A three-storey detached house at 37 Jalan Kechubong, in Hougang, will be put up for auction on June 19 for the second time this year. The guide price is $5.2 million ($1,001 psf), and this will be an owner’s sale.
The property, located in District 28, was first put up for auction for the first time this year on May 30, also at the guide price of $5.2 million, says Sharon Lee, senior director and head of auction and sales at Knight Frank. Lee is marketing the property.
Sitting on a land plot of 5,195 sq ft and with a built-up area of 5,200 sq ft, the house has eight bedrooms spread across three levels, which Lee says will serve large families well.
The first level has two bedrooms, a toilet and a maid’s room, living and dining areas, as well as a kitchen. On the second level, there are a “huge” en-suite master bedroom, two bedrooms that share a common bathroom, and a family area, according to Knight Frank. The third level, too, has a master bedroom, two bedrooms, and a family area.

The property is in a quiet cul-de-sac, sitting on higher land in a pleasant residential area with easy access to major expressways like the Central Expressway, says Knight Frank. It is also near malls such as Greenwich V and The Seletar Mall, which is less than 19 minutes away by foot.
Lee shares that there has been interest in this property. She believes...
