But it’s not Ascot or Hamilton, it’s Wavell Heights. And it’s increasingly giving buyers a viable alternative to these blue chip burbs, reports realestate.com.au.
What this north side gem lacks in race tracks it more than makes up for with its elevation and stunning city vistas.
While its median house price sits around $700,000 buyers are prepared to pay more than six figures for a million-dollar view.
The family friendly suburb has its own public primary and secondary school and is close to popular north side private schools too.
It has great proximity to Gympie Road and Sandgate Road making it a good choice for commuters needing easy access north, south or to the airport or CBD.
And it has a few quirks and secret spots the locals enjoy. It’s a short drive, or a downhill walk, to the Nundah farmer’s markets on the weekend. And for you Kiwi expats you’ll be pleased to know you can find all your favourites, including L&P, Pinky Bars and even frozen kina (that’s sea urchin), at Route 66 convenience store on Rode Road.
