Glenbrook, NSW offers excellent real estate at prices substantially less than you would pay in Sydney.
On top of this, living in Glenbrook means that you are living in a peaceful environment surrounded by the Blue Mountains National Park, while being just an hour's commute away from your job in the Sydney CBD or having a commute of just 15 minutes if you are working in Penrith.
House prices start from just $A400,000 and range right up to $A2.5 million at the very top of the market.
For $A400,000, you can buy an older house that is closer the main road (Great Western Highway) and that would need a bit of work done on the kitchen and bathroom.
For a little more, you will obtain a bigger house (1, 2 or 3 bedrooms) in the older range, which would be made of brick, weatherboard or fibro.
Flat (Apartment) Prices
There are not a lot of flats in Glenbrook; but I saw 1 and 2 bedroom flats in Ross Street, Glenbrook, that were selling for $A350,000.
Rents in Springwood, typically of a house (1, 2 or 3 bedrooms) will cost you $A400 - $A500 per week.
Why Live in Glenbrook?
Glenbrook's real estate is cheaper than Sydney's but it is somewhat more expensive than real estate further up the Blue Mountains (for example, Blaxland is a bit cheaper).
The higher price that Glenbrook commands is based on three factors:
-- Glenbrook has a real village atmosphere. Residents think of it as a little Leura.
-- Wherever you live in Glenbrook, you are close to the railway station
-- A home in Glenbrook means you spend less time commuting to your city job, as Glenbrook is just one hour by train or car from the Sydney CBD.
