With the COVID-19 Pandemic transforming the landscape of urban living forever, Ernst & Young boldly predicts that central business districts may no longer be the same as we move into the future. Even in Sydney, we see more people moving out of the CBD and into suburban areas where rent is lower and the floor space is wider and less congested. This has driven an increase in properties for sale in Winston Hills, Lalor Park, King’s Langley, Blacktown, and other suburbs.
This shift in the real estate world means more housing options versus condo living spaces as people will be more conscious of social distancing and working from home. Due to remote work set-ups, mobility has decreased and the desire for bigger home spaces that can accommodate workspaces has increased. Ask your real estate agent and they will tell you that this is the new normal and a place like Winston Hills is perfect for families, couples, and even busy individuals.
Ideal for suburban shoppers
Just 28 kilometers from Sydney’s CBD, Winston Hills is a fairly quiet town with everything that you need, especially if you are an avid shopper. Talk to your real estate agent in Winston Hills and he (or she) will point you to the 24,000 square-meter Winston Hills Mall, home to the Big 4 Aussie megabrands: Big W, Coles, Woolworths, and Aldi. There are over 60 specialty shops as well that sells clothes, sporting goods, deli, furniture, and more. For those looking for a little extra, there is The Winston which offers a fine dining experience to its customers and is just right beside the mall.
References to history
If you buy a property for sale in Winston Hills, you’re not just getting a piece of land but also a piece of interesting history and historical references. First of all, the area is named after Sir Winston Churchill, UK’s celebrated Prime Minister during the Second World War. Secondly, Winston Hills (formerly named Model Farms) used to be literally a model farm because this land was used to demonstrate to its early settlers what crops can grow for different seasons. Finally, some of the street names have a familiar ring to them as they are references to famous English writers, Greek mythology, Bible names, and famous scientists.
A place of residential comfort
Now some people think that moving to a suburb means it takes more effort to get around the city. If your agent offers you property for sale in Winston Hills, you are actually taking a prime spot because the Northern side is right next to the M2 Motorway. Commuting is also easy via bus and the nearest train station is in Toongabie. Best of all, it’s so near Parramatta, a main suburban watering hole for Sydneysiders, you’ll surely forget living in the CBD right away.
