This highset Post War home was bricked in around 1974 and is located in a prime location on the corner of Dahlia St and Dorothea St. It sits on a generous 602 sqm block of land with frontages of approx. 17.6m (Dahlia) and 33.4m (Dorothea). The existing property is ideal to be removed, leaving an uncomplicated and level block to easily and cost effectively build a brand-new, bespoke contemporary home. Alternatively, this could also be a significant renovation project of the existing home, bearing in mind the area downstairs is less than 2.4m in height – so by Council definition are not technically “legal height” for building in approved additional bedrooms etc.

Either way this address is the perfect location almost equidistant from BOTH the CBD and the sparkling waters edge of stunning Moreton Bay and the attractive Manly & Wynnum esplanades. PLUS, it is only 2.5km to get onto the M1/Gateway Motorway for a quick trip to either the beautiful Sunshine or Gold Coast beaches.

The existing 3-bedroom home is currently rented out on a periodic tenancy for $450/week with tenants who are keen to stay on for at least another 12 months if possible. There is also plenty of built-in storage areas underneath as well as accommodation for 2 cars plus a laundry. There is also a stand-alone oversized car port out the back.

The photos show that the existing home is very original inside and would be a major renovation project. There are several rooms downstairs (as shown on the floor plan) that are not quite 2.4m in height – the council figure for the construction of approved bedrooms and living areas. HOWEVER, the floor to ceiling measurement of approx 2.2m is still a good height and these rooms have previously been used for additional family accommodation. Alternatively, it could be suitable for someone maybe running a business from home or needing significant “storage” space for a business or a hobby separate from the main house upstairs. There is also a bathroom downstairs

With such a shortage of quality inner city land available at present this property really is “Position, Position, Position” through and through. There is no doubt that 165 Dahlia Street is also going to attract a lot of interest due to the amazing range of quality schools, shops, sporting facilities and public transport options close by which include as follows:

# Only 800m to St. Oliver Plunkett Catholic Primary school
# Only 1.1km to Cannon Hill State Primary School
# Just 1.5km to CHAC (Cannon Hill Anglican College)

# Approx. 450m walk to Cannon Hill Bus Station/Terminal
# Only 900m walk to Cannon Hill train station
# Only 2.3km to the M1/Gateway Motorway junction for easy access to both the Gold Coast & the Sunshine Coast

# An easy 450m stroll to the extensive, refurbished Cannon Hill Shopping Precinct
# Only 3.2 km to the huge Westfield Shopping Centre Carindale
# Plus, an easy stroll to the Southgate Business Park including a popular restaurant/cafe hub

# Only 1.5km to the, soon to be finished, brand new 18-hole Minnippi Golf Course (Due for completion late 2022)
# Approx. 600m to the Seven Hills Bush Reserve ideal for relaxing or walking the dog
# Plus, an easy drive to the stunning Wynnum/Manly esplanade, marina, and the sparkling waterfront of Moreton Bay.
# Only 6.5km to the CBD…!

These 600 sqm blocks where the house CAN be removed are becoming much harder to find these days and are therefore highly sought after. This 602sqm block enjoys the additional flexibility that a corner block offers so there are plenty of design options here to create a spectacular property and a great lifestyle. There will also be plenty of room for the pool of your choice and you will still have a large back yard for the whole family to enjoy.

Close to a choice of excellent schools, public transport (bus & train), parks, shops, cafes/restaurants, the M1/Gateway motorway plus the trendy Manly waterfront suburbs with its weekend markets and impressive marina this property offers such a PERFECT opportunity & location for one VERY lucky buyer – so make sure to register your interest today!
