Living life to the fullest at Casa Rica
With the Chinese New Year (CNY) just around the corner, many families will be making plans to usher in the Year of the Rabbit. At the same time, first-time home buyers will also be eying an affordable home to call their own while growing families will look for a newer and bigger place. While CNY is predominantly an affair for the Chinese population, Malaysians - being a pluralistic society - tends to follow suit as the festive celebration also marks the beginning of the year.
The rabbit, known to be the luckiest out of all the twelve zodiac animals, symbolises prosperity, abundance, good luck and fertility. Unlike the other animals, which have different meanings in different cultures, the rabbit symbolism is consistent. In many cultures, rabbits are springtime animals, symbolic of fruitfulness and renewal. This makes the Year of the Rabbit an auspicious year to buy a home.
In conjunction with the CNY festive, property developer S P Setia Bhd will be hosting an Open House on Jan 27 this year from 6pm to 10pm. Held at the Setia Welcome Centre SPICE in Penang, the event will consist of lion and dragon Dance performances, fireworks, CNY workshops, cultural performances and more.
Local Penangites and visitors can also view S P Setia's low-density Casa Rica which is a Spanish-inspired semi-detached (semi-D) home, comprising 60 units of two-storey and three-storey semi-D homes. Priced from RM2.1mil, the sales response was very encouraging and only limited units are still available.
The 11-acre freehold enclave represents the final phase of the group’s landed property project within the 46.3-acre eco-township, Setia Greens, in Sungai Ara, Bayan Lepas.
Casa Rica, which means rich home in Spanish, has been well-planned to meet the high demand for landed property, which is currently lacking on Penang island due to land scarcity.
With a total gross development value of RM130.3mil, the units that are still available have built-ups ranging from 2,874 sq ft to 2,916 sq ft. Positioned at different levels of the terrain to form a picturesque silhouette, the Casa Rica homes come with land areas between 3,433 sq ft and 5,737 sq ft.
Casa Rica is a perfect place for a multi-generational family to experience the richness of Life. As the name suggests, the development is based on the Spanish culture of living life to the fullest. Surrounded by lush greenery, there are three Spanish-themed pocket parks to complete the Spanish image. Residents will get to enjoy more with these enchanting outdoor spaces:
Casa Rica Garden – This garden has a De'Alhambra sculpture that acts as the centrepiece and was inspired by the Spanish vase concept. The installation is clad in a gorgeous Azulejo pattern akin to the design one may find on glazed tiles that are traditionally used in Spanish buildings.
Casa Rica Terrance Garden – Inspired by Spanish archways, this garden has an additional sitting area for families and friends to have a joyous moment.
De’Alhambra Garden – Set next to the hill, this garden is surrounded by lush greenery, surrounded by romantic trellises, making it the perfect location for get-togethers with loved ones.
A plethora of conveniences and amenities are just a short distance away from the development. Less than 6km away is the Penang International Airport while institutions of higher learning such as University Sains Malaysia and INTI International College are located nearby.
Families with children will be pleased to know that there is a choice of local and international schools available such as the SK Seri Relau, SK Bayan Lepas, Chung Cheng Primary School, Heng Ee Secondary School, Straits International School and Fairview International School.
For daily essentials and retail therapies, residents of Casa Rica can head to popular shopping malls within the vicinity that includes Giant Hypermarket, Sunshine Square and Queensbay Mall. A myriad of food and beverage outlets, retail outlets and other amenities can be found at commercial centres and retail hubs, all within a 5km radius.
Up-coming affordable homes
For seekers of a more affordable home, rest assured that another prestigious development by S P Setia is expected to be launched in Q3 of 2023. This upcoming development is located at the fringe of the established township of Bayan Lepas and is a mere stroll away from the Penang International Airport.
To be built on 2.6 acres of freehold land, this condominium will only house 480 units, one of the lowest density high-rise affordable residential buildings in the area.
Named Setia Miracca, it boasts a green panorama, giving residents a view of the sea and Bayan Lepas township, the best scape of both worlds. It is designed for modern living with ample outdoor spaces for relaxation and offers extensive lifestyle facilities for residents. The show unit will be available for viewing during the Chinese New Year Open House. For further enquiries, call 604-6412255 or 604-2828255. Scan the QR code to register for the event now.
