Experience the finest modern luxuries and indulgences that only Gurney Drive in Penang can provide through one of its esteemed high-rises – the Silverton. Located within the bounty and wonder of Penang Island, said condominium project is a sight to behold not to mention that it is one of the most luxurious in the area. Rightfully tagged as one of Gurney Drive’s prominent landmark, the freehold development boasts close proximity to the beach as well as topnotch amenities.
Unprecedented Exclusivity Awaits
Rising high at 36 storeys, Silverton is proud and imposing housing a total of very limited and exclusive 70 units. With emphasis on providing unprecedented exclusivity, there are only 2 units per floor giving you the privacy you deserve. All units are generously spacious plus each one is a corner unit privileged with breathtaking and gorgeous views of lush landscaping and the Straits of Malacca.
There are two types of layouts to choose from – standard and penthouse. And Silverton’s benchmark for its standard units is next to none commanding an expanse that measures from 4,120 to 4,230 sq.ft. Penthouses are even more majestic in its size tripling the standard unit at 12,370 sq.ft. Meticulously designed, each unit bore the characteristics of quality and innovation making it an enviable choice for its target market – the high-earning and affluent locals and international investors as well as expatriates.
Just for Silverton units’ sheer sizability and strategic location, a steep price tag is to be expected. And it is so with the subsale price set from RM1.75 million to RM3.8 million while rental is competitively set from RM6,000 to RM8,500.

Indulge in Luxuries and Finest Pleasures
Silverton is dubbed one of the most luxurious in Gurney Drive for good reasons. Apart from ultra spacious units and unparalleled exclusivity, the development is famous for its extensive collection of modern facilities. Starting from its 24-hour security system to fitness facilities and lifestyle features, dwellers are welcomed to indulge, luxuriate and enjoy life to its fullest. Included in the condominium’s long list of facilities are the following:
> rock waterfall
> landscape garden
> swimming & wading pools
> tennis & squash court
> children’s playground
> water slide
> games room
> reading room
Other features include a visitor’s lounge, common bathroom and an intercom system for greater conveniences. Each unit also comes with a carpark at the development’s dedicated multi-storey area.
What a Location is Worth
No doubt that a huge part of Silverton’s charm is close proximity to amenities. Within a short drive away are the Gurney Plaza, several schools and medical centres including the premier Gleaneagles and Penang Adventist. From there, residents can head over to the greater Georgetown area where more amenities are located. In terms of accessibility, the site is easily reachable via private and public transport. The proposed Second Penang Bridge Link and other road projects will soon bring connectivity for the development to the next level.
While Silverton sells itself with its magnificence, incomparably spacious units and strategic locale, some minor drawbacks should be factored in. For one, traffic in Gurney Drive can be pretty heavy throughout the day. Another issue that’s been brought up is the development’s rather small entrance which can hamper residents’ ease of going in and out the development. There’s also the issue of noise especially during peak hours when numerous motorcycles are passing by Gurney Drive.
It has also been observed that Silverton’s price has declined considerably over the years. For discerning investors, that can be a good thing. Buying low now means high potential for appreciation in the future. To know more about the property’s fair market value today, keep scrolling below and you’ll find our free ebook guide on valuation.
