Ashgrove is your quintessential Queensland suburb: convenient, homely and brimming with busy Brisbane families. With leafy green backyards, classic timber ‘Queenslander’ homes, and a cosy neighbourhood atmosphere, there’s much to love about Ashgrove.
Located just six kilometres north west of the Brisbane CBD, Ashgrove was once referred to as ‘Nappy Valley’. During the post-war period, Ashgrove was a much sought-after middle-class family suburb that was known for its affordable housing. The Ashgrove of today is still highly sought-after but a little less affordable. Now considered an affluent inner-city suburb, Ashgrove’s striking homes and proximity to the city make it one of Brisbane’s most desirable suburbs for established couples and families.
Along with rolling hills and a leafy green ambience, Ashgrove is known for its attractive ‘Ashgrovian’ style houses – a variation of the famous Queenslander built in the late 1920s. While neighbouring suburbs continue to increase development of residential apartments and other modern expansions, Ashgrove has remained a traditional ‘timber and tin’ suburb with its grand Queenslander bungalows.
Location, transport and everyday amenities are three things you can count on when living in Ashgrove. With the Brisbane CBD just six kilometres away, a host of parks and sporting grounds, numerous shopping outlets, a golf course, and cafes and restaurants on your doorstep, life’s daily conveniences are easy to come by in Ashgrove.
