Presented to the market, sparkling clean, and ready for the family, this solid and comfortable family home sits on a very valuable 809m2.

Three bedrooms, bathroom and renovated kitchen upstairs are complemented by an open plan lounge and dining, leading to an expansive back deck. Up nice and high to catch the bay breezes, this is where you’ll spend most of your time with friends and family.

Downstairs there is room for further family living, with an enclosed garage, 2 large rooms with built in storage, and a bathroom and laundry area.

And even more outside! Cool off in the spa after a hot day, tinker in the massive shed (with power), or spend some time in the garden. There’s plenty of room for all the family to have their own space.

Solar hot water with a huge capacity has been thoughtfully installed for your pocket.

Walk to the Esplanade in less than 20 minutes, walk to the shops in 20 minutes, and the Primary school, bakery and medical centre and transport are all within 5 minutes’ walking distance.

Make time to inspect – this will sell fast. Please call Takeala to book an inspection.

I love surprises and if you do too, then here is a home that delivers on its promise. Set on the rise of the hill, on a level allotment, this could easily be a four bedroom home, by converting the existing office to a fourth bedroom. Timber floating floors and a well coordinated carpet choice for the bedrooms have created a very functional and stylish statement in this easily maintained home. Perfectly suited to buyers new to the market, or downsizing from a larger space.

All bedrooms are complete with built in robes and ceiling fans. A two way bathroom doubles as an ensuite to the main bedroom which features additional overhead storage.

The kitchen is at the centre of the home, close to the laundry, and in an open plan space leading to the generous alfresco area. Much of the home has been updated and upgraded – the kitchen benches and under bench cupboards have been replaced, a dishwasher installed, and new fencing and gates put in place, amongst many other features.

And the feature packed home continues to deliver on its promise outside. The under roofline garage has front and back roller doors, and is carpeted, for easy conversion to an office space, or additional living. In the low maintenance outdoor area you will find a large 6 metre x 2.5 metre shed, and another garden shed at the side (3.5m x 1.8m). For entertainers, invite your guests for all weather entertaining in the expansive 8m x 5m alfresco area with insulated roof.

Side access provides additional parking for caravan, campervan, trailer, or boat.

For investors, this is the perfect investment property – such low maintenance and in such good condition. This property is currently rented at $420 per week.

In summary:

* three bedrooms with builtin robes and ceiling fans
study, or convert to fourth bedroom
* open plan kitchen and dining
* air conditioned, ceiling fans, security screens, and fully fenced
* two way bathroom, serves as ensuite to main bedroom
* refurbished kitchen, with dishwasher

Make time to see this property. Be pleasantly surprised as you place a tick next to each of your property criteria. We look forward to meeting you at one of the Open Homes or a private inspection.

Only 10 minutes’ drive from our beautiful waterfront, and under 7 minutes to the Gateway Motorway, schools, shopping, and transport (rail and bus). The largest, and newly renovated, shopping centre close by to this home is Carindale – only 10 km.

Another successful auction campaign leading to a sale price well above market feedback.  This was a tenanted property, situated in one of Wynnum’s lovely wide streets, in a family oriented location.  The tenants were awesome – always keeping the property tidy, and allowing inspections. The buyers moved in today, with their doggie, and sat on the kitchen floor eating their goodies I had given them – planning their bright future in their new home.  My sellers can now proceed with their plans, with the final sale price exceeding their expectations. I am so grateful to be able to help my clients with their financial and property goals. Happy buyers, happy sellers, always!
