The grand and stately inner west suburb of Strathfield is rich in history and prestige, with a showcase of fine mansions still presiding from Sydney’s early heritage.
Concentrated around a busy train station and commercial centre the area offers excellent public transport, an impressive selection of schools and eclectic choice of real estate.
Shopping is more than adequate in Strathfield. There is the main shopping hub, Strathfield Plaza with everything you need for day-to-day necessities, a variety of shops surrounding the train station, and a good selection of Asian restaurants to tempt you away dinner on the sofa.
On the other hand, if you’re searching for something special or a major retail brand, then nearby Burwood or Bankstown shopping centres are where you should head.
A selection of fine historical mansions in Strathfield have been respectfully restored to house some of the district’s best schools in Sydney including the private St Patrick’s College, Santa Sabina College, Meridan Anglican School for Girls, Trinity Grammar and St Martha’s. The area is also home to MacDonald College, Sydney’s reputable performing arts high school.
A wonderful choice of parks with pretty paths and gardens make it easy to relax, a choice of local gyms and sports centres a breeze to stay fit, and a plethora of buses and trains, to make travelling to the city as quick as a flash.
All this just 14km from the CBD, it’s no surprise Strathfield is still a popular spot, retaining it’s graceful dignity and the challenging test of time.
Life is comfortable, but never boring in Strathfield. After sundown, a pilgrimage of professionals and students spill out of Strathfield station to make their way home.
There is a healthy multicultural community here, and you can find people from China, India, Korea and Sri Lanka as well as all European backgrounds.
Mature and affluent families who fall in love with the grand old homes, choose to reside in this area, as well as young families and professionals looking for an easy commute to the city.
Housing can be a surprising contradiction in Strathfield. Beautiful multi-million dollar residences in quiet leafy streets are only minutes away from towering apartment blocks that overlook one of Sydney’s busiest train stations.
There are also Californian bungalows both modest and renovated, lovingly restored federation homes, and of course, more apartment complexes.
Many of the magnificent homes remaining from the 1900s are now transformed into apartments or house private schools.
