The area is affluent and there are many large houses, although the last seven years has seen an increase in population and sub-divisions.  There is a mixture of old homes on large blocks and brand new villas. It is 8km to the CBD and 3km to the trendy shopping precinct of Norwood.

Most sought after properties: Three and four-bedroom homes are the most sought after for families. Older people who are down-sizing are also looking to buy small, low maintenance homes.

Most common properties: A mixture of older homes on large blocks, brand new two-storey homes and some units. The trend now is to subdivide the blocks and build low maintenance courtyard villas.

Top amenities: High quality public schools and private schools, plus the University of SA campus all create demand. Add to this the great shopping centres within a 3km radius, plenty of parks and playgrounds. Magill Road is full of cafes, boutiques and restaurants and plenty of bakers, butchers and greengrocers.
