A charming hilltop riverfront estate sold the highest at $4,200,000 for this period. Located at Dewar Terrace, this was one of the last remaining grand acreage estates in Brisbane’s southwest. Spanning two acres, this property has a beautiful cottage-style mansion built in the 1940s with a modern and updated layout.

The home has several living spaces for entertaining and lifestyle amenities like a gym, spa, and a pool surrounded by a stylish garden. The house also provides easy access to St Aidan’s Anglican Girls School, the cafes and shopping district in Corinda, and the railway to the CBD. 

Unit Price Growth

The median price for unit properties in Corinda dropped by 10.11 per cent for July 2020 to June 2021. The movement of apartment property sales was at an average of 54 days on the market. Whilst there were 60 units sold during this time period, especially from the new apartment block developments near the railway precinct, the bulk of the sales were for small and more affordable two-bedroom apartments, thus pulling the unit median price at $413,500.

About Corinda

Corinda is a vibrant and green location in the southwest of Brisbane. Found some 14 kilometres away from the CBD, this tree-filled, family-friendly the neighborhood has some elevated streets, offering a beautiful view of the city. Here, families have stayed in their character homes for generations, with some homeowners deciding to sell or downsize only after two decades.

With good public transport, Corinda offers convenience for the residents who want to live in larger blocks of homes in a quiet suburb. There are plenty of good schools in the area, such as the Corinda State School or elite private institutions like St Aidan’s Anglican Girls School or St Peters Lutheran College. 

Honour Avenue is a favourite outdoor hangout for many families during their weekend recreational activities, whilst Oxley Road thrives as the retail precinct for many small business owners who are still on a first-name basis with heaps of the locals. However, in recent years, the community has had a spate of younger families coming in. 



“We love living in high side Corinda, plenty of great walking paths and a well maintained dog park. We are close to public transport and within walking distance to one of Brisbane’s most affluent schools, St Aidans. Prima Vera is great for breakfast and we look forward to future gentrification and growth of the cafe culture!”

“Offers luxury class living in high side Corinda along the river (west). Shops and restaurants are lively day and night. I recommend this suburb for those that like to escape the urban feel for a green, leafy feel yet so close to the CBD.”
