The first floor consists of a living and dining area, which opens into the kitchen with a skylight window. There is also a common bathroom, a store room or helper’s room, as well as a bedroom with an en suite bathroom.
The master bedroom with an en suite bathroom is located on the second floor, and has access to a balcony. There is also another en suite bedroom on this floor. The third floor consists of a family area, another en suite bedroom, as well as two more bedrooms and a common bathroom.
Meanwhile, the attic level has one room that can be used as an entertainment room or a bedroom, says Edmund Tie’s Tan. There is also a common bathroom and a small terrace.
The porch has sufficient space for four cars.
The property is being sold with vacant possession and on an “as is where is” basis. Tan says that there has been a healthy level of interest given the generous land area and built-up area of the corner unit. Many of the interested parties, including multi-generation families, are considering the property for their own occupation, she adds.
