"Western Sydney's best kept secret"

Minutes from everything Penrith has to offer, Leonay was built around a golf course and is bounded by the start of the Blue Mountains and the Nepean River. Most houses are actually built on the start of the rise of the mountain and the area has masses of Blue Mountain vegetation. It has a real country feel, and the stresses of life disappear as you drive into the suburb, and the pace slows down. Although the suburb was developed in the 60's-70's most homes have been renovated and many extended and modernised.
Pros
  • Clean, Green, Peaceful & Quiet whilst being close to all Penrith's facilities

"Leonay is the Best Place to Live in Penrith City"

A beautiful & peaceful corner with the boundaries being the mountains, river & M4 Motorway. Really only resident traffic because Leonay is not on the way to anywhere. There is lots of green space, river walking & cycling tracks all within a short drive of Penrith Westfields & CBD. I always love coming home to Leonay whether it be following a days work or an extended holiday. It looks beautiful and provides an escape from the chaos & pace of modern living.
Pros
  • Clean, Green, Peaceful & Quiet whilst being close to all Penrith's facilities
Cons
  • The bus service is mainly morning & evening with few services throughout the rest of the day.
