Springfield

Suburb Profile

Overview

Located in the foothills of the Mount Lofty Ranges, Springfield is an affluent neighbourhood that lays claim to some of South Australia’s most prized real estate. With leafy streets and sweeping views over the Adelaide plains, Springfield is characterised by its ornate street lamps, meandering creeks and luxurious mansions. 

Lifestyle

Springfield offers the ultimate in luxurious living. Set against a backdrop of iconic Australian bushland, the neighbourhood is filled with opulent homes and sprawling gardens, creating an aura of grandeur and exclusivity.  

Merely 15 minutes from the city centre, Springfield provides locals with a country-living feel with all the conveniences of city living. The tree-lined streets, decorative lighting and historic stone bridges make for a distinctly European ambience, while the surrounding conservation parks and walking trails offer peace and tranquillity.

Springfield attracts old and new money. Postcode-proud locals usually stay put, enjoying the area’s close proximity to the hills and the city. While there are no retail amenities or entertainment on offer, prestigious schools and upmarket shopping can be found in neighbouring suburbs and the popular restaurant and café strips of Unley and King William Roads are just a short drive away.

The historic Carrick Hill manor is located in Springfield, providing locals and visitors with a picturesque labyrinth of rose gardens and architecture to explore. On the weekends, locals make the most of living in the foothills, picnicking in the nearby quarry, going for hikes in Belair National Park or strolling through the nearby Waite Arboretum. A short drive to the freeway allows for a quick getaway to the Adelaide Hills or to the coastal towns down south, while some of Adelaide’s best beaches are a leisurely car trip to the west. 

The Market

Springfield’s homes are some of the biggest, boldest and most highly prized in Adelaide. From fine manors steeped in history to elegant Georgian residences and architecturally-designed family homes, Springfield real estate is luxurious and flashy. Every street in the area is picture perfect but Springfield Avenue, with its conifers and curved ascent, is particularly breathtaking.
