Derived from the Latin term for glorious or superb, Gloriosa is a new development that is just that.
“We also wanted a name that is tied to the city, and Gloriosa is the name of a plant that is native to Canberra,” says agent Josh Morrissey of Hive Property.
“Plus, it sounds cool.”
Designed by Turco and Associates to balance both form and function, Gloriosa delivers just 13 spacious three and four-bedroom townhouses in Dickson.
It is tucked away in a quiet cul-de-sac, among the charming, leafy streets of Dickson yet it is still on the cusp of Braddon and the city.
While every detail has been considered in the design of Gloriosa, special attention has been placed on the things that really count.
These include spacious floor plans, lock-up internal-access garages, almost three-metre high ceilings and large double-glazed windows that allow natural light to reach into almost every nook and cranny.

The kitchens boast Ariston appliances with induction cooktops and 20-millimetre stone benches, while the bathrooms are fitted with premium Phoenix tapware and full-height tiling.
Zoned reverse-cycle airconditioning allows you to heat or cool chosen areas of the home and will also help to save on utility costs.
Private courtyards at both the front and rear of the homes allow for plenty of outdoor enjoyment and even a pintsized pooch or two.
Each four-bedroom option has the main suite on the ground level, which is perfect for buyers who are hoping to avoid stairs.
Polished concrete floors also feature throughout the homes, but there is an option for timber flooring for those who prefer a more organic look and feel.
“The colour palettes selected are a mix of light and dark options with a modern overtone, but are neutral enough to suit a broad range of buyers,” Morrissey says.
“Each was chosen to remain timeless and sophisticated.”
According to Morrissey, any downsizer or general buyer would be proud to call a Gloriosa townhouse their home.
“The location is just superb,” says Morrissey.
“It is the last available new project to be situated so close to Braddon, as all other land has been developed with high-grade townhouses.”
Gloriosa is within easy walking distance to the Dickson and Braddon restaurant precincts, both of which have seen plenty of new venues open in the past few months including Midnight Bar and Assembly Bar. And let us not forget that old-favourite Knightsbridge Penthouse is moving to a swanky new home in Braddon very soon.
The development is also a quick five-minute walk to the tram stop, so a trip into the city is easier than pie (and without the parking stress).
Completion is expected to be just under a year away.
