WHEN you choose a place to live, location is always a key factor.
A good address not only determines how you live when you move in, it also provides a good gauge of how you will be living your life in future. Most realtors would advise that the three most important elements in buying a home are “location, location, location” – and that says a lot.
While the definition of a good location may differ according to personal preferences, the fact remains that being placed well means higher property values, good accessibility and nearby amenities that make life comfortable.
Security is another benefit when you move into a good neighbourhood as the crime rate will likely be lower.
Taking all these factors into consideration, the newly developed One Cochrane Residences condominium presents an opportunity that is not to be missed, especially if you choose to settle down within the lively and bustling district of Cheras in Kuala Lumpur.
A large sprawling gentrified township south east of Kuala Lumpur, Cheras consists of many suburbs – some of which are embedded within Selangor.
Recently, property pundits have pointed out that Cheras has garnered much attention, especially the southern side towards Kajang.
Ideally located, One Cochrane Residences is perched close to the threshold of the city centre itself, in the part of Cheras that is experiencing rapid redevelopment.
With the address of No. 1 Jalan Cochrane, Kuala Lumpur, the condominium is merely 150m away from the Cochrane MRT Station, a convenience that allows for quick jaunts to nearby landmarks like Pavilion Bukit Bintang and the upcoming international financial and business district of Tun Razak Exchange (TRX).

Also in close proximity are the exciting crowd-pulling twin shopping attractions of Ikea Cheras, which at one time was touted to be the largest in the country (that crown now sits squarely on Ikea Tebrau’s brow), and MyTOWN Shopping Centre.
This matured neighbourhood is also populated with parks, schools, private educational institutions, clinics and hospitals, including Prince Court Medical Centre and Sunway Medical Centre Velocity, and more. Even golf enthusiasts can look forward to regular tee-offs at the Royal Selangor Golf Club.
All these elements combined make One Cochrane Residences a superb property, not only for living but also as an investment, as the location is bound to appreciate in value in years to come.
This certainly increases the attraction for anyone who hopes to call One Cochrane Residences home, as the investment potential is also high.
Access is fed by several major highways such as Maju Expressway (MEX), SMART Tunnel, DUKE, AKLEH, Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2) and the Federal Highway, with major road links being Jalan Tun Razak, Jalan Ampang, Jalan Sungai Besi and Jalan Loke Yew.
One Cochrane has seven different unit layouts, featuring an active open living space concept.
One Cochrane Residences is freehold, which usually means a more affordable rate for homeowners in terms of utilities, such as electricity and water, as well as in assessment and parcel rent tax.
It has seven different unit layouts with floor spaces starting at 86sqm (926sqft) to 114sqm (1,227sqft), with all layouts benefitting from the modern open access concept which merges the living room with the dining and kitchen areas.
The opposite is true for private areas, like bedrooms and wet areas, which are discreetly separated from the open areas with a main partition.
Such considerations make One Cochrane Residences appropriate for singles, couples or a small young family of about four or five.
One-bedroom units include a study room that can also double as sleeping quarters for guests. Each unit comes with two washrooms and a balcony, with a clear view of the city skyline.
More privacy is afforded thanks to placements of just five to six units per floor, with four lifts for residents and a separate service lift.
Bedrooms and wet areas are discreetly separated from the open area with a main partition.
Living in such a fast-paced and lively environment could mean experiencing life that is more exciting and all-together more modern and convenient.
Besides the well-landscaped facade which features a sunken garden and a tree house, One Cochrane Residences has all the modern conveniences that befit a young upwardly mobile person or family.
It has its own nursery, convenience store and a launderette, which saves a trip outside the property.
The barbecue terrace is part of a larger area that includes the pool and various fitness sections.
Those who love to entertain friends and family during social gatherings can take advantage of the barbecue terrace, lounge and pool area to host small private functions. There are also designated areas for garden dining, party rooms and even a multipurpose hall for larger events.
The pool area itself consists of a wading pool, a swimming pool, a family-sized jacuzzi and a floating lounge. Changing rooms for both men and women are available, along with dedicated saunas.
There is an aqua gym as well as a conventional fitness studio for those who work out regularly. While a games room and creative play area are great for those who just want to kick back after a stressful work week.
The top floor also features another quiet outdoor fitness area which is great for meditation or yoga.
This floor also holds a more private and sophisticated setting for alfresco dining under the stars, or simply have a friendly chat over coffee at the adjoining cafe.

Building a life at One Cochrane Residences is achievable for young professionals, small families and first-time home owners, especially now thanks to the ongoing Home Ownership Campaign which runs until May 31, 2021.
Further demonstrating its strong market appeal, One Cochrane Residences received the Development of the Year title during the iProperty Development Excellence Awards (iDEA) in 2018.
