Belgravia Ace Location Review
Belgravia Ace is in the Seletar Hills estate, a peaceful enclave of low-rise landed houses. The area is within a short driving distance to Ang Mo Kio, Sengkang, Hougang and Serangoon, which means that residents can take advantage of the retail and dining options in these neighbourhoods.
Belgravia Ace is located off Ang Mo Kio Ave 5, which is a major road connecting the Ang Mo Kio and Hougang neighbourhoods. The Central Expressway (CTE), Seletar Expressway (SLE) and Tampines Expressway (TPE) are within a 10-minute drive. The CBD is about a 20-25 minute drive during non-peak hours via the CTE. During peak hours, the journey could take up to 35 minutes.
Public transport connectivity is not one of Belgravia’s Ace strongest suit. But this is not a huge concern for most buyers of strata-landed housing as they would have cars. However, this might be useful information for school-going children, the elderly or helpers. There are also some days that residents might not feel like driving too and hence, it’s good to know the public transportation options.
While Belgravia Ace is not within walking distance to any MRT stations, a few buses along Ang Mo Kio Ave 5 would bring residents to the nearest MRT stations - Ang Mo Kio and Yio Chu Kang. The fastest way to get to the city via public transport would be by taking bus 159, 159A or 50 to Ang Mo Kio MRT station and then taking the North-South Line. Alternatively, if you’re heading anywhere along the Northeast Line, you can take bus 72 to Hougang MRT Station.
The nearest shopping mall to Belgravia Ace is Greenwich V. The mall has a Cold Storage supermarket, a gym, enrichment centres, clinics and a few dining options. For more dining and retail options, Belgravia Ace is a short drive from several malls as well as hangout spots like Chomp Chomp, Jln Kayu and Seletar Aerospace Park. There are also a number of supermarkets nearby for your daily groceries as well.
As with other strata-landed houses, the majority of Belgravia Ace’s buyers will also be families. For families with young children, the biggest concern is living near a primary school. There are a number of schools that are within a 2km radius from Belgravia Ace, including prestigious ones like Rosyth School. The downside here is that there are no primary schools located within a 1km radius, and that might affect chances of getting a school in the primary school balloting exercise.
If you and your family members are avid fans of the outdoors or just need some fresh air, the good news is that there are several parks within walking or short driving distances from Belgravia Ace. One of the most exciting green spaces is the Northeast Waterways where residents can walk or cycle via a park connector to Punggol Waterway, Coney Island and the Lorong Halus Wetlands.
