Being one of the many people who have not visited before being offered a job I'm a bit stuck on deciding where to live!
Just wondered if anyone would like to help out a little.
We have 2 kids (12 & 7) so would be great to have a secondary & Primary close together.
My job is based in Fullarton and a lot of the work will be on client sites in and around the city. We want to be in good reach of the City but so long as we have good shops nearby, parks (we're bringing a dog) and even a cinema we'd be happy (currently have to travel 40mins to get to one here!). We'd like to be near to the beach (or at least see it) so we know we're in Oz but only really want to stretch to $400pw for rent and looking for 2 reception rooms and/or a 4th bedroom.
Also concerned about the Flight path - should I be? What areas would be affected by this?
So... we've considered Seaton / Henley beach area - seem to have good public transport links although assumed problems are smaller houses (in our price range) compared to further south.
Brighton, Hove, Marion all seem attractive areas and reasonable cost. How far would you say to the City?
Hallet Cove has some good sized houses with sea views, but is it too far for a daily commute? Also is public transport any good from here? NB I am a consultant and used to travelling a long way to get to a meeting so wont be too put off with a commute, but would it get too much day after day!??
Is a pool a possibility in this price range? BTW does the landlord pay for maintenance on pool or is that another expense we have to consider?
If anyone can advise on these areas and recommend schools that would be a great help!
Sorry seemed to have asked a lot here! Any advice most welcome.
