Chapel Hill is a suburb of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia which is located 7 kilometres (4.3 mi) west of the Brisbane CBD. It is primarily a residential suburb, consisting of mostly detached housing and is a leafy affluent area backing on to the Mt Coot-tha reserve and walking tracks. There has been a trend towards small lot developments during the last decade. Chapel Hill is currently undergoing a 'major suburban renovation', with many of the original houses (built in the 1970s to 1990s) being renovated and updated with a few being demolished to make way for newer houses, or lot divisions. Many of the original houses are architecturally distinctive designs from the late 1960s/early 1970s and typical of the Chapel Hill and Kenmore area. Currently, there are no apartment buildings in Chapel Hill. Despite it being a short commute to the Brisbane CBD, Chapel Hill is green suburb full of old eucalypts and native plants and is set on hilly bushland terrain that leads to Mount Coot-tha which is a protected reserve.
