District 15, East Coast properties have always taken a soft spot in my heart in terms of landed properties. They provide a rustic charm, away from the hustle of city living. East Coast properties have often been compared to District 10 Bukit Timah properties. However, we always felt that they had far more to offer.


East Coast Properties provides for a good variety of amenities. Fancy a weekend out at the beach for a nice barbeque and picnic? Head down to East Coast Park! Thinking of enjoying a few drinks with your close friends and family? East Coast Road is lined with amazing family-friendly bars and restaurants! Thinking about catching a movie? Drive down to Paya Lebar Quarter: a progressive city precinct set in the heart of Paya Lebar, itself a distinctive cultural enclave and a dynamic business hub.


It also is preferred by the rich who would rather remain a much lower profile as compared to living in the Bukit Timah area, which will often draw unwanted attention.


With all that District 15 has to offer, it is no wonder that residents living in this area find difficulty in relocating out of the area!


This review will be on an upcoming development by Sevens Group, for Princess @ 480 Guillemard Road. I felt that this development is particularly interesting, and anyone that is looking for a landed property purchase should consider this.

Why This Property Might Interest You


Located between District 14 and District 15

Guillemard Road sits on the border of District 15, which is located close to District 14. This provides an excellent opportunity to benefit from the gentrification of the Geylang area.


Geylang benefits from the interesting pool of F&B eateries, which are lined neatly along the different lorongs. Furthermore, recent developments at Paya Lebar Central which aim for full completion by 2030, will likely increase the surrounding property values of units in the vicinity.


There are plenty of shopping malls in the vicinity too, such as Kinex Shopping Mall that is a 5 minutes’ walk.


However, 480 Guillemard Road still belongs within District 15. This preserves its status as a property belonging to a core landed community, which is treasured by occupiers who generally prefer the privacy which it brings.

Close Proximity to Paya Lebar Central

It takes a short drive of 10 minutes to Paya Lebar Central, which consists of Paya Lebar Quarter, Paya Lebar Square, and Singpost Centre. Paya Lebar Central is an emerging commercial and lifestyle hub that will be bursting with huge real estate potential.

Detached Home-Living Along Guillemard Road

The residential landed homes along Guillemard Road consists of mostly terrace homes and shophouses, which are a common site along the Geylang lorongs. This proves a challenge for those that prefer living closer to the heart of town but might feel that there are no homes that are big enough to accommodate their families. Yet, District 15 houses that are located closer to the east of Singapore might be an inconvenience despite meeting their size requirements.

Princess @ 480 Guillemard Road stands out as it provides the space requirements of families who prefer a detached sized home which is close to to the Central Business District (CBD), which brings our next point.

Links to Major Road Networks

Situated right at the crossroads of Guillemard Road, Princess @ 480 Guillemard Road offers fantastic connectivity across to Nicoll Highway, MCE, and PIE/CTE, all within 15 minutes to the CBD.

Most Affordable Rebuilt, detached in D15


Past Transactions for District 15 Landed Properties

A quick comparison of prices shown, it might seem that at a negotiable, asking price of $6.1 million, the property might be relatively costly. However, take into consideration of the land rebuilding costs, and for a project of this size (Built Up Size: 5595 sqft), costs can easily be upwards of $2 million.


Current Asking Prices for District 15 Landed Properties

As compared to the current asking prices for landed properties in District 15, most of them cost an upwards of $6.2 million.


At a negotiable, asking price of $6.1 million, this makes to be one of the most affordable landed property on the market that is recently rebuilt.

Setbacks


Guillemard Road/ Lim Ah Woo Road



As Guillemard Road is a major road network, expect heavy traffic flow and noise during rush hour. If this is a concern, we suggest that you check out the surroundings during this timing.


Lim Ah Woo Road is located right in front of the premises which will help to reduce some of the noise and traffic congestion.
