Why Cannon Hill?
Cannon Hill is a well-established middle-ring suburb located between 5 and 7 radial kilometres east of the Brisbane CBD. Cannon Hill is very well positioned adjacent to the motorway, which offers residents quick access to Brisbane’s north side, the Sunshine Coast and also southbound to the Gold Coast. Further to this, Cannon Hill is also conveniently positioned on the train-line where you can catch the train to the Brisbane CBD in around 25 minutes.
Cannon Hill has a really nice mix of home styles, from charming pre-war character Queenslander homes to smaller post-war timber homes built in the 50’s and 60’s, as well as a nice mix of newer more modern homes scattered throughout as the area has gentrified rapidly over the past 10 or more years. The suburb also has a new estate built on the crest of Minnippi Parklands (ironically named the Minnippi Estate), with approximately 125 brand new higher end homes attracting younger families looking for a strong community surrounded by parklands and bushland.
Further adding to its appeal, Cannon Hill has no shortage of amenities within, including a medium sized shopping centre on Wynnum Road, Bunnings as well as multiple take-away restaurant options and cafes. Carindale Westfield shopping centre is also within a 4km drive. The suburb is always in constant demand and has had long term consistent performance.
Cannon Hill offers younger families and couples the chance to buy into a fantastic suburb at a more competitive price point than its surrounding big sister suburbs such as Camp Hill, Norman Park and Coorparoo.
Overall, Cannon Hill is a very popular suburb for families and young couples alike, and if you are considering buying here, using a specialist Cannon Hill buyers agent will be greatly beneficial in helping you navigate your way into the suburb.
Cannon Hill is situated within a 20 minute drive of the four major hospitals (Princess Alexandra, Mater, Greenslopes Private, St Vincent’s) south of the river which makes it a popular area for medical professionals to reside.
