Developer Amcorp Global Limited (“formally known as TEE Land Limited”) is setting new standards in luxury living with one of their latest developments, 35 Gilstead, designed like a resort home for ultimate comfort and relaxation.
Words by Michelle Yee
There is no denying the allure of city living — apart from its close proximity to the Central Business District and Marina Bay Financial Centre, the area offers convenient access to the famed Orchard Road shopping belt, a plethora of good schools as well as a plethora of entertainment and dining options. These are just some of the reasons why properties in the Core Central Region are highly sought-after.
For new home buyers looking to put down roots in the city or seeking out good investment opportunities, 35 Gilstead, an exclusive freehold development in District 11 is one you should consider.
35 Gilstead has been designed to resemble a luxury resort, comprising only 70 apartments, which is perfect for home buyers seeking utmost privacy, luxury and tranquility yet do not wish to compromise on convenience.
Modern Spacious Interiors
Comprising a good mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments as well as penthouse units ranging from 474 sq ft to 1, 649 sq ft, some notable qualities of these units include its voluminous and generous layouts, private lifts and high ceilings, which add to its resort-like feel. The units on the first floor — also called the patio units, boast ceiling heights of 4.1 metres, allowing plenty of natural light into the house despite its location. The loft apartments, on the other hand, feature even higher ceiling heights of 5.7 metres. Meanwhile, the ceiling heights on the typical floors are at 3.1 metres, which is still higher than your average condo.
Apart from the high ceilings, the other aspects of the interiors are equally impressive. The palpable sense of space is further enhanced by the floor-to-ceiling glass windows which not only lend an air of modernity to the home, but it also allows an abundance of natural light and fresh air in — giving it a spacious and breezy feel. Coupled with timber, quartz and marble elements around the apartment, the result is one that exudes quiet elegance. Lastly, all units come fully equipped with premium fittings and appliances from renowned brands likes Hansgrohe, Gaggenau, Bosch and Snaidero.
Live Well, Live Smart
35 Gilstead has also been designed with smart living in mind, featuring a home security and automation system (VIDA Gateway) that will allow residents to not only remotely monitor the safety of their homes but also control and automate their appliances for utmost convenience. Notable features include a pan and tilt camera; a finger print or a user password; and a meet panel for convenient admission of guests.
For leisure and relaxation pursuits, the development itself is akin to a boutique holiday resort, providing facilities such as a 25-metre infinity lap pool, sun decks, outdoor pavilions and a gymnasium.
