Vista Sentul Residences entice with freehold living in a matured town at attainable prices.
SENTUL's often forgotten legacy as a historic railway town can be traced back to 1905, serving as the nation's premier hub for the repair for locomotives. The Sentul of today, however, is the prime target of urban dwellers and investors seeking close proximity to downtown Kuala Lumpur. Marking a new era for the history books, the rapid re-development of the matured town has been a new frontier for a host of new developments leveraging on the great potential of the locality.
Amongst the most enticing of such developments will be Vista Sentul Residences by Platinum Victory, scheduled for completion in September 2023. Vista Sentul Residences offers the lure of freehold ownership within earshot of Kuala Lumpur's city centre. The 705 units of suite apartments offer built-up ranges from 689 sqft onwards in two or three-bedroom layouts. The combination of a strategic location, convenience and living space often comes at a premium, yet prices start from only RM329,800.
The crème de la crème of Vista Sentul Residences’ suite apartments are surely the 1,216 sqft dual-key units, ideal for own-stay and investment. Dual-key units have two sub-unit types within a single property. Typically a studio and two-bedroom sub-unit will share a common foyer or main entrance that precedes the entrance into each sub-unit. To put it simply, it's akin to owning two properties sharing a common entry-point for the price of one.
Consequently, the functionalities of Vista Sentul Residences’ dual-key units entails numerous benefits. Homebuyers can have family members move-in to the adjacent sub-unit without compromising on privacy. Suited to current times, the sub-unit may also function as a dedicated space to work-from-home or serve to isolate family members feeling under the weather.
Alternatively, owners may opt to rent out either unit to ease mortgage payments. For investors, renting out each sub-unit could yield better rental returns than the room rentals within a standard unit. Coupled with the strategic location and rejuvenation of Sentul, Vista Sentul Residences presents a sensible option for prudent homebuyers.
Despite the fair asking prices, no expenses were spared in the facilities. The suite apartments include a swimming pool, wading pool, lounge, multipurpose room, gym and yoga/ dancing studio. More novel facilities include a sandpit, games room, AV room, library, community herb garden, kids' playscape and adults playscape.
The perks of living in a matured town are evident with ease of accessibility and convenience due in part to abundant amenities. The Ong Tai Kim Supermarket is merely 650m away from the development. Within 2km is the Urban Transformation Centre (UTC) Sentul which lends heavily to convenience. The building hosts the National Registration Department (NRD), Road Transport Department (JPJ), Immigration and the Inland Revenue Board (LHDN).
Private hospitals in the area include the Sentul Medical Centre and KPJ Tawakal. The nation's premier public healthcare institution, Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL), is also a short drive away. Recreational amenities in the vicinity include Sentul Park and Taman Tasik Titiwangsa. Residents with an appreciation for arts and culture will relish the opportunity of living near Balai Seni Negara, Istana Budaya and the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (KLPAC).
A myriad of local and vernacular schools embellish the development. SK Sentul 2, Chong Hwa Independent High School, St Joseph Tamil Primary School and the Chi Man Chinese Primary School are less than 1km away from Vista Sentul Residences. Other nearby primary schools include SJK(C) Lai Chee, SJK(C) Sentul KL, SRJK(C) Chong Hwa, SK Kampung Batu and SK Delima.
As for secondary schools, the Convent Sentul Secondary School and SMK La Salle Sentul are within walking distance. SMK (Perempuan) Jalan Ipoh and SMJK Chong Hwa are then 2.0km and 3.2km away respectively. Residents who prefer an international school have the option of Wesley Methodist School Kuala Lumpur, just 1.6km away.
True to its origins as a historic railway town, Sentul still enjoys excellent rail connectivity with LRT Sentul (1.9km) and KTM Sentul (2.9km) near the apartment. Existing rail infrastructure will soon be complemented by the MRT Sentul West (2.3km), expected to be completed by 2022.
Needless to say, the location of Sentul is within reach of major roads in Kuala Lumpur. Among the best shopping malls and entertainment spots the country has to offer are just a short drive away. Residents of Vista Sentul Residences also gain from easy access to the Duta-Ulu Klang Expressway.
A strategic location with excellent connectivity and abundant amenities in the neighbourhood are typically key ingredients that add value to a development. All of which Vista Sentul Residences offers at attainable prices for the average Malaysian seeking the merits of city living. With the added practicality of the larger dual-key units in the mix, Vista Sentul Residences is set to be an irresistible offer for the wise homeowner or investor.
