This week, we visit a stylishly designed home at Rivertrees Residences in Fernvale. Homeowners Jocelyn and Eugene have transformed the space into one that is on the darker, more sultry side but still kept light with the cement screed walls in the living room. They also chose to go with large format tiles on the floor, which helps the place look much cleaner with fewer lines.

We've received some feedback on exploring the west coast landed enclave. The area used to be known as a "Japanese area" due to the presence of Japanese schools, however, it's more cosmopolitan in recent years. Today, it's a less crowded landed area that's known to be close to many schools. If you're looking out for a landed home, join TJ in her tour of this enclave to explore more of what this place has to offer!

Executive maisonettes have gained a lot of popularity in recent Covid-19 years. Its two-storey design and innovative layout could be why it is still in demand today. With a limited supply and demand of such units, it was a valuable opportunity for Cara and Matt because the property ticks all checkboxes in their criteria. Read more about their journey on how they transformed an old 1986 executive maisonette into a cosy modern farmhouse.

This is our review of The Hyde, a unique boutique freehold condo located in the Balmoral area. We did a showflat review back in 2020, and we must say that the showflat certainly didn't do justice to the place - and that became apparent now that it's built!


Perhaps itโ€™s no surprise there because Aurum Land is well-known for its boutique developments and bold design concepts.

So if you're looking out for a luxury boutique project, would The Hyde be suitable for you?

Ghim Moh Edge was launched in November 2012, with prices at that time (excluding grants) of $99k for the studio apartments, 3-room flats from $242k and 4-room flats from $366k. Itโ€™s located at Commonwealth Avenue West and Ghim Moh Link, and itโ€™s got a good location given you can just walk to Buona Vista MRT (which has the East West and Circle line) and Star Vista too. It is 38-storeys high so you do get nice views of the area, and has 5 residential blocks that comprises 1,179 units of studio apartments, 3, and 4-room standard flats.

This week, we visit one of the most uniquely designed homes that was specially built for a family with two young daughters. Designed by Gwen Tan of Formwerkz Architects, it was conceptualised based on the brief from the family: the father wanted his daughters to experience the joy of running around freely as they were growing up. As such, the aptly named Ramp House was designed with ramps that wrap around the house that can take you from the garden on the ground floor to the rooftop 20-metre swimming pool.
