BEING caught up in the rat race, many of us constantly search for a suitable getaway that is close to home and doesn’t require much travelling. A place where we can recharge our mind, body and soul which allows an exchange of energy that uplifts one’s being.

How would you feel if you could bring this feeling back to where you live? Wouldn’t that be simply amazing? Just imagine the sunrise piercing into one’s home, brightening up each and every nook with positive vibes.

Those considering homes with such sought after qualities need not look any further as developer Paramount Property has crafted a pure and pristine township dubbed Sejati Residences within Cyberjaya.

Homes within this expanse closely followed the theme of offering a luxury and refined lifestyle with sustainability, evident throughout the developments pastures.

Sejati Residences is developed over a 40 acre freehold land parcel with a low dense of 249 landed units over the entire plinth of land. The residential township is split into three parcels with each acre accommodating up to six to seven units.

The uniqueness amongst the homes offered within this gated and guarded development begins with its architecture. Many of the homes featured inside the estate adopt a split level architectural design.

Such a design provides an airy and spacious ambience to each and every home, aside from adding a sense of charm and distinctiveness which sets these homes apart from other similar properties that may be developed close by.

The developer has also set renovation standards ensuring its uniformity and classy appearance, reflected by each parcel of Sejati Residences can stand the test of time.

The homes offered within this luxurious estate features functional, open-planned layouts merging both private as well as family spaces found in each home.

One will find floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding doors allowing maximal natural lighting into each home as well as sweeping views of the gorgeous surroundings that the township is set in.

Adding to that, all windows and sliding doors used in the construction of all residences within the township are coated with a specialized glazing material to further reflect sun rays, while a courtyard design, implemented to certain homes, also allowing for better ventilation and sunlight.

This lifestyle property by Paramount Property is also truly green at heart. One of the most prominent efforts taken by the developer that many may not notice is the 1,200 mature trees that are present throughout the township which is an aspect that truly brings the outdoors closer into the homes of the residents that choose this address to reside.

The township also expresses its green character via the usage of LED bulbs for street lighting as well as external lighting. This translates to a reduction of the carbon foot print and cost savings too.

The developer has also placed much thought into the selection of tree species incorporated into each property parcel of Sejati Residences.

These trees had been chosen based on suitability to the environment, its durability, different shades, colors and its ability to trap air pollutants and to keep away harmful mosquitos while, attracting colorful butterflies, an array of sweet sounding birds and a myriad of flora and fauna.

In addition, the township also has foliage showcasing the rich diversity of Malaysian trees which is part of the larger effort to introduce native plants into structural developments as part of preserving Malaysia’s rich and varied plant life.

The highlight of the development is the Chengal House which is the point of contact between all the residents of the Sejati Residences township.

The true value of sustainability lies within construction of Chengal House where precious reclaimed timber was reused, cut and custom-assembled to build key parts of the majestic structure which also serves as the clubhouse of the nature-themed township.

The exterior of Chengal House features a natural green wall that helps shade away the sun via the usage of Glass Fibre Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) louvers and metal mesh screen to further contribute to the ventilation and cooling effect of the clubhouse. The GFRC louvers also required zero maintenance.

The evaporation of water from the wading and infinity swimming pools that can be found within the Chengal House also further increased the cooling effect.

Residents can also reward themselves with a huge variety of facilities. The Sejati Residences community is connected to the development’s central linear park.

Some of the facilities that can be found within the luxurious township include an 8km jogging track which promotes walking, biking and running, and water features, a spice and herb garden (where its produce can be consumed by residents) as well as plenty of outdoor exercise equipment.

Residents may also find a children’s playground, an outdoor multi-purpose court, park benches, a reflexology path and well-crafted streetscapes.

Such excellent craftsmanship does not go unnoticed. Chengal house had been proudly recognised for its dedicated efforts via two distinctive awards.

These were the 8th Malaysian Landscape Architecture Awards 2015 for an Honour Award in recognition of Chengal House’s landscape concept as well as the FIABCI-Malaysia Property Awards 2016 under the Purpose Built category.”
