If you’re looking for a home with a soul – a home with character, surrounded by nature, in a friendly neighbourhood – this property, high on the hill in Mitchelton, is the one you’ve been waiting for.
One of the first homes on Glen Retreat Road, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom home has a beautiful treehouse feel thanks to its elevation, bush garden, environmental corridor across the road and large living room windows that bring the outside beauty in. Listen to the birdsong – magpies, currawongs, rainbow lorikeets, pale-headed rosellas and king parrots – as you cradle your morning cup of tea or coffee and enjoy the treetop views.
But this character home offers more than just history, a beautiful elevated outlook and friendly neighbourhood.
Just 20 minutes to the city, a 10 minute walk cafes and the train station, you can tap into all the convenience of living close to the city but without the hustle and bustle feel of city life. With primary and high schools just down the road and kindergartens and daycares nearby, it’s ideal for a young family or a busy professional couple looking for a mini tree change without the long commute.
Despite its history, all the hard work has been already done, with the option to update the downstairs rumpus room to suit your needs – home office and gym or separate granny flat. The bright modern kitchen and bathroom, fresh paint, polished wood floors, air-conditioning throughout, and low-maintenance bush garden makes this home feel like a ‘home’.
