A four-bedroom apartment will be put up for auction by Knight Frank on Jan 17. An owner’s sale, assistant manager Karen Ker of Knight Frank is handling the auction. This is the second time the property will be put up for auction and the guide price is $4.65 million. It measures 2,012 sq ft and is tenanted until July 1.
The unit, which will be sold with the existing tenancy, features a private lift lobby which leads directly to the home’s entrance. There is a foyer, a living and dining area as well as a balcony with unblocked views of Orchard Road, a wet and dry kitchen, a service yard, a utility room and a powder room. Two of the apartment’s four bedrooms are en suite.
The most recent apartment to change hands at St Thomas Suites is a 26th-floor, 1,819 sq ft unit that was sold for $4.15 million ($2,281 psf) on June 30, 2022. The highest psf price recorded at the development was in September 2011, when a penthouse unit measuring 7,686 sq ft was sold for $22.33 million ($2,905 psf).
Ker expects the property to be of interest to prospective buyers as it is within walking distance of the Orchard Road shopping belt and 400m away from Somerset MRT Station on the North-South Line. Also nearby are River Valley Primary School at River Valley Green, Anglo-Chinese School (Junior) at Winstedt Road, Alexandra Primary School at Prince Charles Crescent, Singapore Chinese Girls’ School at Dunearn Road and Gan Eng Seng School at Henderson Road, making this a very attractive option for families with school-going children.
