Advantages of a Prime Location
Sited in a prime and mature neighbourhood in Petaling Jaya, the leasehold townhouse development is close to a plethora of amenities. Shopping, for one, is exciting and varied in the area with several malls close by. The nearest hypermarket is Tesco where you can shop for essentials. When it comes to upscale retail therapy, complexes such as The Curve, One Utama and Ikea are great destinations.
When it comes to education, some of the notable choices for parents to look into include Segi College, Sri KDU and Kolej Bandar Utama amongst othes. Recreation is never out of reach either with golf courses a stone’s throw away.
Another plus for Challis Damansara is excellent connectivity. Keeping the property linked to key destinations in Selangor and nearby townships are major highways including LDP, NKVE, SPRINT and Penchala Link.
BCA Green Mark certified, Challis Damansara joins another Sunway City property, Sunway Palazzio, who also nabbed the same award. It is a clear indication of the developer’s commitment to create eco-friend, efficient and quality homes in prime locations. Despite the recognitions, however, there were some drawbacks worth looking into if you’re contemplating about property investment.
While in a prime location, Sunway Damansara has been aggressively developed over the years rapidly increasing the area’s density. Consequently, growth led to an ever increasing problem with traffic. Another drawback that seems to dampen the residential’s appeal are the visible power lines which pose risks and unpleasant view. The fact that it is on leasehold tenure is another minus given that there are similar options in nearby townships offering freehold tenure.
Given the pros and cons, Challis Damansara’s appeal as an investment prospect will now depend on its fair market value. To check that, below is a free ebook guide to help you along.
