having a 2nd viewing at water place and sanctuary green tomorrow. will be working in CBD and Wife and two children <3 will accompany me here in Singapore for 2 years.
Is Tanjong Rhu too isolated? worried about 'cabin fever' creeping in? Taxis are so cheap that it'll be easy to get to Parkway Parade in inext to no time... and I think there are restaurants over the bridge next to the indoor Stadium...
We looked at those places too and thought they were a bit far away from amenities so decided on the Cote D'Azur right next to Parkway Parade. We chose this place because we don't have a car and everything we need on our doorstep. My husband takes the bus plus service or sometime the 196 express into the CBD everyday and it takes no more than 30 minutes door to door. We also have 2 little ones under the age of 3yrs.
We live at Water Place. I wouldnt say its isolated along Tanjong Rhu. There is a shuttle bus that goes to and from Parkway Parade every half hour, and there are also shuttle buses that go to and from the CBD at frequent intervals. There are a few restaurants over the bridge and a pub has opened up there recently. There is also work going on to build a leisure park and a supermarket next to the Indoor Stadium - I believe it opens sometime before the end of the year. There are loads of families with young children, its a great place to live.
Your post is really comforting as we opted for a Water Place... I saw about 20 others and whilst I'm sure there is a perfect place, with the perfect mix, for the right money... but life's too short and so I'm pleased with our choice. We pick the keys up 23 Oct... (touch wood!) and can't wait. The supermarket and shops opening up just over the bridge and the proximity to the CBD are great... and the project has a really friendly feel to it... see you round the pool?
