Characterised by low set chamferboard houses with traditional Australian backyards Mansfield is 10 km south-east of the Brisbane CBD.
The majority of the dwellings, constructed in the 1940s, 50s and 60s, are made of traditional weatherboard and chamferboard materials. Renovation of these older homes will inevitably increase the median sales price of property in the suburb.
The new dedicated BCC Busway provides new direct access to the CBD making the suburb a more convenient location for City workers to live in.
The suburb is positioned between Newnham Road and the Broadwater Road. Considering its close proximity to a variety of facilities the suburb is proving popular with growing families.
Excellent public transport and access to schools, shops and entertainment facilities are Mansfield’s key attractions.
Educational facilities offered to local residents include the Mansfield Primary and Mansfield High School as well as the Adventist College (junior and senior), St Catherine’s Catholic Primary, and the Wishart Primary School in neighbouring Wishart. Residents are also close to Griffith University and Moreton and Mt Gravatt East TAFE Institutions.
Local shops are complemented by major retailers located at Garden City Shopping Centre and Carindale Shopping Centre (approximately 15 minutes).
Other local attractions include the Cresthaven Park and Yandina Picnic Ground, as well as the bikeway that runs through them.
