Feeling the need to live closer to nature with some genuine distance from the neighbours, but still need a convenient location close to all amenities just 5km from Brisbane's CBD? Look no further. 24 Crag Road is actually one of Taringa's most elevated properties and sits high amongst the trees on 814m of land with an easterly aspect perfect to catch prevailing breezes.
This delightful two level family home has been meticulously maintained and comes complete with some notable extras including a 3KW Solar power system, all stainless kitchen appliances included, twin rainwater tanks and tons of lockable dry storage.

Upstairs is a split level layout including 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and a separate toilet, along with kitchen and dining/lounge opening to an inviting covered balcony great for entertaining, relaxing or from here you may hand feed the parrots that visit daily. The many windows capitalise upon the leafy surrounds, especially in the master bedroom, with a full height glass window wall to let the outside in. The master has a walk-in robe and there's a built-in cupboard in one bedroom.
The downstairs space including laundry is very flexible to fit your needs. With above legal height ceiling and its own bathroom, choose between a 4th bedroom teen retreat/granny flat, or even a rumpus/hobby room or home office given the private access to exterior.
Twin remote garage doors ensure secure parking. This space has good natural light and there's ample space for DIY activities, extra shelving and storage.
The freeform pool is where it needs to be, close to the kitchen and main living area and there's a handy lockable pool/garden shed that hides the saltwater filter. Just like inside, the fully fenced garden and grounds garden have been a labour of love for the owners with many native and exotic varieties just waiting to bloom.
You're in the Indooroopilly State School catchment with preschool, primary and secondary schools all within a few minutes drive, and just a short walk to BCC bus stop, affording direct access to the University of Queensland just 4 km to the east. The recently refurbished Indooroopilly Shopping Centre is just a few minutes by car. All other conceivable shopping, medical and commercial amenities are within an easy few minutes drive. And all this is just 5.5km from Brisbane's CBD. And for small children it's a 2 minute stroll to the new BCC playground with climbing gym, slippery slide etc. This space is also the entry/exit point for the bike path to Brisbane CBD
Immediately 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. Freeway travel to the City is now a joy given the reduced peak-hour congestion.
