"The greatest little pocket of Adelaide"

What a great area of Adelaide to live! Mitcham shopping centre just goes from strength to strength with more retail variety being offered and great supermarkets within easy reach!

Easy to travel to the CBD by car (15 minutes in 'peak' hour!), bus, train, bike or foot.

Being near the base of the south eastern freeway/belair also means weekend drives and hikes around the country side are easily done with little hassle on the way there or the way back!

Secure suburbia feel surrounded by beautiful homes and great neighbours, fabulous access to amenities and close to the city, what more could you want!

"A great spot for families and Flinders Uni students"

Situated at the southern end of Unley Road, Torrens Park is a leafy suburb nestled in to the foothills. The drive along Unley Road can take some time, even though the distance is short, due to the hectic traffic and narrow lanes. This can be very frustrating in peak hour!

The area is well-serviced by public transport, with both frequent buses and a train line straight to the city.

Torrens Park has some lovely family homes with large gardens. It also offers some good rental properties, excellent for students attending Flinders University which is a short drive away.

The suburb of Mitcham is just next door, which offers a fantastic selection of shops and facilities, including a gym, cinema complex and schools.
