Location, Space, Facilities And Exclusivity—The Whitley Residences Ticks All The Boxes. Homebuyers looking to purchase landed homes are usually drawn to the idea of having more space and privacy; especially in land-scarce Singapore where buildings are built very close to one another.
That said, the drawback of landed living is the lack of an array of facilities such as swimming pools, tennis courts, gyms, well-maintained gardens and 24-hour security.
However, if you want to enjoy the best of both worlds—the space and exclusivity that come with owning a landed property, as well as the security and facilities offered in a condominium development, The Whitley Residences by Hoi Hup Realty is possibly the closest you will get.
Conveniently located along Whitley Road in district 11 amongst an enclave of landed properties, the freehold development comprises 61 units—three strata terraces spanning 4,801 to 6,620 sq ft., and 58 strata semi-detached houses spanning 5,199 to 7,104 sq ft.—all set within a private and gated enclave, protected by security.
At first glance, The Whitley Residences impresses with its modern and striking architecture. Further in, the development dotted with an abundance of lush greens and soothing waterscapes offers a tranquil and serene atmosphere. It’s the perfect retreat for city dwellers who yearn for privacy and tranquility, yet do not wish to compromise on convenience.
Thanks to its city-fringe location and being easily accessible—the development is located a short four-minute walk to Mount Pleasant MRT station (Thomson-East Coast Line) and just a 12-minute walk from Novena MRT station.
Getting to the other parts of the island will be a breeze. For those who drive, major expressways such as CTE, PIE and main arterial roads like Thomson Road and Whitley Road are also conveniently connected to The Whitley Residences.
For daily necessities and shopping needs, residents can head to Zhongshan Mall, Square 2 and Balestier Shopping Mall, which are situated within proximity.
Families with school-going children can consider enrolling their young ones into nearby reputable schools such as Balestier Hill Primary School, Anglo-Chinese Primary School, CHIJ Primary School, and SJI International School.v
Equal attention has been paid to the interiors as well— All units are outfitted with high quality materials such as natural marble, and premium appliances from brands such as SMEG, Bosch and Kohler. The houses also come with a fully equipped kitchen with a dishwasher, wine chiller and a two-door fridge. In the yard, sits the washer/dryer as well as the centralized vacuum system.
To cater to multi-generational families, the developer has gone the extra mile to install an elevator in every unit.
Beyond all the premium appliances and finishes, buyers can be assured that they are paying for a high-quality house as it is developed by a reputable company—Hoi Hup Realty Pte Ltd—one of Singapore’s most established property developers.
Established since 1983, the local developer has since completed over 900 quality homes, and some of their sell-out projects include The Ford @ Holland, Suites @ Cairnhill, and Waterford Residence.
Unlike living in other landed properties which do not offer any facilities, residents of The Whitley Residences are spoilt for choice with a two-storey clubhouse equipped with a multi-purpose room, a gymnasium and outdoor fitness area, and a steam room. Other notable facilities include swimming pools with poolside garden deck, spa with timber deck and a children’s playground.
Whether purchasing for investment or residential living, securing a unit at The Whitley Residences will make a great choice, as experts say that its location within the Whitley Road area assures owners that the property can weather the ups and downs of the property market.
Thoughtful design, state of-the-art facilities, convenient amenities, luxurious comfort, coupled with the development’s central location makes The Whitley Residences an ideal choice for both new homeowners and discerning investors.
