This is the land of the rich, the moneyed, and the luxurious. Hardly any real estate property here of any form – town homes, condominiums, semi-detached homes, and bungalows – would be any less than RM 1 million. In fact, you’d be lucky to get a small unfurnished condo unit under RM 1.5 million. The lowest you can go on price per square foot value on a Federal Hill property would probably have to be roughly about RM720. And that’s even rare. 🙂
But that is quite fair – at least from PropertyReviews.my editors’ point of view. Really. To the many real estate investors, local and expatriate homeowners, and the plain patrons of good and outstanding home designs, the properties here on Federal Hill are well worth it. For one, many of the properties and buildings here hold historical value. The earliest of developments here have started at the height of the British colonial rule in Malaysia. The grandest of bungalows in the area have also been used in the 50s to house state rulers and other important government personalities – including a Prime Minister.
And that is not even all the credit it holds.

Closer To Nature
Federal Hill (also known as Bukit Persekutuan) is one of those few areas that is surrounded by awesome natural greenery but is still within close proximity with the urban landscapes. So whilst the residents are enjoying the conveniences of their city lifestyle with KLCC being close by and the thriving Bangsar urban landscapes literally just within the vicinity, they are also enjoying some of the most beautiful views not to mention the freshest air in probably all of urban Malaysia.
The natural reserve park that engulfs the beautiful 18-acre grand estate of Federal Hill holds some of the best, rarest flora and fauna in the world; many of which are endemic only to the Malaysian rainforests. No wonder this is a favorite not only of real estate investors and buyers but of nature lovers as well. And of nature-loving real estate investors too.
And if it is any convenience to the conservatives, the area is not getting any further developments and they are likely to preserve the park for much, much longer.
(Pocket) Damage, Inc
The homes and condo units here could be as small and average-sized as 2,500 sq. ft. but the largest ones – the private bungalows – can be as huge as three-storey, 6-bedroom houses that can measure up to 12,000 sq. ft. Some may be even bigger. And these huge mansions could be well over RM 6-8 million in price tag. Definitely not something for the average real estate buyer, and may well not be within the budget of the so-called high-end.
Everything about the Federal Hill is picturesque. And it feels just as great as it seems – to the senses and the ego. To live in the Federal hill, with its glorious history and current flare, it is indeed a pretty glorious experience. And that makes a good reason to pay for a home in 6 maybe even 7 digits. If you’ve got the dough, this may well be where you could place your bets and win big in the capital yield game. 🙂
Federal Hill is a different ball game altogether, and should not lumped with the pansy “luxurious condominiums” in the KLCC enclave or at Mont Kiara. The bungalows are comparable to that of Bukit Tunku (Kenny Hill), Damansara Heights and some older landed properties at Ampang Hilir (or Embassy Row). It can be notoriously difficult to ascertain the “fair market value” for bungalows at Federal Hill simply because transacted deals are usually discreet and small in number.
