“Play me a song about Sonata on Shakespeare” – corny, we know, but we just had to say it. The name of this project is that different and one would have to say unique. Sonata on Shakespeare sits amongst a group of residential developments in the leafy suburb of Coorparoo. Located on Shakespeare Street, Sonata is set back from all the hustle and bustle of Old Cleveland Road and is a genuinely quiet location.

  • One, two and three bedroom apartments
  • Large floorplans
  • Coorparoo, inner south Brisbane location
  • 32 different floorplan types
  • City views from some apartments
  • Quiet location

The Project

With larger apartments and a quiet location in a well established suburb, we think Sonata on Shakespeare may have primarily appealed to owner occupiers.

Although a quiet location, Sonata has easy access to the City, Woolloongabba, Fortitude Valley and the Pacific Motorway via Old Cleveland Road which is only a block away.

The Developer wanted to sell to the purchasers the fantastic city views with the renders created prior to construction, and we would agree that the top levels should get generally unimpeded views. Perhaps you are a purchaser or tenant now living at Sonata? We would love a verification photo of this!

There were 32 unique floor plans that buyers had to choose from when the project was initially built. We believe that they were designed with owner-occupiers in mind.

The apartments have ducted air conditioning and ceiling fans in the living area and all bedrooms.

Prices for Sonata at the time of construction started from $379,000 for a two-bedroom apartment and go up to $643,500 for a three-bedroom apartment.

The 14,000 hectares of parklands (including 7,500 hectares of bushland) is perfect for hiking and picnics and is a great place to get your daily exercise. There are also football and cricket fields.
