Renowned as the most prestigious neighbourhood in the Klang Valley, Bukit Jelutong is a sanctuary like no other offering a low-density atmosphere in a prime land. In fact, it is an award winning property sprawled across 2,200 acres of freehold land where Forte, a high end 2-storey bungalow project is nestled in.
A Hefty Price Tag
Sime Darby’s subsidiary, Guthrie Property Holding Berhad (GPHD) is the developer for the said residential project. It will include a total of 40 units of luxurious and exclusive bungalows with land areas from 8,036 sq.ft to as much as 14,775 sq. ft. As for build-up sizes of the units, it can range from 5,516 sq.ft. to 6,186 sq.ft.
Renowned for its stellar commercial and residential developments, Sime Darby has been in the business of delivering upscale properties in prime lands. Among its many projects are the East Residence in KLCC and the Avalon in USJ Heights. The group has also ventured and expanded abroad including in affluent sites such as Eagle’s Cove, Australia and Orion, Singapore.
Therefore, it is to be expected that the Forte bungalows demands a hefty price tag considering the award-winning location, the prime land and the architectural masterpiece. All 40 units have 5+2 bedrooms and 6+1 bathrooms, but there are 6 layout designs to choose from. After completion in 2011, Forte units had a launch price which started from RM2.8 million while the subscale price started from RM3.6M onwards.
