Expats with large dining sets may love this very private 6-unit apartment in a upper class low rise landed property residential area with many houses and a large expat population.

6500 (2 units). 2 bedrooms with attached baths.  No construction nearby.
2 years old. Commands a higher than market rental and >50% occupied by Caucasians.  Balconies and lush landscaping with water features.  Agent was 45 minutes late, delaying all other viewings. Agents must plan properly as this condo was nearly given a miss.


3.45pm Nassim Park, off Orchard Road.  European enclave. Resort ambience. Great location. 4+1 2100 6800 Low rise, low density. Agent says Europeans but not Americans appreciate this condo.  Considered too dark as windows are small.

3+1 (duplex)

4+1 (one level).
1600 5000 fully furnished NEW, near Robertson Quay.  Several Caucasian expats.  Small gym with 3 pieces of equipment. 

With toddlers, it is extremely difficult to find a new 4+1 child-proofed condo near downtown for $6,000 but there are some away from downtown. Spiral staircases, stairs and open balconies as in Aspen Heights and Palm Spring are concerns of the father of the toddlers.   Kim Yam Heights have solid corriodor walls and no balconies and therefore deemed toddler safe.  But Caucasians and love the balconies as apartments without balconies are considered claustrophobic.   Some families simply put up a wire netting over the lower half of balcony grilles to prevent toddlers from slipping through or close the sliding doors, as in Pebble Bay.
