We moved from a very large country property. We wanted a large house on a very small block of land, with little maintenance. We got what we wanted - small block but with its own private small pool. Perfect! Everything a tourist would want. No mowing or cutting hedges. We have perfect privacy for the end of those hot days seeing the tourist sites. We had it totally renovated this year - new carpet, new kitchen, new laundry room, new downstairs toilet, and totally painted throughout. We have had solar heating put into the pool, and the pool totally resurfaced and updated. The house inside does not feel small. There is more storage room and space than in our vast property. The three bedrooms upstairs are large. The kitchen is very large and with a huge stone bench with every appliance. There is a totally automatic watering system for the low maintenance plants. We love it, and you will
Brisbane is a river city - newly grown up. It's 11 miles from the coast but has easy access to beaches at the Sunshine Coast (Noosa etc) and the Gold Coast. If countryside and hiking is more your thing, Mt Tamborine can be reached in 1.25 hours. (We know a fantastic 5 star place to stay). You can reach Toowoomba and the Darling Downs in 1.25hrs. Premier golf courses, both public and private, two racecourses, outdoor and indoor gourmet dining. River tours, whale watching from Redcliffe from August to November. The Museum of Modern Art is famous for the collections it shows. Theatres abound, and The Brisbane Entertainment Centre at Boondall, half an hour away, is where the really large, famous, music stars (Pavarotti appeared there) and Beyonce, and The Rolling Stones. Walk to bus and train - 15 mins to city. Surrounded by parks, and opposite one of Brisbane's few Baseball Grounds. Come and see!
