- Shuttle bus from house to Yio Chu Kang subway - 5 minutes
- Yio Chu Kang subway to Orchard subway - 20 minutes
- Walk to Paterson School - 10 minutes.
Total travelling time to Orchard Road: at least35 minutes.
Drivevia Central Expressway by car or taxi - 15 minutes. School bus expected to be around 30-45 minutes depending on number of stops. Some maids bring the children to the nearest subway/bus pick-up point to wait for the school bus if the bus does not ply inside the Lentor Villa estate. You need to find out the school bus pick up points. Distance to Paterson Road: much depends on whether you travel by the Central Expressway or via Thomson Road with many traffic light stops. Will need to measure the distance in km if wish. Please let me know or I can ask the Paterson School what is the bus travelling time?

My family & I (3 school-aged children) may be relocating to Singapore very shortly. Though I've seen many advertisements I found yours the most interesting because of the keywords: "big families" & "affordable". Your advertisement for ID # 88077. Item: 8 min walk Newton subway, American Club, Eliz Ht 4+1. Price: S$ 6,000, renovated, maisonette. Description: US expat with big families, looking for spacious 2-level apartment walking distance to Orchard Rd/American Club/Newton subway, call agent Asia USA 9668 6468. Details of condo, visit www.asiahomes.com ELIZABETH HEIGHT REPORT. Owners renting, call/fax/email. Phone: 9668 6468, 254 3326 Fax: 256 0501. URL: Asia USA Realty: affordable homes for expats
I do not have all the specifics of my expat package yet, but I will within the next few days. I can't imagine it influencing my decision though, for what we want to pay in rent. Frankly, I would just like a nice home in a nice area for teenagers that's within walking distance of mass transit.
The brand new 3-storey houses are closer to a nice American home concept but older condo with 4 bedrooms rent from S$6,000 in down town areas. Living in North, West or South Singapore houses may save S$3,000 - $4,000/month and this amount of money can be used to rent a car (S$2,200/month for medium sized ones). This car will be driven by the non-working spouse while the working spouse takes the subway to down town to work. Expats with large families and a housing allowance (not restricted only to house rentals) may find this house+car package more practical than living in down town area in small condos.
A good realtor should be able to structure a car+house package with a responsive Landlord. Do contact Asia USA realtor Colleen Simmonds (firstname.lastname@example.org) or David Sing (email@example.com).
