"Awesome family suburb."

School: St John XXIII - Preschool to yr 6 & St Mark Yr 7-12. I know Preschool to yr 6 is a good school.
A lots of parks, walk/bicycle path, playground, basketball courts.
Professional lives in the area.
Nearby shops & dining: Stanhope Village, Parklea Market, Rouse Hill town centre, Ettamogah pub
Sports: Stanhope Leisure Centre with swimming pool, gym, tennis courts.
Library: Denis Johnson Library .
Transport to City, Parramatta, Macquarie, - Hills buses with dedicated bus lane - 70%, takes around 1-1.2 hrs to the city. I am expecting the travel time to improve once M2 North Connex project finishes in 2019. - North West Rail Link would hopefully be operational by early 2019, this would give another option to commute to work.

A great place to live and raise a family. I have been living in this suburb since 2006. And I think it will only get better.

"Highly Regarded Suburb in Blacktown Council"

This suburb is excellent in the fact that is very close to great amenities - Great schools, shops and transport. The best thing I have found is being so close to Rouse Hill & the Hills Region (Castle Hill etc) however on the other side of Stanhope Gardens are suburbs that aren't as highly regarded so there are good and bad parts of this area. It is, after all still a Blacktown suburb and does have its pockets of crime and (sorry) scary people. It has become what I would say is over priced in recent years also, but that does make the resale value 5 stars because of this growth. You get a mixture of people here - some really friendly, and others not so. I live in a quiet section in a friendly street and have found the area to be quite child & framily friendly which is a real plus.

"The place to be."

Stanhope Gardens is a five star destination.

The area is well supported for entertainment with cinemas at Rouse Hill, great eateries at both shopping centres and of course the Ettamogah Pub.
The area is friendly and safe.
I highly recommend you come and have a look.

"Great for young families"

I have lived in the area for 8.5 years and have watched the suburb expand with the introduction of the leisure centre, shopping centres (Stanhope & Rouse Hill), public & private schools and the new T-way.
This area is great for young families as the homes are relatively large with smaller blocks (easy to maintain) and the parks and bike tracks well make up for any loss in yard size.
The schools are well presented and whilst my children attend the catholic school, I have only heard good reports from both primary schools.

"Newbury estate - perfect community for young couples and families!!!"

We love Stanhope Gardens!!! We love our custom modern house and garden, our neighbours, the clubhouse facilities (bbq, pool, tennis courts), choice of parks, cycle ways, recycled water and award winning estate design.

We bought land here in 2003....and since then, we have seen this area explode! Stanhope Village Shopping Centre has grown - Coles, Kmart, specialty shops....including fantastic hairdressers (The Hair Bar).

The opening of Rouse Hill Town Centre has been a major bonus for this area - including cinemas. The outdoor indoor shopping is like no other. We can't bear being in stuffy air conditioned shopping centres anymore.

The T-way is awesome, I used to catch a bus to Parramatta - 35mins in peak hour. Commuting to the city would be a bit different, I have heard catching the bus to Wynyard takes 1-1.5hrs. Or you could take a bus to Westmead Station.

Norwest Business Park provides great employment. My husband works at Woolworths Head Office, and often comes home for lunch and visits us at home.

My daughter attends Kellyville Ridge Public School. The teachers, the school, and the community of parents are all fantastic. She loves it there.

What are you waiting for?

"Quite, modern suburb with all ammenities"

I've lived in this area for about five years, and have seen the neighbourhood grow. All in all, a great suburb if you don't mind the commute, and prefer to stay away from the hustle bustle in a nice open area. Here's why (in no particular order):
1. The Rouse Hill Town Center and Castle Hill Towers are both close by, as is an ALDI store.
2. The school precient has a public primary school, a private school and a playschool all meters from each other.
3. The medical center is open 7 days a week.
4. I love the neighbourhood Chinese restaurant; there're also good Thai, Indian and Italian restaurants in the shopping village.
5. The walkway is great for evening jogs or a stroll with the dogs.
6. The neighbourhood is quite, green and safe.
7. There's recycled water and gas in this eco-friendly neighbourhood.
8. It is well connected to the city during peak hours (buses every 10-12 minutes, takes about an hour one way) and to Parramatta during the day (about 40 mins).

"Project Home Suburb"

This suburb is probably one of the best project home suburbs I've visited. The leisure centre that is in this suburb is great, has a good pool and gym.

The houses tend to be on small blocks. The streets have been planned quite well.
