Old and new merge in semi-rural serenity
WITH a mix of older and newer houses, Bellbird Park is much sought after for those people looking for community connection and affordability.
Just 15 minutes from the CBD of Ipswich and about 30 minutes to Brisbane, Bellbird Park attracts buyers looking for a serene lifestyle, yet still close to fantastic amenities and facilities.
The established part of the suburb boasts houses on a half to one-acre blocks of land and long-time residents have enjoyed this semi-rural lifestyle for 30 to 40 years.
The newer part of Bellbird Park - Brentwood Forest Estate - was developed about eight years ago, with more stages yet to be released.
The estate is a magnet for families chasing that great Australian dream of a house with a backyard.
Lead sales and marketing consultant for Ray White Redbank Plains, Megan LeBherz said the location of Bellbird Park and its serenity drew buyers to the suburb.
"It's close proximity to the greater Springfield precinct, which is Australia's largest master-planned community, and which will one day rival Brisbane's CBD, is a real selling point," she said.
"This huge development is still only 20 percent developed, and as it expands, the price of real estate in Bellbird Park will increase as the suburb will eventually become like an inner city suburb."
"However, Bellbird Park is still affordable with new, four bedroom homes selling for about $450,000 and older renovated homes on half an acre fetch about $400,000."
"You get a lot of bang for your buck here."
There are about 3000 homes in Bellbird Park and while there are no shops within the suburb, residents do not have to travel far for their daily needs.
Ms LeBherz said there was a great community spirit at Bellbird Park and fantastic facilities for families.
She said the Tucker Family Park in the new estate always drew large crowds with a dog exercise area, playground equipment, outdoor exercise area and a 9.2m slippery slide.
"With its mix of older and newer residents, Bellbird Park is a vibrant community and a great place to live or invest in," Ms LeBherz said.
