"Hidden gem"

Moved in couple of years ago and cant get over the value for money housing . A few minutes walk to the OBahn interchange which is currently a short trip into the CBD via a green reserve known as Linear Park & once the city access project is completed by the end of 2017, journey time will be 10 mins to the centre of the CBD with buses minutes apart on weekdays, brilliant transport system. With Adelaide CBD offering so much to do, be it shopping, eating, drinking, sport, arts, theatres, botanic gardens, multiple universities and more, being 10 minutes away but in suburbia is great. Locally in the suburb there are large parkland areas, community centre, library, Olympic swimming pool, sporting clubs & shopping options, all of this within walking / cycling distance. The older part of the suburb is just starting to go through redevelopment and there are also newer areas subdivided about 15-20 years ago that have good quality housing available on the city side of the suburb. Being 5+ Km's by road from CBD, a 5 minute drive to Norwood and a 10 minute drive to Burnside, makes it a hidden location with convenience, especially when nearby blue chip suburbs cost so much more. If you have kids, dogs, are retired or are professionals who work in the CBD or like cycling in Linear Park, it is hard to go wrong. I am surprised there is not more demand in this location and am happy that we moved here, after returning from working interstate.

"Great place to live"

So close to the city and the parade without the cost. Transport with the O-Bahn close by makes it very easy to get to the city in under 5 minutes.
