"Lovely and Leafy"

I moved to Mansfield with my wife a year ago with a view to starting our family. We chose this location for its many benefits such as:

1. Excellent choice of schools (public and private) ie Mansfield State High which is highly sought after;
2. Quite leafy streets and parks with minimal through traffic;
3. Good access to public transport with buses that go direct to the city where I work or a short drive to Coorparoo train station;
4. Shopping and entertainment (in between Garden City and Carindale Westfields);
5. Ease of access to the southern hwys to the Gold Coast for weekend trips; and
6. Capital growth potential (for example it borders on to the affluent Carindale) and is within 10km of the CBD and has a high proportion of owner/occupiers so people take pride in their homes and neighbourhoods.

We love the peaceful and safe lifestyle the suburb provides and recommend it to anyone who is looking for a relaxed and comfortable way of life.
