Thoughtful design to maximize privacy, comfort and a feeling of connecting with the green, landscaped setting is the principle behind the freehold Belgravia Green residential development, with work just beginning on the more than 136,500 sq ft plot in the tranquil northeast suburban neighbourhood of Seletar. The development is within proximity to major road routes and expressways, with quality local amenities such as shops and schools adding to its residential appeal.
The low-density Belgravia Green project is set to complete by the end of 2023. Meanwhile, project developers Fairview Developments Pte Ltd, a subsidiary of Tong Eng Group, is already showcasing success with a win in the Best Landed Development category at the 8th annual PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Singapore) in October 2018. The residential build is being supported by LAUD Architects, with interior design by Architology and landscaping by PDAA Design.
The modern, minimalist, Scandinavian-style homes of Belgravia Green are designed with the concept of “less is more” in mind. This is set to result in five-bedroom, three-storey homes that feel abundantly spacious, with clean lines and a bold asymmetrical design that feels clutter-free. With an average unit size of 3,530 sq ft, each residence includes a basement and loft space as well as its own private elevator.
One of the judges on this year’s judging panel is Clement Ong, AVP for Strategic Planning & Investment at Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts. He praises the kind of resort-lifestyle the 81-residence complex inspires. “Belgravia Green is a freehold cluster development that wins in terms of value, design and multitude of facilities. Private lift access to every level and smart home system make it an ideal home. The clubhouse, gym, BBQ deck, playground, swimming pool and gardens create a complete landed lifestyle.” These facilities include a kids’ pool, hydrotherapy jets and a waterfall feature overflowing from the 28-metre infinity-edged pool.
An impressive feature of the Belgravia Green homes is a distinctive fin design to ensure an optimal level of shelter, privacy and shade. At the same time, metal frames on the first floor seamlessly connect the indoors to the outdoor greenery, extending the internal living space. Full-length windows enhance the ambition to build light and airy contemporary homes that resonate with the lifestyles of Singapore’s modern-day families.
Landscaping is a key component of Fairview Development’s residential vision of offering residents the space in which to live, relax, stay active, and socialise. This is reflected in the gentle pathways, natural softscaping and themed gardens. Meanwhile, quiet spots can be meditative spaces or gathering places for get-togethers with others. A rocky pond with a babbling brook and comfortable outdoor furnishings reinforces Belgravia Green’s appeal as a homely residence, whether for families or older residents looking for an elegant and functional property to live in.
