Our Final Thoughts
Though Richmont Residences is not your typical residential enclave, it has substantially appealed to growing families looking for a reasonably priced spacious terrace house in Penang. In essence, the development is all about being pragmatic. It neither an enviable view to covet for or a luxurious elegance luring investors unlike other enclaves. What it has is a stretch of generously spacious terrace links with enough rooms for families to settle down comfortably.
Instead of focusing on luxury, the development zeroed in on security and practicality. Gated and guarded, the setting is ideal for safe and peaceful living. However, privacy may not be as optimized given the side by side car porches. Nonetheless, the launch price of RM608,000 minimum for a 2,700 sq.ft. terrace house seems reasonably attractive.
