VENUS Plan Sdn Bhd, a member of the Mitraland Group has sold 60% of its Oasis@Cheras 2½-storey terrace houses within three months of soft launch in September.
This is not bad considering the fact that there are so many new developments in Cheras. So what are the reasons for the good sales?
According to Mitraland sales & marketing manager Eddie Wong Wah Sun, most of the purchasers like the renovation free concept as well as the three-tier gated and guard community (perimeter fencing with 24-hour security, CCTV at guard house, touch card system for main entrance and home alarm system for every house).
“Home owners are very concerned about security these days and staying at Oasis@Cheras give them a peace of mind as they are assured of good security,” Wong told StarBiz.
Purchasers also like the big built-up area with 4+1 bedrooms and five bathrooms. There are a total of 121 houses: Type A - 77 units of the 22ftx70ft and 19 units of the 22ftx74ft types (2,769 sq ft built-up for intermediate units) and Type B - 25 units of the 22ftx70ft type (2,805 sq ft built-up for intermediate units).
The price starts from RM458,800.
The 9.3-acre freehold development with a gross development value of RM55mil, is located at Taman Cheras Utama and adjacent to the new Bintang Supermarket. Housing estates in the area include Taman Desa Baiduri, Bandar Damai Perdana, Taman Sri Minang, and Bandar Alam Damai.
Wong said purchasers would not have to extend or renovate their houses as they came with many extras and would be built up to the rear. The unique features include 15ft high ceiling at the living room, sunken bath, shower screen and vanity top for master bathroom, internal courtyard, three phase power supply, concealed air-conditioning piping, 8ft doors for main entrance and bedrooms, skim coating and two master bedrooms with ensuite bathroom.
There is a bedroom and two bathrooms on the ground floor, two bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first floor and two more bedrooms and a bathroom on the top floor that is set to the rear.
“Hence, there is no floor above the master bedroom to ensure privacy. From our feedback, many people like our spacious built-up area, as our terrace houses are as big as a semi-detached house. We hope this project will further enhance the lifestyle of the Cheras people who are demanding lifestyle homes with nice facades and security,” he added.
The development features include a fitness zone, a leisure sanctuary, linear rear garden, concealed underground utilities, modern landscape lightings, and water features at the main entrance. The project is scheduled for completion in the middle of 2009.
Wong said the show unit will be ready for viewing at the official launch on Dec 16 and 17. There will be a pre-Christmas party at the project site from 7pm to 10pm and a feng shui talk by Master Helen Kwek, president of the Malaysian Institute of Geomancy Sciences on Dec 17.
