Holland Park

Located between Mount Gravatt mountain and Greenslopes, is suburban gem, Holland Park.

This well-kept secret is far enough from the city to enjoy the luxury of residential life, yet still only 10 minutes from the CBD.

Holland Park’s heritage means that it is largely made up of post-war wooden homes- some of which have been renovated into modern day dream houses. However even though the area has seen recent housing upgrades, house prices are still first house owner friendly.

The western area of Holland Park, which borders Logan road, has recently welcomed an abundance of commuter friendly hot spots, like Stomp Espresso and Switch Espresso.

Although those in transit will appreciate the location for an early coffee hit, visitors who want to stay for a meal can take advantage of residential parking while visiting Deedot café or The Rare Pear.
