Located in the desirable suburb of Paddington comes this modern family home combining traditional cottage features with contemporary, free-flowing design.

The two-storey 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom, 1-car parking home sees an open plan living design on the first level. It’s here that the living, dining and kitchen area opens out – through bi-fold doors – to a large deck that is ideal for entertaining.

The opening of the bi-fold doors allows for streams of light, giving the home an airy presentation. Once outside, one finds the pool and beautifully landscaped gardens.

Timber, in the form of panelled walls and warm-toned flooring, dominates the aesthetic of the home, and helps keep some of its cottage charm. The use of timber is showcased heavily throughout the major living zones.

Other traditional features, such as the French doors and Venetian shutters all help the home retain some of its period look.

Upstairs sees a large master suite with lush outlook, views over Paddington and a large en-suite. An additional bedroom on the upper level is perfect for a nursery or study.

A further two bedrooms are found on the lower-level.

Paddington is a highly desirable Brisbane locale, with the home nearby to Rosalie Village, Paddington Woolworth’s, University of Queensland, Suncorp Stadium and the CBD via public transport.

The listing is headed to auction on June 5 and is managed by Glynis Austin (+61 403 333 013) of Glynis Austin Properties. Glynisaustin.com

How much income is required to service a mortgage? It depends on where you live

New research suggests spending 40 percent of household income on loan repayments is the new normal

Requiring more than 30 percent of household income to service a home loan has long been considered the benchmark for ‘housing stress’. Yet research shows it is becoming the new normal. The 2024 ANZ CoreLogic Housing Affordability Report reveals home loans on only 17 percent of homes are ‘serviceable’ if serviceability is limited to 30 percent of the median national household income.

Based on 40 percent of household income, just 37 percent of properties would be serviceable on a mortgage covering 80 percent of the purchase price. ANZ CoreLogic suggest 40 may be the new 30 when it comes to home loan serviceability. “Looking ahead, there is little prospect for the mortgage serviceability indicator to move back into the 30 percent range any time soon,” says the report.

“This is because the cash rate is not expected to be cut until late 2024, and home values have continued to rise, even amid relatively high interest rate settings.” ANZ CoreLogic estimate that home loan rates would have to fall to about 4.7 percent to bring serviceability under 40 percent.

CoreLogic has broken down the actual household income required to service a home loan on a 6.27 percent interest rate for an 80 percent loan based on current median house and unit values in each capital city. As expected, affordability is worst in the most expensive property market, Sydney.
