"New golf course & modern family homes setting the pace for growth in the Menai District"

Much of the residential development in Barden Ridge is very recent. While most homes are freestanding, some duplexes and townhouses have also been constructed. There is a real emphasis on quality. Many homes particularly those that have panoramic views have been architect designed. Much of Barden Ridge is yet to be developed with a land subdivision of 39 lots just recently sold. A great opportunity for you to build your dream home.

Surrounded by bush, residents of Barden Ridge nevertheless have plenty of options when it comes to dining locally. Neighbouring Menai and Bangor offer some great restaurants and takeaway food.

As for the sporty type Barden Ridge is home to The Ridge Sports Complex located on the western side of New Illawarra Road. It offers netball courts, a synthetic athletics track and a flood lit golf driving range adjoining a 9 hole golf course, on completion early next year the course will be an 18 hole championship course.

A number of long day childcare and preschool services operate locally, including The Ridge Preschool and Lucas Heights Kids Cottage. Two schools serve Barden Ridge’s children; Lucas Heights Community School and the Sutherland Shire Christian School. Both provide curricula for children from kindergarten to year 12.

"Wouldn't Live Anywhere Else"

Having been a Barden Ridge resident for 20 years I wouldn't live anywhere else. With 2 great schools a new golf course and some of the best sporting facilities in sydney.

Located only 35 minutes drive from the city and only a couple of minutes to Menai Marketplace.

This is a great area to raise a family
