Remodeled 2-storey conservation historical townhouses inhabited by British officers when Singapore was part of the British empire. Also called "Colonial houses".  Units were renovated in 1992 and are being upgraded.  Located at: Towner, McNair and May Road, 2-min drive to Newton and Novena subways and 5-min drive to Suntec City. The new Boon Keng subway, a 2-minute walk, may be completed in 2003. This means you can go anywhere in Singapore via the subway.
Wooden floor boards and large verandahs - Caucasians appreciate Townerville Wooden floor boards for the bedrooms instead of parquet or carpet, spacious master bedroom characterise conservation homes of the British colonial era.  A big verandah (balcony) is much appreciated by Caucasian expatriates.


Singapore. A pretty and neat backyard of Townerville 4-bedroom
A "green" courtyard of a 4-bedroom townhouse. Bring nature indoors make for pleasant living in this unit.  The 4-bedroom townhouse does not have a sundeck on level 2 as in the 3-bedroom (pink ceramic tiles, top right). You can see how pretty the Townerville townhouse can be, if you have good paintwork, potted plants to bring in nature and maintain it as in the picture of the backyard of a 4-bedroom above. 
Singapore Townerville 3-bedroom and pretty backyard of one 4-bedroom unit
3-bedroom unit's backyard with sunbathing terrace seen from the 4-bedroom unit's 2nd floor. Some units are pretty as they are well cared and painted for by the Caucasian tenants. In the 3-bedroom units, there are 3 bedrooms upstairs.  No long bath tubs but showers. The master bedroom has an attached bathroom while the other two bedrooms share a bathroom.

They may face some HDB apartments but don't expect good views from houses.
Singapore colonial houses - Townerville's sunbathing terrace on level 2Sunbathing terrace at the back on level 2.  This area can also be used as an outdoor barbecue or potted plant area.   

A lovely spiral staircase, characteristic of the heritage building of 80 years ago, leads to the courtyard on ground floor.
Singapore Townerville. Large and long courtyard (backyard).
As there is no proper maid's room, a bamboo chick can wall off the large utility area to the left of the courtyard,  beside the back door. There's a maid's bathroom near the back door.

The courtyard (backyard) is quite spacious. A mobile long bath tub can be installed there as well if you want a bath tub, to bathe under the stars or sun. You can keep a big dog as well. Or just put potted plants to bring nature indoors (see picture on top of page).
Singapore.  Townerville 3-bedroom, living area near main door Singapore. Townerville 4-bedroom  ceramic-tiled dining area
The picture shows the living area of a 3-bedroom townhouse tiled with white ceramic tiles.  Wooden rafters characteristic of heritage houses built in the colonial days of Singapore.  Abundant and lush landscaping outside the house with sufficient car parking lots.  Modern air conditioning. Tranquil surroundings to stimulate your creativity. 

A small garden plot at the  front of the house may be important for Caucasian expats who want some green plants or create a mini-koi-pond garden.
Huge dining area in the 4-bedroom colonial houses but the smaller units have good-sized floor areas. Light-coloured white or grey ceramic tiles for the flooring. The master bedroom does not front the main road but the bathroom is not that big compared to Niven Road heritage pre-war townhouses.

Profile of Expat tenants

A large community of mainly younger Caucasians who don't need a long bath tub.  Expatriates who really need a long bath and air conditioned living and dining rooms will not find these Townerville colonial houses suitable unless they are willing to rent standing bath tubs which may be installed in the long corridor at the back courtyard.
