"People aren't what they seem"

I grew up facing the Murray Park Reserve (Park Tce) and spent the majority of my life there. Everything seemed blissful growing up, but once my parents passed on, a few of the long term 'friendly' neighbours showed how immoral and two faced they were. These wonderful church goers who my family knew for 30 odd years were inside my place stealing valuable items (using an emergency key I entrusted them with), including my father's will (so the place next to them wouldn't be sub-divided), favouring being a party to fraudulent activities my brother was planning. These particular people were snobs that looked down on others - thought of themselves as highly moral. In reality they were underhanded, interfering, two faced low lives. And I realised after I left the area that I never really knew them. And I think you can say that for a lot of people I knew in Magill over the years - they hide their true colours. If you are new to the area, take this as a warning. You may never be good enough for your neighbours there. Expect them to be talking behind your back about you. Don't get too friendly with them. Better still, find another suburb where the people are nice, and genuine.

"Magill gate way to the Eastern Hills"

What a great suburb tree lined streets and so close to the Adelaide foothills and also the CBD.
Known for the famous Penfold Winery which has the world renown Magill Estate fine dining and also home to Grange Hermitage it really is a suprise packet.
Houses sell well for a good price with relatively short days on market.

"the secret is out"

With the Adelaide hills as a back drop and 8 km from the city centre, Magill house prices has increased. Add also two of the states best public school (Norwood/morialta high and Magill primary) and the demand for family homes is high. There are a large number of parks,ovals and play grounds to choose from as well as Shopping/ Transport close by. Magill university is also highly sort after as well. With Suburbs Such as Kensington Gardens, Tranmere, Auldana, Woodforde all adjoining Magill you can see why this is a great suburb to invest into. A truly safe and friendly suburb with a mixed cultural feel. "I grew up in Magill and now own my own home in Magill. I am also sending my two children to the local schools..i work in real estate industry and homes in Magill do not stay on the market long.

"A reasonable area with a good mix of houses"

Magill is a popular suburb and with good reason. It’s an easy trip into the city down Magill road and is well serviced by public transport. There is a University campus, good schools\and plenty of shops.
It’s a well established area with a number of very nice streets that are lined by gums. However, with the good comes the bad. There are some really ugly streets in Magill as well with some unattractive houses and poorly maintained yards. Its an area to choose your street wisely.
There are a few good places to eat around the place and there is a winery close by. There are also a few good pubs around the place.
An area more for families than young couples it is a great place to raise a family.

"A great spot for comfortable living close to the city"

Located just a 10-20 minute drive from Adelaide, this large suburb is nestled in the foothills to the east of Adelaide.

With many comfortably family homes, modern townhouses and duplex style cottages, Magill offers a range of living styles to suit families, retirees, professional couples and uni students. Purchasing in this can be quite high, but there are still some bargains and renovator’s delights to be found. It is also a good spot in Adelaide for finding reasonably priced rental properties.

This is an excellent spot for uni students, with the Magill campus of Uni SA situated nearby.

Magill has a number of shops and restaurants. There is a large Italian population in this region, so you will find a number of stores selling fresh pasta and good coffee. The Avenues complex is handy for those in the western end of Magill, and there is a Foodland on Magill Road for those on the eastern end.

Located just next door to Norwood, you will be a reasonable walking distance or short drive (depending on what part of Magill!) from the Norwood Parade and its cafés, shops, supermarkets and cinema complex. There is also the Maid and Magpie at the start of Magill Road – a great pub that has undergone an excellent renovation and serves really good pub meals.

With frequent bus lines along both Magill and Payneham Roads, accessing the city is quick and easy.
