5 Reasons to Escape the Hustle, Bustle & Cost of Sydney and Move to Penrith


Sydney is a city like no other. It boasts stunning views, incredible buildings, and a culture that is unlike any other. With all of this and more on offer, it’s no wonder that the city’s population is growing exponentially. While Sydney hasn’t lost any of its charm, it has definitely shot through the roof when it comes to prices for homes.

Houses that aren’t even on the border of the city centre can still easily fetch million dollar figures. As these trends are predicted to continue, it might be time that you escaped the hustle, bustle and cost of the city and find a new way of life in Penrith.

Consider these five reasons to escape and visit our Jordan Springs Lendlease Community in Penrith (Western Sydney), or follow this link here to learn more about our house and land packages and latest offers.
