Condos near downtown Orchard Road with over 2000 sq ft are in great demand by expatriates and therefore the rentals are higher. Some examples are shown in this webpage.
0907singapore_flag_gif.gif (9239 bytes)March 1, 2011. FOR RENT
Regency Park, 4+1 3650 sq. ft, Renovated, $15,000. Tel: +65 9668-64668 now!
Regency Park: Study or family area
Regency Park, Blk 11
, 3+1 around 3200 sq. ft $10,500.

High floor, Apartment views from the balcony. Note family area has study table and closet on the right.  Powder room in background. 

Air conditioner compressor sited in balconies of the living area, master and two bedrooms.   Bedroom 2 is dark because the air conditioner compressor obstructs light from the balcony ledge. 

Expats who are not noise sensitive will not mind this unit as air conditioner compressors are sited outside the bedrooms and living area, at the balcony.

Owners may need to re-consider the advice of air conditioner contractors who will say that it will be cooler if the air conditioning piping is shorter by locating compressors next to the bedrooms than at the utility area. 
Regency Park: Original layout of family or study area, without cabinets
Regency Park, Blk 9
, 3+1 around 3200 sq. ft $11,000.

High floor, unobstructed green tree views.  Note bigger family area and dining table and chairs.  This family area is converted into a study area for expats who want a 4th bedroom.

Unit looks brighter and quieter as the air conditioning compressors are sited in the utility/maid's room area.
Nathan Court and an adjoining bungalow has been sold for re-development but the future construction is at the end of Nathan Road, junction with River Valley Road and   Regency Park is half way along Nathan Road.

Expected to be rented out fast as the unit has a large green "park" of mature tree view seen from the balcony.  The master bedroom is original in layout but the green tree view from the balcony with no apartments seen when waking up in the morning, makes one feel as if one is living in the suburbs or tropical rainforest with sparrows as visitors and that feeling appeals to most European expat wives.  
Regency Park: modern kitchen
Regency Park, Blk 11.
  Stainless steel cooker hob and greyish speckled counter top add a touch of class.   The light pink cabinet doors brighten the kitchen.  White doors or wooden colours may be preferred by  Caucasian expats. 
Regency Park has spacious living and dining area & big balconies.
Regency Park Blk 9
.   As the family area (study area) in the background) has not been built up with cabinets and the dining area does not have an extra sink (on right hand side, as in Blk 11), the dining area appears more spacious.  The living area of light brown marble is very spacious in both apartments.
1.  23rd storey penthouse with panoramic city views 6+1 6,000 sq. ft $20,000.

Brand new 5,7,9 Holt Road 4-bedroom condos
View from 23rd floor of Regency Park penthouse. Brand new 5, 6 ,7 Holt Road brand new condos (foreground) are strong competitors. Note the greyish Fraser Suites serviced apartments (background) and numerous new River Valley Road condos as competitors for rentals.

3.  Regency Park, 4+1, from $12,000 for higher floors. 3+1 units Singapore Regency Park has big balconies. Spring Grove is popular too.available. Expat favoured Regency Park and Spring Grove condos near downtown Orchard Road:

REGENCY PARK, Block 9 with big balconies, faces pool and Nathan Road going to River Valley Road, Valley Park condos and the Great World Shopping Mall.

The high floors have fantastic city views and some greenery views. Big swimming pools. 

Block 3 will be 4-storeys with lifts and usually 3-bedroom units.

Regency Park: High rise blockCompetitors for spacious 4+1 bedrooms:
Leonie Condotel. Lucky Towers (92 units, upgraded), Beverly Hill (86 units), Horizon Tower (210 units), Orchard Bel-Air (71 units). The strong competitors are the newer condos. 

Occupancy rate: Around 90%. If you visit in the evening, the swimming pool is full of Caucasian children swimming and boys cycling. Caucasians just love the green environment and big balconies. Many taxis available. A 20-min walk to Orchard Road.

Investment potential: Freehold. Many units have worn out bathrooms and kitchen cabinets/tops.  Good units are the high floors in Block 9, facing greenery and not having apartment views, but just unblocked views.  Low floors tend to be dark. 

Characterized by big balconies and spacious bedrooms targeting expats with over $7,000 rental budget for the 3-bedroom of 2260 sq. ft . Higher floors have unblocked city/green tree views.

