Downsize with zero fuss: Brisbane houses under $600,000
If you’re tired of taking care of a large property and would prefer something a little more low-maintenance, it might be time to downsize.
That doesn’t necessarily mean, however, giving up space and privacy by moving into an apartment complex.
These five newly-built or newly-renovated properties offer all the perks of a house without the hassle.
No more mowing the lawn all weekend or tidying up three messy bedrooms: just move in, unpack and chill out.

A newly renovated low-set home, this property offers a little more space for those with a green thumb or a knack for entertaining.
Set on 607 square metres, it offers plenty of privacy as well as a generous garden and landscaped greenery, best enjoyed with a glass of wine in the alfresco living area.
Agent Leighton Jones said the neighbouring Mount Cootha forest lent the home a sense of country living, just 20 minutes out of the city.
“It’s a cool block. It opens up and looks out to all the trees and Mount Cootha, but it’s also been recessed back from Moggill Road, so you don’t get any road noise,” he said.
“The whole property has been redeveloped internally and everything is based on one level with storage and a yard down the bottom of it, so for retirees, investors or even for professional young couples, it’s a beautiful place you can walk straight into.
“Properties like this are getting harder to find, especially in the Kenmore area – a lot of the properties here were built in the late 60s, early 70s, and they all require quite a bit of work, whereas this one has absolutely everything done and to a high level.”
