Lye reveals that the owners are selling the penthouse to move to a bigger place to accommodate their growing family. While the unit is more than 10 years old, its original finishing is well-maintained. “The owners are home-proud, so over the years, they have been spending money to upkeep and maintain the place,” she says.

Han Huan Mei, List SIR’s director of research, points out that “there is a limited supply of such good-quality luxury homes”. She states: “As well-heeled foreigners are unable to buy landed properties in Singapore with the exception of bungalows at Sentosa Cove, the best alternative would be to purchase penthouses for the large living space that they desire and for capital preservation purposes.”

Lye notes that St Regis Residences continues to attract buyer interest with its St Regis branding and concierge services. St Regis Residences has its own dedicated concierge to serve the residents. Residents may ask for room service, butler service or laundry service from the adjoining St Regis hotel. “Some buyers specifically choose St Regis Residences for its concierge services and the fact that it is in the heart of Orchard yet away from the noise,” she says.
