ROSTREVOR is a good fam­ily-friendly sub­urb with ex­cel­lent schools, Mas­simo Pis­cioneri says. ‘‘I chose to build in Rostrevor be­cause I went to school in the area and grew up not far by in New­ton,’’ he says.

‘‘The neigh­bours are friendly, it has nice streets.

‘‘There are a cou­ple of good schools there, there is Strad­broke and there is Nor­wood Mo­ri­alta which is one of the bet­ter pub­lic schools and Rostrevor is good as well,’’ he says.

Mr Pis­cioneri, who is sell­ing his Mo­ri­alta Rd, Rostrevor, home says there are good shop­ping op­tions with Mag­ill Rd nearby.

‘‘Mag­ill Rd isn’t far, Glynde Shop­ping Cen­tre is not far away straight down Arthur St, lit­er­ally two min­utes away,’’ he says.

‘‘Ev­ery­thing is close by, and there are bus stops all within walk­ing dis­tance, plus there is a child­care not far as well.’’

In­for­ma­tion from RP Data and the Aus­tralian Bureau of Sta­tis­tics shows that Rostrevor has 11 parks cov­er­ing nearly 2 per cent of its area, and it is part of both the Ade­laide Hills and Camp­bell­town coun­cil ar­eas.

The me­dian sale price for houses in De­cem­ber was $486,500, which is above the $462,000 for the Camp­bell­town coun­cil area.

The me­dian price for units is $515,000, which is less than the $319,500 for the coun­cil area.

Har­ris Real Es­tate sales con­sul­tant Si­mon Welford, who is sell­ing Mr Pis­cioneri’s home, says Rostrevor is a good-look­ing sub­urb with plenty of at­trac­tions.

‘‘It is a leafy sub­urb, close to the Hills, it is very peace­ful and there is a lot of wildlife around, and Mo­ri­alta Con­ser­va­tion Park is there as well,’’ he says.

He says the the area is pop­u­lar with fam­i­lies and added that there could be good growth in the area.

‘‘It is a good fam­ily sub­urb, there is also a lot of po­ten­tial for first-home buy­ers to buy into it as well,’’ he says.

‘‘It is af­ford­able and there are some big prop­er­ties there.’’
