Tropical Bliss at 1 Surin Avenue

One Surin is a sublime, nature-filled suburban refuge on #1 Surin Avenue, District 19. Situated in a tranquil neighborhood full of private landed homes, the low-density freehold development is conceptualized to contain only 27 terraced houses, plus a host of communal facilities.

The former location of Tan Moh Hong Crocodile Farm, the stunning site still maintains its idyllic appeal in the midst of all the urbanization. The fertile greens create a beautiful refuge away from the din of the busy city. To enhance its bucolic charm, the grounds are further spruced up with themed gardens and flowing waterscapes, achieving the ambience of a tropical paradise.

The site is strategically located midway beween the Kovan and Serangoon MRT Stations, and in close proximity to many schools, supermarkets, malls and main roads. It will take you only a few minutes to drive to Upper Serangoon Road or Tampines Road, and just moments to get to the KPE, CTE, or PIE.

Your New Home at One Surin

Every home in One Surin is a personal oasis: three levels of ingeniously designed architecture surrounded by a landscaped tropical environment. The clean, vertical lines stand out against the greenery, while the warm, brown wood tones complement the natural charm.

A truly comfortable dwelling needs to have sufficient room for everyone, as well as a floor plan that makes the best use of the space. That’s why each home has commodious family areas, four light-filled bedrooms, plus a study. All these and more are efficiently planned in a built-up area between 3,681 and 5,263 square feet ( 342 to 489 square meters).

In addition to the three floors, units also have a basement with a 2-car garage, as well as an open roofdeck. To facilitate mobility, each home will have its very own lift. There’s much you can do with the open roofdeck: turn it into a terrace where you can have al fresco dinners with the family, or make it a sunny rooftop lounge.

You’ll have deluxe interiors to be proud of: an airy living room, a partially furnished kitchen, a spacious dining area, and wide picture windows. The full-length windows admit a generous amount of natural light to illumine your home. To maintain your privacy, windows are fitted with diagonally-oriented screens that allow you to easily see out while preventing others from gazing in. The indoors will be so divine, you won’t mind staying home all the time.

If you love the outdoors as well, this arrangement will work perfectly for you. Not only is the development nestled by foliage; your own home will also come with private enclosed space that you can turn into a patio or a garden. Most units even have a front lawn. For certain units, the PES has a sunken area just outside the living room, which you can customize into your own private spa.

A Life of Wholeness and Wellness

One Surin is a safe, enclosed community with its own guard house. You can live at peace without worrying about your family. As with all top-notch residential compounds, One Surin is loaded with perquisites and privileges that will make your life not just enjoyable, but extraordinary. To complement the environs, the development has themed gardens and elegantly designed water features. Among these are a fern garden, an herb garden, a butterfly walk, ponds, and an open lawn.
These days, everybody looks for a pool where they can wind down and relax. This is one of the things that One Surin’s resort atmosphere can guarantee. It has a 25 by 3.2 meter lap pool, edged by a sunbathing deck and a cabana. It also has a wading pool and a massage pool, right next to the shower rooms.

Plan a party or just spend time with family at the Barbecue Pavillion overlooking the herb garden. There’s lots of room for everyone, with the adjoining timber deck. Afterward, let the kids loose at the playground or the lawn.

Don’t forget your health! Each morning, spend time reflecting in the meditation deck so you can have a productive day. At the end of the day, do a few laps in the pool or sweat it out at the outdoor exercise area.

All In the Neighborhood

Whenever you’d like to grab a bite or go shopping, you can easily go to Heartland Mall or NEX Megamall. Also nearby is the Serangoon Shopping Centre.

There are a handful of parks in the vicinity, such as Serangoon Park, Surin Avenue Park, Maplewood Park, Sunshine Park, and Richards Avenue Park. You can go for some jogging or cycling, or perhaps play a round of catch with your kids. The nearby Serangoon Stadium has a Swimming Complex too.

What about schools? Within a few kilometers are a lot of renowned private schools and public schools, from preschool all the way through college. There’s St. Gabriel’s, Maris Stella, Holy Innocents, Zhonghua, Peicai, Yuying, Xinghua, Yangzheng, Paya Lebar Methodist Girls’ School, and Australian International School. There’s also Serangoon Junior College Nanyang Junior College, DPS International School, Dimensions International College, Uptrend, and Stansfield College. For your littlest ones, there’s Modern Montessori, Camberley Pre-school, and TPBC Kindergarten.

Don’t Let This Rare Opportunity Pass You By

Freehold properties aren’t that common in Singapore, and especially scarce are freehold landed homes. A landed home is always a good investment, since there’s only one direction for land values: appreciation. Within the next few years, the country’s population will boom to seven million, so this kind of property will even be rarer by then. So don’t pass on this excellent opportunity. This is the kind of home that you will have for a lifetime, and it will be something you can pass down to your children.

One Surin is a development of Urban Lofts Private Limited, and is up for TOP by the end of 2017. These beautiful, spacious, tropical resort-type homes are very nicely priced; you can own one for as low as S$ 3,300,000.
