A pair of neighbours from Doolandella have decided to team up to sell their acreage properties to interested developers, amidst the housing boom in Forest Lake and its surrounding suburbs. 

Wally Wrona and Nora Cerneaz, the homeowners of 53 and 55 Crossacres Street, have agreed to list their land on the market together, offering more than 20,000 square metres of flood-free space primed for housing or other future developments.

After 30 years of living next to each other, Mr Wrona and Ms Cerneaz believe it’s time to pack up as the surroundings around them continue to change. 

Ms Cerneaz said she doesn’t want to stay and witness more tearing down. Mr Wrona, on the other hand, understands that their combined lands could be valuable to a community as it’s near all the conveniences of a burgeoning residential hub.

In the last few years, 21 new houses were built on the hectare block next to Mr Wrona’s property. He said that both his land and Ms Cerneaz’s site will really help with the volume housing developers are looking for.
