This is one of three ‘good class bungalow’ plots carved from a larger plot developed by the Keck Seng Group. The residence sits on a minor incline and overlook a pond in the front yard, following the Feng Shui belief of balancing the “mountain” and “water” elements.
The first floor’s living and dining area is a vast and unremitting space given that an unhindered view of the pool and front grass. The munificently balanced kitchen with laundry area is located in the back of the house together with the garage.
A centralized, grouping stairway leads up into the open courtyard directly above the kitchen. To the left, is the master suite with bedroom, walk-in wardrobe and bathroom, while the children’s bedrooms and neighbouring playroom occupy the differing side. In the middle, a multi-purpose family area takes up the front piece, while the back area houses an additional room. From the courtyard, a spiral staircase ascends onto the terrace that can serve as a BBQ or entertainment area where guests can take in the gorgeous views of the neighbouring vegetation.
Munificent use of freedom is what distinguishes this house from others, making it a welcome respite from Singapore’s high-density urban atmosphere.
