Located just 7km from Adelaide CBD, Enfield is a popular suburb due to its proximity to the CBD and its lifestyle aspectsFull summary Located just 7km from Adelaide CBD, Enfield is a popular suburb due to its proximity to the CBD and its lifestyle aspects, according to Mick Heasman, director of Northgate Real Estate.

“It’s got great amenities, such as a good local shopping strip and major centres,” he says.

Heasman says the dominant renters are often young families that have grown up in the area and want to remain here, as well as 20- to 40-year-old couples.

Rents for houses hover around $350–$450 per week.

Units fetch around $270 per week, according to Heasman.

Indeed, rental yield is strong, even with increasing house prices, and vacancy rate is tight at 1.5%.

Enfield is currently going through massive gentrification with 80s houses slowly being converted into modern houses.

There are a number of beautiful parks and recreational facilities in the area.

There are two primary schools – St. Gabriel’s Primary School and Enfield Primary School, both located in Enfield.

Residents can get to Adelaide by bus or car in approximately 30 minutes.

Moreover, the council provides local buses for the aged.

The best buys, according to Heasman, are older homes on larger allotments that are still suitable for redevelopments. 

"This has been the case for the past five to 10 years,” he says.

The best streets are those closer to the city or Regency Road, where the value and demand are strong.”Close
