"best suburb"

the best suburb with everything close by. Neat and decent with great schools and parks around. No housing trust houses in this suburb that will make a standout. The best Northern suburbs to live in.

"Gorgeous"

Big houses for decent prices in a nice clean environment. Got a son in the local preschool and daughter in primary and we are very happy with it. The area is mainly occupied with young and middle aged tradies from good families.
No riff raff around here. Recommended

"Best pocket in the North with value for money"

Note: Not a real-estate agent or a paid sponsor - just an average local resident.

Has the safety of Golden Grove and Gulfview Heights but at a much lower price.. I was initially skeptical about buying a house here but after 5 years here and not facing a single incident, I can confidently say this was a great decision.
The ONLY thing I would say is a pain here is that shops are not nearby - you'd have to drive for 4-5 mins to get to one but I guess that helps with keeping the riff-raff out. The local primary school here is pretty decent too.

If anything needs to change, it is the name of the suburb. Having the "Salisbury" tag does not help it's reputation. Sad but true.
Get rid of it and you will notice prices go up dramatically because more people will come here to look for houses and realize what a great place this is to live..

Rentals in Salisbury Heights

"Quiet, Green and Spacious"

I've lived in the suburb for about seven years after buying my first home here, was the best investment ever as the property was a great price for a fantastic building on a large block of land, and the appreciation of its value has been fantastic. My dog loves my large backyard and the nearby parks and ovals all in walking distance and are very spacious. The streets are tree lined and houses are spaced apart enough to give privacy and peace. Salisbury Council is a very progressive council and rates are cheap. I do my shopping up the hill at the gorgeous Golden Grove shops and I have everything I need within a short driving distance. The people who live in the neighbourhood are friendly but keep to themselves, unfortunately there are two houses close by that have had occupants of a less than desirable nature but I have lived in affluent suburbs like St Peters and Tranmere and had the same experience there, always one bad apple in a bunch! The only other negative is that due to the spacious and nearby parks, the occasional idiot like to set fireworks off, but that is not the norm thank god. So don't let the name 'Salisbury' put you off, this suburb is fantastic, and well worth investing or renting in for singles, couples and families alike :)

Great for

  • Spacious parks and ovals
  • Nearby shops
  • Friendly neighbours
  • Excellent views
  • Good location
  • Leafy and quiet

It's a great part of town.The Strange Part of the area is that It's Technically Part of the City of Tea Tree Gully

"Best Suburb in the North!"

Beautiful place to grow up! Salisbury Heights is the best suburb in the north - it's quiet, safe, affordable and has million dollar views. There is something to suit everyone's budget: the smaller homes (ie: those in St Albans estate, or on the 'flat' near the primary school) in the lower end of the price bracket but still have plenty of room for a family, while the larger homes offer bigger blocks, grander living and lots and lots of room.

Great for

  • Leafy and quiet
  • Excellent views
  • Good location

Not great for

  • Lack of public transport access

"Room With a View"

Enjoy stunning views of city night lights and sunny, luscious greenery!

Salisbury Heights is a great location, quiet and peaceful yet only minutes from the Golden Grove Village. With works to start on the new Foodland Shopping Centre on the corner of Main North and Saints Road, local shopping truly is local!

From sturdy 2 bedroom units to stunning enormous homes built on acreage, the price can range from $250,000 to $1.2 million on the exclusive Coomurra Drive.

"Position and peace"

Quiet and peaceful, yet in a great central location bordering Parafields just minutes away, central to Elizabeth but far enough away, and also very close driving to Golden Grove and Tea Tree Plaza.

Overall in a perfect spot, most properties are set high on the hill, so most enjoy great views of either greenery or the city and night lights.

Value for money, homes are usually 1980's build and although not as 'pretty' as say newer homes make up for this in size usually larger than the average home. Some very expensive homes in the mix only helping the area to retain full value on resale these include Coomurra Drive.

Invest and live here and you should always at least get your money back.Cheaper end of Salisbury Heights is the lower Main North Road end, but if that is your budget sat $250 to $350k then still a worthy investment. Higher up the hill, Nalara Place etc, prices increase generally starting at $450k upwards to $550k plus, Coomurra Drive $600k to 1.2 million.
