Queensland’s hottest homes of 2017, including two in Noosa
HALF the top 10 hottest homes in Queensland this year have come out of the capital city, led by a one-year-old house that sold for $2.3m.
The five bedroom Hamptons-style house at 92 Solar Street, Coorparoo, was the hottest home in Queensland this year, according to the country's biggest property site realestate.com.au, attracting over 41,300 visits, reports realestate.com.au.
The Sunshine State had a strong showing in the national list of most viewed properties, with three making the Australian top 10.
The Coorparoo home, which ranked fifth nationally, was just over 5km from the Brisbane CBD and loaded with extras including a children's rumpus room, a private retreat for parents, a mezzanine level, chef's island kitchen, terraced outdoor entertaining spaces, a mud room, pool, and multiple living zones.
A sprawling Georgian-inspired home at 652 London Road, Chandler had the second highest views in the states this year, at more than 40,400.
The property passed in at auction over the weekend, but was still on the market for sale by private treaty.
The Hamptons' feel was also believed to behind the popularity of 7 Ashfield Street, East Brisbane, that came in third with more than 40,000 visits to the property.
None of the Brisbane homes that made the state top 10 were on the water, and all were large families homes within 10km of the CBD, with 7 Elizabeth Street, Paddington coming in fifth and 30 Long Street, Graceville - which sold for $2.32m in February - in ninth spot.
Two Noosa waterfront properties made the elite list - 29-31 Wyuna Drive, Noosaville which has gone under contract after listing for a whopping $11.9m and 17 Saltwater Avenue, Noosa Waters which was under contract for over $10.5m.
The remaining homes in the state top 10 were on the Gold Coast, including two waterfront mansions: an $11.98m-plus landmark at 16-22 Parklane Terrace, Sovereign Islands and 2585 Gracemere Circuit North, Hope Island.
Not all properties on the list of Queensland's most viewed homes this year were million dollar mansions, with a family home at 177 Simpsons Road, Elanora drawing the seventh highest views in the state. The four bedroom split-level home in the Gold Coast hinterland sold for $730,000 in July.
