Luxury condominiums are the way of the future for the large generation who will be moving on to retirement in the not so distant future. Nevertheless, these condos also cater to those who are keen on streamlining their lives and for those who seek rejuvenation from the hustle and bustle of city life.
As a ‘KL-ite’, I’ve personally seen many condos being constructed at nearly every corner the city. For a city dweller like me, these condos that are set amidst the buzzing city life cater towards the lifestyles of those from the younger generations, like me; but what about those that are yearning for an escape from all this chaos? One address clearly stands above the rest.
As the name suggests, it’s an ideal residential area for anyone who is in search of comfort and solitude. An exclusive apartment that is crafted to meet your every need, The Haven Lakeside Residences is the epitome of ethereal serenity. Although oceanfront or beachfront properties usually make the cut when it comes to a providing for an astounding view, The Haven offers something that’s more of a sight for sore eyes.
Nestled amongst the lush greenery of Bukit Tambun, a home at The Haven is effortlessly luxurious, quietly elegant and several cuts above the rest around the vicinity of Ipoh. Look around and you will be greeted by the beauty of its virgin surroundings. From serene landscapes, to lush hills, and a sprawling, tranquil lake with a 280 million year-old gigantic rock sitting on it, it would be hard not to instantly fall in love with the place.
Developed by Superboom Projects Sdn Bhd, and with building and construction works taken over by Bina Puri and Beijing Construction and Engineering, The Haven is more than just a fine-looking place as it caters to the needs of prospect buyers, tenants and also investors who are on the look for unique real estate investment opportunities that await them in a quaint town like Ipoh.
According to the Chief Executive Officer of Superboom Projects Sdn Bhd, Peter Chan, he is very enthralled with the good reception The Haven has garnered in the past year. “It’s an investment with a class of its own in Ipoh, one that leaves you spoiled for choice. And it’s no surprise that it has raised to fame in such a short time span.”
“The temptation of owning a property at The Haven is very hard to resist. The breathtaking view that surrounds you is one major aspect, but convenience is also another: when you’re missing out on the city life that you’ve probably been used to, all you have to do is to step out of your home and take a short drive to the town of Ipoh which is just a stone’s throw away,” he added.
It’s a world class residence, a stunning property that is very much sought after by those who don’t just value tranquil and serene surroundings but also the exclusiveness of an ultra-modern property that is equipped with comprehensive facilities. The Haven stands to reason that your condominium should match your status, if not exceed it.
With its completion just around the corner, it would be worth noting that The Haven consist of three condo towers with a total of 497 condo units – each tower is 26 storeys high and the unit built-up ranges from 968sq ft. to 5,350sq ft. and comes with a price tag that ranges from RM389,500 onwards. The penthouses on the other hand are priced between RM1.27 million to RM2.86 million and there are only 15 of them. Occupying a mere 30,000sq ft. of land, the rest of the area houses recreational facilities such as a swimming pool and a jogging track, car park space and landscaped grounds.
The project is also quickly earning quite a reputation in the local arena as well as in the International scene by bagging 4 awards – Best Resort Condominium and Best Perak Development at the SC Cheah Choice Awards 2011, New Straits Times Property, the International Arch of Europe Award 2011 (Frankfurt) for Quantity and Innovation and The Diamond Eye Award 2011 (Geneva) for Quantity and Excellence.
With this many accolades under its name, there must be more to The Haven. From being the first five-star condo cum hotel in Malaysia, to the first to feature digital animation in its marketing efforts and the first eco-condo project by the virgin forest, this property is showcases the many ‘firsts’ in Malaysia and in Perak.
With an aim to satisfy your specialised requests and desires, the resort-style living here is further enhanced with a diversified offer of interesting and exclusive facilities. To start with, there’s an infinity swimming pool that was designed by the renowned Consultant Urban Design Group together with builder Mega Hydro System Sdn Bhd. Though it’s evident that even an ordinary condominium features a swimming pool, this one’s a little extra special; it offers heated water for those who are planning to go for a dip late in the evening. This is further proof that condo living just spoils a person for any other type of lifestyle. And then there’s the added luxury of a gymnasium, landscaped gardens and waterways, a designated barbecue patio and a children’s playground.
A variety of “green” features and technologies have also been incorporated into the building in order to reduce carbon footprint. Some notable features include renewable energy sources of wind, water and sun, the usage of eco-friendly building materials, inverter-type air-conditioning, and LED lighting in common areas. Looking to enhance the vast facilities that are already made available to the residents, The Haven is also set to incorporate a private bus shuttle facility to commute residents to the city centre.
The comfort and convenience aside, The Haven is also protected with top notch security features such as guarded entrances, card access to residential floors, concierge service, foot patrol that goes on regular rounds, CCTV system and fencing.
The modern luxurious feel continues with the interior. To further enhance the facilities, Best Western International, one of the world’s largest hotel chains has stepped in to provide professional services to market and lease out The Haven Lakeside Residences.
According to Chan, “Property owners at The Haven can lease out their units. The contract will be between the owner and Best Western Hotels.” Buyers are also guaranteed a 6% annual return for the first three years and 7% for a further two years based on lease agreements. The outlook for The Haven is definitely positive and this gives buyers and owners the confidence in future capital gains in one-way or the other.
When asked about the future residents of The Haven, Chan explained that they will mostly consist of people who are seeking for a vacation home or a retirement home. “There are a huge number who are going to be full-time residents as well. There is also a good mix of residents of different nationalities; we have buyers from the United States, Europe, the Middle East, Hong Kong, Thailand and Indonesia to name a few”.
The developers are still constantly working hard to expand the project’s value in other areas, as well as to supply to the growing demand of this property. From the breathtaking views to the unparalleled amenities and superior service, The Haven is set to be one of the most sought-after properties and holiday getaways in the country.
