Choosing the right place to live is never easy. Sometimes you might be drawn to an area for the sentimental value from when you were a child, other times it might be due to being close to the beach, or it could be a decision that is purely influenced by price. Everyone’s situations are different, but whatever the case, buying a property is an exciting time of your life.
For the people of Magill, they have the luxury of being situated in one of the loveliest areas of Adelaide; an eastern pocket where the air is clear and trees are aplenty. It is no surprise that Magill is a popular location for renters and buyers in their search for a place to call home.
However, due to many properties in here being surrounded by trees, bark and moisture, purchasing a home in Magill should mean having a building and pest inspection before signing.
If you have a home with lots of trees, it means that the fallen bark brings termites closer to the home. Similarly, if you leave stacks of firewood nearby it could do the same. Detail Building Inspections are licensed in pest control and are experienced in identifying the presence of termites or conditions that might bring them along. The termite damage is often in the thousands, which stresses the importance of recognizing the issue now instead of in the future.
The area in itself is a wonderful and diverse. The homes here consist of Victorian villas, California bungalows, as well as more modern townhouses. Being an established suburb that is hot on the buyers market, there is an eclectic mix of old and new, small and large. Magill has something for everyone.
Perfect for Students
The University of South Australia, Magill Campus is one of the largest tertiary institutions in the state. It is home to students of teaching, psychology, communications and much more. As a result, the suburb of Magill is highly sought after by students looking for rental properties nearby. This is fantastic from a buyer’s perspective, as it illustrates security in the market—especially if purchasing a rental property.
You can find some of Adelaide’s finest eateries on this side of town. Along both Magill Road and The Parade, there is bound to be something that takes your fancy. If you are looking for an elegant dining experience and incredible wine, look no further than the award-winning Penfolds Magill Estate Cellar Door. It is certainly a restaurant for special occasions, so why not celebrate the purchase of your new home?
A Perfect Distance
The area is removed enough from the city centre for suburban life to work its magic, but close enough to still be considered convenient. A drive to town will take just twenty minutes down Kensington Road, allowing easy access for work or leisure.
