Ashmore is located about nine kilometres from Surfers Paradise and has become one of the most diverse residential suburbs of the Gold Coast, offering everything from acreage homes to villas.
Ashmore’s central location, between Southport and Benowa, offers local residents quick and easy access to the Gold Coast’s beaches, the CBD, the Pacific Motorway and the rail link. A feature of the area is its undulating hills that allow some of the homes good views to Surfers; the hinterland; and even Royal Pines Golf Course. The suburb boasts tree-lined streets, a variety of architecture, proximity to shopping centres and schools, and a diversity of lifestyles.
Ashmore was developed in the early ’70s and ’80s to meet the demand for traditional quarter acre residential homes of that era. Since then Ashmore has come to offer acreage homes, quarter acre homes, zero lot line homes, villas, townhouses as well as deluxe resort style housing at The Royal Pines Estate. The most prominent lifestyle in the area is that of the family, with seven schools located in the vicinity. Among them are Ashmore and Bellevue Park State Primary, Trinity Lutheran Primary, Keebra State High and Aquinas Catholic College. The family orientated lifestyle is balanced with a solid retiree population.
There are three retirement/aged care facilities in the area including: the Ashmore Lodge, Domain Retirement Country Club and Amity Gardens. Adding to Ashmore’s attraction is its proximity to Ashmore Plaza and the Ashmore City Shopping Complex. Centrally located, it is a five-minute drive to Australia Fair Shopping Centre and the Centro Southport shopping complex.
Over the years, Ashmore has been a solid performer in terms of price growth and popularity. This trend is expected to be further strengthened by the continued interstate migration of families from the Southern States who are looking for a more affordable lifestyle, which Ashmore can offer. For these reasons, this suburb has long been popular with investors, giving it a good supply of rental property.
