Magill home tops list of most-viewed SA properties

A couple of years after attracting a huge international audience, a Magill home sold by TOOP+TOOP is back in the headlines.

The decidedly quirky home at 10 Melory Crescent attracted around 2.5 million views on after it was first listed in 2019, mainly due to a cellar crammed with Halloween items like ghost mannequins, oversized bats and spiders.


It was clearly the most-viewed home on the property portal in South Australia over the past five years. The second-highest ranked property on the list, released this week, achieved 240,000 views.

The Magill home, which sold to a local buyer last year for $1.19m, featured on news services around the world and attracted massive crowds to open inspections.


“I’ve never seen a house as fascinating as this in 40 years,” Anthony Toop said at the time.

“The owner’s favourite pastime was crafting Halloween items … she just loved it and it’s why we’ve left them there. It’s pretty cool.”

While the Melory Crescent property was clearly the standout performer in terms of views, a beautiful home at 28 Howard Street, Collinswood also attracted its share of interest to give TOOP+TOOP its second home in the Top 10 list.
