In Sentosa Cove, a bungalow on Lakeshore View was recently sold for $15.5 million, according to a caveat lodged with URA Realis on July 28. Based on the land area of 8,579 sq ft, the price translates into $1,807 psf. The sale was brokered by Steve Tay, a luxury bungalow specialist in Sentosa Cove and vice-president of resale at CBRE Realty. The buyer is believed to be a Chinese businessman who is a Singapore permanent resident (PR).
The house is just one of 19 on Lakeshore View that is on elevated ground, with views of the Serapong golf course, the saltwater lake and the sea beyond. The seller, a Hong Kong businessman, had spent $7 million building the house on Lakeshore View, and another $2 million on its interiors. The house has a builtup area of more than 8,000 sq ft.
As the house is a holiday home, it was designed with the highest specifications. The gourmet kitchen alone cost at least $500,000. The flooring throughout the house is of marble and natural stone imported from Italy. The living room comes with a 15m triple-volume ceiling and a customised display wall for collectibles and books.
