Living close to Orchard Road where most expat wives have lunch and where teenagers assemble.  As car ownership is exorbitant, most expats  need to commute by bus or taxi in Singapore. Therefore living near downtown may be important for most of them.

2-storey townhouses with a communal pool, children's pool,  24-hour security, own covered car park lot and tranquility.

Caucasian family enclave.  Low density of 33 units. Value for money.  Big pool amongst greenery.

A big pool, plenty of sunshine for sun lovers and greenery. 

It is convenient for friends to visit you. Suits expat families who want the working spouse to go to work later and come home earlier from work if the office is at Raffles Place, Suntec City or Shenton Way. 

The subway ride and bus to the National University of Singapore  or Science Park takes around 40 minutes. 

Some Australian fathers prefer to live at Chancery Grove as the small children save a lot of time travelling to the Overseas Family School in around 10-minutes by bus. 

The Australian School is a 15-min bus ride from Chancery Grove townhouses. 

Low density and low rise.

Some expats don't want to live in an area surrounded by high rises and this Chancery Grove area has no high buildings nearby.  

Quiet countryside greenery ambience.

Interiors:  The living and dining areas are finished with beautifully polished Italian marble.

Bedrooms have parquet flooring.  Marble counter tops in bathrooms.  One long bath in the master bathroom.  Water heaters in bathrooms and kitchen.

Audio intercom.  TV, microwave, cable hook up may be provided.

Your own private car parking lot.

Many Caucasian children. There are at least two pre-schools nearby. 


A 15-min walk to the Novena subway, but there is a bus (No. 603) from Chancery Lane,  outside the townhouses going to Orchard Road & Overseas Family School in 5-10 minutes.

No tennis court.

Some expats do not like the smaller master bedroom and living areas. However, newer townhouses in prime areas near downtown are characterized by smaller bedrooms and living areas. It will be difficult to accommodate a king-sized bed with 2 bedside tables and leave you some spaces. 

Type of tenants: 
Families with small children wanting houses near Orchard Road & Paterson Rd (where the International Singapore School & Overseas Family Schools are) and a swimming pool.  There is a BBQ area and a big pool deck area for social gatherings.

4th bedroom. The basement of some floor plans has a room which is air conditioned and has a bathroom nearby. It can be used as a maid's room or a guest or a study room. Or just use as a storeroom.


Of all the four cluster houses in this neighbourhood, the Chancery Grove townhouses rent lower than the others.  

The 3 competitors are The Compass at Chancery,  Barker Road cluster townhouses, the upscale 5-bedroom cluster townhouses called Lotus At Barker with rents from S$10,000.  

A pleasant 10-min walk to the Novena subway along the leafy Chancery Lane and Chancery Grove townhouses are real nice, being near the colonial houses and cycling jungles of Malcolm Park. 

There is the Cold Storage supermarket near the Chancery Hill/Dunearn Road junction, a 2-min drive away.

Case study: Water heaters in new condos.

"We have already signed the lease," said one exasperated expatriate to the Asia USA realtor who was not involved in the lease.  In the euphoria of renting a brand new condo, some expats and realtors overlook the fact that the Developers have not provided water heaters.  An example was the Kew Green townhouses.

Once the tenancy agreement is signed, the Landlord is unlikely to agree to install water heaters. Many Caucasian expats want hot water for the kitchen too.

We had one case of a New Zealander wife renting a United Engineer's Square Condo, using the hot water to wash dishes. The heat had melted the rubber ring of the sink stopper. The hot water "sterilized" the plates but the rubber ring melted.

In Singapore, hot water supply to the kitchen is uncommon as the locals don't use hot water to wash cutlery.  Dishwashers are not common too.
