Words Michelle Yee
In a city filled with towering skyscrapers and high-rises, finding a residential development like The Garden Residences, surrounded by lush gardens and dotted with soothing water features, is a refreshing and welcome change. Jointly developed by Keppel Land and Wing Tai Asia, the 613-unit residential development offers an abundance of nature and green views, coupled with a great location and a slew of smart home features.
The star of the development is without a doubt the scenic Boardwalk, boasting over 100 species of trees and plants. There are also a handful of themed pavilions that add to the idyllic and calming ambience, offering residents with the perfect space to relax and rejuvenate.
A Foodie’s Paradise
Strategically located along Serangoon North Avenue 1, overlooking one of Singapore’s most-loved neighbourhoods – Serangoon Gardens, the Garden Residences is within close proximity to a diverse selection of lifestyle, shopping and dining options.
From hawker stalls to cafes, restaurants and bars, Serangoon Gardens is home to a plethora of delectable dining options. For unrivalled local fare, visit Serangoon Garden Food Centre in the day and Chomp Chomp in the night.
Some of the must-try stalls at Serangoon Garden Market & Food Centre include Aliff Nasi Lemak, Ah Seng Braised Duck Rice, and Serangoon Garden Bakery and Confectionery. Notable highlights from Chomp Chomp include the fried oyster omelette and the Ah Hock Fried Hokkien Mee. If you’re looking for a nicer set-up for a nice lunch or dinner, there are several good restaurants and cafes located in the estate, such as Arbite, Baci Baci, and Little Wimbly Lu @ myVillage.
Easy Access To Transportation Links and Amenities
Apart from being located close to a slew of delicious food options, the development is also within close proximity to a handful of public transportation links including Serangoon MRT station and bus interchange, and Kovan MRT station—which makes getting to the other parts of the island a breeze. For those who drive, major expressways such as CTE, SLE, TPE and KPE are also conveniently connected to the development. Residents will get to enjoy free shuttle service to and from Serangoon MRT station for the first year.
Furthermore, The Garden Residences is located close to the future Serangoon North MRT, which is part of the Cross Island Line (CRL), slated to be completed by 2029. The entire project is expected to span around 50 kilometres, and will connect the east, west and northeastern parts of Singapore.
For shopping and entertainment pursuits, residents can walk to myVillage or head to Greenwich V and NEX Mall, located just a short drive away.
Families with young children will have plenty of options to consider when deciding which school to enroll their young ones in, such as Rosyth School and Lycée Français de Singapour – both located within 1 kilometre from the development.
Other schools that are located nearby include Zhonghua Primary School, CHIJ Our Lady of Good Counsel, and St Gabriel’s Secondary School.
Luxurious and well thought-out interiors
Comprising a good mix of one- to five-bedroom apartment types ranging from 452 sq ft to 1,981 sq ft in floor area, spread out across five 15-storey towers, keen buyers can pick a unit based on their requirement and budget. All units have been meticulously designed and outfitted with top-of-the-line fittings and finishes.
Additionally, to allow homeowners to live luxuriously and at ease, the developer has gone the extra mile to equip the development with a slew of smart features such as community cameras – to allow home owners to check which facilities are in use or keep an eye on their children from the comfort of their homes; a smart visitor management system which allows home owners to give their visitors access through the front gate via a QR code; keyless letter boxes; a 24-hour gym that features automatic lights and air conditioning so residents can work out at their convenience; and more. For each individual unit, home owners can look forward to enjoying smart water heater and air con control, allowing them to adjust the temperature before they reach home; a smart hub that offers compatibility and connectivity with an array of smart devices; a smart lock that offers temporary codes to visitors.
A Premium Property
One of the most important things to look at when purchasing a property is to check who the developer is. Buyers of The Garden Residences can be assured that they are purchasing a premium and quality house as it is developed by two reputable developers: Keppel Land and Wing Tai Asia – both have extensive experience building numerous renowned and established residential developments such as Le Nouvel Ardmore, The Crest, The Tembusu, Belle Vue Residences and Draycott Eight. Keppel Land is also known for establishing landmark developments like the Marina Bay Financial Centre and Ocean Financial Centre.
