A leafy suburb at the foothills of Adelaide, Magill is known for its high quality schools, access to a university campus, affluence and many large houses.
The last decade has seen a near doubling of the population, as the increased quality of schooling, public transport and proximity to the CBD saw Magill emerge as a truly desirable suburb.
Homes of three and four bedrooms remain the most sought after for many of the suburb's young families, while down sizers and first home buyers keep the unit market ticking along nicely.
Magill is centrally located, to provide reasonably fast access to beaches, the city, wine country and national parks.
The nearby trendy shopping centre of Norwood is another big plus for this inner ring locality.Full summary
