Once a rural farming area, then a seaside holiday destination for city dwellers, these days real estate in Brighton on Adelaide’s southern coast is a popular choice for those who long for that beach-holiday vibe all year round.
With its relaxed family-friendly atmosphere, many established families, mature couples and retirees call Brighton home.
Yes, you can buy in real estate in Brighton
Such is the level of interest in real estate here that, according to RealEstate.com.au data, properties for sale in Brighton receive a whopping two and a half times more visits than the average for the rest of the state!
The same source shows that median house prices have stayed within a fairly narrow range over the past eight years, peaking in 2011 and heading back towards that mark in 2016 and 2017.
For those in the market for them, beautiful historic or strikingly modern beachfront homes along the coveted Esplanade sell for from $1M upward.
If you want to live close to the beach but are willing to forgo the million-dollar views, Brighton has plenty of more affordable family homes on offer as well as units perfectly suited to singles and retirees.
Who needs bright lights?
Well served by trains and buses, Brighton is only six kilometres from the Adelaide Airport and is home to one of Australia’s most successful co-educational government high schools, Brighton Secondary School.
Since its establishment in 1952, Brighton Secondary School’s students have achieved outstanding success as scholars, athletes and musicians.
The school holds the very popular Brighton Sunday Market in its grounds on the second and fourth Sundays each month, which raises funds for its Music Parents Support Group.
When it comes to dining out, Brighton cafés and restaurants cater for all budgets and tastes, with ethnic cuisines from around the world featuring strongly.
For an iconic family meal, enjoy takeaways on the beach at sunset from one of the local fish and chipperies, including the Brighton Jetty Cafe—one of The Advertiser’s 2014 top ten Adelaide fish and chip shops.
