Windsor is one of Brisbane’s premium suburbs, ticking all the boxes in terms of accessibility, amenities and demographics.
The suburb is 4km northeast of the CBD, and can be reached via direct train – the nearest stations are in Wilston and Bowen Hills – or bus. It’s also within easy reach of the M1 and Brisbane Airport via Kingsford Smith Drive.
There is a wide range of retail amenities, including independent groceries, delis, pharmacies, banking and a number of other shops along Lutwyche Road and Newmarket Road. Further retail stores, including national chains, an Aldi and a Coles, can also be found in the Centro shopping centre in nearby Lutwyche.
The location of the Queensland University of Technology and the Royal Brisbane Hospital in nearby Kelvin Grove and Herston provides a ready supply of employment opportunities and tenants.
Windsor’s handy location and diverse employment and education options mean the suburb is popular with a wide range of residents, including students, professionals and young families. Professionals and other white collar workers make up around a third of residents, and family incomes are more than $500pw higher than the Queensland average, according to SQM Research.
There's a good balance of owner-occupiers and city workers in the suburb, and the Windsor is still more affordable than its southern neighbours such as Bowen Hills.
A word of caution, though: the lower-lying areas to the west of the suburb were affected by the floods in January 2011, so investors are well advised to stay on the eastern side of Lutwyche road and away from Enoggera Creek when choosing a property.
