Bald Hills (Post Code 4036)
Touted as “an easy place to live”, Bald Hills with all its conveniences, sits 18 kms north of Brisbane CBD. Of the population of 6502 (2016 census), 23.7% of whom live in rental accommodation, many hail and praise the many benefits of this hidden gem in SE Qld.
A lot to love about property here…
Wide streets, ‘old country town’ feel, proximity to the Bay, good schools and great child care options plus abundant shopping centres, breezy afternoons courtesy of the Pine River that forms its northern border, fantastic public transport service, the awesome Neighbourhood watch-group…
The Position One Property Management team love their job here, as our tenants who cleverly snap up available properties for rent get to enjoy this enviable lifestyle.
Central and homey, abundant green and open spaces, easy access to the surrounding north-side suburbs including Brisbane Airport – the list goes on! The main road leading to and running through the north-side suburbs that is Gympie Road, becomes the Gympie Arterial Road at the neighbouring suburb of Carseldine.
Property convenient for intrastate travel…
Gympie Arterial runs northerly on and terminates at the Gateway Motorway (which leads south toward the airport and Pacific Motorway/Gold Coast). From then on it is now The Bruce Highway. It’s not hard to see how convenient it is to own property here. The Bruce Highway takes you onward north again, not only to the Sunshine Coast an hours drive away, but all the way to coastal Cairns – an almost 20 hour drive away.
For a suburb so close to the city, it is felt property in Bald Hills is undervalued and priced well under the Brisbane median.
Good sized blocks of land, over 800 m2, are still available. So too a quality brick and tile home on an adequate-sized block of land.
The median average rent per week for property here is $395 (2016 Census) and the average buying price of a home is $460,000 (2016 Census).
