The sprawling homes of Kellyville are filled with gaggles of giggling children. Leafy streets, backyard pools and plenty of schools make Kellyville a fantastic base for families. Renowned for huge family homes, the only thing that’s changed in Kellyville mansions over the years is the diminishing size of the land they’re on.
Named not for the helmeted bushranger, but an Irish clan who lived in the area in the 1800s, Kellyville used to be home to market gardens. Now you’re more likely to find housing estates than rows of veggies, but as Kellyville inches further and further towards development, it remains a gateway to more rural settings.
These days Kellyville locals are more likely to be professionals than farmers; more likely to work in offices and classrooms than orchards and paddocks.
Just 35 minutes from Sydney city by car (and a little over an hour by bus) Kellyville is the ultimate almost-country getaway. Kellyville Plaza is the major shopping centre, with a Coles supermarket and plenty of shops. If Woolworths is your supermarket of choice there’s one next door. On Windsor Road you’ll find ‘The Village’, a collection of local shops and the huge Kellyville Pets store. Rouse Hill is the nearest organic food and farmers market and is held every Saturday in Rouse Hill Town Centre, about 10 minutes’ drive from Kelllyville.
For sports lovers, the Bernie Mullane Sporting Complex offers a health club, creche and kiosk together with courts and facilities for basketball, netball, gymnastics, martial arts, badminton, indoor soccer, volleyball and more. On non-sports days, there are plenty of parks for tiring out little ones.
Although you can still find semi-rural areas of Kellyville, many homes are part of estates. There are five major housing estates: the leafy and prestigious Duncraig Estate, the upmarket Highlands Estate, the highly accessible Elizabeth Macarthur Estate, and Old Homeworld Display Village and New Homeworld Display Village, where retired display homes are sold as residences.
If you’re after a huge home for your family, you need look no further than Kellyville. When the Lane Cove tunnel and M2 are flowing, you can drive from Kellyville to the city in about 35 minutes, and oh, what a place to come home to. Beautiful parks, plenty of facilities and of course, gorgeous homes, make this a fantastic place to put down roots.
