A pair of freehold bungalows strategically located within minutes’ walk of the Botanic Gardens – Singapore’s 1st UNESCO world heritage site – is on the market.
Designed by Han Loke Kwang, founder and principal architect of award-winning practice HYLA Architects, the clever architecture is catered for today’s modern living. It features a pair of charismatic bungalows encompassing a central courtyard and a 15m-long swimming pool, providing a relaxing communal area in a coveted prime landed enclave.
The interiors of the two houses are an interplay of high-quality ceramic tiles, teak and hardwood flooring, with vibrant colours and bespoke fixtures and fittings. Staircases are cantilevered and artfully designed to add an element of interest and accentuate the loft-like space, as well as ensure good airflow and maximise natural light.

Each house comprises six bedrooms over three levels. The sizeable dining & living areas on the first floor has full-height glass sliding doors that fully open onto a pool deck – creating a seamless indoor-outdoor space. The first level has a spacious bedroom with en suite bathroom and private entrance to the lush outdoor garden.
Three more generously sized bedrooms, all with en suite bathrooms, are located on the second level. On the top floor are two more bedrooms, a cosy family area with a dry kitchenette, a bathroom and outdoor roof terrace suitable for entertainment.
The two bungalows combined have a built-up area of 11,700 sq ft and 12 bedrooms. “It was designed with a concept of multi-generational living with families staying close together, bonding and interacting at the ample communal areas and respectively still being able to enjoy full privacy within their bungalows,” comments Adrian Chay, Knight Frank’s Associate Sales Director, who is the realtor marketing the pair of bungalows.

Location attributes, multi-generational living
Conveniently situated within the heart of Bukit Timah, these properties have strong appeal to high-net-worth individuals or families seeking to invest in a home within an affluent residential enclave with a prestigious address.
Renowned educational institutions in close proximity include Nanyang (NYPS) and Raffles Girls’ (RGPS) Primary Schools (within 1km), as well as Singapore Chinese Girls’ School (SGCS), which is within 2km. Other schools in the area include St Margaret’s Secondary School, Nanyang Girls’ High School, Hwa Chong Institution and National Junior College.
The properties also enjoy easy access to three MRT stations – Farrer Road station on the Circle Line, Tan Kah Kee station on the Downtown Line, and Botanic Gardens interchange station for the Circle and Downtown Lines – as well as quick connectivity to the CBD.

Boutique cafes, F&B outlets, supermarkets and gourmet grocers, as well as a whole host of other amenities, are located within this prime central location and cater for a wide age group. This is especially appealing to multi-generational families with school-going children.
“These prized freehold assets will be an excellent choice for investors and owner-occupiers,” says Chay. “For multi-generational families to buy the two bungalows collectively, the deal can be structured with one purchaser (the parent or child) for each individual land-plot.”
The guide price for the properties is well-supported by its attractive and exclusive prime location and land scarcity in this established enclave. Both bungalows are collectively priced at $22.96 million, or $2,398 psf based on a combined land area of 9,572 sq ft. Each bungalow, which sits on a land-plot of 4,786 sq ft, is priced at $11.48 million.
Property view
“Location is one of the key considerations for astute home buyers, and prime districts continue to draw their attention as they believe that the capital and investment value of properties here will be secured,” Chay says.
The recent buoyant market activity is a sign that prime freehold landed homes continue to be a draw due to the limited supply, Chay continues. The level of enquiries and interest stems from the belief that such assets are relatively stable and provide long-term investment yield, he adds.
“Singapore’s strong fundamentals and effective handling of the coronavirus pandemic have accelerated interest from property buyers,” Chay comments. “Many have entered the market in recent months in anticipation of an upward price trend, since the global economy is on the path of recovery. Staying constantly invested in the real estate market is an important factor in wealth preservation, especially so in our city state’s resilient environment.”
