Especially those near clusters of well-know primary schools. Such as Nanyang Primary School, Anglo-Chinese Primary, Singapore Chinese Girls’ primary, Methodist Girls’ Primary and Raffles Girls’ Primary. No prizes guessing where this cluster hails from.
The Bukit Timah area has long been known as the prime district due to its proximity to schools and exclusive addresses and many huge landed properties. But quite a number of high-rise private condominiums have begin to come up in its midst, and parents eager for higher chances in the balloting for spaces in these schools now have options of moving nearer to their primary school of choice.
Stretching mainly across prime districts 10 and 11, properties along the main Bukit Timah stretch attract the most number of eyeballs, closely followed by those nearer newton and at the other closer to Upper Bukit Timah. Properties on the main stretch include Cluny Park Residences and The Siena. The latter has an added advantage with its proximity to the Botanic Gardens MRT Station.
Near Newtown, where ACS Primary is situated, cluster landed development, The Glyndebourne offers the option of serviced landed housing while the Robin Suites which will be completed in 2016 will attract savvy parents who have their children’s future well-planned ahead of time. The latest property to come up near the Upper Bukit Timah area is KAP Residences, taking over the King Albert Park McDonald’s, placing it near MGS.
A comparison of prices across these areas will show that the main stretch commands the highest prices as it is not only near a number of primary and secondary schools and junior colleges, but also eateries and other amenities. Transport options are more apparent as well. Prices at The Siena and Cluny Park Residences range around $2, 323 to $2, 704 psf, though older condominiums may only go for $1, 700 to $1, 800 psf.
