Apartment living

Low on maintenance, high on experiences

Finding somewhere to live is hard, finding somewhere to call home is even harder. Adelaide ticks so many boxes – a moderate Mediterranean climate, a fabulous food and wine culture, world-class universities and schools, an enviable event and festival calendar which is at the heart of the vibrant art and cultural scene. It’s one of the most affordable capital city housing markets in Australia and has a Council and community that is welcoming and genuinely cares about your safety and wellbeing. All this, surrounded by over 700 hectares of glorious parklands, which creates the world’s only city in a park.

With so much so close to your doorstep, an apartment in Adelaide is a residential option that enables a great lifestyle with social, economic and environmental benefits.

Cosmopolitan city convenience

An apartment in Adelaide means you’re never far from the action, or city squares and Park Lands if you want quiet time. Delight in the spontaneity of being able to stop out for drinks with friends without having to worry about missing transport home, pause for dinner in one of the nation’s best restaurants before heading home, or party all night at one of Adelaide’s events.

Transport is never a hassle. Free trams run from South to North Terrace, out to the Entertainment Centre or up to the beautiful Botanic Gardens. Dedicated bikeways mean you can cycle safely, or simply walk the wide boulevards in safety.

More time for the things you love

With places like the Adelaide Central Market as your pantry, Rundle Mall as your wardrobe, and 9.4 square kilometres of Park Lands as your backyard, downsizing your living space can actually increase your quality of life.

Less maintenance means more time doing the things you love, like an intimate dinner party with friends on your balcony, or a street party with thousands just a block or two away.

Spend quality time with the grandkids or furbabies in the Park Lands or city squares, or just lock-up and leave while you travel. And you can still have a green thumb without acreage. Many apartment buildings have rooftop gardens while vertical and community verge gardens are all the rage.

Vertical villages

Modern apartment buildings have become vertical villages, creating an inclusive feeling of community, rather than isolation. Some even have coffee shops or eateries within the complex, so you can meet your neighbours over a coffee, yet still retain your personal space, if you choose.

Before you sign any contracts, do take a moment to read Body Corporate or Strata Title papers and note any special requirements about shared spaces such as car parks, waste disposal areas and communal gardens. Noise can carry through shared walls, so to communicate with your neighbour and consider their lifestyle, especially if you are doing things like home renovations or hosting a party.

When you want to make the most of living in a city that has consistently been ranked in the Top 10 World’s Most Liveable Cities by The Economist magazine, put an apartment in Adelaide on your consideration list. You’ll discover there’s so much to love about it. After all, home is where the heart is.
