Casa Tropika – Living in the springtime of your life

When you mention Puchong, the image that comes to mind is a bustling township with lots of shopping outlets, eating place and traffic jams! What doesn’t immediately come to mind is luxury living. Part of it because Puchong was not traditionally known as an upper class area although it should be said that it’s come a long way and is now a booming residential area as savvy homebuyers begin to realize what a great location Puchong actually is.

There are some real gems that can be found there and one of them is the upcoming Casa Tropika, being developed by TSI Group Malaysia (TSI) whose track record includes D’ Alamanda @ Pudu Impian, Villa Shoplex,Villa Tropika, First Residences, Queen’s Avenue, Plaza 393, Plaza GM, GM Klang, Tg Karang (Kuantan), Taman Permai Mas and Bukit Permai Mas.

Casa Tropika is ideal for young families looking a better, holistic lifestyle which includes taking into consideration accessibility, nearby amenities and security.

There is a plan to develop 12 units of three-storey shoplots adjacent to the residential units to become a “1-Stop Academic City” conducive for young children to learn, play and grow.

And of course, the quality of the development itself must be top notch, which Casa Tropika most definitely is. It is quite simply the perfect choice for young families, in the springtime of their lives, looking for an ideal mix of accessibility, amenities and contemporary living.

There’s no denying that Puchong is notorious for heavy traffic. The silver lining to this is that it’s a clear indication of what a boom town Puchong is. With a huge population base is high demand for homes, which is good news for investors.

It’s worth noting that the traffic situation is also fast improving with the introduction of a new network of roads and highway links leading out of the city. Located along the 14th mile of Jalan Puchong, Casa Tropika is easily accessible via a network of roads including Jalan Puchong, Lebuhraya Damansara-Puchong (LDP), Lebuhraya Kuala Lumpur-Putrajaya and Lebuh Puteri.

Local amenities are plentiful and are bound to delight prospective homeowners with families. Casa Tropika is located just a stone’s throw away from an assortment of conveniences including food, transport, medical centres and shopping heavens.

For example, it’s within walking distance to SRJK(C) Han Ming, SMK Puchong Bt 14, SRJK(T) Puchong Bt 14 and SMK Puchong Utama).

Grocery stores are all just 10 minutes away by car. These include Tesco, Giant and Puteri Mart and Carrefour. The IOI shopping mall (Jusco) is also in the vicinity.

Other useful amenities include Columbia Asia Hospital, Binary College and plenty of banks such as Citibank, Standard Chartered, OCBC, HSBC, PBB, MBB, RHB. There is also a proposed LRT network nearby.

Security is naturally of utmost concern for households with young children. To that end, Casa Tropika spares no expense in ensuring a safe environment for residents. Amongst the security features are: 24-hour security guards; card access system to lift and lift lobby and car-parks; and CCTV at strategic location including inside lifts and an intercom system for quick communication.

Expected to be completed by the end of 2013, Casa Tropika is a leasehold development with a 50% bumiputra quota (Bumiputras are given a 7% discount on the selling price).

One very interesting feature of Casa Tropika which brings luxury living to its residents are the ample facilities within the complex itself.

Tiara Residences: A blend of modernity and nature

It’s said that the grass is greener on the other side. Those who live in the city want to enjoy the luxury of living in the country. Those who live in the country meanwhile, aspire to move to the city.

How nice it would be to able to enjoy both: The modernity and amenities of city life but the serenity and greenery of country life. Is it possible?

Tiara Residences Signature Pool Villas
comes pretty close to it.

These are luxury terrace homes nestled in the lush green hills of Selayang. Now, don’t let the term “terrace” turn you off. When you mention the word “terrace”, it conjures up images of a typical Malaysian housing estate with generic looking houses connected to each other.

While the units in Tiara Residences are indeed connected to each other — and thus are technically terraces — they are anything but generic. In fact, the facade is completely modern and even futuristic-looking.

There’s a total of 46 units in all, stretched across 3.33 acres. The units are built on a slope, which might bring about apprehension in some because of the negative publicity generated by news of landslides in places like Bukit Antarabangsa.

However, there should be no worry with Tiara Residences as the construction and strengthening of the slope has been approved by Ikram (a government regulator for slope development) as well as JKR’s Slope Unit. In addition, the developer has engaged geo-technical consultants to ensure maximum slope stability and protection. It’s very safe.

Phase 1 consists of four blocks Pool Villas fronting Jalan Ipoh and overlooking the KL skyline on one side and a forest reserve on the other. It is accessible via Jalan 3/9 in Pucak Templar Selayang. It’s a gated and guarded community amidst the natural forest habitat.

Each unit is four-storeys high. That’s right, there’s four levels! And the entire development is surrounded by natural greenery. That’s why I say it’s as close to a perfect blend of modernity and country living as you’ll be able to find.

The villa is divided into four levels: Lower Levels 1 and 2, Ground Level and 1st Floor. Let’s look at each floor in detail, shall we?

Lower Level 2
Here is where you can find the guest room, maid room, bathroom (shared by the guest and maid room), family room, pantry, leisure deck, courtyard and lap pool. The maintenance of the pool is estimated to be about RM100 to RM150 per month.

Lower Level 1
Here is where the living room, entertainment bar area and junior suite (bedroom) with attached bathroom can be found. There is also a bar overlooking the lap pool.

Ground Floor
This is where the wet and dry kitchens are located. The dining area opens out into a balcony where you can have a magnificent view of the KL skyline and lap pool. There is also a prayer hall or waiting area, a foyer and car porch with a sliding and folding auto gate. A steel-and-glass car porch roof will partly cover the car porch allowing daylight to stream through.

1st Floor
The first floor is a 1.5 storey level consisting of a master bedroom and two other bedrooms. The master bedroom has a spiral staircase leading up to a study room. And from the study room, you will have access to the pantry and roof terrace garden.

A walk in wardrobe and Jacuzzi is included in the master bathroom. The bathroom is large enough to house a small gym! The other two bedrooms also come with attached bathrooms.

A skylight with laminated clear glass allows ample daylight and moonlight to filter in from the top floor all the way down to lowest floor.

Cool amenities
Each units comes equipped with modern amenities including a panic button on each floor. The alarm system is also linked to the guard house via an intercom. For added security there are auto motion sensors on the Lower Levels and the pool deck. Rainwater is harvested for use for car washing and gardening.

Tiara Residences is an exclusive enclave where you can have the best of modern city life and enjoy the serenity and tranquility of country living. Nestled amongst lush greenery and atop slopes, this is a home truly for someone who appreciates life at the top.
