Taman Desa Jaya
is a leasehold housing development located within the borders of Kepong, bordering Selayang. It is well located within the city at only 20 minutes away from the Kuala Lumpur city centre. It is only 20 minutes to Mont Kiara and Bangsar from here, while Petaling Jaya is 25 minutes away and the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) at an hour away.Taman Desa Jaya has a combination of both single storey as well as double storey terrace houses. Built-ups of these homes range between 1,300 sf and 2,275 bedrooms, housing between 3 and 5 bedrooms. Prices of these homes are fairly reasonable at between RM410,000 and RM728,000.Taman Desa Jaya is a very old development in Kepong, where the houses show their ages clearly thru their exteriors and designs. As such, buyers can usually opt to get partially furnished units off the market with built-in kitchen cabinets, fan and light fixings as well as fully furnished bathrooms. Major renovations upon these houses are also fairly common.Being one of the oldest developments in the area, Taman Desa Jaya does not offer any facilities to its residents. However, as typical to a Chinese neighbourhood, there is a local morning wet market within the area that opens on a daily basis. There is also a police station that serves the area, while within close distance is the local mosque Masjid Al-Faizin. Located deep inside is also a RapidKL bus hub.For family entertainment, Taman Desa Jaya residents will be able to patron Metro Prima Jusco which is only 10 minutes away. Not only does it offer a very well stocked supermarket, it also has many franchise restaurants and boutiques. There are also many local banks in the area, with Eon Bank and Maybank within walking distance, while the ParkCity Medical Centre is only 10 minutes away.Taman Desa Jaya is located just off the Selayang - Kepong Highway, which provides direct routes to major trunk roads such as Jalan Kuching, Jalan Ipoh and Jalan Duta. As such, access to major highways such as the Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2) and the Duta - Ulu Kelang Expressway (DUKE) are less than 15 minutes away on a clear route. Public transportation can be found on the Selayang - Kepong Highway with a high number of cabs and busses passing through.

Taman Desa Jaya is located by a very busy and hectic road, the Selayang - Kepong Highway, which has a high number of vehicles at all times of day and night and is badly congested during peak hours. Residents have only one access road in and out of their housing development, which causes major problems during peak hours as they can only go home from one way.The neighbourhood closer to the main road will have a very dusty environment with much sound pollution from the traffic, especially from irate motorists during peak hours, while those who have the privilege of having the houses in the inner areas will have much peace and quiet; especially around the two Chinese cemetery areas. Residents can usually also expect to not be able to leave their houses during the Chinese All Souls Day (Cheng Beng), when the roads will be filled with throngs of visitors to the grave sites.Taman Desa Jaya would not be considered to be a very good investment at all, not just because of its leasehold title but also because of the inconveniences trying to get into the neighbourhood itself. Buyers who wish to live in this area would be advised to get a unit in the inner areas closer to the top of the hill as to have better views and "feng shui"; and hopefully not get any midnight visitors.
