Where is Sydney’s worst suburb for McMansions?


We’ve all seen certain localities of Sydney which are appearing with miles of mansions that are way too mammoth for any regularly sized family. Your average McMansion floor plans are more like a manor than a house.

Authorities argue their effectiveness in assisting intelligent growth of neighbourhoods. It’s better to have a modest home, they claim – particularly in the housing market we’re confronted with. But there’s lots of areas out there filled with these types of homes.

Maybe they’re on their way out of style – a cursory browse at sites like Realestate.com.au lists many McMansions for sale right now.

So where’s the worst location in Sydney filled with Mc Mansions and why?


  1. That large belt stretching from Schofields to Cherrybrook — an endless shower of cookie-cutter bogan-storage domiciles, strip malls, 4WDs and god-botherers. Way to go, Sydney!

  2. The new release estates aren’t that bad, IMO. There actually is a community feeling for the residents who live there. On the other hand, I don’t understand the idea of having a huge mansion which takes up the entire block. Far better to have a back yard. So the housing developments are ok, in my book, but the houses themselves need to be smaller with more yard space.

  3. the new release estates in the Hills district.

    I…just….can’t…do…it. It irks me. Yes modern living, but it some homes are excessive, seriously excessive. It leaves me flat wondering how some people can afford it. If I had that much cash I personally wouldn’t be living in some of these areas. Bloody dessert, no trees, eaves next to each other and a sense of ‘I’ve made it’. *vomit*
