Ideally settled in one of Penang’s steadily growing neighbourhood in Bukit Gambier is a freehold condominium that’s aptly named Ideal Regency. Also referred by some as i-Regency, the resort-inspired development was completed in December 2009 by Cygal Properties Sdn Bhd, the same brand behind Vista Harmoni located in Cheras, Kuala Lumpur.
Characterized with a distinctive semi-detached concept, Ideal Regency is easy to spot boasting 5 blocks of high rises allowing potential buyers to bask in sky high views and scenic sea vistas. Of the 5 blocks, some are 21 storeys high while others are mid-rise with only 8 storeys. But all in all, the development has a total of 194 units, a mix of condo villas and sky villas.
Choices, Configuration & Price
Three types of layout designs comprise the condominium – Condo Villa Type 1, 2 and Sky Villas. Each unit comes with 3 bedrooms plus 2 bathrooms creating a cozy and comfortable abode amidst a developing neighbourhood. Naturally, built-up size vary from type to type and when categorized by area, the choices are as follows:
> Condo Villa Type 1 – 1,325 sq.ft.
> Condo Villa Type 2 – 1,500 sq.ft.
> Sky Villa – 1,200 sq.ft.
Discerning buyers also have the option to choose according to one’s preference with regard to exclusivity. Ideal for those desiring more privacy are the condo villas since there are only two units per floor. Sky Villas, on one hand, are arranged with 10 units per floor making the set-up mid-density. Nonetheless, it’s just as good as a prospect with its enviable views of the surrounding panorama.
