5br lowset brick home on 1/2 acre in leafy Birkdale estate - hiding something very unique out the back

highlights

Perfectly located in a quiet, family friendly street in the sought after St James Estate, one of the most prestigious Bayside locations, surrounded by other quality homes on large blocks.

This fantastic family home is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the beautiful pet and child friendly level backyard that has plenty of space to add a pool if desired.

Five good sized bedrooms leading from a central living area. One has data networking ideal for a home office, and another has two large windows and excellent lighting that could easily be used as a studio or activity room.
Not so large that its hard to maintain, yet large enough a large family will not be cramped.

The rear yard hides a private orchard of mixed fruit that's all been mapped out by the vendors, say goodbye to the fruit grocer because you surely won't see him much.

Tucked amongst the trees is hidden a newly built private sanctuary in the form of an adult sized treehouse / canopy platform. From here you could easily forget the rest of the world existed, and lose hours watching the stars slowly pass by as you sip a cool beverage with those who matter most.
You won't find another house with a feature like this so make sure you come to a viewing and see it for yourself.

Only minutes to local golf course, sporting clubs and Wellington Point boat ramp and only a short drive to beaches, Cleveland, Capalaba and Carindale shopping.
Adjacent to koala habitat, parklands, and recreation reserves, lies this peaceful neighbourhood of similarly sized properties.

It provides a convenient escape from the hustle of city living. Only a few minutes to Thornside train station (approx. 40 mins to CBD), approximately a 30 minute drive (24 km) to Brisbane's CBD, 10 minutes to Manly and 45 minutes to the Gold Coast, and with added shopping hubs nearby... this home provides the best of all worlds.

This is a friendly community with an Active Neighborhood Watch and local facebook page. A number of regular events are organised in the community including Christmas activities and annual garage sale.
This is a recognised koala corridor, and this property has been registered with the Redlands Koala Habitat program.
