"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 socialising in the suburb, I might be a bit biased, but Ascot really is "The Village".
