What is it that makes the suburb of Unley such a sort after area for the people of Adelaide to want to live in? The list of possibilities is long.
Perhaps it’s the fact that this desired suburb is directly south of the CBD and only a few kilometres out which equates to a 2 minute car ride or a short 10 minute bike ride to work. Other suggestions that make this such a tightly held location could be the local school which the former female prime minister of Australia Julia Gillard once attended, Unley Primary School which is located on Kitchener Street in Netherby. And finally perhaps the stand out reason for this location to have such an amazing reputation is its historical houses and tree lined streets, locations such as Victoria Avenue, Northgate Street and Grove Street have to hold some of the state’s largest properties still in original condition dating back to the early 1900’s and even earlier.
Real Estate is a huge commitment and particularly when you’re thinking of buying in the prestigious suburb of Unley an investment in the future that you are guaranteed never too loose on. With Real Estate companies such as L J Hooker, Owens and Casserly, Harris, Bernard H Booth and Smallacombe frequently selling properties in the area they are certainly the seller’s choice of real estate agents when it comes to listing a house for sale and when they do list a property for sale it never stays on the market long, these gems are always snapped up quick smart, whether it be by auction or public treaty not much of the of the real estate stays for sale longer than 3 weeks.
Its human nature to want to use local trades in your area when it comes to getting jobs around the home done. Things like garden up keep, home cleaning and electrical work are fairly common jobs which one would expect to need regular work of this type done around the home and when it comes to plumbing the locals always demand an Unley Plumber. By using a local tradie you know that they have your best interests at heart and they know the history of the area like the back of their hands.
Something that you will need to get use to when living in and around the suburbs of Unley is carefully negotiating your way down the very busy Unley road. From Cross roads through to Greenhill road Unley road is a 4 lane road, but due to amount of cars which park to the side of the road it leaves this busy road as a 2 lane way road. Monday to Friday is when you will really experience the chaos which can be Unley road, cars weaving in and out carefully passing through tight gaps and plumbing vans trying to reach there next project as an Unley plumber. Although the speed limit up and down Unley road is sign posted as 60kphr you’ll be lucky if your motor vehicle ever creeps over 40kphr, try spotting the local they’ll be the one carefully weaving in and out of traffic with true skill!
On a lazy Sunday morning you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to getting a pleasant cup of coffee or tea with cafés such as Cibo Espresso, Cotto and Paleo Café just the tip of the ice berg to spoil you for choice. Saturday’s and Sundays the beautifully paved King William road is very busy with the locals getting a bite to eat and even a refreshing drink at the Hyde Park Tavern. Saturday evening world class dining comes alive with 5 star restaurants like the very popular Assaggio Ristorante, Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones recently dinned there during their last tour of Adelaide and sampled many of South Australia’s local produce and wines from the Barossa and McLaren Vale and from all reports they thoroughly enjoyed their time here.
As you can see there are many reasons why Unley is and probably will remain Adelaide’s first choice for housing, relaxation, family time and most importantly don’t forget the quality plumbers in Unley, SA.
