Gorgeous Georgian

Claire Chu

Friday, March 08, 2013


The borough of Islington is a secluded haven brimming with authentic Georgian charm in Inner London.

Queensland Terrace, a trio of modern towers linked by a meticulously planned communal podium, is blissfully tucked away in this tranquil location, but it remains well-connected to the city via the capital's well-established transport network.

Artistic presence of curves and tiers characterize Queensland Terrace's contemporary architecture. With 375 tastefully appointed residences upon completion, the development will offer sweeping views of the London skyline from every unit and the terrace level. This level will also have retail stores and cafes for the benefit of residents.

Occupying an enviable spot in Zone 2 with excellent transport links into Central London, the apartments are a short stroll away from Arsenal Tube station on the Piccadilly Line. Reaching the West End takes 20 minutes. Commuting to work in the City and Canary Wharf will take no more than half an hour.

Great accessibility aside, the neighboring areas of Queensland Terrace are filled with world-class shopping, dining and cultural experiences.

The nearby Highbury Village houses a slew of iconic London pubs and independent shops - from a world- famous walk-in cheese room to an award-wining butcher.

Highbury Fields spans 11 hectares of scenic open space, the largest in the borough, with well-rounded facilities to fulfill the recreational needs of locals.

Upscale retail outlets at the adjac
ent Upper Street, Islington's main shopping street, are another vital component that will elevate residents' lifestyles.

The development offers open-plan suites, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, as well as a limited collection of three-bedroom penthouses. Most of the lavish homes have a south-facing balcony or terrace that opens out to panoramic city views from the living room.

Curved walls and expansive floor- to-ceiling glass elements lend a contemporary vibe to the modern homes at Queensland Terrace.

The kitchen and bathroom are completed to an equally high standard, and have quality fittings and appliances from premier suppliers such as Grohe, Siemens and Roca.

Residents will also be able to enjoy exclusive access to a private fitness suite and 24/7 concierge services.

Prices start at 282,000 (HK$3.2 million) for a studio apartment.
