Where life turns full Thirkell

The Advertiser - Real Estate - - News - TOM DOUGHERTY

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.’’
