Historic homes dominate in top sales along Brisbane’s northern bayside.

THE median house price across Brisbane’s northern bayside suburbs has risen despite the number of house sales falling by 17 per cent last year.

The seaside suburbs of Brighton, Sandgate and Shorncliffe, follow Bramble Bay from Cabbage Tree Creek to the mouth of the North Pine River.

CoreLogic property data shows 259 houses sold in these suburbs last year, one house for every working day of the year.


The top sale was 60 Eagle Tce, Sandgate, at $1.84 million.

The five-bedroom house on a 1209sq m block was the second highest recorded house sale in Sandgate, after 150 Flinders Pde sold in 2017 for $1.9 million.

The historic “Cremorne” at 150 Flinders Pde, Sandgate was named to honour its builder John McCallum Snr who also built and ran the Cremorne Theatre at South Bank. His son, John McCallum Jnr, was a famous actor and produced the ‘Skippy’ TV series.

Brighton remains the most active suburb with 181 house sales, increasing its median house price by 6.7 per cent to $555,000.

The highest sale of the year in Brighton was 596 Flinders Pde, which sold for $1.47 million.
