City, bay 10 mins each way
CAMDEN PARK is in an ideal location, halfway between the city and the beach, Helen Allford says. ‘‘You are basically next to Glenelg and only 10 minutes from the city, it’s a good spot,’’ she says.
‘‘There are a few schools around the place and a really good bike track that we go walking along, and it also has Harbour Town.’’
Ms Allford, who is selling her Camden Park family home which has three bedrooms, says the house would be ideal for younger people.
‘‘It would be good for someone who likes to get out and about and go to the bay, people who like to go jogging as well, because there are nice places to do that,’’ she says.
She says Clifton St is a quiet location with a lot of families nearby.
‘‘There are quite a few trees around, it is really nice,’’ Ms Allford says.
‘‘There are a lot of young couples around there. Also, it is easy to drive into the city in the morning and there is the tram right there as well, and a gym just down the road.’’
Information from RP Data and the Australian Bureau of Statistics shows that Camden Park measures 1sq/km and has three parks, covering nearly 1 per cent of its area.
The median sale price for houses in March was $485,000, which is less than the $492,000 for the West Torrens council area.
The median price for units is $260,000, which is less than the $267,500 for the council area.
Harcourts Glenelg sales consultant Jamie Thompson, who is selling Ms Allford’s home, says Camden Park is a location that ticks a lot of boxes due to its schools and amenities.
‘‘Being close to the city, the bay and Adelaide Airport is handy,’’ he says.
‘‘You have local schools with Immanuel College there, the tramline is not too far away either.’’
He says Camden Park is an affordable suburb that attracts families looking to upgrade houses.
‘‘Younger people can still afford to get in there. There are some good opportunities for development and there are a lot of older houses that give people the opportunity to get a big block that can be renovated and modernised,’’ he says.
‘‘Executive couples and new homeowners tend to be looking at the houses there.’’
GOOD SPOT: Helen and Ryan Allford enjoy their location midway between the beach and the city.
