around the cor­ner,’’ he says. ‘‘It’s next to a park, it’s handy to the Wood­croft shop­ping cen­tre and handy to the school for our grand­chil­dren: we’ve got some at Wood­croft Pri­mary and some at Wood­croft Col­lege.

‘‘We at­tend all the ac­tiv­i­ties at the col­lege and the pri­mary school.’’

There’s also a skate park nearby and a bike track un­der con­struc­tion to keep ac­tive grand­chil­dren busy, he says.

El­ders Mor­phett Vale agent Debbie Hutchi­son says Wood­croft Col­lege is the rea­son many fam­i­lies move to the sub­urb.

‘‘It’s very good; it’s quite well­known and it’s very hard to get into un­less you’re liv­ing in the zone,’’ Ms Hutchi­son says.

‘‘As the sub­urb was de­vel­oped from farm­ing land just 15 years ago, the houses are no older than that.

‘‘They’re not brand new but they are very fam­ily-ori­ented – most are on the larger side and there are a lot of four-bed­room homes.’’

She says there is easy ac­cess to the city as well as McLaren Vale and the south­ern beaches..

‘‘You’ve got the best of both worlds, re­ally,’’ she says.

Mr Priest says the fam­ily will miss the peo­ple on their street.

‘‘If I go to move my boat, I’ll turn around and I’ve got four or five guys help­ing me move it; if a dog goes miss­ing, ev­ery­one’s look­ing for it,’’ he says.

‘‘If I hadn’t bought a busi­ness on the Yorke Penin­sula, we wouldn’t be mov­ing.’’

HANDY: Donna and War­ren Priest say the area has plenty to keep grand­chil­dren Mikae­lah and Tyler busy.
