Sentosa Cove was just starting to see transaction volume and prices recover last year. How will the latest property cooling measures affect Singapore’s playground for the rich and famous, and how will it fare vis-à-vis the rest of the prime districts?

A five-bedroom, duplex penthouse at The Oceanfront in Sentosa Cove is on the market for $13 million ($1,606 psf). The 8,095 sq ft unit is said to be the largest penthouse in Sentosa Cove as well as the largest of 29 “sky villas” at the 264-unit waterfront condo The Oceanfront.

From its vantage point on the 15th floor — the highest level at a Sentosa Cove condo — the super penthouse commands a sweeping 270-degree view of the sea, including the Southern Islands and the marina. The penthouse comes with private lift access from the basement carpark. The first level contains the living room with wraparound balcony, kitchen, home entertainment room, and five en-suite bedrooms including the master suite. It also houses a standalone guest suite with its own bedroom, and living and dining areas. The second level contains the dining room with en suite kitchen, an outdoor entertainment deck and swimming pool.
The Oceanfront was developed by a joint venture between Singapore-listed City Developments Ltd (CDL) and TID (an entity owned jointly by Hong Leong Holdings and Mitsui Fudosan). Launched in August 2006 at an initial average price of $1,600 psf, the project was fully sold before completion in 2010. It was designed by acclaimed architect firm Wimberly, Allison, Tong & Goo (WATG), which was behind The St Regis Singapore.
