoon. I live in the Tuscan Waters area and i have real estates knocking on my door wanting to sell it, promotional material all the time even phone calls. The demand is high and with the railway only a year or so off, prices will only go up , never down. There is virtually no land available on this most desirable part of Glenwood. See for yourself on Domain, or realestate you will be hard pressed to find homes for sale in the Tuscan Waters Estate.

If there ever is a area re zoning for whatever reason, it will become bella vista its that close. How its part of the blacktown council is beyond me. The Tuscan waters side is no where near blacktown at all. Surrounding suburbs are bella vista, baulkham hills, kings langley, rouse hill, castle hill,....geographically its north west of sydney...according to wiki

Glenwood is a suburb of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Glenwood is located 33 kilometres north-west of the Sydney central business district in the local government area of the City of Blacktown. Wikipedia

.its really the hills in fact.

Blacktown is west of sydney according to wiki
Blacktown is a suburb in the City of Blacktown, in Greater Western Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Blacktown is located 34 kilometres west of the Sydney central business district. Wikipedia

So those considering buying, whichever way you look at it, Glenwood and specifically the TUSCAN WATERS side is your best bet!

Not really tuscan water side is quite far for stanhope gardens shopping centre and other keys spots . That's why currently other areas of Glenwood are outperforming tuscan water side due to the large investments in Norwest of sydney.

nat2008

Why would you go to Stanhope gardens shopping centre if you are closer to Castle towers, Bella vista market town and Cirka shopping centre is walking distance? Plus Norbrik T-way bus stop has frequent busses to go City, North Sydney, Parramatta, Westmead hospital, Macquaire University, Rouse Hill and more.

nat2008

Totally agree with the review regarding Tuscan waters.

Yes, Tuscan waters side of Glenwood is amazing! I call this area Glenwood Gardens! Its green and beautiful. The Norbrik T-Way bus stop provides access to so many bus routes. The M7 Cycleway (37 kms of uninterrupted pathway) starts at this part of Glenwood and very easily accessible. We do most of our shopping at Circa Retail (250m) , Norwest Market Town (2km) , Castle Hill Home Centre , Castle Towers, Rouse Hill or Winston Hills. We rarely go to Stanhope gardens.
The best part with this side of Glenwood is that the houses have lots of room in between them, unlike new developments in Glenwood where the houses are cramped together.

So do most people hv 2 cars in home...pls share ur personal findings...thanks heaps

stuartf7

Having lived on the Tuscan Waters side for 11 years now..i can truly say its the best place to be. Its the most expensive side as it borders on bella vista and baulkham hills. I have more than doubled my purchase price already. No other part of Glenwood is better. Visit it and you will see why.

I had forgotten.... Tuscan Waters has some sort of Bella Vista inferiority complex and this review makes it plain to see. We had money and choices to buy in all the neighbouring suburbs. Tuscan Waters got crossed off the list first because the agent kept saying that "you can see Bella Vista from here". We used our hard earned $$ to buy the best possible living experience and the decision to buy near the lake shows in the prices today. Its no pissing contest - live where you feel most comfortable within your budget... not where you think others are going to judge you by.

"Amazing surburb in north west of sydney"

I have lived in Glenwood for couple of years , This is a wonderful surburb where you do no need to worry about safety .
We have a good neighbors with a mix of community . Unlike other suburbs in Sydney dominated by particular ethic groups like Westryde for chinese and westmead for indians , Glenwood has equal number of white Australians , Europeans , Indians and Chinese .Which is type of environment I always wanted for kids .
Moreover , the most of the people here are engineers , accountants and doctors , so this gives a very professional type of environment.
Me and my husband travel to city for work , 616x express bus is a straight bus to work and have high frequency . Also , it has its own shopping village and walking distance to park lea markets , stanhope shopping centre , leisure centre and 5 mins drive to castle hill and baulkham hills . My kids are still not schooling yet , but my neghbours say 90% of study in parklea school and caddies creek attend the selective schools which actually explains the environment .

Why would you post such a misleading piece of info?
Children who get into selective schools are coached either by parents or tutors not by public school teachers

"Nice Neighbourhood - Good & Friendly people"

What I love about Glenwood is this suburb offers a perfect suburban life style. Glenwood is surrounded by green well maintained parks, a small lake where you can see duck families swimming around , good children playground and full of nice looking houses with beautiful front yards. So, you can have a nice relaxing walk or jogging around the neighbourhood . It has only one supermarket and no plaza in this suburb. However, it is an advantage ... less cars coming to fill our main streets. Therefore, the neighbourhood is very safe and quiet but not scary at all. Many families live here. Also surprisingly , it is very easy to access to the public transport especially during Monday to Friday.. buses come frequently ...no waiting more than 10 minutes Direct Bus to City .. to Macquarie .. to Blacktown... Parramatta.. Castle Hill ! T-way bus line ,Parklea Market , petrol station , some fast food restaurants are on the border Glenwood line.