3-minute drive to Orchard Road/Raffles Place. 5-minute bus to Overseas Family and International Singapore School schools in Paterson Road.
Spacious 3 or 4-bedroom units with big balconies and unblocked city views. Units have been in great demand and prospective tenants have put up with lower standards of finishes.

The maid's room is bigger than most new condos and houses.  Many Caucasians feel uncomfortable for the nanny to live in very small room of less than 80 sq. feet.

Expat enclave with many young Caucasian children.  Many taxis available anytime. Cycling track away from cars, big playground, decent sized pool. Big BBQ area near pool.

Large semi-circular  balcony around 200 sq. ft can accommodate private BBQ parties and the BBQ set.  Picture of a Big spacious semi-circular balcony of Regency Park at David's webpage

Dated look with wear and tear evident in the bathrooms, door and kitchen cabinets.  

Many units have been remodeled but somehow the interior design in a few units is not compatible with  Caucasian taste.

The kitchen is spacious but the cabinets may be dated.

Dark bedroom 2 between the master and 3rd bedroom in 3+1 3200 sq. ft units.

An expatriate from New York with a small child feels that the low walled balconies may lead to his child climbing over and falling down. See house hunting for penthouse.

The management will not permit grilles to be erected on balconies.  In any case, Caucasians dislike the 'prison image' of grilled balconies.  Sliding doors are installed with locks as a child safety factor.

Yong An Park penthouse has big floor areas of 4600 sq. ft including roof terrace.
Yong An Park duplex 
4+1, 4600 sq. ft. 

Light brown
marble floor, small balcony off
the dining area.  Master bedroom and 2 other bedrooms.  Upstairs, there is a huge bedroom going out to a grey tarred roof terrace (800 sq. ft). 
Apartment views as the River
Valley Road city location is heavily built up. 

The maid's room is air conditioned for guests.  Excluding the roof terrace, the built-in area is 3800 sq. ft.

Yong An Park is popular with Caucasians who want big living area and bedrooms near Orchard Road. 

Units with Singapore River
Views are rented  up quickly. 

The rent per sq. ft  is lower than those of Leonie Condotel and the Regency Park.  

However, Regency Park is
most popular of the condos mentioned here.

Picture - Yong An Park penthouses

Leonie Condotel
Top favourite of Caucasians expats.  Mostly city views.  Rent for the 3+study+maid from $10,000.  Kitchen is dark but has air conditioning.

The Valley Park Condo PENTHOUSE  has a resort ambience.  The classy lift lobby with its marble flooring and the newness of the bathrooms and kitchen cabinets. 

However the duplex penthouse 3+big family + maid, 3500 sq. ft has a very small bedroom 3 (single bed) and odd-shaped bedroom 2.  The balcony is big semi-circle but the dining area cannot accommodate a big dining table with 8 chairs.   The big family area is outside the master bedroom on lower level and will be noisy if it is converted into a computer study area.  The kitchen has 2 windows and is not as dark as the kitchens in the smaller units of Valley Park.  Dark kitchen is the main complaint of Caucasians.

Grange Hts penthouse: fully renovated high quality marble tiled master bedroom.
Grange Heights penthouse 4+1
4600 sq. ft  $9,000.  100% renovated.

It has a beautiful maroon-earth coloured tiled roof terrace which has a wooden deck plus water point for barbecue and a jacuzzi bath.  Feels top of the world.  The Takashimaya shopping centre and Orchard Road is seen from the roof terrace.

Quality finishes in the 100% renovated apartment.  Image shows the master bedroom with shower stall (framed by white plastic).  A frame-less stall will add a touch of class.  Removal of the original black kitchen cabinets since there is a brand new brown cabinet at one side will have made the kitchen much bigger.  

Suits expats with large families as there is separation of the bedrooms from the 2 family areas and the roof terrace to entertain guest. 

8 flights of steps go to various rooms and living area, making it appear like a 4-level penthouse.  No balcony.  Apartment views.

The main complaint is that the condo looks "aged" from the exterior although the pool and lift lobbies have had been upgraded. 

Tall people may have to duck their head to avoid hitting the low ceiling passages connecting the lift lobbies.  Great location.  Value for money.  Rent at $9,000.
