A quiet suburban neighbourhood that has all the perks of city convenience, Penshurst in Sydney’s St George region, often flies under the radar. For those in the know, Penshurst offers a lifestyle that draws on some of the area’s best features – a major shopping and entertainment precinct, Georges River and eateries that reflect the regions multicultural community.
The streets surrounding Penshurst Train Station are home to a cluster of small shopfronts that make it their business to service the everyday needs of locals. It has a village-like feel with a sprinkling of cafes that keep commuters well-caffeinated as they head to neighbouring Hurstville and Kogarah for work, or Sydney CBD, which can be reached within 30 minutes by train. And around the corner is the much-loved facilities of Hurstville Aquatic Leisure Centre.
Next door is Hurstville, the local shopping and entertainment precinct, with Westfields sprawling complex at the centre of it all. Also, a major transport hub, Hurstville has express trains to the city and a bus interchange that keeps locals connected. The boating culture of Georges River is moments away, while Kogarah’s medical precinct – St George Hospital and St George Private Hospital – and the beaches of Botany Bay are within easy reach.
Two of Penshurst biggest drawcards is the established public and private schools, which are in abundance, and the tree-lined streets with double brick homes and fenced-in yards. All of which is in hot demand for growing families who want to lay down roots in a quiet, yet convenient, part of Sydney’s south. Apartments also have a place here, but they do little to detract from the homes that keep locals grounded.
From the commercial hub to the calm undertones of suburbia, Penshurst is quiet and low-key, just the way locals like it.
