Looking for a large residence that’s in a good location with attractive facilities? PropertyGuru has some suggestions below that you can consider:

1. Bedok Residences

Tenure: 99 years from 8th April 2010

District: 16

TOP: September 2015

Bedok Residences is ideal for those who love to shop and eat. It’s made up of eight 15-storey blocks that sit on top of Bedok Mall, a three-storey shopping centre filled with retail shops and restaurants, including a Cold Storage supermarket.

The property’s location is further enhanced by convenient access to public transport, as it’s connected to Bedok MRT station and the Bedok bus interchange.

2. d’Leedon

Tenure: 99-years leasehold

District: 10

Designed by architect Zaha Hadid, winner of the Pritzker Architecture Prize (2004), d’Leedon blends superb design and extensive facilities with a prime location.

Located at Leedon Heights, d’Leedon is a mere five-minute walk to Farrer Road MRT station. It’s also close to restaurants and shops at Holland Village and Orchard Road, top schools like Nanyang Primary School and recreational havens like the Singapore Botanic Gardens.

Since there aren’t any high-rise buildings in the surrounding area, the development also enjoys great views that extend to Bukit Timah Hill, MacRitchie Reservoir and the Orchard Road city skyline.

Another attractive point of d’Leedon is its landscape and facilities. The towers only occupy 22% of the site, which means that a vast 655,238 sq ft. of land can be used for greenery and facilities. The development’s facilities are extensive – apart from the usual facilities like swimming pools, it also has more uncommon ones like water gyms, eco-pond, reflecting pools, golf simulator rooms, screening rooms, spa pavilions and restaurants.

3. The Interlace

Tenure: 99 years from 11th February 2009

District: 4

Located at the junction of Depot Road and Alexandra Road, The Interlace is a short drive to VivoCity and Orchard Road, which offers a myriad of retail shops and restaurants. Nature buffs can also enjoy Telok Blangah Hill Park, which is just next to the condominium and the development is also connected to Mount Faber Park. Families with students can also take advantage of the Interlace’s close proximity to good schools like Anglo Chinese School, National University of Singapore and INSEAD.

Lovers of nature will be delighted by the Interlace’s design, including its private roof top gardens and communal sky gardens which enable residents to enjoy spectacular views amidst lush greenery.

The Interlace is also notable for its green design, with sustainability features like strategically placed water bodies positioned within wind corridors that enable evaporative cooling to happen along the wind paths, reducing the local air temperature and making the temperature more comfortable in the outdoor recreation spaces.

4. Victoria Park Villas

Tenure: 99-years leasehold

District: 10

Victoria Park Villas is a landed development consisting of 106 semi-detached houses and three bungalows.

It’s located in a prestigious area that’s just a 10-minute walk from Farrer Road and Tan Kah Kee MRT stations. Most of its residents will probably have cars, and the houses are just a quick drive to the city, Singapore Botanic Gardens and great retail shops and restaurants at Holland Village, Dempsey Hill and Orchard Road. Another big draw is its close proximity to upper-tier schools like Nanyang Primary School, Hwa Chong Institution and National Junior College.

The development has some interesting features, which are the brainchild of President’s Design Award winner architect Mok Wei Wei. The houses have an elevated garden view from the living room, a basement car porch and is notable for being the first landed estate with smart home features.

5. Marine Blue
