These areas are important as they host the times where people come together. Place Graceville has put together 5 memorable entertainment areas from properties we have listed in 2018.

The Graceville property was sold by Pete May and Brad Robson early in 2018, to happy owners who now enjoy the river views from their unique balcony.

4. 139 Kamala Dr, Pullenvale

With this property sitting on four hectares of land, there is no shortage of space to entertain. However, the main feature of the home is the huge pool and patio at the rear, which would be able to comfortably host over 100 people.

5. 136 Paperbark Circuit, Moggill
