Within Singapore’s residential landscape, District 10 remains one of the most sought-after areas. With its location close to Orchard Road and vast amenities in the vicinity including reputable schools and the prized Singapore Botanic Gardens, this prime district in the Core Central Region (CCR) has long been associated with esteemed residential neighbourhoods.
Given these factors, it’s little wonder that homes in District 10 have seen resilient demand, supporting property prices in the area. According to EdgeProp Research, average transacted prices of private non-landed properties in the district have grown by 39% between 2015 and 2022. In addition, the past few months has seen a narrowing gap between the prices of properties in the CCR and the Rest of Central Region (RCR), further spurring interest among property buyers who view it as an opportune time to purchase property in the CCR.
To that end, Sloane Residences, a freehold development in District 10’s Balmoral neighbourhood, presents a good opportunity for astute buyers seeking a property in this desirable district. The boutique development, which has just 52 exclusive units, offers a tranquil sanctuary close to a wealth of amenities. Slated to receive its temporary occupation permit in December, Sloane Residences has a select mix of two- and three-bedroom units available for sale.

Ready homes in prime location

Sloane Residences is a redevelopment of the former Sloane Court Hotel, located on Balmoral Road. It is surrounded by well-established, affluent neighbourhoods including Goodwood Hill, Ardmore Park and Draycott Park.
Despite being just a five-minute drive from Orchard Road, Sloane Residences offers a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city. Nestled in the middle of Balmoral Road – a quiet, tree-lined avenue flanked by mostly lower-density, non-landed properties – the development is tucked away from major District 10 thoroughfares such as Bukit Timah Road and Dunearn Road.
Nonetheless, the condominium’s location places it within a short distance of numerous amenities. Just 500m down the road is Balmoral Plaza, home to several eateries, cafes and a supermarket. The development is also within walking distance of Newton MRT Interchange Station, which serves the Downtown and North-South Lines; as well as the Stevens MRT Station which serves the Downtown and Thomson-East Coast Lines.
Meanwhile, top schools such as Anglo-Chinese School (Primary) and Singapore Chinese Girls’ School are within a 1km distance from Sloane Residences, or less than a five-minute drive away, making the development an ideal choice for families with school-going children.

The developer notes that in addition to its tranquil location on Balmoral Road, care has been taken to further maximise the privacy of the residences at the condominium. Designed by acclaimed Singapore architectural firm Ong & Ong, the development was crafted such that the majority of its apartments are set further in on the site, away from Balmoral Road.
Sloane Residences is a project by TSky Development – a joint-venture company between Singapore-listed construction companies Tiong Seng Holdings and Ocean Sky International.
Tiong Seng, which is also the main contractor for Sloane Residences, has a track record of over 60 years with projects including five-star luxury hotel ParkRoyal Collection Pickering (formerly ParkRoyal on Pickering), the 698-unit condominium The Panorama in Ang Mo Kio, and the 774-unit One Pearl Bank condominium in Pearl Hill.

Spacious, refined residences

Sloane Residences comprises a 12-storey block which houses a mix of two-bedders measuring 743 sq ft and three-bedders starting from 1,249 sq ft. It also has four-bedroom units measuring 1,496 sq ft which have been fully sold.

The three-bedroom units still available for sale all measure 1,249 sq ft. Each unit has a private lift lobby, ensuring residents and their guests can enjoy privacy. Inside, the units’ floor plans were designed for efficiency, featuring a squarish layout that maximises space. Entering the unit, residents are greeted by a spacious living and dining area that boasts tall ceilings measuring between 3.2m to 6m. The area opens out to a wide balcony that has foldable sliding doors, thus allowing it to serve as a natural extension to the space.
Bedrooms are tucked on either side of the living and dining areas, based on a dumbbell layout. A dry and wet kitchen is located adjacent to the dining area, along with a utility room and laundry area that leads out to the back entrance and service lift.

A handful of 743 sq ft, two-bedroom units are also available for sale at Sloane Residences. These apartments, located on levels 1, 2 and 3, feature a truly unique concept. Rather than opting for a conventional floor plan, TSky Development elected to position the two-bedroom units along an open corridor featuring ample greenery. The openness of the shared corridor provides a sense of spaciousness without compromising privacy, as there are only a maximum of four units available on each floor.
The spaciousness is further highlighted within the units, which each feature a high ceiling of at least 4.65m. The layout is also fully optimised. A roomy living area can easily fit a 3½-seater sofa, while the dining area can accommodate an eight-seater dining set.

All units are decked out with quality finishes and fittings, including large-sized marble tiles for the flooring, kitchen appliances from V-Zug, Valcucine kitchen cabinets and Grohe sanitary fittings. Other thoughtful features include separate refrigerators in the dry and wet kitchens, and large windows in the wet kitchen to provide ample ventilation.
Residents at Sloane Residences will have access to a well-curated list of facilities, including a lap pool, jacuzzi, kids’ pool, a function room, a dining pavilion with barbecuing and cooking facilities, as well as an outdoor lounge area.

Attractive package

A key facet of Sloane Residences’ appeal is its near-completed status that offers buyers a home that will soon be ready for them to move into, thus avoiding a long waiting period. Amplifying this appeal are the current promotions being offered by the developer to prospective buyers, with prices starting from $2.262 million for a two-bedroom apartment and from $3.492 million for a three-bedroom apartment.
The price places Sloane Residences within a sweet spot in the high-end market, offering a palatable entry point for a brand-new property in the prime District 10. In addition to its capital appreciation potential, the property is also expected to benefit from the robust rental market, given its location and surrounding amenities that are popular among expatriates and other renters.
As part of a current promotion by TSky Development, buyers that purchase a three-bedroom apartment can opt for the installation of Ziptrak blinds at the balcony, allowing them to better enjoy their balcony space with protection against heat and rain.
