"A suburb being gentrified"

Merrylands West is so much better than its big brother Merrylands. The suburb was established only 50 years ago, so a new wave of professional and aspirational families are moving in to replace the aging population of the original inhabitants. These people want modern houses and in every street you can see old houses being replaced with new. This way the entire suburb is gradually being upgraded as well as gentrified from working class into professional class.
Pros
  • Proximity to major regional hub of Parramatta
  • High proportion of Parks and Playing fields
  • Great loation to raise a family
