In particular, the focus of The Princeton is on engaging a fluid indoor-outdoor lifestyle. From the spacious open plan living areas and selected bedrooms, each residence leads out through floor to ceiling windows onto private terraces or courtyards. These spacious outdoor areas are perfect for entertaining, outdoor dining and relaxing. No afterthought, this indoor-outdoor connection brings a certain harmony to The Princeton.

Elegant kitchens feature granite surfaces, European ILVE stainless steel appliances and gas stovetop, with Liebherr fridges and plenty of stylish full-height cabinetry. Designer pendant lighting completes these spaces perfectly. Entertaining friends or preparing a family meal, these kitchens have all the features and style you’ll love showing off.


Bathrooms are equally well thought out, with granite vanity top, mirrored cabinetry, porcelain floor tiling, feature lighting and contemporary fixtures, all combining to lend a calming tone. Bedrooms are tranquil and feature soft wool carpeting underfoot and plenty of mirrored closet space to keep everything clutter-free.

Surrounded as it is by leafy avenues, The Princeton delivers even more greenery with lush landscaping courtesy of landscape architect, John Patrick. A range of semi-mature trees, shrubs and climbers border the building, along with generous lawns and feature paving at the entrance.
