Worst House, Best Street? Deceased Estate.
- 3 Beds
- 1 Bath
- 1 Car
Presented here is a rare opportunity. Subject to Brisbane City Council approvals allowing removal of the existing home, your options are either to build a new home in this ideal location or retain the colonial character and renovate to your liking. A quick inspection will reveal that this cute old timber home has termite damage. Either way, you could build the home of your dreams in one of Brisbane's most family friendly pockets with a two street frontage and perfect northerly aspect over rooftops to Mt Coot-tha on the horizon. If the house can be removed you'd be left with the only buildable residential block for sale in all of Taringa. At time of writing, there are zero vacant blocks for sale in this suburb.
Bang in the middle of the Indooroopilly State School catchment, and above 2011 flood level, Broomfield is a low traffic, tree lined street typical of this sought after pocket. Family friendly says it all, with pre-school, primary and secondary schools all within a few minutes drive, and just 200m to BCC bus stop, affording direct access to the University of Queensland just 4 km to the east. There's even a corner store, popular caf and hairdresser just a 150m stroll away. All this just 5.5km from Brisbane' CBD. All other conceivable shopping, medical and commercial amenities are within a three minute drive.
THE LEGACY WAY TUNNEL
To the west lies Brisbane's $1.5 billion infrastructure upgrade, the Legacy Way Tunnel on the Western Freeway. 4.6km long and recently opened, it diverts through traffic coming in from the west of Brisbane, connecting to the existing Inner City Bypass. This has meant a very noticeable easing of local traffic levels especially in Taringa, freeing up local arterials such as Moggill Road and lesser notorious rat run' streets. The freeway is now a joy to travel on given the reduced peak-hour freeway congestion.
IS THE HOUSE ABLE TO BE REMOVED OR DEMOLISHED?
Regarding house removal, an application to Brisbane City Council will be required.
