Watercove is the latest landmark residential enclave by acclaimed developer Bukit Sembawang Estates Limited. Located on the tip of Singapore’s Northern Region in Sembawang, the former British naval base has been transformed beyond recognition in recent years into one of the island-state’s most desirable suburban destinations.
Resort-style facilities, an abundance of green space and the much-coveted beach access make this one of the more singular residential projects to hit the Singapore property market of late. And with 100% of the units already snapped up, it seems most buyers agree.
Multiple wins at the 9th PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards
Yet it is not only investors who see the appeal of the seafront property. The rare freehold seafront strata landed development in Sembawang made waves at the 9th PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Singapore), with the independent judging panel praising it for the bold approach and wealth of amenities it offers residents and naming it the country’s “Best Strata Housing Development”. The development also won “Best Residential Green Development”, “Best Housing Development (Singapore)”, and “Best Strata Housing Architectural Design”.
“Distinctive seafront living, with a black-and-white, contemporary aesthetic that runs from the exteriors into the interiors and contrasts with surrounding greenery and blue waters, Watercove by Bukit Sembawang Estates excels with over 20 lifestyle facilities, beach access, and the atmosphere of a modern tropical resort,” the judges said.
The 80 spacious freehold houses — four of which are semi-detached — are set amidst a safe and secure gated residential resort community that blurs the boundaries between indoor and alfresco living. The carefully landscaped grounds allow residents to immerse themselves in nature, while also having access to world-class facilities including two pools, an aromatherapeutic garden, spa facilities and an indoor and outdoor gym.
Connectivity is of course a key component of Watercove’s attraction, too. Although its located on the island’s northern tip provides much-needed respite from the clammer of downtown Singapore, the new Canberra MRT station ensures residents remain only moments from the heart of the action, while closer to home there’s an abundance of lifestyle activities from championship golf courses to nature reserves and even canoeing at Sembawang Beach. As the recipient of the award for Best Residential Green Development, the beachside project adheres to BCA Green Mark Gold Plus standards with highly efficient air-conditioning systems; water heater units that recycle waste heat; and photovoltaic panels.
