    It is a nice enough suburb, a quite residential area of mainly 50s/60s/70s style houses. It is the next suburb inland from Henley Beach which is very popular, so people who can't afford a house in Henley are moving to Fulham and some of the older houses are getting knocked down and new ones built. Historically there has been quite a large Italian population in that area, and there were a lot of market gardens which are gradually getting sold off for housing. It has Fulham Gardens shopping centre with a Target, Foodland and local shops, McDonalds, plus it is not too far from West Lakes mall, the beaches at Grange, Henley, West Beach and Glenelg, the airport etc so a very good location in terms of being close to things.

     

    To repeat what I said in a post about Seaton yesterday, try not to live too close to Tapleys Hill Road as it is a really busy road and the traffic volume builds up early in the morning, so it is pretty noisy, especially the trucks.

    I live in Fulham Gardens and think it is a perfect location...perfect distance to the city and a five minute drive to the beach (half hour walk) Just around the corner from local shops, airport, golf courses, harbour town, West Lakes... I am property manager and think that this is a good affordable location! :D
