A NEW luxury super condo, tagged to be among the crème de la crème of condominiums in the country, has been launched in Desa Seri Hartamas, Kuala Lumpur.
The developer, Maymont Development Sdn Bhd, will construct 158 luxury super condos that offer privacy and exclusivity on 5.2 acres of freehold land belonging to Datuk P. Kasi.
Its director Gerard Pereira said the standard Matahari luxury super condos would be 40ft wide and have a minimum built-up area of about 3,900 sq ft.
This is about the size of an average bungalow, while the biggest super condo would be about 10,700 sq ft.
“The units are well finished with teak timber strips flooring in all bedrooms (except the maid's room), marble and granite for toilets, built-in wardrobes, plaster ceiling and air conditioners as standard items. All units have high ceilings about four metres high,” he said.
Pereira said the highest units would be the two-storey penthouses designed as modern tropical homes with gardens in the sky.
“Prices start from about RM2.2mil for the standard luxury super condo,” he said.
The features include a 25-metre high and 7.5-metre wide stone carving on the building called Matahari Art Wall designed by an internationally known artist working in Bali, Richard North Lewis.
He said the luxury super condos were targeted at those who wanted a large space like a typical bungalow with conveniences of a condominium lifestyle in a gated and guarded community.
“This is expected to appeal to foreigners and participants of the Malaysia My Second Home programme as it is located in Desa Seri Hartamas.
“There are three international as well as local primary and secondary schools,” he said.
Pereira said the luxury super condos came in 24 different home layouts to give a variety of choices and the prestige of limited editions.
“These condos are modern and tropical-inspired with artistic design touches and luxurious quality finishing.
“They offer a panoramic view of the Petronas Twin Towers and surrounding areas,” he added.
Works Minister Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu, who officiated at the sales launch of the units recently, said the project was setting new benchmarks for housing development in the country with high quality finishings and other design features.
