The historic suburb of Windsor is only 4 kilometres north of the Brisbane CBD. Bounded in the south by Enoggera Creek, the district was declared a shire in 1887. This was Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee year and consequently the area took its name from the royal residence, Windsor Castle.
In an ever-changing city, Windsor has retained much of its original charm with green, tree-lined streets, many distinctive ‘Queenslander’ homes and original estates such as Rosemount, Oakwal, The Bower, Wilston House and Eildon set amongst vibrant new developments. Still servicing the local community is the grand Windsor State School, first opened in 1915.
Windsor Lifestyle, at 138 Albion Road, provides a unique opportunity to live in the center of one of Brisbane’s most sought-after inner-city suburbs. The apartments are only a short stroll to everything you could possibly need, including bus and rail transport, restaurants and cafes, shops and surrounding parklands.
The popularity of Windsor suburb is largely due to its proximity to the city, which has resulted in an increasing demand for homes in the area and, in turn, significant price growth.
Attractive to new buyers is Windsor’s access to excellent public transport. A trip into the City from Windsor train station will take residents less than 15 minutes.
Other attractions include leisure parks such as Keith Beavis Oval and the Windsor Bowling Club, private and state schools, shopping areas, restaurant precincts, and walkways running alongside Enoggera Creek. Downey Park and Ballymore are also close by in neighbouring Wilston.
