The 16 Playford Boulevard property is positioned approximately 24km north of the Adelaide CBD. It is surrounded by a wide range of community services and amenities including the Elizabeth Shopping Centre, Elizabeth Magistrates Court, Elizabeth Police Station and is well serviced by a public transport.
