"A beautiful and serene place to live"

Piccadilly is one of those suburbs in Adelaide where people ask you "where do you live?" and when you answer them, they do not know where you are talking about... This is not a bad thing. It is an amazing gem found just a stone throw away from premier Adelaide Hills suburbs such as Crafers and Stirling with beautiful surroundings all throughout the suburb. There is not a bad part of Piccadilly and the community there is amazing with even its own CFS station. You have the expressway that is easily accessed which offers you a short drive into town despite being a fair distance away from the city and access to other amazing Adelaide gems such as Hahndorf and Aldgate.

Piccadilly is easily one of my favourite suburbs I have lived in and it has been a stretch not to give it a five-star rating, but it does fall merely short of a couple of important factors. The time I was there (and I seriously doubt it has gotten better) we had buses that only ran during the week and four times a day. The internet we had was very slow due to no infrastructure and the only option being a very expensive wireless connection. We had to buy our gas in cylinders and we also had a septic tank in our (albeit very large) backyard which are good questions to ask if considering buying or renting in Piccadilly.

Great Points:
• Peace and quiet with beautiful surroundings
• Beautiful houses
• Amazing land opportunities
• Great community with its very own CFS station
• Very safe

Good Points:
• A stone throw away from premier Adelaide Hills suburbs that offer entertainment, restaurants and pubs
• Easy access into Adelaide city and not a long commute despite how far away it is

Bad Points:
• Public transport is almost non-existant
• Internet and gas infrastructure (where I lived) was almost non-existant
• Street lighting in some areas is not very well lit
