Benjamin Sheares Bridge facing Ancilla block
A picturesque condo to retire and smell the roses.

Costa Rhu - Ancilla block units, less than 6 levels high in the     #...-06 series , have a fantastic Kallang River mouth and sea views just under the Benjamin Sheares bridge. Note the "horizontal bar" on top of window. This is the longest bridge in Singapore, the Benjamin Sheares bridge,  with busy traffic to and fro Suntec City and the Changi Airport.

Traffic noise is audible if you invest in units above the sixth floor in Ancilla #...-06 series. The master bedroom has a crystal clear view of the clean Kallang River. No problem getting a tenant if the Landlord is not asking a high rent as the unit is 990 sq. ft and will suit expats with less than $3,000 rental budget. It has no balcony and no private lift lobby but who cares when one sees tranquil nature daily?
