MULTIPLE OFFERS MADE AT FIRST OPEN HOME!
In a quiet suburban street lies this low-set, completely renovated brick property. The residence enjoys a family-sized, flat, fully usable garden and is located one minute away from the local shopping centre. It is also walking distance to the Nashville State School, a Childcare Centre and a medical centre. Whilst being thoroughly renovated, it still retains its charm and is perfect for families or suitable for an elderly couple as it has minimal steps.
Freshly painted throughout, the front of the home offers a tiled verandah for gentle evenings spent watching the world go by. It then opens up on the inside to the living/dining area with its stunning hardwood polished floors lit by Halogen downlights. The dining area leads out seamlessly through the double doors to the welcome outdoor entertaining area which faces north and gives a handy viewing of the substantial lawn where playful youngsters can run freely or where the avid gardener will be well satisfied.
The kitchen lies off the dining room and contains stainless steel equipment including a Bellini four-burner stove top, Bellini electric oven, Bellini rangehood and double sink. It, too, is lit by Halogen downlights and is sheltered from the sun by a retractable awning. The kitchen offers plenty of storage and a large pull-out pantry.
Further down the hallway lie the three bedrooms all with polished floors. The master is a king size and, like the others, has both aluminium and shutter style windows. Added to this is plenty of linen cupboard space, a family bathroom that is completely contemporary and a separate toilet. The large laundry lies within the garage, which is a single remote lock-up facility.
Outside on the back lawn sits a 10′ x 10′ garden shed so useful for tools, equipment and a place to ‘build’ things for the budding DIY person in your household. The wide flat lawn is perfect for children and pets and the adults can view them through the kitchen windows or double doors from the dining room.
Sunwell Street is the ideal gem of a place for entry level buyers. Rarely will you find such a well renovated residence in such a pleasant location. There is nothing more to do than move in and enjoy.
The suburb of Brighton lies 25 kilometres north of Brisbane on a peninsular that juts into Bramble Bay and lies next to Sandgate. Bordered on one side by the well-known esplanade, Brighton enjoys the bracing air of the seaside and, given its location next to Sandgate, boasts excellent transport links to the city. The beach also lies only 5 minutes away.
Brighton is predominantly a suburb of residential houses and offers a plethora of educational centres: Nashville State School is just around the corner, but there is also Brighton State School and St. Kieran’s Primary School, which provides a private education from Prep to Year 7 and has introduced the Chatting Children’s Program to maximize children’s communication abilities. The northside Autistic Children’s Therapy Centre is also located in Brighton for differently-abled learners. And for secondary learners, there is Bracken Ridge State High School in nearby Bracken Ridge, which promotes an inclusive and engaging curriculum.
Brighton is known for its green spaces: much of its land area is occupied by Peace Park, the Deagon Wetlands and the Third Lagoon Reserve, which straddle Bracken Ridge Road and are centred around a pool of water that rises and falls according to the seasons. It also has a magnificent wooded wetland protected by the local government. Finally, the esplanade following the coastline between the Houghton Highway and Sandgate offers excellent tracks for dog-walkers, joggers and cyclists for all those who enjoy westerly breezes, coastal outlooks and pastoral exercise.
Transport links are excellent with the nearby Sandgate train station offering 236 parking spots for an easy park-n-ride trip to the city taking only 30 minutes. Alternatively, you can catch the 310 bus from the local Nashville State School which goes directly to Sandgate station in 7 minutes. There is also a bus around the local area called The Wiz that picks you up from your doorstep and takes you to Sandgate Town Hall, which offers many seniors’ activities.
As well as the local shopping centre around the corner from Sunwell Street, which includes a medical centre, convenience store, post office and hair studio, the larger centre of Bracken Ridge Plaza provides a more diverse retail experience including a wide variety of shops, such as Coles, Prices Plus, Luxury Nails and many others.
Without doubt, Brighton is one of Brisbane’s undiscovered treasures; its seaside location and green credentials make it a treasure to live in and explore. With its access to top shops, plenty of schools and swift transport links, whichever way you look at it Brighton beckons.
