Living the life at Ellendale

Living close to schools, sporting clubs and shops - yet being nestled away from the hustle and bustle, with a beautiful bushland backdrop - may sound like the dream for many homebuyers.
The Taylors have made it a reality.
Matt and Shirley Taylor, along with their two boys Sam (15), and Jack (17), upsized from their four-bedroom, two bathroom rental property in Upper Kedron to build their dream home at Ellendale, just 12 kilometres from the Brisbane CBD.
The family came across Ellendale through word-of-mouth from friends and were instantly sold on the community's location, along with its open green spaces. 
Mr Taylor says after meeting with the sales team and a builder, he knew Ellendale was the right fit for his family. 
“It was a win-win knowing that Ellendale wasn’t far from where we were renting at the time – and for a family home it really ticked all our boxes,” he says. 
“Our sons attend Ferny Grove State High School and staying in Upper Kedron means we still have access to everything we need, while having the benefit of owning our dream home. 
“Shirley and I immediately fell in love with the tranquil, leafy surrounds and the warm community atmosphere that is already starting to take shape at Ellendale.
“We are big on sport in our family, so it’s great having access to some of the best local sporting clubs so close to home, all within a 10 kilometre radius.”
Matt and Shirley built a five-bedroom, three-bathroom home on a 405sqm sloping block and moved in at the beginning of March. 
Mr Taylor says he looks forward to enjoying his weekends at Ellendale, which provides the ideal atmosphere to entertain friends and family. 
“It’s great to have people over for barbecues and social gatherings where we can all relax and kick back after a week at work,” he says. 
“Living at Ellendale gives you the peace and quiet of a bushland setting, while still being close to major transport networks, the Brisbane CBD and surrounding infrastructure.
“It’s a rare combination to have a new community like Ellendale alongside an established area, while retaining plenty of green space and access to the outdoors.”
