Re­lax, en­joy coastal views

The Advertiser - Real Estate - - Manchester Circuit, Craigmore - TOM DOUGHERTY

CRAIG­MORE has great views and is very pop­u­lar with fam­i­lies, Tom Giordi­maina says. ‘‘I’ve en­joyed it, it is a con­ve­nient area where ev­ery­thing is around the cor­ner, and the neigh­bours have been good too,’’ he says.

‘‘There’s a lot of young fam­i­lies around, there are al­ways kids around, it is quite good for that.’’

Mr Giordi­maina, who is sell­ing his sin­gle-storey mod­ern fam­ily home, says the property would be ideal for a fam­ily.

‘‘I liked the spot that it is in where you have the views,’’ he says.

‘‘We wanted to build some­thing low main­te­nance, some­where you can re­lax and en­joy the views.

‘‘It would be good for a young fam­ily, or some­one that doesn’t want to do any­thing, it would suit a va­ri­ety.’’

He says there a lot of ameni­ties nearby that means you don’t have to ven­ture far from the area to get ev­ery­thing you need.

‘‘You have Munno Para Shop­ping Cen­tre down the road and the new Blake­view shops,’’ he says.

‘‘There is a lot down the road, Bun­nings, ev­ery­thing you need, so it’s a good lo­ca­tion.’’

In­for­ma­tion from RP Data and the Aus­tralian Bureau of Sta­tis­tics shows that Craig­more mea­sures 5sq km and has 39 parks, cov­er­ing nearly 5 per cent of its area.

The me­dian sale price for houses in April was $269,000, which is more than the $255,000 for the Play­ford coun­cil area.

The me­dian price for units is $186,000, which is more than the $146,500 for the coun­cil area.

Ray White Glynde sales con­sul­tant Robert Mil­li­gan, who is sell­ing Mr Giordi­ma­nia’s property, says Craig­more has a great com­mu­nity feel to it.

‘‘It is a thriv­ing area and Blakes Cross­ing is nice and close,’’ he says.

‘‘It is an up and com­ing area, where this house is it’s rel­a­tively prime.’’

An at­trac­tion to the area for many is the views, Mr Mil­li­gan says.

‘‘Be­cause it is the foothills, from the back of the house you have great views to the ocean and the coast­line,’’ he says.

‘‘It is quite exclusive be­cause on the high side of Craig­more there are bet­ter qual­ity homes.

‘‘Most of the homes there are new and af­ford­able.’’
