Queen Astrid Park’s reputation as the ‘Boardwalk’ of the original Singapore Edition of Monopoly is more than mere coincidence; it mirrors the neighbourhood’s sprawling multi-family estates and some of Singapore’s biggest houses. There is a reason it is the most expensive property in the board game, commanding the highest rental revenue.

Be warned: Queen Astrid Park remains beyond the reach of most, regardless of how much of your monthly salary you invest in traditional stocks. While Queen Astrid Park may not share the same spotlight and international renown as Nassim Road — it is more understated than the infamous ‘golden child’ — albeit no less exclusive. 

Tucked away in a quieter enclave, this little-known neighbourhood hosts some of the largest landed properties in the city. Notably, a mansion spanning 31,807 square feet ranked among the top seven most expensive houses in Singapore, selling for $86,000,000 in 2021, and other estates with monthly rentals commanding upwards of $200,000.

Queen Astrid Park is not just one of the areas in Singapore with the biggest landed houses — it is a symbol of stately generational wealth. Owning property in Queen Astrid Park means holding a part of this legacy, where value continuously appreciates.

Just a stone’s throw from the lively Holland Road, a turn onto the peaceful Coronation Road West and a turn at the modern roundabout reveal some of Singapore’s biggest Good Class Bungalows (GCBs) in Queen Astrid Park. These properties host a distinctive set of ‘blue-blood’ residents, maintaining a sense of prestige without the contemporary ostentation and fanfare of Nassim Road newcomers.

Named after Astrid of Sweden, Queen of the Belgians, and now designated as a Good Class Bungalow Area (GCBA), Queen Astrid Park embodies the perfect blend of rich lineage, singular prominence, and  covetable prestige. Once the abode of former Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong, Queen Astrid Park’s storied past continues to resonate in modern times.

Whether you’re a billionaire businessman or a celebrity looking for a discreet retreat, Queen Astrid Park is the place to be where legacies are inherited … that is, if you have that money to spend.

Roads fork to cul-de-sac on these tree-lined few streets, creating a serene atmosphere far from the more touristy areas of the Botanic Gardens. Driving through its winding roads is the only way to experience this gated and tree-hidden neighbourhood without appearing out of place.

The neighbourhood is also close to some of the city’s ‘Hall of Fame’ of schools, such as the Anglo-Chinese School, Hwa Chong Institution, Singapore Chinese Girls’ School and Raffles Girls’ Primary School, making it an ideal location for ultra-wealthy families.
