Words by Michelle Yee
One of Singapore’s top developers, Bukit Sembawang Estates Limited (BSEL), has rolled out its prized residential development, 8 St Thomas, strategically located in the heart of District 9, along River Valley Road off Orchard Road. The completed 250-unit freehold development, designed by world renowned firm DP Architects, has already been awarded several accolades for its stunning design including the China Real Estate Design Award (CREDAWARD) Silver in 2019, and both the New York Design Award (Gold), and the Asia Property Awards Best Luxury Condo Development & Best Condo Architectural Design (Singapore) in 2018.
For homebuyers looking to purchase a new property for immediate occupancy, as well as for investors looking to invest their money in a property for rental yield, 8 St Thomas will undoubtedly make an ideal choice. Here’s a look at some of the reasons why.
An Attractive Long-Term Investment With Potential For Capital Appreciation
Offering a good mix of one-to four-bedroom apartments, including four-bedroom dual-key units ranging from 441 to 1,755 sq ft in floor area, each unit has been meticulously designed and outfitted with premium finishes and fittings from reputable brands such as Villery and Boch, Grohe, and Miele, to ensure an unrivalled living experience.
For the discerning few, they can consider the 2,422 sq ft duplex penthouse on the 35th floor that boasts four ensuite bedrooms, gourmet kitchen and private lift. It offers unrivalled panoramic views of the city skyline and Marina Bay Sands.
Flexible And Attractive Payment Schemes From Just 10% Deposit*
To help more homebuyers achieve their dream of owning a unit at 8 St Thomas, the developers has rolled out a couple of flexible and attractive payment schemes to cater to different needs. For instance, the Stay-and-Pay Scheme* allows buyers to just pay a down payment of 20 per cent when they purchase the unit. Buyers who opt for this scheme can move in right away.
Alternatively, keen homebuyers can go with the Reservation Scheme*, where they can reserve their desired unit with a 10 per cent deposit.
*Terms and conditions apply.
Rare Freehold Property At An Affordable Price Tag
Another reason to consider purchasing a unit at 8 St Thomas is its rare freehold tenure that sits on almost one hectare of sprawling land with plenty of social spaces dotted around the development for residents’ enjoyment. And due to limited supply of land in Singapore, 8 St Thomas looks poised to be a good investment.
Furthermore, at averagely $1.58 million for a one-bedder, $1.83 million for a two-bedder, $3.38 million for a three-bedder, and $5.38 million for a four-bedder, prices for 8 St Thomas—situated at a highly sought-after address—are considerably reasonable in the prime neighbourhood.
Prime Location And Easy Accessibility
Accessibility is an important consideration when it comes to purchasing a property. From 8 St Thomas, getting to the other parts of the island will be a breeze, thanks to the development’s convenient location in the heart of the city. There are two MRT stations: Somerset and the upcoming Great World (expected to be operational in 2021), both located within walking distance of 8 St Thomas. Residents who drive can make the most of nearby expressways including Central Expressway (CTE) and the Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE) to get to the other parts of the city, with the Central Business District and Marina Bay Financial Centre located just a short drive away.
Enjoy The Perfect Balance Of Nature And Modern Conveniences
Located close to several good schools such as River Valley Primary School, Raffles Girls’ Secondary School, St Margaret’s Primary School, Anglo-Chinese School, Chatsworth International School and more, families with school-going children will have plenty of options to choose from when it comes to selecting a school for their little ones. For daily necessities and other shopping needs, residents can head to nearby malls such as Great World City and the Orchard Road shopping belt. Foodies will also be pleased to know that there are plenty of dining options available within the vicinity including Killiney Road and Robertson Quay, from artisan cafes to restaurants. Despite its central location and close proximity to a slew of modern conveniences, residents can also enjoy the tranquility that being close to nature brings, as it is surrounded by lush greenery.
Communal Spaces For Get-Togethers
A total of 11 sky terraces has been incorporated in the development to encourage social gatherings, lounging and reading—a rare find as most new developments these days do away with social and communal spaces to make way for more saleable areas. To create a conducive environment to promote such activities, each sky terrace has been equipped with dining facilities and lots of lush greenery.
So for those seeking a property that is of a freehold tenure, allows for immediate occupancy, and offers a flexible deferred payment scheme, as well as convenience and connectivity, 8 St Thomas is one of the rare properties available in the market that ticks all the boxes.
