“Exclusive turf that also draws in food lovers
HUGE TREES with their lush foliage offer shaded seclusion for the good-class bungalows clustered around Yarwood Avenue (centre).– ALPHONSUS CHERN
THE shady Binjai Park area’s exclusiveness is boosted by the presence of the Swiss Club, the Belgian embassy and the British Club nestled deep in the estate.
Narrow winding roads shaded by immense trees lead to large sprawling good-class bungalows along Yarwood Avenue and Binjai Park itself.
Away from the main Bukit Timah Road are many low-rise bungalows and semi-detached houses, and the neighbourhood boasts a cosy, friendly ambience.
One of the main attractions is the Binjai Park cluster of eateries just a stone’s throw away from the turning on to Bukit Timah.
A perennial favourite with many Singaporeans is the Ivins Peranakan restaurant, but there is a wide variety of restaurants to choose from.
Developments in the area include the Binjai Crest cluster housing project, priced at $451 per sq ft (psf) based on transactions in the second quarter.
The 99-year leasehold Gardenvista condominium, which is eight years old, recently transacted at $806 psf, said property consultancy CB Richard Ellis.”
