Reviews of Clapham, SA

"I love living in Clapham"

One feels very safe in Clapham. I have lived here for 24 years. I sent my kids to the Clapham PS and Unley HS which are both good state schools. Its a nice leafy green area and the houses are well kept, mostly privately owned. The neighbours are friendly. I often go for walks around the area at night on my own, and feel 100% safe (as a female!). It is close to the Lynton railway station and bus stops. The beauty is that we have a lovely bush walking track near by (Lynton) going up to Belair or Blackwood. I love this track (or tracks as there are many). I also like being close to Foodland Pasadena, which is one of the largest supermarkets in SA and offers great variety.
The only down fall living here is the area is so expensive to purchase a house in at the moment. Expect some cracking in a lot of houses, especially the older ones, but cracks can be repaired, if you do it properly. They maybe cracked but there usually double brick homes and more solid than these new flimsy houses. The other problem is that Mitcham Council will not allow you to knock a home down and sub-divide unless you have at least 850 sqm of land (425 squares each) and most land is around the 700 sqms. The area is quiet and lots of beautiful birds chirping. Clapham is only 15 minutes drive to Glenelg and 15 minutes to Adelaide. It is near the Centennial park cemetery (which is also nice to walk around). Also near Mitcham shopping centre and cinema. There is a dog park at Eliza Place CC Hood park with toilets. And my house has never been broken into!

"Lost little gem"

Great place to live & commute to city for work or social life. Easy access to hills or southern beaches & Fleurieu. Most people in Adelaide have no idea where Clapham is until you tell them. Very affordable for families or new home buyers. Nice size blocks.

"Nice & easy"

Nice & easy place to live, easy commute to the city, beach & hills. plenty of shopping at Mitcham. Council need to keep sub division to a minimum.

"Quiet well maintained suburb - perfect for families."

We have been in Clapham for 2 years now and absolutely love it. The area is peaceful and well maintained and love that we can drive to work in under 20 minutes (we work in the CBD). Neighbours in our street are mostly young families and are very friendly. Blocks sizes are large and affordable. Great value suburb without any comprises.

"Onece you get away form the main roads its a nice area"

If you were just passing by Clapham on the main roads you wouldn't think much of it. However, it’s not far from the city and off the main tracks it really is a lovely area. There are tree lined streets and some lovely older houses making the area full of charm.

There is easy access to Marion and Unley road so there are plenty of shops to buy what you need.
It is well serviced by public transport, predominantly buses, making the trip over to Flinders University, Marion and the city very easy. The train could also be an option depending on where you are in Clapham.

It’s still affordable for what it is and where it is, although it’s getting a bit expensive for a lot of people.
