Ashgrove, Queensland 4060

The Types of property in Ashgrove

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. A few boutique apartment blocks have popped up over the past few years – but the majority of Ashgrove locals tend to live in detached houses. 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.

Despite its cosy neighbourhood feel, Ashgrove is only 4kms
from the City, making it convenient without living in the cityscape.

There are a number of schools and sporting clubs in Ashgrove, so it’s a popular place for families to make
a home.
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.
