Apartment opinions:Leonie Twrs, Draycott or something else?

Post by RituC » Sun, 02 May 2010 4:38 pm

We are planning to move to Singapore in June. My husband is there searching for apartments.

Our main school choices are ISS or Chatsworth.

We've started looking in District 9 for apartments, but we're open. We don't want their bus ride to be more than 20 - 30 minutes if we go elsewhere.

Two buildings we like - with very spacious apartments - are the Draycott and Leonie Towers. Can anyone give me feedback on either of those places?

And, any other suggestions for similar buildings? What are other good areas to look in, and do you have a building or two we should consider?

The move is exciting - but we have so much to finalize!

Not familiar wtih either Draycott or Leonie but have you consider Cairnhill area? There are several condos around Cairnhill, new and old of varying sizes. Your kids can walk to Chatsworth and there are ample of groceries options, food options nearby as well. Of course, it is very close to the train station as well.

Both of the apartments you listed have lots of families, are really central and the apartments are large. They are considered "old" by Singapore standards - but favored a lot by expats. If you are looking at those two buildings you might also consider Four Seasons Park, The Claymore, Regency Park, Beverly Hill, Colonade.... these condos all have exceptionally large condos for being so central and are older buildings. Cairnhill (as mentioned) is also very convenient if you are looking at Chatsworth (walking distance) and is also close to ISS. There are a couple of older buildings that have big units (Cairnhill Plaza to name one) but also quite a bit of construction in the area (although living central that is a given).
The one thing about these older buildings is that you want to make sure you are in a renovated unit... and in Singapore sometimes the agent will say "renovated" - but that means a coat of paint and maybe a kitchen cupboard or two. The older units also come with older plumbing, pipes...etc... just kick the tires while you're viewing :)

I will look at Cairnhill and some of the other buildings suggested. And, great advice about the renovations - the unit we are looking at is not renovated, but we are putting a list of things we would like done in our letter of intent.

Thank you so much for both of your responses!

Perhaps you could try taking a look at Grange 70 , Grange 80 or Leonie condotel?

This 2 units are at great location as well. :)
