Singapore has long been the destination of choice for foreigners looking to experience the wonders of Southeast Asia in a location which boasts ultra modern facilities, some of the best shopping in the area and is incredibly safe, as well as being the ideal environment to bring up kids due to the simply world class array of great schools on the island. When you combine these attractions with cuisine that has been recognized by some of the world’s top chefs as being truly exceptional, as well as easy access on low cost airlines to some of the most exciting destinations in the region (Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam are only a few) the it’s no wonder that many foreigners decide to purchase property on the island.
And it’s not only foreigners who are deciding to get on the property bandwagon. The pace of development in both the inner regions of Singapore and the ‘heartlands’ has got locals excited as well. There are a number of new developments in these areas that are attracting a lot of attention. One of these is the Forest wood Residences development which has been launched in the Lorong Lew Lian area of Serangoon.
This development is attracting all the right kinds of attention due to the fact that it is priced right due to the 99 year lease option that is available to prospective buyers and the fact that buying in the area is a great investment. If the trends established at other development sin the area are anything to go by Forest woods is going to sell out quickly.
The development is also extremely attractive due to the number of amenities that are within easy walking distance as well as the proximity of a number of public transportation options including Singapore’s incredibly efficient MRT rail system (Serangoon MRT station is only around 5 minutes easy walk from the development).
As far as shopping or retail choice is concerned staying at the new CDL development makes a great deal of sense. There are a number of modern malls within east walking distance of the development including NEX, the Upper Serangoon Shopping Center, Heartland Mall and the ICB Shopping Center. The proximity of these malls means that those purchasing units at the development will have easy access to retail outlets such as Cold Storage, Shop & Save, Giant and NTUC. This makes monthly or even daily shopping trips an absolute breeze.
Those with kids can be assured that there is an enormous choice when it comes to educational options. There are a number of international schools in the area, including the Australian International School and the Stamford American International School. There are also a myriad of home grown Singaporean schools to choose from – all boasting what has been recognized as some of the best standards of education in the world.
For foodies an apartment at Forestwood Residences puts them within easy reach of the famous Chomp Chomp Food Center which has an exceptional reputation for some of the best ‘hawkers market’ type meals in Singapore. There are also numerous Western style restaurants in the area which provide ample opportunity for those who want to explore different cuisines. Late night entertainment is also found in abundance.
For those who wish to explore the opportunity to purchase one of the units at Forest woods by CDL there are numerous choices. Apartments ranging from one to four bedrooms are available and there are 500 units to choose from. The development is 12 stories high and will boast some of the most exceptional views in Singapore due to the low rise nature of the surrounding neighborhood – a fact which will also allow for cooling breezes to flow over the apartment development.
Forest woods also boast all the modern amenities that any Singaporean condominium should have. A barbecue area makes entertaining a breeze and the pool and kiddies pool provides ample opportunity for the family (and friends) to enjoy some quality time together. A gym and yoga room, as well as a sundeck and viewing deck mean that keeping fir and relaxing is easier than ever before. The kids will also love the playground.
For those who want to invest in a great lifestyle in one of Singapore’s most exciting neighborhoods then Forest woods is the perfect choice.
