Buyers flock to eastern-suburbs gem

A stylish renovated home in Magill has generated huge interest just days after being launched, further underlining the strength of the Adelaide property market.

The four-bedroom, boomerang-style home attracted almost 100 groups through the first weekend of inspections following a flood of online inquiries.

“We expected the home to be popular, but the initial response has been amazing,” Toop&Toop Director of Residential Sales, Bronte Manuel, said.

“To get those numbers over the first two days is exceptional.

“It’s quite indicative of the Adelaide market at the moment, though.

“There’s a huge appetite for these types of homes … well-proportioned, well-located properties with some room to move.

“The fact that listing levels in Adelaide are quite low is a factor, too.

“With fewer homes on the market, there’s even stronger demand for quality listings.”


Conveniently positioned on a 684m2 allotment between Magill Road and The Parade, the double-brick home at 33 Pepper Street was built in 1960 but has been renovated to a high standard and offers significant street appeal.

The light-filled property features an open-plan kitchen, living and dining zone, with double doors leading to a timber deck that’s ideal for summer entertaining.

The kitchen is equally impressive, with quality stainless steel appliances, gas cooking, stone benchtops and stylish pendant lighting, with an oversize island overlooking the lounge.

The bedrooms are particularly spacious, the master overlooking the immaculate backyard that is fully fenced and edged by mature manicured hedges.

“The owners have done a wonderful job with improvements to the home. It’s a real credit to them,” Manuel said.

“We’ve had a real cross-section of buyers showing interest in the property, from young couples to families looking to get access to the Magill Primary and Norwood Morialta school zones.

“Yes, the market is extremely strong right now, but I think this home would be popular, regardless of the conditions.”

The home at 33 Pepper Street, Magill is scheduled to go to auction on Sunday, November 8 at 1pm.
