"St Andrews / Bow Bowing good to grow up children?"

Hi

I am looking for an expert /good opinion about St. Andrews/ Bow bowing. I am currently living Warwickfarm for 6 years , and i visited couple of times to St.Andrews. It looks very very beautiful and nice quiter.

In terms of house, it looks perefectly good , which i am looking for to live in the matter of money and size .

But, still not sure about the area / people/school peoples.... if any one knows / lived there for many years, please let me know.
herbsahoy
herbsahoy You will love St Andrews. I have lived here for 27 years. Great Value and highly under rated.
The local school is excellent, my 4 children have all gone there. the high schools are also very good and have never had any problems. We do have private schools close bye as well. some of the neighbours kids go and they seem very happy. the shops are very handy affordable and makes life so much easier. I would say go for it.

"My Kids Happily Grew Up Here!"

I have lived in Dorrigo Crescent, Bow Bowing NSW for 20 years and find this peaceful, trouble-free, and family oriented street and suburb. My kids happily grew up here. Kids know each other and play together. You would easily spot someone new as families have lived here for a long time. Many fun places to go to and do -- biking on bicycle way inside Bow Bowing Park with no cars around; tennis game at tennis court; socials at community hall, tumbling at parks, etc. I find it easy to live here with train station to airport & Sydney just 10 minutes walk; available day care; primary school just across main road; high school, church & sports ground only a kilometre away.

A green, leafy & tranquil scenery always presents itself each day from the balcony & garden of our house.

I feel safe in this secluded, exclusive estate with only 2 road openings for entrance/exit.

I am proud to invite friends, relatives and anyone else to live here...

"Safe quiet suburb - Friendly family oriented environment"

We have lived here since 2006 and must say overall it has been a very good experience.

Travelling to the city for work everyday is a fine using the train. Toll roads are probably the biggest letdown for anyone living in the west, but if you travel out of peak times the trip is an easy 40min drive. Well worth it if you think about it : Live in a shoe box and less time on the road, OR live in a mansion with 2 lounges 4 bedrooms on a huge block of dirt with your own pool and room for everything for an extra few mins!

As for the area, it is a kid friendly area with plenty of places to take your kids. Taking a daily walk around the residential area is pleasant as the majority of homes are well cared for and maintained on quiet streets away from main traffic. There is also ample open space and hills that give a feeling of freedom.
Pros
  • Peaceful
  • Easy access to M5 & M7
  • Access to everything
Cons
  • Under priced & undervalued

"Quiet Affordable Suburb"

I lived in Bow Bowing for nearly 10 years before moving closer to Macarthur.
- Neighbours are friendly, the kids in the street all know each other and mingle together after school.
- Suburb is close to the Hume Highway/M5/M7.
- Interline Bus Company runs a service every 30 minutes during the day time to Minto Station.
- There's a large park with playground equipment for families to enjoy.
- Being an elevated suburb with hills, some houses offers great views of the surrounding suburbs and scenic hills riding range.
- Pre-school, Community Centre and Tennis Court at the Suburb.
- If working in the city, closest stations are either Minto or Ingleburn - 5 - 7 minutes drive either way.

If I had my way again, I would not have moved closer to Macarthur and stayed at Bow Bowing.

"We love it here, fabulous location and great neighbours!"

We have lived here 9 years and love it. Walking distance to shops,drs,schools,preschools,station,bus stops and seconds away from the m5. Sounds busy? Definately not, a lovely little suburb really peaceful and neighbours that arent all over you, but are there if needed. Terrific value for money and brilliant access to everywhere. Its only small so not many houses come up for sale here, but if you get the chance jump on it you'll love it!!

"First suburb just outside Sydney, 5 minutes from Casula, without the price tag"

A secluded area with great landscape, tranquil settings and close to M5, M7 and heaps of shopping. Located half way between Liverpool and Campbelltown makes it ideal to work in Sydney and weekend on the south coast. Many considerate families live here, it's like an estate but without body corporate fees / strata (we all know that's a waste of money).
