TAMAN Tasik Semenyih (TTS) has gone WiFi!
The developer, Bandar Tasik Semenyih Sdn Bhd is offering wireless broadband connection to the Internet for purchasers of its 198 units of double-storey semi-detached houses that are being sold in a new precinct called the “WiFi” precinct” in the 211-acre mixed housing development in Semenyih, Selangor.
This is indeed a “feather in the cap” for the low-profiled company whose flagship development is one of the first if not the only residential project in the country to go WiFi.
It would be a boon for purchasers especially those planning to rent out their houses to students of the University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus (UNIM) located just next door. Residents who live within the network’s coverage in this new WiFi precinct will be able to access the Internet using this wireless local area network technology.
Since the service provider is also giving the same service to the campus, this means that a student renting a house in TTS can also have wireless communication with somebody at the campus and vice versa.
It is akin to making an intercom call. How convenient!
With this service being provided for the future residents of this new precinct in TTS, the properties here are expected to be in good demand by UNIM students.
As the varsity can currently provide hostel accommodation for only about 630 first year students, they will have to find their own lodging to make way for the next batch of first year students.
Buyers of the four-bedroom and three-bathroom semi-detached houses priced from RM239,888 can expect almost immediate rental return on their investment as 52 of these houses would be ready for occupation by the end of August this year, to coincide with the university’s new intake.
This is the first time that the developer is building semi-detached houses for TTS that is set against a backdrop of verdant, rolling hills and also has a 20-acre lake garden.
The standard lot size of the houses is 35ft x 70ft with 2,037 sq ft built-up area. Land area is from 2,454 sq ft to 5,393 sq ft. The maximum price is RM429,888.
The 198 houses were launched last weekend. These attractive contemporary designed houses with lots of window copings are located next to a well-designed landscaped park which will have amongst others a football field, children's playground, two badminton cum sepak takraw courts and exercise stations. Parking bays have been provided for the playground where a surau is being built.
I could see the amount of effort put in by the developer during a recent visit to the show house.
For the very affordable price, the developer is giving quality finishes that include clay brick wall and ceramic tiles for the ground floor and first floor. There is also generous provision for lighting and power points including water heater and air-conditioning points with three-phase wiring. The wide car porch with coloured textured concrete floor can park two cars.
An advantage of buying completed or soon-to-be-completed houses is that purchasers can see the quality of the workmanship and can decide whether to buy or not.
In this case, I believe they will be quite happy with the workmanship.
For less than RM480,000, you can buy two units that look like one big bungalow with a combine built-up area of over 4,000 sq ft, eight bedrooms, six bathrooms, parking for four or more cars and an enviable lake country environment!
You probably can’t buy a semi-detached house in Petaling Jaya where some prices are over RM1 mil!
Bandar Tasik Semenyih Sdn Bhd managing director Lim Yan Pok said purchasers would enjoy free six months WiFi access fees, free joining fee with one year free subscription for the exclusive use of the lovely Semenyih Lake Country Club, free one year security services for the semi-detached houses’ guarded precinct and free legal fees for the signing of the Sale & Purchase Agreement if it is signed with the developer’s panel of solicitors.
Lim said purchasers would also save on progress payment interest as some of the houses are in an advanced stage of completion. “We reckon that each purchaser can save about RM17,000. They can also see for themselves the good quality workmanship,” he said, adding that 16 houses would not be sold but would be rented out to UNIM students. The expected rent is RM1,600 for an unfurnished house and RM2,350 a month for a fully furnished house, thus giving a 7% to 8% rental return.
He said students staying in TTS would also enjoy a “special privilege” for using the clubhouse facilities. “There will be no joining fees and they need only pay RM35 a month each,” he added.
TTS along Jalan Broga, is just 2km from Semenyih town centre. It is 33km from Kuala Lumpur and 20km from Putrajaya.
Its accessibility has improved vastly especially with the opening of the Kajang Bypass and SILK Highway. For example one can drive along the Cheras-Kajang Highway, exit at Sungai Long and enter the SILK Highway or exit at Saujana Impian and travel along the Kajang Bypass. The future completion of the Kajang-Seremban Highway (KASEH) is expected to boost the Semenyih new growth corridor.
