"Fantastic Area"

It is expensive place but this is a place for the Rich.I bought it just before COVID19 and got it for a bargain thats because it needs renovation.Ascot State Primary School
one of the best in Brisbane.About 10 mins to the city couple dog park.If you can't afford the area then Albion is the next best for living and investment.

""A Fantastic Place to Live""

As an Ascot resident for the past 26 years, I love our suburb. My children have grown up here attending Ascot State School and the sense of community and support are second to none. Something as simple as going for a walk in the morning or dropping in for a coffee at many of the local cafes and knowing the people who you run into, makes for a friendly, supportive atmosphere. Selling Residential Real Estate for Place Ascot for the past 15 years, and living and socializing in the suburb, I might be a bit biased, but Ascot really is "The Village".

"Best place to live"

Safe, clean and best schools. Great coffee shops (Vanilla Pod),best architecture (beautiful old homes) and fantastic people. Beautiful gardens (people really take pride). Better value than Bulimba Hawthorne, Bardon, Highgate Hill and Chelmer which are all in the same price bracket except Ascot has large blocks of land. Close to airport and Sunshine Coast just up the freeway love it, love it. Best playgrounds for the kids.

"Good surburb, but a bit expensive for what it is."

Good suburb overall. It has many different parts including hilly areas with lovely views and flat leafy areas. Nice neighbourhood but people like high fences. Nice schools. The traffic can be an issue with Sandgate Rd and Kingsford Smith Drive very busy in the mornings. It is expensive compared with other suburbs that offer the similar lifestyles in innercity North, West and South.

Ascot now seems good value look at auchenflower, bardon the average home there is 1.5 mil and a fair hike from the city Ascot would have to be the best suburb in brisbane.

Auchenflower a "fair hike from the city"?? Check your facts as its only 3kms from the city and a 5 min drive also a great suburb.

"Fantastic area for families best schools"

Ascot is one of the best places to live in brisbane. I have lived all over australia and ascot is up there with mosman sydney and brighton melb .It is Safe ,Great schools. The people are very friendly always smiling.Fantastic coffee shops .You don't need to leave the suburb has all amenities ,near the airport and north coast Noosa is straight up the freeway. Ascot is not a snobby suburb just the opposite .Kids can ride their bikes safely around the suburb. Large blocks of land and great architecture.5 mins from the city centre.Ascot primary school is the closet thing to a private education without the fees.

"Hamilton is an exclusive suburb of Brisbane bordering on the Brisbane River."

Bordering on the famous Doomben Race Track, Hamilton is the home of many professional people. It is 'old Brisbane'. I say that because it is 'old money' that owns the homes in this area and some of the properties are in second generation. The houses are magnificent and the blocks quite large which is always desirable.

It has developed into an upmarket caf area and because there is not too much traffic right near the cafs it is quite a popular place for people to spend an hour or two.

On the southern side of Hamilton is the Brisbane River but properties do not run along the river frontage at this point. Also near-by is the famous Breakfast Creek hotel which has been a drawcard for visitors for many, many years.

All up an exclusive place to live, only 10 mins drive into Brisbane city.

Ascot is hyped up. Racecourse Road, which was once so classy, full of life, and with its own street fair, is now a dirty strip of take-away shops and below average cafes. The stylish boutiques, cafes and restaurants have moved to James Street, leaving RR with the leftovers. Demographics have changed, as well. Overall, an unimpressive suburb still clinging to its old adage of "upmarket" place with prices to match.
