A 5,662 sq ft, single-floor mega unit on the 15th floor of Ritz Carlton Residences in Cairnhill is for sale at $22 million ($3,955 psf). This unit used to be two separate three-bedroom units; however, KOP Ltd, the developer, decided to rebuild it into a larger single unit.
“We did this because we feel that there is a demand for big units,” says Leny Suparman, CEO and executive director of property and hospitality group KOP. “A lot of penthouses are typically over two to three floors, but this is for those who are looking for a single-floor spacious home.”

The outcome is a five-bedroom unit with spacious rooms, furnished with luxury fittings. The mega-unit was designed by Edmund Ng, of Edmund Ng Architects. Altogether, the renovation and interior design costs were close to $1 million. The attention to detail is noticeable even before one enters the unit – the main door is made of American oak, which went through six different processes and treatments in the US, Singapore and China. “They had to do a lot of bleaching and sanding to get a very distressed look,” shares Phoebe Teo, sales and marketing executive at KOP.
All the bedrooms are en suite and fit a dehumidified walk-in closet by B&B Italia. The master bathroom stands out for its Ann Sacks-Selvaggio feature wall, which alone costs $15,000, shares Suparman. The vanity top, flooring and wall are made of Palissandro Classico marble from Italy. The shower wall, meanwhile, is made of Thasso white marble from Greece.
