"Trott Park a hidden retreat."

Trott Park is a hidden suburb where people don't usually find it on realestate.com.au or domain.com.au. But as previous comments is a hidden gem. It has great recreational areas and a lovely parade of local shops on Heysen Drive. The only downside is the development of the express way at the moment which is creating a lot of dust and noise and will unfortunately have an impact on properties in the area.
Pros
  • Close to recreational parks.
  • Close to schools.
  • Lovely neighbourhood.
Cons
  • Noise of southern expressway.
  • Lack of transport.

  • Large recreational areas with BBQ areas
Cons
  • Need a car
  • no shops
  • bit of bluestone on the land

Hove is a quiet friendly suburb by the beach.

Plus the added bonus of being by the beach. If your energetic enough you can walk to the Marion shopping centre!
Pros
  • Great transport links.
  • Safe and secure.
  • Friendly neighbours.
Cons
  • Lack of nightlife.
  • Lack of restaurants.
