Lifestyle

Shady streets, spacious blocks and unspoiled architecture make St Peters and College Park two of the most desirable suburbs in Adelaide. Located within arm’s reach of some of Adelaide’s most vibrant suburbs, this is where Adelaide’s high rollers call home, relishing in the peace, privacy and tranquillity of the surrounding area.

Bound by the prestigious St. Peter’s College for boys to the west and adjacent to the popular River Torrens Linear Trail to the north, the area is grand but unassuming. College Park consists of just a few dappled streets that are filled with some of Adelaide’s most expensive properties, while St Peters is situated to the north-east and is conveniently arranged in eleven neat avenues that cross over Stephen’s Terrace. Both areas are filled with stately homes surrounded by manicured gardens, yet the neighbourhood still feels warm, calm and inviting.

When in need of entertainment and amenities, locals are spoilt for choice with the CBD, North Adelaide, Norwood Parade and the Avenues Shopping Centre all within easy reach. The location also means you are never far away from major sporting events, annual arts festivals and the city’s entertainment precincts.

Families flock to College Park and St Peters for the well-respected private college, reputable primary school and child-friendly facilities. The area has a number of playgrounds, open spaces and reserves for little feet to run off steam, while St Peters Town Hall and Library provide a great outlet for usy minds.

Property

College Park has retained the visual integrity of its turn-of-the-century architecture. Grand old bungalows on spacious grounds have been well-maintained and lovingly restored by families over generations. Marlborough Street hosts some of the most beautiful Victorian villas in Adelaide, complete with beautiful bay windows and blossoming front gardens. Majestic heritage-listed homes can also be found dotted along Pembroke, Rugby and Trinity Streets, many of which overlook St Peter’s College.

St Peters, in its precise grid pattern, has tastefully restored homes and a well-heeled reputation. St Peters offers more real estate diversity with luxurious bungalows sharing streets with modern architecturally-designed residences and a sprinkling of multi-level unit blocks. Seventh Avenue exemplifies the well-manicured homes and gardens that make the suburb so appealing.