"Great nifty suburb for families"

We moved to Glenwood few years ago and we started renting. We fell in love with this suburb and hence bought a house and settled permanently. We bought it a bit later into the boom and hence paid more than what we expected but cannot ask for more. Great neighbours. Stroll to woolies, schools and parks, cannot ask for more. Never had issues with noise or burgalry or anything. It is a bit of a drive to where I work, but I love my drive. When I have to go to city, just catch a bus, Bus stops are everywhere, there are 3 in walking distance to my house and closest one being just 2 mins. For anyone having young lings we care about who lives in the suburb as it also determines the school prospects and Glenwood ticks all the boxes. Not sure about investing as we are owner occupants. In terms of eating out, I am more of menulog person if I do not feel like cooking. If I want to go someplace cool to eat, all places are at driving distance. Soon enough we will be getting new trains that will take off the stress of driving. And Parklea market is being redeveloped, and once we get one look at the prices of the apartments being built there, we will be glad that we own a house in this area :-)

"40 minutes to the city by 616x, 617x bus via m2"

I just wanted to add to all the wonderful reviews about Glenwood (we live on the other side of Glenwood which also known as King's Ridge estate and has no shops or anything except the houses, kids play areas, walking paths, pond and T-way bus stop!) that when we go to the city, we take a bus from Norbrick bus stop (near the bridge to Bella Vista over the Old Windsor road) and it takes app. 35-40 minutes to Victoria Building bus stop in the heart of the Sydney City. The bus goes via M2. Cheaper than train and hassle free, the bus frequency is every 10 minutes pick hour and every 20 minutes off pick. There are express busses to Parramatta, Westmead, North Sydney. I also love the fact that it takes us about 5-7 minutes to walk to the Bella Vista Circa shopping center via the bridge, and where you can find a medical center, chemist, dry cleaners, alterations, hair dressers, cafes, food court and Woolworth with liquorland of course.
The houses in the area are big, look really well cared after with beautiful front yards and good size back yards. Neighbors are really friendly. Narrow streets plan doesn't allow speeding and good when you have kids or pets. Very convenient to go anywhere we want whether it is a beach (we go to Dee Why and it takes us about 40 minutes via M2) or the city. The area is still developing and the house pricing going up all the time. As well as that more businesses are moving their offices to Norwest Business Park from the City due to higher rent in the City, which means more people will want to live nearby. Glenwood is one of the nearest suburbs to the business park, only across the road, but the housing prices in average $250,000 - $300,000 less in comparison to virtually identical houses in Bella Vista. We lived in Glenwood for 16 years now and absolutely loving it!

"Great suburb for families"

Glenwood is a great suburb to raise a family aged from the very young children to teenagers or young adults. It has access to many close shopping centres providing a variety of options. It is only an hour (on average) into the city or to the airport. There are a range of houses to cater for a range of incomes and family sizes. Close to Bella Vista which has a lot of work opportunities. It is close to the new private hospital or 15 minutes to Westmead. The area seems to be still developing and has not reached its potential as yet. We have lived here for 14 years and watched it develop over that time.

"Close to Everywhere"

Situated on the fringes of Norwest Sydney this quiet area in bustling with a combination of young families, retiree's and professionals. There are plenty of shopping options nearby with its own shopping village featuring Woolworths, medical centre, newsagent and pharmacy, a slightly larger shopping centre is only 5kms away in Bella Vista in the Circa complex. Glenwood is also in close proximity to Castle Towers Shopping Centre, Rouse Hill Town Centre, Blacktown Westpoint, Winston Hills and Norwest Plaza.

There are 3 primary schools two public and one catholic and a 7 - 12 high school. there are also 3 daycare centres in the area.

Easy access to the M2 and M7 motorways and the TWAY bus system. The area also features 4 sporting grounds with tennis, playgrounds, cricket pitches and even an outdoors gym.

himynameisdrew

Great Street!! I lived right down the road from there for over 10 years, since the estate was under construction. I think this part of the area (Glenwood) is beautiful, unfortunately, yes, we were burgled on one occasion but that is because our property has easy access (it backed onto the vacant land behind the M7). Travelling to Rhodes is definitely a mission I myself have had to do that on a number of occasions however Crestvview is just a moment from the T-Way getting a bus to the train station should be a hassle. Street is beautiful no advice needed, might be a bit annoying if you live where everyone parks their cars for the bus but otherwise I think its a nice street.. Caddies Creek seems like a good school, a friend of mine who is a school teacher in the area sends his children their with no dramas. I also tutor guitar to a lot of students that attend Caddies Creek and they are always so nice and polite.

Thanks again for your feed back. Fairmont cct is very nice. I looked around. Neighbours seems to be good as well. Also noticed few bikies around there. How did you travelled to Rhodes. I checked in 131500 and I got catch a bus to Westmead which approximately take 20 mins then from westmead to Strathfield and to Rhodes. Total Journey nearly 1 hour. Is there any better way? However it is easy for my wife, she got to catch only one bus to macquarie park. Also people talk about recycling water, We never heard about that. Is it only in this area?

