I am surprised to still see rats listed in the review. I have lived here approximately 10 years.
There was a problem with rats for about 6 months to a year a couple years ago. As I understand it the NEA had a compliant about feral cats in the neighborhood sleeping on cars etc and caught or culled them, which resulted in the rats.
I have not seen a rat here for well over a year. Oddly have not seen a cat either!
On the plus side the units are large, split level (600mm level difference), have no party walls, not even a kitchen or laundry (unique), with windows on four sides.
The grounds have great landscaping.
The lobbies are large, lifts are band new, along with a new gym.
A few years ago I recall owners complaining about loosing tenants after 12 months, the joke was that were buying units here.
Fortunately the majority of the apartments have been renovated, although there are probably a few original ones around.
The negative is that the facade windows are not consistent, with varying types dependent on owner whims over the years. The pool and surrounds could also do with an upgrade (its clean and usable). There are plenty of car parks and to my knowledge no restrictions on numbers per unit, although there is limited undercover parking.
Relative to the new launches on the outskirts of Singapore and the new shoe box launches nearby, for me, as a free hold property its still good comparative value.
