What is a Belysa EC Suite Unit?

On May 1, 2011, in Belysa, by Sales

Belysa EC offers both 3 & 4 bedroom Suite units. These are actually Dual Key units, that comprise 2 separate standalone apartments with individual keys, both being accessed from a common foyer.

Here is the floor plan of the Belysa 3 bedroom dual key or suite unit:

The 4-bedroom version is similar, except that the bigger side would have 3 bedrooms instead of 2 which, added to the studio unit bedroom, makes a total of 4 bedrooms.

You can use the whole unit as one big apartment (with the studio acting as a junior master), or house different generations in the two – grandparents, parents or adult children.

Wonderful for family members to look out for each other or help keep an eye on young children while maintaining independence and privacy. Or rent out one side – great for extra income!

You can see the range of different unit types at Belysa Floor Plans.



Another freehold project will be launching for sale in the District 15 area of Singapore soon, called Amber Sea. Like the Ramford and unlike Belysa EC, it will be a private condominium.

Whilst Belysa is an executive condominium, on 99 year leasehold land in a HDB estate and with restrictions placed upon who can buy them, the Amber Sea condo can be purchased without restrictions. Foreigners can buy them too, but are subject to a higher Additional Buyer Stamp Duty (ABSD) rate.

Hence this project will be a lot pricier, possibly as much as three times the price of Belysa.

Besides its freehold status, Amber Sea has the advantage of being located in an exclusive private residential estate on the fringe of the city centre. It is barely 15 minutes drive from the downtown area around Raffles Place. It is also opposite East Coast Park and beach.

Better still, high floor units facing south should be able to get panoramic sea views to the horizon, mostly unblocked. The sea breezes here should be quite windy, as there are no high rise buildings between Amber Sea and the beach.

The other advantage that the Amber Sea condo enjoys over Belysa, is its proximity to an MRT station. You would have to wait a bit for the Thomson East Coast Line here to be completed, probably in 2023. But once that happens, the nearest entrance to Tanjong Katong MRT station will be less than 3 minutes walk or 180 metres away.

From this station, it will be one train stop to Parkway Parade at Marine Parade MRT station. You can get practically everything you need there. And of course, if you would rather walk, you can actually get to Parkway Parade in less than 20 minutes. It could make for a pleasant stroll after dinner at the mall there, with a bit of grocery shopping thrown in.

The Amber Sea floor plans are not quite quite ready yet. But it is expected to house around 130 to 140 apartment units, with a height of around 28 floors.
