City, bay 10 mins each way


The Advertiser - Real Estate - - Clifton St, Camden Park - TOM DOUGHERTY

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.’’
