Queenstown as one of the precincts in Singapore with the richest heritage. The first satellite town in 1953, it was named after Queen Elizabeth II, after her coronation in the year before and has since transformed into a bustling township.
For discerning property seekers, an impeccable sense of luxury fit for royalty with modernity and style is exactly what Margaret Ville offers. When complete by end-2021, this 309-unit project in the city fringe District 3 will serve as the stunning centrepiece of its surroundings and present the epitome of luxury living in a heritage-rich neighbourhood.
Exclusive central location
Homes in Queenstown have always been coveted for their central location. Whether you commute by car or by public transport, many of Singapore’s prime areas are within a short distance away from the neighbourhood.
Located in the heart of Queenstown, Margaret Ville offers all the perks and benefits of central living. The development is within walking distance to both Queenstown and Commonwealth MRT stations.
Queenstown is also less than 10 minutes’ drive from the vibrant precinct of Orchard Road, which puts popular lifestyle destinations like Ion Orchard, 313@Somerset and Orchard Central just minutes from your doorstep. It is also located near the Central Business District (CBD), which is about 15 minutes away by car or a brief four- to six-stop MRT commute.
In addition, Margaret Ville’s proximity to one-north, which is home to many pharmaceutical and biotech companies, could mean a ready catchment of potential tenants for owners of the Queenstown condo in time to come.
Leisure amenities are abundant too. Activities such as dining and shopping are also convenient for Queenstown’s residents, as the neighbourhood is flanked by popular precincts such as Holland Village and Dempsey Hill, with the Southern Ridges nature park and Sentosa just slightly further afield.
Distinctive cultural character
As the city’s oldest neighbourhood, Queenstown has retained much of its vibrant heritage and cultural vibes owing to the government’s efforts to rejuvenate the township.
To preserve memories of a shared past, several heritage buildings such as Princess House, the former Anchor Brewery Brewmaster’s House and the Church of the Blessed Sacrament, have been conserved. More treasured landmarks will join the list of conserved buildings as efforts to preserve its cultural nostalgia, as well as to strengthen its identity as the city’s oldest neighbourhood intensify.
Margaret Ville opens up a rare opportunity for buyers to establish roots at this charming township, which has somehow managed to stay relatively quiet despite being a mature neighbourhood with a central location. There’s low road traffic and residents can enjoy a quiet stroll or indulge in a conversation over coffee at any time of the day, especially in the vicinity of Margaret Drive where the condominium is located.
In short, Queenstown is best suited for residents who prefer an idyllic lifestyle over a bustling one, but who still desire accessibility and convenience. Going forward, the authorities will take steps for further preserve the estate’s distinctive character as an urban village with intimate streetscapes.
