"The good side and the bad side of Seaton!"

Seaton is like my second home!

Having a family member live in the area, i know vividly what happens in Seaton.

Seaton is a beautiful suburb, if your on the right half of it! if you are on the Grange side of Seaton the congratulations you have a beautiful home and a really friendly neighbourhood ! If your on the Royal Park side, you might be running into trouble with all of the hosing trust homes!

Lets focus on the better half!

Seaton is a glowing suburb and is local to pretty much everything! 25 Minutes from town, minutes away from grange beach and westlakes is right around the corner. If your looking for a great neighborhood with a good spirit then Seaton is for you.

With a prestige golf course at walking distance Seaton can appeal to a whole variety of demographics!
Pros
  • friendly
  • local
  • Seaton High school
  • affordable
  • close to the beach
Cons
  • Housing trust

"Large Suburb, bit of an all sorts"

Having lived in Seaton I enjoyed being close to the beach and not too far from the city. There are some better pockets of Seaton than others. I agree with some other posts that the southern side of Seaton is better than the northern side. There are also some pockets that have been redeveloped too. Very close to West Lakes shopping center and there are some decent liitle block of shops in the suburb.

"A simple suburban suburb with easy access to everything."

I lived there for about 15 years since I was born and I couldn't fault it. After visiting other areas of the western suburbs I have found that Seaton is actually a brilliant location close to the beach, West Lakes Mall and not far from the city. I have decided that I will be living there when I move from home within the next year. The value of houses is a little more expensive than other areas but you can still find some good buys there.

Hubertha I have lived almost 6 years and still am living in the northern part of Seaton and love it, easy excess to everything, friendly neighbors without being too intrusive. The neighborhood is changing rapidly into a very friendly family orientated one. Older people are making way for families. New homes are being build everywhere. A lot of the housing trust houses are making way for new homes, streets are quiet and there are still houses on nice blocks to be found. I have lived in several other areas in Adelaide (Tennison, West Lakes - Delphin Island and Largs Bay) and have had noisy neighbors in all of these areas, the youth (mainly richer kids) with their parties and car noise during late evening, early morning made living there not very pleasant. None of this in North Seaton. Public transport is excellent and schools are good. West Lakes mall, the beach and the lakes are only minutes away. Hopping into town is easy and quick, either by public transport or by car. You are only 10 minutes away from the airport, Ikea and Harbour Town and Semaphore. North Seaton Offers a wonderful affordable livestyle and I can recommend it to everyone!

"Some areas are great!"

Some areas in Seaton are beautiful...on the limits with Grange and Fulham garden are very nice areas with houses at great prices. It is neccesary to know where to look for. The southern end is all privatly owned, has a golf course, close to the beach, close to Wesk Lakes Mall, etc.
We lived in this area for more than 5 years, we walked to the beach nearly everyday during summer. Just beautiful! Only 10 minutes walk to Henley Square or Grange cafes! Kids love it.
Furthermore, there is excellent access to busses and the train.

"A mixed suburb"

Seaton is a strange one. The southern end is all privatly owned, has a golf course etc. The northern end is largely housing trust, has streets which turn into carparks all football season, and has regular visits by police.
We lived there (northern end) for almost 5 years in a privat house. We had good friendly neighbours, but just 6 houses down the trouble areas started. We used to go for evening walks but stopped that a couple of years ago as we began feeling unsafe. We moved as we dont want to raise a family in that environment.
There is excellent access to busses and the train. Easy access to Port Rd and Taplies Hill Rd. If you like fotie, you can walk to AAMI stadium. Good shops at Wetlakes (but watch for carpark safety after dark).
Like I said, it's a strange area. A mix of good and bad.
