LJ Hooker sales agent Marge Marsh agrees the beachside suburb has plenty to offer. ‘‘People don’t realise that with Hallett Cove, it is so well located that you are only 10 minutes to Marion, 30 minutes to the CBD, 10 minutes to Colonnades and 15 minutes to wineries,’’ she says.
’’The suburb is also close to Seacliff, which is ideal for babies, and Christies Beach, which is good for surfing.’’
Ms Marsh says Hallett Cove offers coastal living, with lovely views and ideal weather conditions.
‘‘Even on the hottest day, you get lovely sea breezes coming off the ocean,’’ she says.
