A popular inner-city suburb, Highgate Hill has experienced strong growth in median house prices during the past five years.
The suburb has easy access to the city via the William Jolly Bridge, the Southeast Freeway and the Goodwill Pedestrian Bridge and is in a commanding position with easy access to all major amenities and retail shopping.
Due to its close proximity to the city, and like many similarly located suburbs in Brisbane, Highgate Hill has experienced a strong level of gentrification of its streets and homes.
Renovation activity has been strong, with many older Queenslander-style houses being brought back to mint condition.
The suburb also has many new houses and units; overall it has a good mix of dwelling types.
Being close to the West End cafe and restaurant precinct, and indeed South Bank and the CBD, Highgate Hill has become one of the most popular lifestyle suburbs in Brisbane.
