"Riverside Suburb"

Putney is located within 10-15kms from Sydney CBD. Situated in the middle of Ryde and Homebush many of the Streets within the suburb benefit from park and/or water views. The suburb is very popular among families and many of the older homes have been knocked down and re built. Many benefit from large size blocks and many sit elevated with high side positioning allowing for fantastic City views. Transport is fantastic and the residents are friendly ranging from families, professionals and retirees. The suburb has done very well with capital growth over the years. I have never lived in Putney though I did purchase an investment property many years ago in the suburb. Close family live in the suburb and they love it!

"Putney"

I have moved to Putney a couple of years ago and loving it ever since. It is a quiet and peaceful suburb and is close to major shopping centres like Rhodes and Top Ryde. Further out are places like Chatswood and Strathfield so it is quite convenient and 'central' in a way. There are nice parks everywhere as they are mostly along the Parramatta river and people are really friendly. Transport to the city are the river cats and buses. The fact that it does not have a train station so it may not easy to get to certain places unless you are a driver, however not I would care much because being in a quiet/peaceful suburb far outweighs the convenience factor for many reasons.

"The greatest suburb!"

We have lived in Putney for 4 years and absolutely love it! Putney is great for singles, couples and families - bascially everyone. It has a lovely country/village atmosphere - you can buy a bunch of flowers and leave your money. It has a fabulous cafe - the coffee is perfect and the food will rival any inner city cafe.

The downside is traffic. Drivers are avoiding Victoria Road (speed camera at Holy Cross College) by diverting to Morrison Road
