To the writer it is, this is the minimum requirement for a landed house to call a semi-d, anything smaller be deemed smaller semi-d. Never mind smaller semi-d, nowadays semi-ds are overused anyway, semi-d in the sky, every unit is a semi-d…you know who they are.

The layout are practical with no element of surprise, or creativity.

Each room is quite spacious, with guest room on ground floor.

The selling point:

Gated and guarded, 2 tier security level, linear garden with lakes, first in this part of the town.

The façade

There is nothing to shout about on the façade, boring, and uninspiring. Some argue this design can stand the test of time While, it looks old now, and it certain still looks of kinda old 2-3 decade later, like an VW old bettle, 30 years on still an old bettle, see my point!

I don’t like these pillars, but can fit 2 cars.

Finishing

As this is a BTS project, WYS is WYG. Finishing is average, not fantastic.

For those require refine living standard, you may need to spend abit to make up this baby.

Final Thought

Landed project are like gems nowadays, rare and precious!

The write always admires developers who make the efforts to build on-site show units, to enable buyers to have look and feel of the project before signing the dotted lines.

What more such sizeable development that is BTS, with close to 80% completed.

It is very encouraging to see developer putting up some great efforts to have the units build up to 70-80% and then launch it to the public, effectively eliminating the most material risks for all under construction project-ABANDON project. Therefore almost Zero Abandon Risk!!

Buyers can basically cherry pick the best unit for own stay!

Last but not least some selection of actual site pictures for your viewing pleasure.
