Athelstone is a neat little suburb sitting on the foothills of Adelaide and part of the Campbelltown Council. It is approximately 25-30 minutes drive away from the CBD or approx 45 minutes via public bus and is picture perfect.
With house prices ranging from $466,000 for a 3 bedroom home to $565,000 for a 4 bedroom home, and rentals sitting at a median price of $375 per week for a 3-4 bedroom property, it's perhaps not the easiest place for first home buyers. But rest assured it does make for a solid investment, whether it be a family home or investment property.
Here's what residents have to say about the suburb of Athelstone:
"SHHHH don't tell anyone but it's the place to be!! We moved here a few months ago and still haven't found anything wrong with it... It's got all we could ask for"
"Athelstone is the best suburb in the whole of Adelaide. I think Athelstone is great suburb because: Lots of places for the kids to play, Has lots of walking tracks, lots of native animals, lots of national parks. It's a great place to live."
"Fantastic place to live, so close to the hills, linear park track and even the city. Love it."
"Good location and large home. Athelstone is a very location which is quiet and good view to the hill. It is difficult to find a four bed room property at this price."
"Fabulous area to raise kids. In the foothills of the Adelaide Hills there is a good chance you'll see and hear some native wildlife. There are some great parks and playgrounds around and a few schools as well. It is a great area for children to grow up with the benefit of not being too far from the city. The trip into the city is an easy one. There are plenty of three bedroom houses around on good sized blocks. It really is a family's paradise. It backs up against linear park in places and Black Hill Conservation Park. If you get a view of the hill it is stunning. I looked at a house up here and the view from the kitchen was almost enough to convince me to buy a house that really wasn’t suitable."
