Clayfield Real Estate
Nestled between the Brisbane CBD and several other charming North side suburbs, Clayfield is blessed with a variety of schools, churches, parks and public transport options. Some of Brisbane’s most innovative housing designs appear in Clayfield, making it so much more than just another suburb.
Clayfield was named for the brickworks industry that once fueled the inner-north Brisbane housing boom. This quiet suburb has excellent public transport, with both buses and the Clayfield and Eagle Junction train stations to help residents get around.
Several beautiful heritage listings populate Clayfield. Lyndhurst and Turrawan, both on London Road, were both designed by prolific and innovative architect Robin Dods. Stanley Hall is a richly ornamented former residence located at the heart of St Rita’s College. These and other heritage listings in Clayfield gained their status both for their rich history and enduring aesthetic appeal.
