说到大马首个围篱式有地房产，大家都会联想到双溪毛濡的 SIERRAMAS 或 VALENCIA.
TAN & TAN 与 GAMUDA 是 这个高尚住宅区的两大发展商，不同的是前者的发展地都是永久地契，而后者的发展地九成是99年地契。单是SIERRAMAS 的面积，就有175 亩， 而 GAMUDA则有225亩地，两者合共400亩地。

Sierramas is the 1st guarded and gated landed property community in the country. The developer Tan & Tan has very tight control on its security, to the extent that he Malaysian chapter of the International Federation nominated Sierramas as the best residential project of year 2002. This is the area that is inviting for the urbanites of today with their concerns about not just where to live, but how to live. The 2 new additions to Sierramas are Garden Manor (which was launched in end of 2009, and VPed now) and Park Manor, just launched.

Let’s start with Garden Manor. It was launched in one of the sunny Friday of Dec 2009. It is a small and low density development with only 41 units available for sales. All non bumi units (70%) were finished sold out within the first 45 minutes of the sales. The 30% of bumi quota were also sold out on the following day. Most of the purchasers were Tan & Tan’s internal stakeholders and supporters from Sierramas West and Sierramas East.

GM销售价从1.48mil起跳，领导层本想每卖十间就起价10万，即1.58Mil，1,68mil. 其实发展商的领导层万万没想到GM的销售额会如此惊人, 销售活动从早上九点开始售卖，怎知在短短的45分钟售完， 当领导层在十点钟从总公司致电询问销售情况的当儿，才知道所有非土族单位已经被一扫而空，而且只按1.48mil 价格售卖，发展商领导层只好饮恨兴叹。
There are 3 types of units namely Type A, B, C. The Type A are corner units, where Type B is the intermediate unit (BU 3500 Sqft). Type C is the biggest unit, 4 storey and comes with lift. It is a stratafied development with security (parameter fencing with CCTV, 24 hours security patrol), club house and swimming pool. All units are fenceless.

From the above Gaden Manor Siteplan, Row Unit No. 33-41, and Row Unit No. 32-27, are backing each others, thus less privacy, Row 14-21 are backing the NKVE, thus can get some noice and dust from the street. Thus the best row would be Row 22-25, and Row 1-13, with the unlock view from the living room.
Park Manor on the other hand is a replicate of Garden Manor, both are 41 units in total. The only different is Park Manor are zero lot with bigger BU of around 5500 sqft to 6500 sqft, the price is from RM4.2mil and above. This is perhaps the most expensive launch of Sierramas thus far.

Conclusion: There is no good or bad of both developments, it is depends on one‘s budget.
But with the price tag of RM4.2mil, Garden Manor which is half the price of Park Manor, seems a good bargain. If u want to have Sierramas in your mailing address, garden manor seems a good buy and it is the brand new addition to this highend enclave.
Sierramas is going to have another International School, currently in the making and commercial will be up soon. It is also closed to the MRT Sungai Buluh Station, a stone throw distance from the Sungai Buluh toll, linked by NKVE to others part of KLV, and also closed to the RRIM Redevelopment land, Kwasa Damansara.