"Excellent location, safe and relaxing suburb"

I bought my house in 2004 and I have no intentions to sell. Simply put, I cannot find a better combination of quiet suburban lifestyle with nearly perfect motorways connectivity (M7 and M2).
What others tend to forget is the enormous advantage of having recycled water straight for the council, subject to NO regulations or limitations. Read green gardens all year around, clean driveways and cars and so forth. For me, it is priceless.
I know that there are significant differences between streets in Glenwood, so I purchased in Casino St, away from noise yet close to park and other facilities. In addition, I have a perfectly sized block and a big 2-storey house - more than enough space for me and my family.
In addition - perfect Foxtel satellite reception, ADSL/2+ syncing at 20 Mbits with Telstra Bigpond, 9 meters swimming pool, veggie garden, gazebo, large pergola, ... Make the ideal lifestyle.
I love it!

Is Calvary Grove a good street - we are looking to buy?

Ferdinando

The best way to determine if a street is good for you is to take a day off in the middle of the week, and spend a few hours of the day parked there and/or walking around. Listen to noise levels, look at people's activities. Then repeat the same for a typical weekend (Saturday preferred). Once you determine that noise levels and type of neighbors are OK for you, then you have your answer. I did the same. Regarding people commenting negatively on this suburb, they either purchased an overpriced property at the wrong time (poor research), or are looking for a completely different lifestyle (I lived in the city for many years and I would never expect anything even remotely similar - advantages and drawbacks in both cases).

I cannot comment on schools since I have no children. I never had any burglary issue, the only annoyance happened with the occasional graffiti by some youngsters that have nothing better to do with their life, and the inevitable neighbour leaving barking dogs outside overnight.

"Hidden suburb with great lifestyle opportunities"

Glenwood is a very handy and upmarket area where people with families and friends thrive around its good schools and recreational parks. This area is within easy reach to all the motorways and is strategically located near to one of Sydneys most expensive areas, Bella Vista, Baulkham Hills.
Glenwood has quiet and safe streets with beautiful houses and greenery.
I enjoy Glenwood most due to its location with respect to the schools here...both primary and secondary are within walking range. I also love the fact that almost everyone here comes from the same socio-economic background affording very similar houses and thus similar interests.

"A good investment for our first family home!"

We bought our house in Glenwood 2 and a half years ago and have not looked back. Glenwood is a quiet neighborhood, perfect for families or couples buying their first home. There are plenty of parks nearby to walk the dog and playgrounds for young children to play.

While the local shopping centre at Glenwood doesn't have much to offer (Woolworths, newsagent, bakery, hairdresser, GP, Pharmacy, Kebab Shop and Asian Grocery Store), there is a plethora of major shopping centres and decent restaurants within a short drive. You can get to the city, Eastern Suburbs, Northern beaches very quickly via the motorway and public transport seems to be good (although I have never really used it!).

We have found a very good GP in Malvern Road where you can get an appointment with short notice most days and there are a number of specialists practicing at Norwest which is 5 mins down the road. Child care is not too hard to come by and the rates are good compared to other parts of Sydney that I am familiar with.

For the money we paid for our lovely house, and what we could get for it if we sold it today, we are very very happy with our purchase in Glenwood!

"Overpriced and Overrated!"

I have lived in Glenwood for 4 years and have jumped out as soon as I could. There is nothing here that is really attractive. If you want to eat out anywhere you have to drive out of the suburb to elsewhere. But the worst thing is that it is a investor's nightmare. Once the shine wears off, you realise you have bought a house that is overpriced and has a higher estimation of itself that it is actually worth. There are much better houses for better prices in other suburbs that have better family areas and shops. The whole area is pretty full with no room for development and is in the right position to see its value come crashing down, dragging investors with it. I lived in a great house, but was just not a great investment to keep a hold off when you actually look into the future of this overpriced and overrated suburb.

Could You give me example of better prices in other suburbs (other I mean equally good)

himynameisdrew

Investing in Glenwood is a terrible idea to begin with unfortunately.

NT2

Glenwood is for families with steady house price growth. The past 12 months especially have seen very good returns home owners. There is also good rental return.

Shouldn't blame others because you bought something that you thought was over priced. And if you didn't make money on a house you purchased ( supposedly) in 2006 and sold in 2010, then you did something very very wrong.

I've now lived in two rentals in Glenwood - one on the Tuscan Waters side which is indeed beautiful and calm, and one close to the schools and the supermarket which is also beautiful and calm, but also very handy if you have school aged children. The ONLY thing missing is a wide range of eateries and to be honest, if those were available then the suburb would not cope with extra traffic from those who aren't local. What we do have is a Pizza Hut, KFC, Hungry Jacks, Outback Steakhouse, local pizza and pied and a couple of small coffee shops within walking distance if you're on the non-Tuscan side. If you're on the Tuscan side then it's a walking distance to Bella Vista and Norwest where there are more options. It's enough IMHO.
