This family home at 65 Victoria St, Chelmer, is for sale.Now that their three children have grown up and left home, the Todds are looking to downsize and plan to spend more time in Europe.“My wife is a photographer and our youngest son is in Europe … so what we need is more of a lock up and go, rather than a family home,” Mr Todd said.Ann-Karyn Fraser of Place Estate Agents, who is marketing the home, said she had noticed the increase in house prices in Chelmer and the continued strong interest in the suburb and the surrounding suburbs of Graceville and Sherwood.
