Waterfront Gold

The Waterfront Gold Condo at Bedok Reservoir

Waterfront Gold Condominium


New Condo at Bedok Reservoir . 6 Minutes Walk to MRT Station

Waterfront Gold Condo is a new Singapore condo property for sale that presents a real opportunity for resort-style reservoir-front living, that is not just some marketing spin. You are separated from the reservoir by only Bedok Reservoir Road, so it can be said to be (almost) literally on the water’s edge.

Bedok Reservoir is actually 40% larger than Marina Bay, so if you like the water views there but not the price tag, this might be an alternative. You can see some pretty spectacular sunsets too.

According to the developer, the site has been specifically planned to maximize views to the reservoir, and units are functionally laid out with quality finishes.

There are a total of 361 units of 1 to 4 bedroom flats that include 5 penthouses. Sizes range from 580 sqft for the one-bedders, to just over 2,000 sqft for the penthouses.

The Waterline Condo @ District 19


Freehold Boutique Development by GuocoLand

The Waterline Condo is a low-rise freehold condominium development. It is situated in an established residential enclave, in an area of mostly landed housing. A big attraction is probably the fact that it is within 1km of sought after Rosyth School.

This project occupies the site of the former Toho Gardens that was sold collectively to GuocoLand in 2007. Perhaps because of that, it is able to sell at a lower price PSF than is usually found for new freehold condos nowadays.

Waterline Condo sits on a fairly sizeable piece of land, larger than for most apartments in the vicinity. There are 103 units in this 5 storey low-rise condominium offering 1 to 4 bedroom apartments and penthouses, including some special units with private pools.

It offers a decent range of condominium facilities & landscaping, by moving the parking underground to the basement, which also keeps the ground level vehicle-free & safe for children.

Unique Selling Points

What’s appealing about the Waterline Condo:

  1. Freehold. It’s on a freehold (estate in fee simple) title, which is the best tenure to have, whereas all new government land sales are only for 99 years leasehold. Freehold land tends to hold its value much better in the long run.

  2. Location. Apart from its enviable proximity to Rosyth School, it’s also pretty near a number of other reputable schools, as well as Lycée Français de Singapour.

  3. Setting. Situated in the heart of an established residential estate of mainly landed property.

  4. Being green. This project got a Greenmark Gold Award for environmental friendliness. It has features like rectangular strips in the pool to let natural light into the basement car park, an organic refuse recycling system, etc.

  5. Reputable developer. GuocoLand is an award-winning developer whose projects include Sophia Residence, Leonie Studio, and Goodwood Residence.
