18, 2011 For Rent
Units are available for rent at various times.
email@example.com Tel: +65 9668 6468.
Client: Single lady.
Wanted: 3-bedroom, over 1400 sq. ft, $2,300,
newer condos in expat area like Maplewoods.
Near Raffles Place as she entertains and does not want to drive home.
Depressed after seeing some units with odd coloured lifts and terrible furnishing with
company's realtor. Her budget was really low for a 3-bedroom. Maplewood's cheapest 3-bedroom was $2,700 unfurnished as at Aug 20, 2000. Expat boss cared enough to phone her during the hot Saturday afternoon viewing to
recommend Symphony Heights.
None available at $2,300. Will need to go to Upper Bukit Timah condos.
House-hunting on Saturday
August 20, 2000.
Meet at Orchid Inn Hotel
3+1 1300sq. ft $2900.
Dark brown wooden floor boards, dark green slats in balcony with unblocked views of Great
Eastern Mansions and Botanic Gardens. Black long bath and floor tiles in master
bathroom & bright yellow kitchen cabinets did not agree with Caucasian single.
The Landlord may paint the cabinets white, if the rent is right.
3+1 1400sq. ft $3000
Unique Olympic-length rectangular swimming pool. Ceramic-tiled floor and small
Did not appear attractive after seeing Parc Palais and Hume Park I. Does not evoke
the tingling feeling of "this is it".
Hume Park I
3+1 1500 sq.ft $2500 fully furnished.
Blk 5. 5th floor.
Grey and white kitchen cabinets & stainless steel sink, white cooker hood and hob of
Hume Park I seem ordinary when
compared to the
earth-colured cabinets, greyish black streaked granite-like counter top, white porcelain
dual basin sinks and earth coloured marble counter top of sinks with new white long baths
in the bathrooms of Parc Palais.
3+1 1507 sq.ft, $3000 fully furnished with quality furntiure. Blk 55, 9th floor. Corner.
Extremely good views of nature from master bedroom and living area, being on hill
top and corner unit.
4+1 1700sq.ft $2800. Block 55. Good nature views, being the 9th floor,
but master bedroom faces a building on one side.
3+1 1550 sq.ft $2500
Blk 43. Low floor, big balcony but faces tennis court.
3+1 1335sq.ft $2300 (left of image, below)
Lobby J. Low floor, big balcony but faces tennis court too. Didn't want
to hear balls (tennis ones) bouncing.
The balcony is a selling point
in both Southaven I and II. Most Caucasian expats want to live in units facing the
Bukit Timah Nature Reserve which is a walking or hiking distance from the main gate.
Sommerville Park was the odd man out. The other condos are less than 5
years old, with Parc Palais being the newest.
Three condos suitable. The top choice was Parc Palais. Although
impressed with Sommerville Park, the black long baths and lemon coloured kitchen cabinets
were now too gaudy for most Westerners used to pastel colours.
Hume Park I was 2nd choice.
It is tough being a single as the housing allowance is usually meant for 2-bedroom.
She wanted a 3-bedroom as there would be space for the furniture.
The Parc Palais 3-bedroom had beautiful city and green tree views from the living to the
master bedroom. The Owner wanted $2,800.
She found a 4-bedroom Parc Palais for $2,300 partially furnished. It had a 4th room
as study, but this could be used for her own closet. She really has lots of
furniture and it was just good timing to get a 4-bedroom for $2,300.
Many agents charge a fee for rental
budgets below $2,500.
One agent refused to show his apartment unless I get my commission from the Tenant. 2 agents turned up late, one being delayed by the Owner.
Another refused to call the Owner in China as she put in a low offer of $2,000. Her
boss had told her that everything is negotiable.
Subdivisions (condo & house details) has some of the details
of the advertised condos.
