The home of the beloved Bluey cartoon family has just gone out to market and the delightful three-bed Queenslander could fetch more than $1m.

Property website Domain revealed the listing for the inner-city Brisbane home on Monday, boasting of its “mid-century design aesthetics”.

“A quaint, animated family home nestled in an undisclosed Brisbane location that could be in Red Hill or The Gap (we’ll never tell), with mid-century design aesthetics offset by whimsical touches,” the listing states.

“The quintessential Queenslander, radiating heritage charm, complete with upwards of 100 hidden small long dogs to be found.”

The property is the home of Aussie star Bluey, who lives there with her dad Bandit, mum Chilli and sister Bingo.

The three-bed, four-bathroom home has “lovely period floorboards and mysterious hallways that don’t logically seem to join spaces together but always feel cohesive and purposeful,” the listing states.

It also sits on a hill with views of Mount Coot-Tha.

According to Domain, the median price for a three-bed in Red Hill is $1.29m, while the median price for a three-bed in The Gap goes for $928,000.

“The kitchen is flush with a cozy colour palette while featuring silky oak work tops that are perfect for most culinary feasts (duck cakes excluded) and revered by fancy French chefs,” the listing states.

“Bi-fold doors provide an open flow to the large back deck, creating an airy and idyllic setting for birthday parties, BBQ’s and Origin nights.”

The listing comes as Bluey prepares to go on a househunting journey in episode The Sign, scheduled for ABC TV on April 14.

Creators Ludo Studio teased out the episode in a statement, saying: “Bluey’s home is where our story begins and we’re excited to share next week if it’s where our story ends. The Heelers’ home is another character that we love and care about as much as The Heelers themselves. Like everyone’s family home, it’s a place we grow up wanting to leave and grow old wanting to get back to.”

The listing has created a buzz around town and Queensland Opposition Leader David Crisafulli said the episode could spark discussions about the state’s “falling rate of home ownership”.

“It is less than two in three and I want young people like Louis and Bingo to believe in owning their own home,” he told the Sunrise program on Tuesday.

“Through a show like this you get to talk about some of the challenges in society.”

Mr Crisafulli praised Bluey as a “Queensland institution”.

“We are very, very proud of Bluey,” he said.
