57 Moolabar Street, Morningside.Former AFL player Joel Patfull plans to see as much of the world as possible and has decided to sell his Morningside home.Patfull, an ex Brisbane Lions Player who was transferred to play for GWS Giants has retired after 14 years. The first property purchase for Patfull was 57 Moolabar St, where he lived for three years when he first moved to Brisbane.“I chose to live there because it was close enough to the Gabba,” he said.“It was quiet and a really nice suburb and still affordable enough for a first homebuyer.” Now his football career is over, Patfull said he was looking to buy a place at Bondi and settle there.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home2 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor8 hours agoHe said special memories of the three-bedroom, one-bathroom home, on a 405sq m block, was when he was younger and had moved up from Adelaide to play regular AFL.“To be able to buy a house at such a young age was something that I felt really fortunate to be able to do,” he said.

Ray White New Farm selling agent Karla Lynch said the home was perfect for a first homebuyer who had intentions to renovate and add value down the track.“The outdoor entertaining area is my favourite part of the house, there is so much space and enough grass for the kids or fur babies to play on,” Ms Lynch said.She said Morningside was growing rapidly and in a location where buyers were getting value for money. The property goes to auction on March 11 at 1pm.
