If you’re looking for something where you can hear the noises of the city round the clock, this is definitely not what you’re looking for (perhaps try a KLCC condominium!). Setia Impian cannot give you the boisterous songs of the urban jungle – no loud music, no live entertainment, nothing other than the bliss of suburban living.
Many Shah Alam townships can boast of exclusivity, but only a chosen few – like Setia Impian – can assure you that your local movie house and bar can stay where it is and off of your children’s bedrooms.
And this is perhaps what makes it such an ideal choice for parents with growing children. The restrictions placed by the Shah Alam city council on entertainment establishments have paid off with a very good reception and appreciation from the Setia Impian residents.
Setia Impian is located inside Setia Alam which means that it is close to Setia Indah and Setia Damai. With names are generically similar like this, you shouldn’t be expecting much difference between them if at all. Indeed, there are no significant variances between them in terms of pricing; we see asking prices ranging from RM350 – 650 PSF depending on specific location and state of furnishing.

Details, Details, Details…
There are basically two types of houses to choose from at Setia Impian: the terrace homes and the semi-detached homes both of which are two-storey houses. Each house at the Setia Impian was made with the modern Malaysian family in mind, having 4 – 5 bedrooms and 3-4 bathrooms for each. Terrace houses come with built up sizes of 2,600 sf while semi-D’s have built-up sizes of 3,000 sf.
As far as pricing is concerned, it is quite relieving to know that the homes here are just as friendly as the environment they have created in the neighborhood. You can easily get a full-furnished terraced home between the high RM 300,000’s and RM 500,000’s and a fully furnished 2-storey semi-D would go well up over a RM 700,000. To some potential buyers, these are fair prices as it is becoming nigh impossible to get a decent (and relatively new) landed property in more “central” places; even locations like Puchong are seeing tremendous pricing hikes (places like Bandar Puteri come to mind). Shah Alam is fast emerging as an alternative of sorts with the mushrooming of townships such as Setia Alam as well as the “pioneering” Kota Kemuning and Ken Rimba.
Apart from the apparent peace and quiet, Setia Impian can also boast of a relatively simple lifestyle that is close to the comforts and convenience of city living – sans the noise of course. For one, Setia Impian is a self-sufficient township. Setia Impian residents need not go out of the Setia Alam premises just to get to a clinic, a coffee shop or restaurant, petrol station and any other commercial establishment you’d likely need. And if you do need to go out, it would be for any of the public establishments and facilities that are all within very short driving distance. Tesco Setia Alam and Giant Hypermarket are the closest supermarkets, and there’s always the Setia City Mall to accommodate bigger shopping needs. And it is extra convenient for parents to know that there are a good variety of schools to choose from within 3 kilometers of Setia Impian including SJK Pin Hwa Klang 1, Tenby International, and SJK Bandar Bukit Rajah.
Setia Impian may fall a bit short on the in-house facilities as it could only boast of a park and a jogging trail plus 24-hour community security but it can hardly be beat in the convenience and accessibility department. Apart from being close to the aforementioned establishments, Setia Impian is also a breeze to the commuting resident. Klang Sentral and Klang Sentral Terminals A and B are less than 3 kilometers away from Setia Impian. Furthermore, it is also easily accessed for private vehicles via Jalan Meru and Persiaran Setia Prima.
What We Think
Setia Alam is yet another SP Setia township, and as you might have noticed from the property reviews that we have posted here we have turned into fanboys of sorts… although we have some slight misgivings about some of its properties (why does Setiawalk have such sucky internet connection, Mr Liew?). Branded developers are a strong consideration nowadays with escalating cases of abandoned projects, and we are happy to note that SP Setia seems to have got its shit together, well, most of the time. 🙂
There are not lots to differentiate between Setia Impian, Setia Indah and Setia Damai (Duta Villa, on the other hand, is another kettle of fish altogether despite being in the same cluster within Setia Alam), which means that the buyer may be spoiled for choice if he or she decides to invest in a unit here. These are homes which do exactly what it says on the can – spacious living spaces suitable for raising families. Investment-wise, these are properties which appeal to buyers who prefer landed, freehold properties with competitive price tags (less than a million bucks – correct at the time of the publication of this review).
Figuring out Setia Impian’s fair market price is not that tricky especially when there are already similar developments in the same vicinity.
