Penthouse at Chelsea Gardens going for $4.9 mil

SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - A 2,809 sq ft penthouse at the freehold, 40-unit Chelsea Gardens has been put up for sale with a price tag of $4.9 million or $1,744 psf. The property on the market was originally a four-bedroom penthouse. At the start of this year, the owners – an Australian family – decided to embark on renovations and convert the four bedrooms into three large bedrooms with en suite instead. Their children have grown up and are no longer living in the penthouse.
“The owners wanted bigger bedrooms so that when their family came to visit, they would have more space,” says Kaizar Karkaria, associate group director of PropNex’s luxury team, who is marketing the unit.

However, in the midst of the six-month renovation, one of the owners received a job posting in Australia. Instead of leaving the renovation half-done, the owners decided to complete it. Despite not being able to enjoy their reno- vated home, the owners did not scrimp on the renovations, spending some $600,000 to engage Design Intervention, an award-winning interior design firm, for the project.
The refurbishment of the Chelsea Gardens penthouse included installing scratch-resistant, pre-pressurised flooring; hacking the walls to create a larger living and dining area; fitting in brand-new plumbing and electrical wiring; and polishing the original marble flooring.

The rooms were fitted with Victorian-style doors, complete with brass handles. The master bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe, and the en suite has his-and-hers bathroom sinks. In the kitchen, white quartz countertops and new appliances from Bosch were installed.
“These are all the little touches and details that you would pretty much expect in a luxurious space,” says Karkaria.
