Clusters vs Landed housing vs condo

Post by queenie71 » Mon, 13 Jul 2009 9:18 am

Moving over later this year and deciding between cluster houses and individual small landed houses.

We like modern/contemporary so lots of stuff ruled out already.
Small outdoor terrace is fine.

Family with 2 children and a good study for working from home.

We quite liked the Tenerife but have been advised that Glentrees is better - in what way, I don't know...

Terrace in Tenerife was quite small also the development is very expensive.

Small landed houses are nice but no pool and am guessing it's always so hot in Singapore that the kids are going to need the pool so cluster is better!

Not considering woodlands area but is a pity as some nice clusters up there.

Also, what's the definition of a condo vs an apartment?

Anyone know anyothers? I seem to have exhausted the web for info.

The line can be fuzzy, but in general, condos have services (pool, gym, 24h security) and apartments don't. The word "apartment" is also often short-hand for "walk-up apartment", meaning a block of low-rise private housing with no lift and, typically, no services either.

countdown has started.

Any more views on clusters?

Anyone lived at or has friends at The either Teneriffe or Glentrees and can share exepriences?

What about rental prices at the mo? In fact, am going to post up discussion on rental as we speak...

All feedback greatly appreciated. THANKS

We live in a cluster house development called Summer Gardens on the East Coast (walking distance to Tanah Merah MRT). We really enjoy it as we have the space of the house (5 bedrooms) with a gorgeous big swimming pool at the front of our place. The pool never gets too crowded and it is conveniently located close to major shopping / freeways and the MRT.

It depends on personal tastes but our kids adore swimming and I certainly couldn't be away from a swimming pool in Singapore.
