Amaryllis Ville, Residences at Evelyn most actively transacted in Newton area

Update: 10 Evelyn will now preview on Sept 29, instead of Sept 22 and 23 as previously mentioned.
In the neighbourhood of Newton Road in prime District 11, the condominiums that saw the most transactions from June to August were Amaryllis Ville, Residences at Evelyn and 26 Newton.
At Residences at Evelyn, a highend freehold condo by City Developments Ltd, five units changed hands at prices ranging from $1,787 to $2,034 psf. The units were a mix of two-bedroom units of 1,033 sq ft to four-bedroom units of 2,250 sq ft, and were sold at prices ranging from $1.95 million ($1,887 psf) to $4.2 million ($1,867 psf), according to caveats lodged with URA Realis. The highest psf price was achieved by the seller of a 1,528 sq ft, three-bedroom unit on the 29th floor, who sold it for $3.1 million ($2,034 psf) in July.
Completed in 2007, Residences at Evelyn is a 208-unit project with twin 33-storey towers.

The indicative price for 10 Evelyn is said to be $2,600 to $2,700 psf.
Meanwhile, on Newton Road, the project that was most recently completed is 26 Newton, a 180-unit freehold condo by Novelty Group. The project was completed in April last year and so far, close to 80% of the units have been sold.
All the one- and two-bedroom units in the project are sold. The remaining units are mainly two-bedroomplus-study units of 775 sq ft, which range from $1.979 million for units on the sixth floor to $2.117 million for a 24th-floor unit. The project comprises a single tower block of 26 floors.
