THERE is a view to behold from every corner of the house.
This makes Manor Born in The Dales at Tambun Road an exclusive guarded community and a special place for the entire family to call home.
Nestled amid lush greenery — The Dales — the largest landscaped project in Perak, has the 250 million years old Tambun Hills as a backdrop.
The sight of mountain mist, rolling green landscape, chirping birds and butterflies is a great way to start our day. This type of setting is indeed priceless.
“You can build a house with the same design and with the same interior decoration elsewhere, but it will never be the same as what you get in Manor Born,” said Team Keris Bhd (TKB) group executive chairman Datuk Lee Seng Hee.
Beaming with pride, he went on to highlight the exquisite beauty of Manor Born during different times of the day, saying that developing the project was more than a business to him.
“I want to leave a legacy,” he said.
Manor Born comprises 18 units of three-storey basement concept bungalows in a gated and guarded community.
It boasts a six-tier security system and good connectivity which are important features of modern living.
The Dales is located at the entry and exit way access to the North-South Highway.
It is also nearby to important amenities, less than 10-minutes drive to Pantai Hospital and Kinta City shopping centre, banks and food outlets.
The owners of Manor Born also have access to the existing facilities in The Dales such as the club house, tennis courts, basketball court, playground, jungle trek, jogging/cycling track, reflexology path, BBQ pit, wild fish pond, Dales orchard and outdoor exercise stations.
Manor Born, meanwhile, has its own swimming pool and gymn.
Being the final parcel of development in The Dales, Manor Born residents have the privilege to enjoy a mature neighbourhood, surrounded by lush green surroundings and beautiful houses the moment they move in.
There are a total of 117 houses in The Dales, including the 18 units in Manor Born.
Construction for the first phase of The Dales started in the year 2000.
Looking back, Lee said he first set foot on the site — a jungle — 20 years ago.
Despite being swarmed by mosquitoes all over his face, he literally did not lose sight of the beauty of the natural setting, and most of all, its vast potential for development and preserving its origins at the same time.
Besides taking every step to preserve the natural terrain during development, Lee said about 3,000 carefully selected trees were also planted in the open space over the years to further boost the already beautiful natural setting.
It is about the art and ability to bring out the best in the natural environment for the enjoyment of those living in its midst.
It is also about a clever blend of nature with the community setting; using creativity, fine taste and architectural skills to put together a picture perfect environment any time of the day.
Stepping into a unit of Manor Born recently, I could feel how the well thought out designs, coupled with the high ceiling and many glass panels, are able to create the seamless beauty.
The living spaces within the residence also wraps around a central courtyard garden that brings natural lighting and the beauty of greenery into your house.
You can enjoy the beauty of your garden any time of the day, and with privacy assured.
Each bungalow, priced from RM2.5mil, has eight rooms to meet the needs of every family member.
During a tour of the showhouse on Monday, Lee’s wife, Datin Irene Lee and her team, provided an insight into the significance of the designs which are not only beautiful but also take into account the needs and comfort of all its occupants.
Known for her flair in interior design and an eye for details, Irene’s involvement and influence in the luxurious home project, and how she puts her mind and heart into it to turn it into a dream home of many people is most obvious.
The basement concept homes is also designed with the elderly in mind as the basement has ample space to include a suite for the elderly, in particular.
There is the convenience of being driven into your own home with the private living area and bedroom just a few steps away.
Depending on the needs of the family, Manor Born’ basement carpark area has ample space for a movie room, games room, private garage and maid’s room as well.
The ground and first floor come with six en-suite bedrooms, three living halls, two kitchens, two powder rooms and two convertible rooms.
As TKB director Michael Tan said: “You get what you see.”
