Situated at the end of a quiet cul-desac off Lucky Heights in District 16, two adjacent land-plots of 8,750 sq ft, originally under a single title, have been purchased by the family of a businessman, Mr Wee. Both houses, a semi-detached home at 11 Lucky View and a detached home at 17 Lucky View, are being commissioned with the intent of building a multi-generational home.
Mr Wee wanted to integrate the family’s Peranakan heritage and their worldly experiences into the design of the two homes, and thus engaged Winco Construct & Decor, as well as Nic & Wes Builders, to incorporate the diverse ideas into a cohesive outcome.
Both houses offer a captivating view of the surrounding estate, with an unblocked view of the 11 Lucky View semi-detached home and a new bungalow currently being constructed at 17 Lucky View.
The family’s vision was to create a spacious space where friends and family could come together and interact. To this end, the six-bedroom homes are more than adequate to function as a multigenerational home. There is ample room to add an additional bedroom in the semi-detached home, and the bungalow has a dedicated lift and a basement car park that can house up to six cars, and even the potential for conversion of the basement space into bedrooms.
At 11 Lucky View, the semi-detached home features a contemporary look, accentuated with unique perforated panels along the facade from the second floor up. The family’s private art collection, including an intriguing art-piece by Chinese cartoonist Hou Xiaoqiang, decorate the walls to add a personal touch. The basement level is complemented with a pool in a cave-like setting, reminiscent of sun-bleached cave houses in Santorini, Greece.
On the other hand, the 4,882 sq ft detached home at 17 Lucky View takes on a colonial style, taking inspiration from Singapore’s Raffles Hotel and the original Raffles Institution building. The house is characterized by whitewashed walls, Palladian windows and outdoor terraces on the second and third floors, all with ornate balustrades.
It features two identical 24-storey towers, which will house up to 579 residential units. Residents can enjoy exclusive amenities such as a gym, swimming pool, tennis court, jogging track, and a 24-hour concierge service. The Champions Way Condo has been designed to meet the needs of today’s modern lifestyle, giving you the perfect balance between luxurious living and convenience. With its convenient Woodlands location, the property provides easy access to shopping malls, public transport, business districts, and numerous recreational activities. This world-class development offers a range of living options ideal for home buyers and investors.
The two properties, listed with a price tag of $20 million, will be open for tender on Sept 2. With prices from $8.5 million for the semi-detached home and from $12 million for the bungalow, the transacted price works out to $2,286 psf over their combined land area of 8,750 sq ft.
The Wees are aware that the pandemic has caused considerable disruption to the construction timetable of the two houses, but are glad that they have been able to take their time in ensuring that everything is built to their satisfaction.
Haden Hee of PropNex Realty believes the homes will attract strong interest from prospective buyers, especially taking into account the freehold nature of the site, the impressive location and the lack of further fees for reconstruction. The tender for 11 and 17 Lucky View will close on Oct 8.
