SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - The most profitable deal during the week of Sept 22 to 29 was the sale of a 2,885 sq ft, four-bedroom unit at Ardmore Park in prime District 10. Previously purchased for $5.38 million ($1,865 psf) in January 1997, it was sold for $8.5 million ($2,947 psf) on Sept 24. The 13th-floor apartment thus reaped a 58% profit, or $3.1 million, which is annualised at 1.9% over more than 23 years.
Ardmore Park is a freehold condominium completed in 2001 that comprises 330 units across three 30-storey towers. Developed by Wheelock Properties, the condominium is nestled within a private residential enclave, within minutes’ drive to the shopping belt at Orchard Road and Tanglin Mall.
The transaction is the fifth resale at the development this year. In April, a 8,740 sq ft penthouse, one of six in the development, was sold at $27.65 million ($3,163 psf), earning the seller a 72.8% profit of $11.65 million after a holding period of 22 years.
