After the double hit of the bushfires and COVID-19, the Adelaide Hills is looking out towards an exciting new year. Our lovely region fared well compared to major cities, as we saw the trend of people relocating to areas like ours that favour a distinct lifestyle (while still offering proximity to cosmopolitan hubs).
More and more, Adelaide Hills is becoming a world of its own. Not just a destination, but a new way of living. This is reflected in the rising property prices, which are predicted to jump again this year, with experts predicting up to 10%. Since March 2020, Adelaide real estate prices increased by 3.5%. Major developments are running parallel with this growth, only adding to the allure of our region. This undoubtedly affects the Adelaide Hills property market.
New Hills hotels, wineries, retail hubs & festivals
The highly awaited Sequoia is set to open in April. Praised as a luxury lodge in the Mount Lofty House estate, Sequoia will welcome guests into 14 contemporary residences overlooking the stunning Piccadilly Valley. But you don’t have to stay the night to experience Sequoia. There’s an on-site day spa, a New York-style cocktail bar, and a fine dining restaurant. Yet another reason to start your search for a house for sale in the Adelaide Hills.
Main & Cherry
Michael Sexton, the Top 50 winemaker finalist in Australia’s Young Gun of Wine and owner of Main & Cherry is opening a cellar door in Chandler’s Hill. Situated en route to the Fleurieu Peninsula atop an elevated vineyard, you’re going to want to time your visit to with the sunset.
Gin lovers, get ready for one of the Adelaide Hill’s finest events in 2021. On the June 19 and 20 weekend, meet 25 Australian craft distillers and try some of the 150 new gins. All drinks are included in the price of the ticket, so if you love food and wine, the Gin Palooza is packed with value. This festival will challenge the idea that Adelaide Hills is renowned just for good wine. This can all be in your backyard of your Adelaide Hills property.
The bedazzling Mount Barker ‘square’
An under-utilised section of Hutchinson Street will transform into a European-style town square this year. It’ll be home to an innovation hub, civic office, and a new library. Future plans for the development might also attract additional offices, hotel accommodation, residential units, and an artisan market.
