Chocolates. Flowers. A romantic candlelight dinner. When we think of ‘romantic’ things to do during Valentine’s Day, these three certainly spring into mind.
But if you want to do something different this year that doesn’t involve cheesy Valentine’s Day greeting cards or wading through throngs of crowds at restaurants, here’s something you can do that’s out of the norm: buy a new home.
You might think that buying a home may be too much of a stretch, but remember that faint heart never won fair lady.
These homes are located in some of the most romantic locales in Singapore and are on the market right now.
1. Wallich Residence
Total units: 181
What’s to love: If you have the financial biceps to flex, nothing spells luxury quite like Wallich Residence; the development is located at Singapore’s tallest tower and is designed by the architectural firm behind world-famous skyscrapers such as the Burj Khalifa in Dubai and Trump International Hotel & Tower in the United States.
And let’s just say that living in Singapore’s tallest address will offer you some of the most breathtaking sights you’ll ever witness.
Plus, you’ll also live in the same building as billionaire James Dyson, who splashed $73.8 million for Singapore’s highest, tallest and possibly most expensive penthouse.

Furthermore, the development is located in the more laid-back area of Changi and is only a 5-minute drive to Jewel Changi Airport, where you have good photo spots at Jewel Canopy Park and the Rain Vortex.
