‘‘The place is really getting revamped,’’ Ms Kay says. ‘‘There’s probably more new homes in the street now than older homes.’’
Located in the centre of the suburb, Douglas St is within walking distance of two kindergartens and two primary schools which, in addition to the quiet surrounds, make it ideal for families.
Ms Kay says the suburb is dotted with small parks. Linear Park along the Torrens – just two minutes’ walk from Douglas St – is popular for joggers and dog owners. The suburb has good public transport, with buses running on Henley Beach Rd to the city, Glenelg and West Lakes.
