Green and grand
Botanique at Bartley, UOL Group Limited’s latest residential development, attracted more than 4,000 potential buyers to its public viewing last weekend despite the current soft property market. Just what is it about this condominium that has piqued the interest of so many? Let’s find out.
Singapore is well known for its high property prices, whether it’s a condominium, landed property or even an HDB flat. But one upcoming residential project promises to go against the grain and give buyers and investors really good value.
Enter Botanique at Bartley, UOL Group Limited’s newest condominium development. With 70 percent of its 797 units attractively priced below $1 million, the 99-year leasehold project in the city-fringe will no doubt draw owner-occupiers and investors who would appreciate the exclusivity of a condominium at affordable prices.
Botanique at Bartley comprises nine 17-storey towers, divided into four zones: Botanique Resort, Waterfall Crest, Tropical Spa, and Verdant Social Garden. Each zone has its own nature-inspired facilities, and units range from one- to three-bedrooms, including two- and three-bedroom flexi and three-bedroom premium unit types. Unit sizes range from 495 to 1,356 sq ft.
Homeowners can customise their apartments in a variety of ways. For instance, a two-bedroom flexi unit can be converted from an owner-occupied one into a dual-key unit, and a three-bedroom premium unit comes with a customisable universal room. The flooring for all units is made of natural marble (living rooms) and American white oak timbre (bedrooms), and kitchens come with SMEG appliances. Furthermore, each three-bedroom apartment comes with a wine chiller and coffee machine.
Apart from its attractive prices, Botanique, as its name suggests, features an emphasis on nature, with its lush landscaping and water features. Its ginger and eco gardens, tranquillity pool, 50-metre hilltop lap pool, foot massage pool, water cascade walk, lotus pond, and forest aquatic gym all provide a relaxing, idyllic environment for residents to unwind after a long day.
The centrepiece of Botanique’s undulating terrain that passes through every zone is undoubtedly its hilltop clubhouse, which includes a gym on its lower level and a private dining room upstairs. In addition, over 70 percent of the units enjoy pool or landscape views, while over 65 percent of them are north- or south-facing.
Surrounded by convenience
Botanique at Bartley is not only inviting within, but also convenient throughout. Transport in and around the area is a breeze, with Bartley MRT station just a three-minute walk away, and the CTE and PIE nearby.
At the same time, there is no shortage of amenities to cater to residents’ shopping and dining needs. Nex shopping mall, Heartland Mall, Tampines Retail Park and Chomp Chomp Food Centre are all within the vicinity.
In addition, the potential growth in the Paya Lebar area and long-term plan to relocate the Paya Lebar Airbase which will free up 800 hectares of land for alternative use, will be a game changer for the area.
Parents, as well as couples planning to start families, need not worry about their children’s education should they choose Botanique at Bartley. There is an abundance of reputable schools in the area, including Paya Lebar Methodist Girl’s School (primary and secondary), Cedar Primary School, Cedar Girls’ Secondary School, Nanyang Junior College, Saint Andrew’s Village, Stamford American International School, Australian International School and Lycee Francais de Singapour (French International School).
