Where to live?!

Post by sunshineband » Fri, 04 May 2007 1:15 pm

We are new in Singapore. Ex pat couple ( no kids yet), early 30s.
Just starting the house hunting, and after some thoughts on what would suit us best.

Husband works in the CBD. Not sure I will be working - at least at first - so want somewhere manageable enough for him to get to work, but where I am within walking distance of some activity. No point being in the most amazing apartment if you feel isolated there. Doesn't have to be "city centre" as such - just somewhere with a few shops/cafes/bars etc within walking distance. We are used to "city living", and the convenience of that. Like the feel of Holland Village, but is that too "ex-patty"?!

We need 3 beds and would like some (private) outdoor space, like a balcony or terrace. Everything else ( facilities etc) a bonus.

Finding that the agent we are working with has some pre-conceived ideas about what we "should" want, which aren't necessarily right! Doesn't have to be super new, exclusive or ex-pat only.

Think we have a pretty generous budget (12) so should be acheivable to find something we like in the right loctaion - just haven't worked out where yet.

Any thoughts/advice would be much appreciated.

You could consider The Caribbean at Harbour Front. Transport is excellent with both MRT and plenty of busses right across the road and VivoCity has everything you could possibly need. It is also close to the peaceful Labrador Park, Mount Faber as well as to the beaches at Sentosa. The apartments are not the biggest in Singapore, but the surrounding facilities are excellent: huge pool(s), gym, tennis courts, basket practise court, bbq pits etc.
