"Hidden Gem"

Hackham is an area I grew up in. I found it sad when growing up hearing the jokes and bad reports about the area. I have never had an issue with this area and really enjoyed the 8 years I spent living there. My parents are still locals to the area and would not live any where else.
Traffic is minimal in the area and most of the streets are quiet and peaceful.
You have access to two small shopping centres in the area, a retirement village, take out joints, doctors, childcare facilities, nature walks, tennis courts, parks and so much more.
No matter what you have heard, if you want to live in Hackham, I say, give it a try. You will not be disappointed, you will easily fall in love with the area and the peace it brings.
Pros
  • Social clubs
  • Football Club
  • childcare facilities
  • The old train line makes a great walking track!

"Happy Hackham"

Hackham is a great place to live, with prices starting from around $200,000 for a unit through to $500,000 for a larger home on a big block. Only moments to the updated Colonnades Shopping Centre, a great selection of high quality schools, kindergarten and child care facilities, the Southern Exrpessway makes a quick trip to McLaren Vale with 43 minute trip into the city centre, and of course a short 13 minute trip to our fabulous southern beaches. The median house price as at August 2011 sits at $255,000 with 75% of homes being owner occupied.
Pros
  • The old train line makes a great walking track!

oigevay In 2010 Neighbourhood Policing Teams were implemented at Hackham West, Huntfield Heights, Seaford and Seaford Rise in the south. Research the crime stats bofore moving into that area - its dodgy..

kymmie13 Hackham West, Huntfield Heights, Seaford and Seaford Rise are all on the other side of the main road.
I purchased in Hackham initially for an investment, but ended up living there for 4 years. As I'd moved from interstate, I had heard how bad Hackham was and was wanted to have the monitored alarms and everything.... but it's been fantastic. Haven't had a single issue and now that I've moved away, I'm actually missing it!

2clarks I noticed "oigevay" that you didnt actaully mention "Hackham" I had lived on and of in this area for 25 yrs, when i was ready to buy a home for my family this was the area i went looking in. I agree "kymmie13" they are on the other side of south road, and that does make a differnce.
