Suburban ‘resort’ homes keep the holiday enjoyment flowing
RESORT living in the suburbs may not be such a pipe dream, with homes on the market in Brisbane right now that could make you feel like you’re on holiday all year round.
Priced from about $600,000 to upwards of $2 million and beyond, these are homes that seem designed to allow families to coexist in serenity, according to listings featured on realestate.com.au.
Heated pools, even better if run on solar power, seemed to be a popular feature, though sometimes all it took to generate a holiday-like glow in a home was having multiple living areas, including a parents-only retreat.
No home worth its salt with a holiday feel had less than two bathrooms – clearly timesharing the shower is not the done thing in suburban resort homes.
Prices of homes with holiday-like features varied from just over $2 million for a luxurious five-bedroom, three-bathroom 35 Elliott St property in Hawthorne to $1.05 million for the immaculate six-bedroom home at 56 Juniper Circuit in Stretton.
Another property with resort-like facilities that has come on the market is at 43 Union St in Clayfield – complete with six bedrooms, five bathrooms, indoor pool, tennis court and gated security.
A key feature of the property, and others that listed a resort feel, was “exceptional privacy”.
If you’re considering turning your own home into a holiday oasis, some key features to consider include installing a water feature or pool, adding living space or updating your outdoor entertainment area. Even something as tiny as a second bathroom may well help cut stress in a home – potentially helping you keep your holiday glow for a little bit longer.
