"Eighth Street Gawler"

A lovely quiet area, with treets both sides of the road, giving it a nice shaded look, though when its drops its berries it can be untidy till the council sweeper comes along. Road is very quiet and hardly used as its a terminating road. Its situated just behind the main road, and has a lovely footpath and bridge access to the main shopping areas which take about 5 mins to walk to. Mitre 10 is just behind this street for all you handymen out there. At nights a couple of possums are out and about, but ambiance wise its very quiet for a street in the heart of a busy town. Access to the street is limited so you will unlikely get any traffic other than local.
Council rates arent too bad, the area growth is good, I would stay away from the areas towards the end within 2 or so houses as they CAN be in the flood zone and the water gets pretty close. thats if it ever occurs again, (nothing insurance cant fix im sure if your covered) which by rights it should not as the council were supposed to take preventative measures after last time. Occured twice when i was there ..about 10 year gaps ~ Its a glorious sight to see though when the entire park at the end is under water and the water is as high as the bridge.
House blocks are generous in size, not too large, not too small, everyone generally keeps a tidy garden making the area pleasing to look at. Further down the street are self contained unit complex with lockup gates, and a lovely 2 story complex of town houses.
Doctor surgeries/Chemist are a 5 min away perfect for the elderly.
