SOARING cathedral ceilings and a view out to the D’Aguilar Range is enough to make anyone’s jaw drop.
Kendall Dixon and her partner Daniel Tooth bought the house at 62 Raven St, McDowall, almost five years ago and were taken by the view from the very beginning.
“There’s a beautiful view from the back deck, which was definitely one of the main factors that attracted us to the property,” Ms Dixon said.
The couple have since spent time over the years renovating.
“We’ve added a large deck on the back, and a small front deck off the master,” Ms Dixon said.
“We’ve also landscaped the backyard with some retaining walls and new flooring in the bedroom and living rooms.”
The two-level A-frame house has two bedrooms, one with a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite, upstairs, as well as a study nook.
Downstairs is a large living room with an open fireplace, a separate kitchen and dining, third bedroom, main bathroom with a separate toilet, and a separate laundry.
The property also has a single carport and is on a 641sq m block.
It is directly across from the Raven St Reserve, which is part of the Chermside Hills Reserves network.
Ms Dixon said she made use of the bush walks regularly.
“Being able to walk across the road and go to the nature reserves, it is really great when you have had a busy day and you want to de-stress,” Ms Dixon said.
The mother-of-one believed the house would suit a family.
“It would definitely suite a family with a couple of children,” she said.
“Having the reserve there is so much room to run around, ride bikes and get close to nature.
“The location is close to the city and Chermside shopping centre, and it is quite a close-knit street.”
