Moving to West coast area

Post by New Arty » Mon, 23 Jan 2017 9:18 am

Well, not so much moving to Singapore, but moving within Singapore!!

After 15 months of living in Serangoon / Kovan area, my work location will change from Defu area to Jurong East later this year. I don't want to commute to/from Jurong every day so we are looking at moving closer. Other than a few trips to IMM and Haw Par Villa, we don't really know the area very well so looking for some advice on suitable areas in west of island

- your budget (approx range) - $3,200 - $3,600
- your workplace/s (don't name names, just approx neighbourhood) - Penjuru Rd, Jurong
- the size and/or type of property that you are seeking (#bedrooms, on-site facilities etc) - min 2 bedrooms, preferably 3.
- will you have a car here? - No
- proximity to transport required. MRT-subway/buses/the airport/Malay border post (if so, which one). - 10 mins to bus route for work location, 10 mins to MRT
- will you have any accompanying children needing to attend school? If so, age/s? - No

Nice to have:
- will you need to be able to say walk to the local shops, a library, your doctor, a market, and so on? - 10mins walk to supermarket
- access to any specific sport, social, and recreation facilities? - Close to PCN, if possible
- are you considering bringing any pets. If so what kind, and will they require outdoor access and/or exercise? - No
- are you considering bringing any parents/in-laws etc? Do they have specific needs (for example difficulty climbing stairs?) - No

Your current home and commute:
- are you already a city dweller? i.e. Are you used to city-centre hustle and bustle, or would you hope for a bit more peace and quiet? - Currently living in Kovan, but like to have easy access to city !!
- what is the size and type (apartment, house+garden etc) of your current home? - Currently in 1000 sqft apartment within a large condo complex with many facilities
- what are any current commute times like? - Current commute is an easy 10 min bus or bike ride.
