One of our Suburbs makes Saturday’s Advertiser Real Estate Liftout.

Lynton Ave, Millswood
LESS than 5km from the CBD, filled with character homes and with transport and shopping options within a stone’s throw, Millswood is a popular spot.
Randall Kitson spent time living in his late mother’s house on Lynton Ave, which she bought about 40 years ago, “The street runs off Goodwood Road and it’s close to the shops Big W and Woolworths at Cumberland Park, the Goodwood Rd (Capri) cinema and shops. The train goes into the city, the Glenelg tram is a 10-minute walk and there are buses from Winston Ave,” Mr Kitson says.
“It’s a really central spot . “Lynton Ave extends to house number 84 and features a large number of character homes. Mr Randall’s mother’s home was built in the 1920s.-Probably half the street was built in 1925,” he says. “There are quite a lot of bungalows and houses with sandstone fronts. It’s a quiet street with mostly all large blocks and it’s very leafy and green.”
Information from RP Data shows Millswood is about 1sq km in size and three parks take up 10 per cent of the area.
The current median sales price, for June, is $585,000, compared with $625,000 for the Unley Council area. Harcourts Venn Millar sales partner Elizabeth De Boo says Lynton Ave is a well-known street. “It’s probably one of the most prized streets in the area people usually say `Ooh, Lynton Ave’,” Ms De Boo says.
This side of Millswood is more affordable. We do have our million dollar sales but it’s not as common.
 “Ms De Boo says good schools in the area are a beacon for families. “Cabra College is a big drawcard for the area and there are other good schools as well St Joseph’s and Goodwood Primary,” she says. “It’s just a good little area.
Ray White Plympton principal Bronwyn Petherick agrees Millswood is popular with families. “It’s close to a lot of good private and public schools and there’s a mix of styles,” Ms Petherick says.

PS     My wife has always said that as a little girl she used to often ride her bike or walk the streets of this little suburb as it was her favourite suburb.
Well we do live close…..!
