Marsfield is a suburb in the Northern Districts of Sydney, located 19 kilometres North-West of the Sydney CBD.
The South Western pocket of Marsfield around Agincourt Road is perfect for families given that it is surrounded by primary schools, sporting amenities, and parks. The North Eastern pocket of Marsfield around Trafalgar Place is popular with investors and young couples given the low maintenance style of properties, and the nearby Macquarie University and Shopping Centre.
Marsfield has access to the M2 Hills Motorway/Lane Cove Tunnel with on and off ramps to the West and to the City, just around the corner near Macquarie Shopping Centre. Epping Road, Pittwater Road and nearby Victoria Road also connect you to the Sydney CBD.
It is also serviced by many Sydney buses including popular routes such as 290 (Epping-Artarmon-City), 288 & 292 (Epping-Lane Cove-City), plus the rapid M40 (Marsfield-Hurstville) bus route.
Alternatively, an active person may like to walk to either Epping or Macquarie University train stations for their commute to work.

In nearby Macquarie Park, Macquarie University is one of Australia’s largest universities. It features a 126 hectare park-like campus beside a high-technology corridor. The University is affiliated with a number of colleges also located in the suburb including Dunmore Lang College, Robert Menzies College an Anglican College, Macquarie Christian Studies Institute and Sydney Institute of Business & Technology.

General Real Estate and Design
The majority of dwellings in Marsfield are made up of post war houses or brand new houses, and then a mixture of medium density units, townhouses or villas. Construction of these units commenced in the early 1970’s.
In the 2010’s, there has been a change in property design with the City of Ryde’s change to the Local Environment Plan to include the construction of dual occupancy dwellings such as a duplex which are becoming very popular amongst new home owners.
Certainly Macquarie Shopping Centre is the obvious choice as it continues to expand and grow in popularity, now including international fashion outlets such as Zara and H&M plus a well equipped entertainment and restaurant precinct.
There are some really nice boutique local shops throughout Marsfield. The shopping centre at Trafalgar Place includes Zig Zag Cafe, Mediterranean Pizza, Basil’s seafood and a squash fitness centre named MAASH.
Additionally, there are local shops also on Agincourt Road and Corunna Road.
Icon of Marsfield
Perhaps the most notable property in Marsfield remains the beautiful, historic Curzon Hall. Located at the corner of Balaclava Road and Agincourt Road, this venue is now a very successful wedding and function centre now known across all of Sydney.
