"Schofields is a suburb to watch for!"

Schofields is a place to watch if I were you! It is located just halfway between Rouse Hills to the east and Marsden Park to the west, both of which are rapidly growing. There is also an upgrade of Schofields road traversing Schofields connecting Rouse Hill and Marsden Park. This gives Schofields residents an easy access to M7 via Richmond Rd as opposed to the congested Windsor Rd. Not to forget, the preferred route of future expansion of north west rail link is thru to the Marsden Park via Schofields. Potentially Schofields train station will be a busy and critical interchange connecting north west rail link to the main T1 line eventually leading to airport line!! Wait and see in the next 5 years!
Pros
  • Potential future growth (due to growing neighboring suburbs)
  • Sustainable growth
  • Excellent public transport in near future
  • Neighbourhood
  • Nice Railway Station
  • Planning
  • Roads
Cons
  • socio economy gaps between new and existing residents
  • Too remote to live now

"Good but without a car you can't do anything"

If you like country side, not afraid by long train travel to the city or traffic jam while drive to the city, this place is ok.
A car is mandatory as bus lines are very poor.
There few shops and a wooly near the train station, but for the rest you have to drive at least 15 to 20 min when traffic is good.
We definitely looking for going back closer to the city.
Even the kids ( 4 and 7) think this place is to quiet and there are upset to take the car to move

"An ordinary suburb!"

Hi, just went to schofields on the other day to look for some properties but when I got there I was in shock!. As some people wrote before that it is an upcoming suburb, but to me I think that suburb will start to develop in next 5-10 years of time and that is a long time away. The area close to quakers hill and the ponds is quite developed but other than that there's nothing there except for farms and animals. The Schofields station is well constructed but what you gonna do with just the station as it surrounded by remote areas. I don't think moving to that area right now is a good choice unless you like living in those type of areas.
Pros
  • Nice Railway Station
Cons
  • Too remote to live now
  • Don't see it as developed area
  • Some roads

glunk71 Too remote!

Rouse Hill town center is less than 5 minutes drive away. Castle Hill is 10 minutes away and Parramatta is 20 minutes away. I can be in the city in 45 minutes.

jaysvee Well, i am not saying about shopping options. Saying "remote" means that you see the area surrounded by station is all open nothing developed there. Only the area close to quakers hill is developed with good homes. But now many builders have bought the land close to the station, so yea still don't prefer there to live.
Well, thats my opinion and everyone has there own review.

Jay Subianto
Jay Subianto Jaysvee...it's not so much about how it looks like now though. It's about how sustainable it can grow for years to come. For me it has a huge potential to grow sustainably. What would happen once they extend north west rail link to Marsden park via Schofields, with an aim to connect to T1 line? It's an interchange! As for the road traveler, it's more to do with how fast you can get to M7. The best way to achieve that is to get to Richmond Rd in Marsden Pk which is way wider than the Windsor Rd!! With the upgraded Schofields Rd, Schofields residents have even more options on how to get to M7 (Windsor Rd, Quaker hills pkwy, Richmond Rd, etc).

"Schofields - living amongst the Hills District without the cost!"

Schofields is the place for the next generation of families from the Hills District. Those who grew up in the Hills District and want to stay there but are not willing to foot the massive financial pressures, like our parents did by having a house in Castle Hill, Norwest, Baulkham Hills, Kellyville or Rouse Hill.
Schofields has more to offer than your average suburb, it is nestled in behind all the brand new homes in 'The Ponds' estates so it is perfect for the young family wanting to settle in an area that will have astronomical capital gains over the coming years.
The development of the "North West Growth Centre" will ensure a massive increase in dwellings and infrastructure including new roads and a new train station.
The suburb has two convenient options for shopping, Stanhope Gardens and the Rouse Hill town centre on Windsor road.
Location in respect to transport could not be better with Windsor rd, Old Windsor road, M2 and M7 all within a few minutes drive and of course our very own train station.
The spirit of the neighbours to my experience has only ever been endeering, the area offers great peace and quiet away from the main roads and there are no issues of congestion or parking. The shopping centres offer great medical services and a 5 minute drive will have you arriving at the brand new Hospital at Norwest.
Norwest Boulevard is one of the largest business parks in the north west region and provides more than enough quality job opportunities for those located in Schofields. The area is a safe one with no need for its own police station and recreational parks and football fields are in abundance. The area also offers a number of child care options within a few minutes drive and also has a number of primary and High schools particularly in the Alex avenue area of the suburb.
The brand new train station on Burdekin rd gives commuters the option of taking trains directly to Parramatta or the Sydney CBD. All in all, im a proud owner of a home in Schofields and look forward to the fruitfullness and increase the area has to offer and would recommend any family moving to Schofields.

"One of a Kind - It's Paradise Personified"

The minute we laid eyes on the place, it was like an oasis - far removed from it's surrounds. Not that there is anything wrong with the vast bush reserve and parklands surrounding it and shielding it from typical "suburbia". We lived in West Pennant Hills prior and so I am fascinated by the lush greenery, topography, birdsong and bush surrounds here at Stonecutters Ridge (so akin to Cumberland Forest!) and it so easy for me to say despite the Western Sydney location, the surrounds easily compare. We fell in love with the area, even long before all the amenities have been completed....just envisaging the finished product was in itself euphoria and so we promptly secured a block (they are not the current typical "squishy" blocks being sold everywhere currently and the price is not that bad at all) and so we are now on the verge of fulfilling our dream home and living in "Paradise". Not to mention my second dream of chasing birdies and building a decent handicap next to Greg Norman who so happened to be a part of the Golf Course's design. Kudos to Medallist Holdings for their vision!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Colebee, what a beautiful place to live!"

We recently purchased a block of land at Stonecutters Ridge and its such a beautiful place, once the Greg Norman Designed Championship Gold Course is completed mid 2011, this estate will be outstanding. If your looking to live at Stonecutters Ridge, then be quick prices are rising and its well worth the $$$. Location, location, location as they say!!
