Bartley Residences @ Bartley MRT Station
Bartley Residences is SOLD OUT
Bartley Residences is a new condominium almost on the doorstep of Bartley MRT station, on the fringe of the Lorong How Sun private residential estate. It sits on a gentle slope rising above Bartley Road, just across from Maris Stella Primary & High Schools.
This project presents an opportunity to invest in this area in the early days of its growth.
Bartley has for long been an enclave of low-rise private property and rather overlooked to date. But it is poised to awaken with the 2 major developments planned nearby.
On one side Bidardari holds the promise of becoming another ‘Bishan’; on the other is the Paya Lebar Growth Area, set to become a major commercial hub with offices, hotels and shopping precincts envisioned. So highly valued is the Paya Lebar growth potential, that Katong Regency at Joo Chiat sold out within 3 days at an average of over $1800 PSF.
Reasons to Buy Bartley Residence
Bartley is considered pretty central, not far from town. By car it is 10 – 15 minutes drive to the CBD. By train, around 15 – 20 minutes.
The newly constructed 4.5km long Bartley-Tampines viaduct makes driving to the east a breeze. Tampines Regional Centre, is surprisingly, just ten minutes’ drive away, as are the Changi Business Park, and IKEA & Courts.
This is also just one train stop to Serangoon MRT interchange station, where Nex Megamall is. Dine there, shop for groceries, then take the train one stop home. Or take the North East Line and be in Orchard Road in 10 minutes.
- MRT Effect
It is beside an MRT station on the Circle Line, which connects all the MRT spokes around the island. You could as easily get to NUS / One-North or the Harbourfront as to Marina Bay or Changi or Woodlands.
Property near MRT stations carry a premium: the nearer, the higher the premium. Those within 10 minutes walk have shown the greatest capital appreciation & resilience in downturns. Those within 2 minutes’ walk, like this one is, are rarer.
Not only does Bartley Residences step up to higher ground above Bartley Road, but it sits in a low-rise private residential area enjoying open views & space & winds.
The towers fan out in 2 wings that maximises the views, with the remaining units getting either pool or garden views.
Across the road just 5 minutes walk away are the reputable Maris Stella Primary & High Schools. Other good schools in the vicinity include Paya Lebar Methodist Girls Primary & Secondary, and Cedar Primary & Secondary Schools.
The Australian International School at Lorong Chuan is 2 train stops from Bartley.
- Rental & Investment Potential
Quite apart from the MRT station next door which always makes for a good bet, there is housing demand in Bartley because it is near centres of employment.
Such as the Paya Lebar Commercial Hub down the road, and the industrial areas of Tai Seng & MacPherson. Actually any place along the Circle Line is a potential tenant pool. Even NUS, One-North & BioPolis are barely 25 minutes by train.
The upcoming redevelopment of nearby Bidardari & Paya Lebar should lift values in Bartley as well, though Bartley is likely to retain some of its more peaceful & laid back character due to its less dense neighbourhood.
