Is there a way to get the billing or shipping address in account object as a single data? Currently the address data is split across several fields like

Street Address

Is there any field called "BillingAddress" exists? Please suggest.

After v30 Sfdc introduced compound field.This is read only field which is available on Account object

A sample SOQL will be as below

SELECT Name, BillingAddress FROM Account
