This high-set pad on the northern bay-side evokes old-school family living. Set on a flat 584-square-metre block, it offers big scope for updating and entertaining. Downstairs is being used as a multi-purpose living space but it could become a second contained residence. A double garage, fenced rear yard, water tank and garden shed are boons.

It is the private, paved rear undercover entertaining area that sets this four-bedroom low-set residence apart. It is huge; and its interior is also no minnow. There are two living rooms, a main bedroom suite with dual walk-in wardrobes, and a drive-through double garage. Moreton Bay is a block away, and the train station is the same distance in the opposite direction.
