Kent Ridge Hill Residences – all the convenience of city living with a hillside address

7 min read

Save for a few exceptions, Singapore’s terrain is fairly flat and the tallest hill we have in the little red dot is Bukit Timah Hill. The southern region of Singapore is not without its own hilly landscape; the Southern Ridges offers a picturesque gradient which stretches from Mount Faber Park to Labrador Nature Reserve. Kent Ridge Park is part of the Southern Ridges and home to a large biodiversity of flora and fauna.

Direct access to Kent Ridge Park

Amid a slew of new launches in the last quarter of 2018, Kent Ridge Hill Residences stands heads and shoulders above the rest with its unique position by the hillside cocooned amid lush foliage. Perhaps the trump card that propels Oxley’s latest development to a league of its own is its exclusive, residents-only access to Kent Ridge Park from within the development’s grounds.

In modern day living where time is a precious and limited commodity, residents can easily maximise their experience in the great outdoors with this added convenience. Save time courtesy of a dedicated entryway; there’s no need to take a bus or drive out to be in nature.

Kent Ridge Park is a popular lifestyle destination amongst nature and fitness aficionados. With 20 fitness stations located around the park, one can get in a good work out or warm up before embarking on a jog. The 280m long Canopy Walk is an elevated boardwalk which provides an ideal vantage point for bird and wildlife watching. Look-out points around Kent Ridge Park offer sweeping views of nearby off-shore islands and the southern coastline.

Easy access to the city

Singaporeans are a practical bunch and most will not choose to live tucked away far from the madding crowd if it takes a long time to commute to work and nearby amenities. Despite being a restive sanctuary, Kent Ridge Hill Residences is just a 15-minute drive away from the Central Business District (CBD) and an eight-minute walk away from Pasir Panjang MRT station on the Circle Line. Even nearer still are commercial hubs Mapletree Business City, one-north and Harbourfront Centre. The world-renowned National University of Singapore and medical hub National University Hospital are reachable within five minutes by car.

With Kent Ridge Hill Residences, residents can have their cake and eat it; the development combines the tranquility of a hillside address with all the convenience of city living.

Positive vibes at Kent Ridge Hill Residences

For property seekers who believe in the benefits of feng shui, Kent Ridge Hill Residences’ “hillside backing sea facing” (座山望海) location is generally regarded as being positive and favourable. Ideally, homes and cities are supposed to be bound by mountains and near water for protection and wealth.

In addition, buying a home at Kent Ridge Hill Residences is akin to living at Hong Kong’s affluent Mid-Levels residential district without the sky high prices.

Potential Capital Upside

After the transformation of the Marina Bay and Marina South area to the glittering commercial and leisure landmark it is today, perhaps the next definitive project on Singapore’s roadmap is the Greater Southern Waterfront master plan. Works are in progress to move the port from Keppel and Pasir Panjang to Tuas in stages. Precious waterfront real estate will be freed up, setting the stage for the construction of a seamless southern belt where commercial and recreational activity operate as one cohesive whole.

Given that the Greater Southern Waterfront is likely to lead to a property renaissance in areas such as Pasir Panjang, Kent Ridge Hill Residences could benefit from a potential uplift in prices. Other factors that are likely to contribute to capital appreciation include the Circle Line extension that’s set to connect Harbourfront Station to Marina Bay Station by 2025. Residents in Pasir Panjang can look forward to having an even more direct connection to the CBD and Marina Bay financial district.
