SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - The seller of a unit at Ardmore Park, along Ardmore Park, made the top gain of $11.65 million over the week of April 19 to 26. The 8,740 sq ft duplex, five-bedroom penthouse spans the 29th and 30th floors. It was bought for $16 million ($1,831 psf) in January 1998 and sold for $27.65 million ($3,163 psf) on April 24. The seller therefore made a 73% profit, or an annualised profit of 2% over slightly more than 22 years.
Located in District 10, Ardmore Park was completed in 2001 and comprises 330 freehold units. There are only six penthouses in Ardmore Park condo and they rarely come up for sale, says Samuel Eyo of Lighthouse Property Consultants. The last time a penthouse changed hands was in 2010, and it fetched $30 million.
