Spring Hill attracts buyers with its unique appeal benefiting from the enormous interest in inner-city living. Spring Hill sits north of the CBD bounded by Gregory Terrace, Wickham Terrace, parts of Ann Street and St Pauls Terrace, and Warry and Kennigo Streets and is one of Brisbane 's few areas that successfully combine residential living with commercial and professional activities.
Spring Hill is continuing with the makeover that started more than 10 years ago. Many of the old and dilapidated houses have been immaculately restored or new, architecturally designed homes have been built in their place. It continues to attract Brisbane 's professionals and attract strong interest from those who want the benefits of near-city living. Its very high median house price growth over the last 5 years is testament to this.
Facilities include convenience shopping, a number of hotels, bars and restaurants and the green oasis of Roma Street Parklands. Indeed, there are more than 200 places to dine out within a 1 km radius of Spring Hill.
For families, Spring Hill is home to some of Brisbane â??s leading colleges - Brisbane Grammar, Brisbane Girls Grammar and St Joseph â??s are all within easy walking distance. All Hallows and St James College are nearby in the Valley with well-regarded primary schools and pre-schools also in the neighborhood. There are a number of churches and cathedrals in the area. St Andrews and Brisbane Private Hospitals are located in Spring Hill with the Royal Brisbane and Womenâ??s Hospital nearby. University facilities are handy with the Qld University of Technology having campuses in the city and Kelvin Grove. All forms of public transport are available with the Roma Street Railway Station acting as a hub for coach and rail services with the CityCat only a short walk away.
