This house at 20 Pardalote Place, Cashmere is for sale now with offers above $825,000.

BRENDAN and Kelly Smith have lived in this little pocket of suburbia surrounded by bushland for 12 years.

The elevated view from the front deck of 20 Pardalote Place, Cashmere gives the impression of being among the trees, and the koalas, birds and native bandicoots that sometimes share the backyard advocate for an unhurried lifestyle.

The 1250sq m property is being taken to market by Michael Spillane of Innov8 Property Sales Albany Creek.

“It’s like having a retreat from the busyness of life, it feels like you are miles away,” Mr Smith said.

The 1250sq m block gives plenty of room to move, and there is vehicular access to the backyard.

Opening the bi-fold doors allows the kitchen, dining and front balcony to become one large living area that overlooks the pool area.

The front balcony has a pitched roof.

“The bedrooms are tucked away with the master at the back and the other three bedrooms are in an L shape at the opposite corner of the house so there is a separation,” he said.


The block has been cut to set the two level house into the property, with an elevated backyard flowing out from a private rear balcony on the upper level.

“It’s the flow of the house that we like,” he said.

“We can be in the kitchen while the kids are in the lounge and you can see the view.

The main living area with a fireplace and ducted airconditioning.

“The front deck has the aspect over the bush and the back deck is good for winter summers.”

Downstairs has family and media rooms, a third bathroom and front-facing entertaining area overlooking the pool.

Underneath the front balcony is another relaxed space.

“Storage is huge here, the whole hallway is storage, there’s 12 sliding doors with storage behind.”

The family has added ducted airconditioning, the inground pool, and refreshed the house, and in 2015 they renovated the kitchen to include granite benchtops with waterfall edges.

The renovated kitchen also has a walk-in pantry.

“I think another family or professional couple would love it here,” he said.
