Those who yearn for a slice of urban metropolitan living laced with elements of nature will find it at the upscale Principal Garden, comprising four 24-storey residential towers.
In a small, urbanised city-state like Singapore, the words ‘property development’ instantly conjures up images of human hives of apartment blocks and cavernous car parks. So it is somewhat refreshing to come across a development that breaks the mould and features plenty of open space and verdant greenery, which are usually lacking in most private and public housing projects in Singapore.
Developed by two renowned developers – UOL Group Limited and Kheng Leong Co Pte Ltd, Principal Garden, which is situated within the prestigious Prince Charles Crescent, is a development quite unlike its neighbours. Designed based on a unique 80/20 concept – 80 percent landscaped gardens and 20 percent residential blocks, Principal Garden is truly an oasis in the city surrounded by lush gardens, sweeping lawns, pools and tranquil water features. In fact, with the seclusion and cool temperature that is uniquely afforded by the surrounding foliage, returning home after a long day at work is like stepping into a holiday resort.
Prestigious location coupled with an abundance of amenities
In addition to being surrounded by verdant greenery, Principal Garden, which sits on the city fringe in between Redhill and the serene Jervois precinct, is also flanked by a slew of exclusive Good Class Bungalows (GCBs) and foreign embassies including Brunei Darussalam, Embassy of Republic of Indonesia and Malaysia High Commission, further enhancing the area’s exclusive and private ambience.
Principal Garden’s unique location also provides easy access to a slew of amenities – whether by foot, public transportation or by car, those living at this development will get to enjoy utmost convenience as the area is well served by major expressways and transportation links including the Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE) and Redhill MRT station.
Families with children will also appreciate the convenience of the location, with top institutions like Crescent Girls’ School, River Valley Primary School, Alexandra Primary School, and Gan Eng Seng Primary School just a short drive away. Lastly, the development is within proximity to various shopping, dining and entertainment precincts, such as the vibrant Orchard Road shopping belt, Great World City, Tiong Bahru Plaza, Brickworks Food Centre, Valley Point Shopping Centre, IKEA Alexandra, and more.
Luxurious and well thought-out interiors
Comprising 663 units in total, keen buyers can pick from a good mix of one- to four-bedroom apartment types, as well as penthouse units depending on their requirement and budget. Regardless of which unit they pick, buyers can be assured that the interiors are all meticulously outfitted with top-of-the-line fittings and finishes, as it is developed by UOL Group Limited – one of Singapore’s most established property companies, with an impressive portfolio of investment and development properties. The firm has also developed several other residential projects that have been very well received, such as Botanique at Bartley, Riverbank @ Fernvale, Spottiswoode Residences at Spottiswoode Park Road and Thomson Three at Brighthill Drive.
Standard unit types at Principal Garden range from one- to three-bedroom units ranging from 400 sq ft to 1,000 sq ft – perfect for singles and even young families and couples starting out. For those who prefer something more spacious and luxurious, they can pick from either the three- or four-bedroom premium units, which range from 1,200 sq ft to 2,300 sq ft in size, and even come with private lifts.
Another highlight of this 99-year leasehold development is the magnificent views of the Singapore Botanic Gardens and Orchard Road that residents can enjoy from the comfort of their homes – thanks to the absence of high-rise buildings within the area.
For leisure and relaxation pursuits, residents can choose to take a refreshing dip at either the onsen or Jacuzzi pool. Alternatively, fitness enthusiasts will enjoy sweating it out at the cavernous gym spanning 1,614.60 sq ft, as well as the yoga and aerobic rooms.
Whether you are looking to acquire a property solely for investment or as a residential address, Principal Garden is without a doubt an unbeatable choice.
