Rd you can’t ac­tu­ally hear any traf­fic, which is great,’’ she says. ‘‘There is close prox­im­ity to Lin­den Park Pri­mary School and there is a bus stop nearby.’’

She also says it is a safe area that is good for some­one who is ac­tive.

‘‘There are also great walks around there, be­ing from the coun­try that was at­trac­tive for us, we could duck up the back of Glen Os­mond and Beau­mont and it felt like we were in the coun­try,’’ Ms New­bold says.

In­for­ma­tion from RP Data and the Aus­tralian Bureau of Sta­tis­tics shows that St Ge­orges has a pop­u­la­tion of 1,423.

The me­dian sale price for houses in De­cem­ber was $750,000, which is just be­low the $750,500 for the Burn­side coun­cil area.

The me­dian price for units was $625,000, which is more than the $378,500 for the coun­cil area.

Neale Realty man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Ros­alind Neale, who is sell­ing Ms New­bold’s prop­erty, says St Ge­orges is a tightly-held area be­cause of its prox­im­ity to schools.

‘‘It is the sheer con­ve­nience of some of the best schools, the in­ter­na­tional school at Gle­nunga High and Lin­den Park Pri­mary are both highly sought af­ter,’’ she says.

‘‘You are also within walk­ing dis­tance of Sey­mour.’’

She says Ms New­bold’s unit is a bit dif­fer­ent be­cause there aren’t many units in the sub­urb.

‘‘The beauty of this place is that it is solid brick and to­tally ren­o­vated in­side,’’ she says.

THE NUM­BER of qual­ity schools in the area and the prox­im­ity to the Burn­side Vil­lage shop­ping cen­tre at­tracted Alexan­dra New­bold to a St Ge­orges unit.

‘‘The lo­ca­tion was per­fect for us with the close prox­im­ity to a board­ing school, and one of our daugh­ter’s could duck to univer­sity,’’ she says.

‘‘And it’s close to Burn­side Vil­lage and other fa­cil­i­ties.’’

Ms New­bold, who is sell­ing her An­gle­sey Ave home, says the street is quiet and also has ac­cess to pub­lic trans­port.

‘‘Even though it is close to Portrush
