"Great community for young professional couples/small families"

This area has attracted a lot of young professionals and families with small children due to its location. It is 20 minutes drive and 15 minutes train to CBD and 20 minutes train to North Ryde which is home to many multinational companies. There are a lot of MNCs just walking distance to Liberty Grove including Nestle and HP which makes this an ideal place to live for people working in those international corporations. You are just a stone's throw away from Ikea homebush mall which is a modern shopping center in Sydney and you are also next to Sydney Olympic Park which has best sporting facilities in the whole country.

The downside is that it is a relatively small community and it can be hard to find a place in Liberty Grove because very so few come on the market due to very high demand. If you plan to move there, give yourself at least 3-4 months to find the best apartments because there are only 30-40 sales in the whole year which also goes to show that residents are relatively very happy with the area.

Compared to Rhodes which is becoming a concrete jungle with little or no planning, this community is privately situated and very well planned. You also come under catchment area of Concord West Public School and it is just an easy 5 minutes walk from most parts of Liberty Grove compared to Rhodes where you would have to cross a very busy Home Bush Bay Drive, a train line and walk for 15 minutes and most of the Rhodes area is excluded from school catchment anyways.
Pros
  • Best Lifestyle anywhere in Sydney
  • Best for families with small children
  • Community feel and 24 hours on-site security
  • Next to the best cycle routes in the country.

"The Center of Everything in Sydney"

5 min to IKEA and childminding service. 10 min walk to Rhodes station, 14min to Concord West. 10 min to Concord West Primary. Close to Concord Hospital. Walk, drive or ride bikes to Olympic Park. 10 minute bike ride to ANZ stadium, Meadowbank Ferry. 5 min drive to M4, ANZ stadium, Flemington Markets, DFO, Top Ryde Shopping Centre. Lovely bayside walks, both in Homebush Bay and Bray's Bay. Friendly people sharing parks, pools and walkways. Phoenix restaurant and others at Rhodes shopping centre. Gyms in each apartment building as well as a mian one in centre and Rhodes has commercial gyms. Concord West Primary scores excellent results and kids are happy there. In terms of nightlife, Olympic Park, in 2010, hosted AC/DC, U2, Metallica, the Big Day Out and The Royal Easter Show. With olympic standard venues, Olympic Park has Sydney's best stadium, tennis courts, swimming/diving pool, BMX tracks, running and cycling routes and athletics tracks. It also has excellent, quiet parks with quite a rural feel at night. There are top quality hotels and Business Parks in the area, the former catering for big events in the park. 3 Rugby League sides, State of Origin, the RL Grand Final, one AFL team, including semi-finals and the 20/20 Cricket are played here. None of the events mentioned above seem to have any impact on life in Liberty Grove except for the fireworks show at 9pm each night during the Royal Easter Show.
Pros
  • Very close to shops and trains. Ferries available.
  • Very close to Olympic Park and the best events in Sydney.
  • Next to the best cycle routes in the country.
Cons
  • Can be noisy with busy roads and rail.

"Too Noisy, too much traffic"

This place is too noisy, with heavy traffic on Homebush Bay Drive.
Anyone could enter the estate. Workers who work at Rhodes tend to park their car in the area and walk to Rhodes.
The only thing that is good about this place is that it is quite clean, and it is close to Rhodes shopping mall.

"A wonderful place to live"

Wentworth Drive is the main street running through the small suburb / community of Liberty Grove.

Liberty Grove is a mix of residential units (all 2 or 3 bedrooms), small town houses and larger homes.

The complex is beautifully maintained and cared for by a full time maintenance staff. The complex features several pools, spas, gyms and saunas, tennis courts and basketball courts. All these facilities are available for residents and make for a fantastic lifestyle.

The complex has a 24 hour on site security guard.

My only complaint would be about the parking situation within the complex. Many units and town houses have two car parking spaces, though the 2 bedroom units nearly all have one car space only. If you happen to have two cars, this can be a problem as visitor parking is limited and the security will harass any resident parking in the visitor spaces.

However, Liberty Grove is a modern, clean and safe place to live. It has a wonderful community atmosphere and I would recommend it to anyone thinking about buying in the area.

Units in Liberty Grove are at least $100K cheaper than the equivalent being completed now in the adjacent Rhodes Waterside development. Liberty Grove is not brand new, but paying an additional $100K for the 'new' factor is a big ask in my opinion. So if looking at Rhodes Waterside, pop over to Liberty Grove and see what your money can buy you before making a decision to purchase. You will be very pleasantly surprised.
