Good Class Bungalows in Singapore

The Good Class Bungalow (GCB) is the most luxurious type of landed residence in Singapore, its name being a dead giveaway for an obvious upgrade over a regular Bungalow. With a land plot of a minimum 1,400 sqm (15,070 sqft), the Good Class Bungalow has a wealth of space, often encompassing large gardens, swimming pools and other luxury facilities –yes private cinemas and basketball courts are not unheard of here. Stressing their exclusivity in space-scarce Singapore, there are approximately 1000 Good Class Bungalows spread out amongst the authorized strips of land. These GCBs are generally designated within the prime residential districts, District 10 (Nassim Road), District 11 (Eng Neo Avenue), District 21 (Binjai Park) and District 23 (Chestnut Avenue).

The government did this to prevent foreigners from accumulating freehold land in Singapore without special approval by the Singapore Land Authority’s Land Dealings Approval Unit (LDAU). However, under the Global Investor Programme (GIP), exceptions have been made for Permanent Residents that make a certain investment in Singapore. Other reasons may also be considered.
