Built in 1985, this Queenslander in Corinda has its own tennis court and is going to auction on November 21.
THERE’S Wimbledon standard synthetic grass on the tennis court and after your gruelling five-setter, you could take the lift upstairs for a lie down.
Life at 12 Thalia Court, Corinda can be as active or relaxing as you want to make it.
For the last 20 years, it has been the privilege of Graham and Barbara Fea to call this 1080sq m property home.
But after November 21, it could be yours.

“It’s been a home that we’ve nurtured and loved,’’ Mrs Fea said.

“We thought we’d stay for 10 years and then go to the coast, but we stayed on.”
Originally from the “Woodlands” sheep, cattle and wheat property west of Goondiwindi, Mr and Mrs Fea are now moving to a unit in Sherwood to stay close to family and the community they have come to love.

“What won’t I miss?” Mrs Fea said.
“I love all of the house.
“Upstairs I love the view, we can sit on the veranda in the evening and watch the Riverfire fireworks in the distance.
New Year’s Eve fireworks and Riverfire are visible from the veranda.
“And we’ve had lots of family gatherings playing tennis.”
The layout has suited their family of five, with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a drawing room and veranda upstairs.
One of the bedrooms with views to neighbouring Jacaranda trees.
Downstairs has living areas with a fourth bedroom, bathroom and more verandas.
Outdoor entertaining beside the tennis court.
There’s a new kitchen, updated ensuite in the main bedroom, and new outdoor area from which to watch the tennis.
A new kitchen modernises this Queenslander.
A lift, put in after Mr Fea had hip surgery, also makes it easy to access both levels of the house.
Looking from the kitchen, across the living room to the lift that takes you upstairs.
“I think it’s a family home and because we’ve put a lift in, if there’s somebody a little younger than us who still wants to entertain the family as we have, it would suit them too.”
Beautifully positioned with neighbouring parkland is 12 Thalia Court, Corinda.
