"Something for everyone"

I love living here - we discovered this little part of Calamvale over 5 years ago and have lived here ever since.
What a great neighbourhood.
40 minute drive to Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast.
Convenient to Logan Mwy and Gateway Mwy.
Cul de Sac living with easement access to buses on Beaudesert Road.
Homes in this street only around 15 years old.
(Adjoining suburbs include the much more expensive Stretton and Sunnybank Hills and yet I personally think that Calamvale is actually much nicer than these 2 suburbs)
Roads this side of Calamvale are wider compared to some in the newer areas (especially those on the Algester side of Beaudesert Road or for example,those south of Kameruka/off Golden Ave).
2 minute walk to NightOwl, Hairdresser, Pizza, Restaurants, Newsagent, Medical Centre and Pharmacy.
5 minute walk to Calamvale Comm College which caters from Yr 1 to Yr 12.
5 minute walk to Calamvale Shopping Centre (yes we have a couple of Local Shopping Choices)
12 min walk to Sunnybank Hills Shopping Town and the Calamvale Central Shopping Centre as well as the Calamvale Hotel.
5 min drive to Algester Bowls Club and Algester Gym.
10 min. busride to Browns Plains Shopping precinct (Buses every 40 minutes).
40 min. busride to Brisbane CBD.
Safe..we even have our own Local Police Station in Kameruka St
Quiet neighbourhood popular with families and professionals.
This suburb has not hit the radar of the real estate and no, we are not thinking of selling any time soon.
But when it is discovered just how central, safe and affordable Calamvale is at present, I predict that prices in this suburb will soar.
Until then, shhhhhhhh...it is still our best kept secret.
