“A hit with nature lovers and trekkers
NESTLED INTO the side of Bukit Timah Hill on Hindhede Road, The Raintree, a 99-year leasehold condo, is featching $568 psf. — ALPHONSUS CHERN
LUXURIANTLY green, the area in and around Hindhede Drive is a hit with nature lovers who make the most of the proximity of Bukit Timah Nature Reserve.
Large trees and shrubs line the roads criss-crossing the neighbourhood, which has a sleepy feel for most of the day.
This is broken only by groups of trekkers making their way up and down Bukit Timah Hill, Singapore’s highest natural summit.
The area is also a hit with cycling enthusiasts who want to be near the popular Bukit Timah mountain-biking track, which stretches all the way to Mandai.
Besides the soothing presence of the nature reserve and Angsana Park, residents also enjoy the convenience of being a minute’s drive from the Pan Island Expressway as well as the main Bukit Timah Road.
Prices for condominiums in the neighbourhood range from $450 per sq ft (psf) for the 99-year Le Wood project to $568 psf for The Raintree, also 99 years, at the end of Bukit Drive. “
