Everyone here is very friendly and the community seems quite tight-knit.”“Every day I walk my dog. I feel safe here and I’m really close to the city and my work. I think I will be here for a long time.”The Cairns State High School employee said she would “highly recommend” Mt Sheridan to other budding first homeowners looking to enter the property market in a pleasant, affordable southside suburb.According to CoreLogic, the average selling price of Mt Sheridan houses was $365,000 as of February this year, representing a five-year growth of more than 10 per cent.More from newsCairns home ticks popular internet search terms3 days agoTen auction results from ‘active’ weekend in Cairns3 days agoTop-of-the-range homes at Mt Sheridan can fetch in excess of $700,000. But it is also not uncommon for attractive homes, albeit on small blocks, to be picked up for under $400,000.Real estate agent Therese Plath, of Ray White Cairns South, said the suburb’s “choice” was one of its hallmarks.“It attracts single people who don’t want to maintain a big block, but also want a yard for their pet cats or dogs,” Plath said. “But the majority of people at Mt Sheridan are families with children, and even retirees.”“It’s a beautiful area, there are many nice gardens and walkways, and shops and schools are at the residents’ fingertips,” she adds.She said the development of the popular Forest Gardens housing estate, now in its final stages, had made a “huge impact” on the Southside suburb.According to Cairns Regional Council, Mt Sheridan was named after public servant Brinsley Guise Sheridan.last_img read more
