Where life turns full Thirkell
BEAUMONT is a quiet suburb with unparalleled views over Adelaide, Hannah Eustice says. ‘‘I’m a Hills girl originally, so we loved that Beaumont has that leafy outlook and it’s halfway between the Hills and the city,’’ she says.
‘‘You feel like you have fresh air and it is a bit of an escape.’’
Ms Eustice, who is selling her singlestorey four-bedroom Thirkell Ave, Beaumont, property, says she was attracted by its seclusion.
‘‘It is very private, you can’t see your neighbours,’’ she says.
‘‘The views of the city are stunning...it is a really warm and lovely house, the only reason we are selling is because we have outgrown it.’’
She says the area is ideal for someone looking to bring up a family and has great shopping options as well.
‘‘Linden Park Primary is just down the road, and it is very close to Burnside Village, which is great,’’ Ms Eustice says.
‘‘And there are some new little coffee shops that are opening up in the area as well which is good for weekend coffees, it is becoming very cosmopolitan.’’
Information from RP Data and the Australian Bureau of Statistics shows that Beaumont measures 2sq km and has four parks, covering nearly 4 per cent of its area.
The median sale price for houses in April was $795,000, which is less than the $860,000 for the Burnside council area.
The median price for units is $682,500, which is more than the $395,000 for the council area.
Toop&Toop Real Estate sales consultant Kay Morris, who is selling Ms Eustice’s property, says Beaumont is an attraction to many because of its proximity to the Adelaide Hills.
‘‘It is in the foothills so it has the elevation, you don’t feel like you are right in suburbia but you are,’’ she says.
‘‘You have great parks in the area and fantastic walking trails, and great shopping as well.’’
She says there are a lot of sporting facilities near the suburb as well.
‘‘There is tennis, the bowls, it has everything really,’’ she says.
‘‘And fantastic, quality schools with Linden Park around the corner...the Glenunga International School is just around the corner as well,’’ Ms Morris says.
‘‘It’s close to the city as well, no more than a 15 or 20 minute drive.’’
