It’s that time of year, when football fever takes over much of Queensland and New South Wales.
With the first State of Origin game done and dusted in Victoria this week and the next lined up for New South Wales on June 24, there is plenty of time for Brisbane fans to get into the ideal property when the final match of the series hits Suncorp Stadium on July 11.
Imagine living so close to the stadium you can hear the roar of the crowd, or better yet, be within walking distance.
A 10-bedroom, four bathroom home at 8 Sweetman St, Paddington, meets both of those criteria.
The home is scheduled for auction on June 30 and has a development approval for change of use to rooming accommodation.
As well as being close to the stadium it is in walking distance to restaurants and cafes.
The three-level home is listed through Darren Cosgrove of Place – Annerley.
A six-bedroom home at 44 Menzies St, Petrie Terrace, is also close to all the action.
The home is listed for offers of more than $950,000 and was fully renovated in 2016. Both levels are self-contained with separate entrances.
It is a short walking distance to Suncorp Stadium and the Roma Street transport hub.
The home is listed through Kathy McPhie of Belle Property – Toowong.
At 25 Blaxland St, Milton, a four-bedroom home is listed for sale.
The contemporary house has dual living potential and a 6 Star Green Energy certificate.
It has indoor and outdoor entertainment areas and open plan kitchen, living and dining area.
You’re sure to hear the roar of the crowd on Origin night from the large back deck.
Inside the house are spotted gum floors and high ceilings.
Downstairs would be suitable for Airbnb or renting out (which would be an extra bonus come Origin time).
The house is a short walk to Suncorp Stadium, Rainworth and Petrie Tce State schools, and public transport.
It is listed through Brendan Leggatt of Professionals Priority – Ferny Hills.
