A backyard of a million hectares of eucalyptus forest, steep cliffs, hidden valleys and waterfalls is chucked in with a piece of Blue Mountains real estate. It kind of makes up for being close to Blacktown and Parramatta, two suburbs that have expanded exponentially over the last 30 years and part of the City of Parramatta. This 84sq kilometre area includes Winston Hills, Toongabbie, Carlingford, Dundas Valley and Rosehill, and boasts a population close to 250,000. Rich in ethnic diversity and covering the breadth of household incomes, occupations and employment status, it is considered the true commercial centre of Sydney and has had many Parramatta bathroom renovations completed to the utmost satisfaction of a myriad of clientele with budgets from $6,000 to $15,000 and beyond; and requirements spanning impressive ensuites to stylish changing areas for the inground pool.
The Parramatta area encompasses 28 suburbs, from Beecroft to Carlingford, Epping to Dundas, Telopia to Sydney Olympic Park, Winston Hills to Granville – that was sadly first put on the map on Tuesday, 18th January 1977 with what became known as the Granville Train disaster. The Blue Mountains is from Glenbrook to Mount Victoria. It includes Blaxland, Springwood, Faulconbridge, Linden, Lawson, and Wentworth Falls, as well as other towns. Each has its own charm, and it is the borough for bushwalkers. Blue Gum Forest has the tallest stand of blue gums in the world and the Blue Mountains National Park is World Heritage listed.
Public and private gardens open at various times of year in this creative community of horticulturalists, writers, and artists. You’ll find lots of galleries, antique shops, cafes, and traditional Devonshire tea. Licensed builders create Parramatta bathroom renovations and guarantee a professional, impressive result as individual as you.
Parramatta and Katoomba are the retail hubs. The chill of the mountains and the drive for healthy lifestyle are both taken into account with Katoomba’s aquatic centre having not only outdoor pools, but a heated indoor one as well. Leura’s shopping street is like a 1930’s film set. Mount Victoria has historic buildings. Add Blackheath to this trio, and pick your town for fine dining, no more than 90 minutes from Parramatta. No need to travel that far though – Parramatta is a discovery of theatre, arts, restaurants, pubs, clubs, and sports grounds. C’arn The Eels!
The entire area has hospitals, libraries, numerous golf, bowling, and rotary clubs, art and concert societies, offering a satisfactory balance to the commercial real estate and increasing property development that seems Parramatta’s current focus. Well serviced by the train network and private bus services, there is convenience for every chosen lifestyle.
Every town in the mountain area has regular local buses and coaches, and the train services most towns. Many residents commute the 5-hour round trip to Sydney every weekday. They say it’s well worth it for the mountain air and log fires.
This is still a relatively affordable area. Weatherboard, brick veneer, double brick federation, leadlight windows and pot-bellied stoves and huge fireplaces are all here.
Average house price for Katoomba is around $620,00; expect to pay more in Leura and Mt Wilson. Still, a far cry from Parramatta’s $1.2m – although less costly apartments abound. Know, however, that Parramatta bathroom renovations will arrive on time, create your dream bathroom, and remove all the necessary debris wherever you are.
The pros of the mountains include its growing population, and the many villages to choose from. Views to Sydney, or overlooking a valley are options. There are acreages available. Cons? A slow price increases, variation in property standards, and the possibility of bushfire in some areas. Parramatta is modern convenience with all it’s expected access to work, restaurants and events; with unavoidable high density living.
Parramatta is Sydney’s second oldest settlement, and it’s settling into the 21st century very nicely. The Mountains might be blue, but the locals are a lovely shade of happy, with warm hues, and friendly tones.

“Our bathroom renovation exceeded our wildest expectations. Izzy and his team were punctual, polite, respectful, and very professional. And cleaned up after themselves – they even gave us a wonderful gift of bath towels which was unexpected.” – Rachel Golding, Vaucluse.
