More and more consumers are realising the value of investing in a luxurious home with a sophisticated design and first-rate amenities. Despite the current global pandemic, Singapore’s luxury market continues to grow.
As reported in the Property Market Report Q1 2022 – Powered by PropertyGuru DataSense, prime districts 2, 9 and 10 saw the highest quarter-on-quarter growth in median transaction prices in Q4 2021. 2021 also saw an uptick in landed property and Good Class Bungalow (GCB) transactions. It’s clear that the demand for properties with distinctive characteristics, as in those found in luxury and boutique properties, remains strong.
Here are five luxury and boutique property developments recognised at the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Singapore) that offer everything one could ever need in a home: ultra-modern designs, excellent facilities, and a better standard of living.
A residence with stunning architecture can turn heads. It often takes just a few seconds to leave a glowing first impression, and a property like Klimt Cairnhill (Winner, Best Ultra Luxury Condo Architectural Design; Highly Commended, Best Ultra Luxury Condo Development) by Low Keng Huat (S) Limited does just that with its breathtaking architecture, elegant units, and carefully planned communal spaces.
The residential tower’s imposing golden curvilinear aluminium façade along tranquil Cairnhill Road will be hard to miss. The sheen of its golden façade even extends to its classically designed interiors, which feature 1912 Anglo-Malay bungalow architecture.
The property’s awe-inspiring architecture, rich heritage, multifunctional clubhouse, and other amenities make it an unmissable option for those looking for a highly sought-after address in Central Singapore. Those who are keen to buy and sell should have no problem getting the attention of potential buyers.
Van Holland (Winner, Best Luxury Boutique Condo Development; Best Boutique Condo Architectural Design) is close to the chic and charming Holland Village, and is a superb choice for consumers looking for a residence that offers privacy, opulence, and well-thought-out living spaces.
What makes this project by Koh Brothers Development Pte Ltd stand out amid Holland Road are its full-height glass façade, two-storey waterfall drop-off feature, and meticulously landscaped features. But inside the bespoke residential units of this prime residential block is where it gets really interesting. Units are built to exacting standards and are decked and styled with unmistakably elegant touches, such as a Swarovski Crystal encrusted sanitaryware and natural white marble handpicked from Mount Altissimo, Italy.
Boutique projects easily stand out from the crowd, which make them appealing to prospective buyers and tenants alike.
A property like Amcorp Global Limited and TG Development Pte Ltd’s joint development 35 Gilstead (Highly Commended, Best Luxury Boutique Condo Development) is a great example. The resort-style residence, located in the heart of the city and along the iconic Orchard Road belt, offers attractive residential provisions that any resident will want to have, including spaces for entertaining guests, state-of-the-art facilities, and utmost privacy.
A property like 35 Gilstead is an especially good investment for those who either want to rent out their property or want to regularly splash out on resorts and hotels and wish to have their own private getaway.
Luxury and boutique residences typically come with unique features and access to luxury amenities and facilities. Hosting a traditional poolside barbecue is great, but doing it from within a fabulous residence like NYON (Highly Commended, Best Boutique Condo Architectural Design) condo takes it up a notch.
Future residents of this award-winning project by Aurum Land can host barbecue parties right next to the eye-catching mosaic pool. Its club house also functions as an extended space for gathering, while two separate play areas, the treehouse playground at level 1 and children’s play area at level 14, will keep the little ones entertained.
The residential tower is chock-full of modern amenities and units are designed to let in plenty of light and air, but what ultimately sets it apart is its uniquely designed interiors that harken to traditional Peranakan elements. Those seeking a green residence will be delighted to know that NYON is built using sustainable construction practices, that is, via the extensive use of products that are certified environment-friendly
Ornate, unique, and meticulous design are some things home buyers and/or investors of luxury property may be looking for. Likewise, impressive architecture and outstanding features can significantly raise a home’s resale value.
Cairnhill 16 certainly boasts these qualities. TSKY Cairnhill Pte. Ltd’s award-winning development project (Winner, Best Luxury Condo Interior Design; Highly Commended, Best Boutique Condo Architectural Design, Best Boutique Condo Interior Design, Best Luxury Condo Architectural Design) is simply beautiful.
The 39 apartments in this condo development will especially appeal to those who want homes with smart, functional use of space, generous outdoor views, and well designed interiors. Best of all, there is a private lift access for all units. With Cairnhill 16, you can elevate your standard of living and have your stress melt away — you can’t put a price on that, can you?
