“Mature estate with affordable units
TAKE YOUR PICK OF HOMES ranging from HDB flats in the Cheng Soon Crescent area on the left to private shophouses and terrace houses. — ALPHONSUS CHERN
THE Jalan Jurong Kechil district features a blend of mature low-rise HDB flats, shophouses and older condominiums.
Condo prices in the area range from $489 per sq ft (psf) for the 99-year High Oak Condominium at the junction of Toh Tuck Road and Toh Yi Drive to $623 psf for the Grand Regency at Jalan Selanting.
The area marks the end of Bukit Timah Road proper and the start of Upper Bukit Timah Road.
With many older developments that are situated close to one another, the neighbourhood bears little resemblance to its Bukit Timah Road counterparts, with their far more exclusive feel.
Residents can take advantage of the shops and restaurants at Bukit Timah Plaza and Beauty World Centre, as well as the Bukit Timah Food Centre and market located nearby.
Resale HDB flats in the nearby Bukit Batok area have averaged $214.58 psf for three-room units, which range in size from 645 sq ft to 807 sq ft.
An executive flat sold for an average of $236 psf in the second quarter of this year, said property consultancy CB Richard Ellis.
The area is also a short bicycle ride from Bukit Timah Hill and Nature Reserve, which offer outdoor types and fitness fans many options to get up close with Mother Nature.”
