All in one Pearl @ Mount Faber
Moved in with my family last year in 2014 for about 6months now. Love the exclusive 1 Mount Faber road address.
This is ideal for nature lovers and those who prefer peace and quiet. Go for walks and runs up mount faber linking all the way to kent ridge park. Listen to the birds and crickets chirping or just breathe in the clean cool air.
Very family orientated, lots of other familes and kids around. Love the pool here.
Working in the CBD,its a 10min drive away. Taking a bus though, requires a 7-8mins walk out to Keppel road before getting a number of buses, but still takes only about in total 20-25min to get to work. Vivo city and sentosa are 2 bustops away.
I love the huge balcony which is great for outdoor dining, however the on going Sentosa gateway construction leaves quite abit of dust outside. Fortunately my unit faces away from that main road, so no noise pollution problems in the day.
Walls and windows are very thick, so it's very quiet especially at nights which is essential for a good night's rest.
The whole unit was extensively renovated 4years ago by previous owner, so cant really comment on the original fittings, but the layout is squarish with good size bedrooms, high ceiling, spacious living and dining areas.
Exterior was recently painted, but some parts of the condo starting to look its age like the lifts, lobby areas and barbecue pits. Gym is small but hardly see anyone using it except on weekends. Most of the residents like myself prefer to run outdoors.
Estate is very well-maintained, despite having trees all around.
Management here appears laid back and not very strict, which can be good or bad depending on your situation.
There is a wet market and food centre in nearby telok blangah or bukit purmei estate, but we do our grocery shopping mostly at Giant vivo city.
Parking is ample with two basements and a car washing bay.
Overall looking at it's average per sq ft, I would say this place is a bargain.
