SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - A Good Class Bungalow (GCB) at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac on Mount Echo Park is on the market for $32 million. Located off Jervois Road, the property sits on a large freehold plot of 15,156 sq ft and the double-storey house has a built-up area of about 7,000 sq ft. The asking price translates to about $2,111 psf on the land area.
“The neighbourhood is very peaceful because the road in front of the house is a no-through road, so only the residents of the 30-odd houses use this road,” says the owner who declined to be named.
While some of the surrounding houses have been leased out, the majority of the owners have been residents for some years, she adds.
The owner and her husband bought the house for $9 million ($594 psf) in 1997 and it was their family home for more than 20 years. As their children have grown up and moved into homes of their own, the owner has decided to put the house on the market for sale.
The GCB is located on a regular sized plot on level ground, with a car porch for four cars, a swimming pool in the backyard, and landscaped garden with a pond in the front, which is the owner’s favourite part of the home.
The ground floor of the house features a spacious living room, a family room, formal dining room adjoining a spacious kitchen, and a second smaller dining nook. There’s a guest room at the front of the house, which is also ideal as a study. The second level has a family room and four en suite bedrooms.
“Every bedroom has a view of the surrounding greenery, and the orientation of the house is towards Chatsworth Park and Bishopsgate,” says Steve Tay, senior associate vice-president at List Sotheby’s International Realty, the exclusive marketing agent for the sale of the property.
