The property presented here is a rare opportunity since it offers a range of options to a variety of buyers.
A. Build a new home in this beautiful quiet street in Taringa (subject to relevant approvals).
B. Renovate and or extend this solid post-war residence to your liking.
C. Buy and hold - the home is in very good condition with a larger floor area than is average for the era and is a solid rental prospect. With 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and a separate toilet upstairs, along with kitchen and dining opening to a wide, full-width elevated east facing verandah, great for entertaining or relaxing. There's also a large lounge opening to balcony with views to Mt Coot-tha. Downstairs is a 2 car lock-up garage, large lockable utility room in perfect condition with full width cupboards, loads of lockable dry storage, and the laundry area.
Buildable blocks are a rare commodity in Taringa and importantly, this block is not the usual steeply sloping 405m2 land area with a 10 metre frontage. If your desire is to build, you have an extra 103m2 to use (land area is 508m2), a gently sloping block, and an 18.5m frontage to the street opening up many more home design layouts.
Right in the heart of the Indooroopilly State School catchment, Murray Street is a quiet,
low traffic street with wide footpaths Family Friendly' says it all, with preschool, 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, and popular caf just a 200m stroll away, and the recently refurbished Indooroopilly Shopping Centre is just 800m. All this is just 5.5km from Brisbane' CBD. Needless to say, all other conceivable shopping, medical and commercial amenities are within an easy five minute drive.
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, 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?
The Brisbane City Council allows for the removal or demolition of homes built after 1946 (Post War). The home at 23 Murray Street was built post war (relevant approvals apply).
Do your homework early and capitalise upon this rare opportunity!
