Located in the northern suburbs of Brisbane, Bridgeman Downs has made its mark in the housing industry thanks to its large blocks of land and acreage properties. Along with space, the area boasts a lot of native vegetation, a throwback to its use as a cattle grazing area in earlier years.
These days, the suburb is home to professionals, retirees, and families with kids taking advantage of the wide, open spaces. It services its residents well, offering good bus routes to Brisbane CBD as well as access to Carseldine railway station, which is a mere five minutes away. Thanks to the Bruce Highway, it offers a smooth ride out of Brisbane to the Sunshine Coast. Bridgeman Downs is also close to a number of shopping centres, including Westfield Chermside, Aspley Hypermarket, McDowell Village, Brookside and Stafford City.
For prospective buyers, there are a few different types of properties for sale in Bridgeman Downs. Acreage properties line Bridgeman Road, and many generous blocks and estates along Beckett Street and Albany Creek Memorial Park. Since the area was mostly developed in the 1990s, the homes are relatively modern.
There are various public and private schools within a one-kilometre radius of the suburbs centre. Along with various smaller medical centres, the Bridgeman Family Practice is located in the suburb itself, while the Prince Charles Hospital is 10 minutes away.
