SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - The sale of a unit at luxury condo Ardmore Park was the most profitable condo resale transaction recorded during the week of April 11 to 18. The seller of the four-bedroom, 2,885 sq ft apartment made a profit of $8.16 million after it sold for $13 million ($4,510 psf) on April 14. The unit had been purchased for $4.85 million ($1,681 psf) in December 2000, which means the seller made a 168% profit on the unit over a holding period of more than 22 years.
This is the second most profitable resale transaction recorded at Ardmore Park as well as the second-highest psf price transacted. The most profitable transaction occurred in April 2020 when the seller of a 8,740 sq ft duplex penthouse unit raked in a profit of $11.65 million after it sold for $27.65 million ($3,163 psf). The seller had held the unit since January 1998, when they purchased it for $16 million ($1,831 psf).

Ardmore Park is a 330-unit freehold condo located in the prestigious Ardmore Park area in prime District 10. Developed by Wharf Estates Singapore, the former Wheelock Properties, the high-end condo was completed in 2001 and has three 30-storey towers. Typical units at the condo are 2,885 sq ft, four-bedroom apartments but it also has six 8,740 sq ft duplex penthouses. Last July, the development saw a new psf-price high of $4,881 after a four-bedroom apartment changed hands for $14.08 million.
The Ladyhill, another freehold condo in District 10, saw the second most profitable resale transaction during the week in review. A three-bedroom, 2,411 sq ft unit on the first floor was sold for $7.28 million ($3,019 psf) on April 13. The seller had bought the unit from the developer in March 2003 for $3.81 million. This means they made a profit of $3.47 million (91%) on the transaction.
This is the most profitable transaction to take place at The Ladyhill, beating the previous record set in April 2010 when a 2,325 sq ft unit fetched $6.6 million ($2,839 psf). The seller, who had acquired the unit in October 2000 for $3.93 million ($1,690 psf), netted a gain of $2.67 million.
The transaction also marks a new psf-price high for the development and the first time it crossed the $3,000 psf threshold. It beats the previous high of $2,839 psf registered in October 2010 when a 2,325 sq ft unit changed hands for $6.6 million.
