Take a pick of good schools
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.’’
