Words by Michelle Yee
In land-scarce Singapore, it is common to see high-rise residential buildings built close together, giving some estates, especially those densely populated ones, a narrow, claustrophobic feeling. Hence it is a refreshing to see what Singapore Land Limited (SingLand) has done with Mon Jervois, an exclusive 109-unit residential development located within the prestigious Good Class Bungalow (GCB) enclave of Chatsworth and Bishopgate, and near to various embassies including the High Commission of Brunei Darussalam, Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia, Embassy of the People’s Republic of China, and Malaysia High Commission.
Sitting on a sumptuous plot of land spanning 96,500 sq ft, the striking development, designed by renowned architectural firm Ong&Ong Pte Ltd, is composed of five blocks of intimate low-rise five-storey buildings. And unlike the shoebox units found in most cookie-cutter residential developments these days, the units at Mon Jervois all feature voluminous and generous layouts, and best of all, high ceilings—the ground floor units boasts ceiling heights of 4.7m, thereby creating a bungalow-like feel within a condominium development. The effect of boundless space here is simply refreshing, and the overall vibe blends in perfectly with the neighbouring GCBs.
Modern Spacious Interiors
Offering a good mix of unit types ranging from 1+Study to 4-bedroom apartments of 614 sq ft to 1,981 sq ft, the apartments here are great for singles and even young families and couples starting out. While a typical unit offers higher than normal ceiling heights of 3.3 metres, there is the option for home buyers to opt for the special loft units that come with voluminous ceiling heights of 6.7 metres. And for those looking for something even more luxurious, they can consider one of the 19 penthouses ranging from 1,475 sq ft to 3,003 sq ft with a roof terrace that offers a generous balcony space.
Regardless which unit a home buyer pick, they can be assured that every unit offers floor-to-ceiling glass windows and doors, which not only allow lots of natural light and fresh air in, but they also offer sweeping views of the surrounding greenery and tranquil water features that dominate the landscape, putting one in a relaxed mood the moment they step inside their house. To ensure an unrivalled living experience, the developers have also equipped every unit with premium quality fittings and finishes including appliances from Miele, Hansgrohe, Lauren and high quality kitchen and wardrobe systems.
Unrivalled Facilities Coupled With A Convenient Location
Offering a bevy of recreational facilities, residents can expect to be spoilt for choice when it comes to leisure and relaxation pursuits. They can choose to take a refreshing dip in either the Lap or Jacuzzi pool or go on a relaxing stroll at the Secret Garden Walk. For those who prefer to keep themselves dry, they can make full use of the Golfer’s Green, Hammock Island, and Picnic Lawn. The young ones, too, will have plenty of things to keep them occupied such as the Kid’s Play Zone and Kid’s Rock Wall. With such gorgeous surroundings, one may feel inclined to spend more time outdoors, and with the Sunken BBQ Pavilion, as well as specially designed al fresco dining areas, residents can take the opportunity to organise intimate parties or even just a spontaneous evening dinner in the woods.
Thanks to its prime location in District 10, residents can benefit from the development’s close proximity to a slew of shopping, dining and entertainment precincts, such as the vibrant Orchard Road shopping belt, Great World City, Valley Point, Clarke Quay, Dempsey Hill, and more. For families with school-age children, they can consider top institutions like Crescent Girl’s School and Gan Eng Seng School—both are just a short walking distance away.
Getting to the Central Business District or to the other parts of the city will also be a breeze via major expressways like the CTE, AYE and ECP, which are all located close to the development.
Whether you are looking to acquire a property solely for investment or as a residential home, Mon Jervois is without a doubt an unbeatable choice.
