Despite its cosy neighbourhood feel, Ashgrove is only four kilometres north west of the city, making it a convenient home for established professionals and families who want a little room to move (without moving too far).
Well over 150 years old, Ashgrove is a traditional Brisbane suburb: hilly, leafy and filled with character.
In the early post-war period, Ashgrove was known as the Nappy Valley – a middle-class suburb of young families seeking affordable housing, close to the CBD. It seems that very little has changed around here (although Ashgrove’s distinguished Queenslander-style homes have now become a little less affordable)
Ashgrove Local Area
There are a number of schools (State and private) and sporting clubs in Ashgrove, so it’s a popular place for families to make a home (there are over 3000 families here, with an average of two children per household).
There are a large number of parks and sporting grounds (including a golf course) here, as well as pockets of native bushland – all giving Ashgrove the green, leafy ambiance this suburb is famous for.
There is a small strip of commercial development along its main thoroughfare, Waterworks Road. Here you’ll find a number of shopping villages, tasty cafes and restaurants, as well as specialty stores (and the odd day-spa) to meet the needs well-heeled locals.
Ashgrove Real Estate Demographics
Ashgrove includes the neighbourhood of Ithaca, where there is a popular Institute of TAFE (where you can learn to weld and speak French – perhaps at the same time) and the famous Broncos leagues club (where you can always get a good counter meal).
Ashgrove is a traditional Queensland ‘timber and tin’ suburb, with generous Queenslanders, elevated post-war wooden homes and colonial cottages. Between the two World Wars, another style of housing became popular in this area: an elevated bungalow-style Queenslander with several smaller gables and a large staircase leading up to the verandah – a style which became known as The Ashgrovian.
Right from its establishment, Ashgrove has been a place for families. Today’s Ashgrovian families may be a little more well-off, but they still enjoy this suburb’s generous timber homes, leafy streets and friendly atmosphere.
