3000 land? Nice
So long as you arenât along the main road itâs ok.
Use fascina windows
Chelsea Village has nice long driveways, walking distance to MRT and itâs far enough from the main road. Thereâs a playground somewhere there too.
Wide roads. FH

3200 sqf built up, 2530 Sqf land but next to main road, noisy

Seletar Hills looks good, but no MRT. I bought a SD, land 3150 this year at 2.75mil to rebuild.

3150 land 👍🏼

Rebuild a 3000 sqf, how much?

If one is doing an extended renovation or teardown do make friends with your neighbors and leave a contact for them.
Making them feel you care about their welfare prevents nasty complaints. They will send feedback to your builder or you instead of the NEA. Once it’s official it will be worse for you.

Depends, market rate about 250 to 300 for moderate materials. Mine is $270 excluding cabinetry, but with lift, no pool. My built up will be 4950 sf

Jambol is very narrow.. and parking is tight. Nightmare for builders.
But Chelsea is a wide road. Everyone there parks on both sides in the cul de sac. If you buy along the entry road it’s a single white line.
So that’s why even within an estate there are good and bad locations.
Just like the lentor area.
The area closer to the train station is older and has wider roads. But that’s a main thoroughfare and not so safe for kids to play along the road.

 

exactly. I think the immediate situation is much more important. Take countryside for example, there are parking issues that escalated to lawsuits at certain area while other area has plenty of parking. 

 

Some locations has stuff like cul du sacs, or like countryside where they dont terminate the road but built another connecting road for exit. That connecting road has zero houses on both sides so it acts as free parking while providing an alternative exit path. I can get on of my house either turning left or right. 

 

Therefore I don't think wider roads are good actually as wider roads are usually main exit/entry roads... I much prefer quieter and narrower roads as long as can double park and let one car through. Some roads can't even double park...

 

Single white line is usually an alarm bell though... most roads are dotted line unless got people complain until LTA draw single solid white line...

Ya Lor... sigh... but parking is one of the biggest issues actually. Our thread has already one guy who moved out of his landed because of parking.

It’s no joke trying to get in out of your house Everyday if the road is double parked all the time... my immediate neighbour has 4 cars but only one space in driveway. Lucky he is corner terrace and beside him is the connecting road so he Parks his three cars there without disturbing any people.

countryside lanes are already wider than other Lentor lanes.

Countryside transacted deals are almost the same price psf in the past 2-3 years, ie. 1.1-1.2k psf for 2000 land and 1k psf for 2800/3500 land

Wah nice to have a big place designed by yourself. I looked at Dedap area 10 years back. But at the end, living within walking distance of my in laws trump other consideration.

Pool at home (usually a small one) is only good when the kids are young.

I think those that sold are facing the expressway along countryside road. If u can find one at similar price away from expressway, I think it’s a good deal.

Actually it works as you age..
Rather than a fancy roof or other renovations
A pool actually adds value.
A bonsai tree is nice too.

Got lots of selfish people around. For Some the porch is the play area for the grandkids. No cars in the house. All the 3-4 cars all parked outside even though the house can take 3 cars.

Not really true about the pool. Maintenance cost is not cheap. And if it’s not long enough, it’s a fish pond.

For landed, the utmost priority for me are the neighbors. A cb neighbor can ruin everything.

For condo and hdb at least there is still management and town council to do something.

We had a neighbor at my parents place that was nice to everyone in the estate but was super aggressive when someone living in the condo nearby told his drivers to park all the PA plate mini bus along our street to save on parking. It was 5-6 vans. We got fed up and this neighbor had a few vans and car from his business and he blocked the vans from moving out by parking very close to them. Left his cars for a few days until the owner of the mini bus had to call the police.

We then explained to the police that we are neighborly here and park close to each other to maximize space and that if anyone of us needed to move out it was a quick phone call away.

The mini bus owner continued to park and the neighbor continued to block him until he could no longer take it and finally moved his mini buses away.
