Cluster Houses

Aside from location, the Singaporean real estate market is also defined by housing availability or lack of it. With a land area of 716.1 square kilometers, the city-state of Singapore offers limited availability of housing options for its residents and expats. While variety of real estate properties and features are on the premium side, the available number of units for sale is often a problem. This led to the government’s decision to apply restrictions on the ownership of prime residential properties, particularly for detached houses, and started to support initiatives to expand housing options in the city-state.

The result is the construction of cost-effective but highly liveable housing units that include cluster houses. In Singapore real estate, cluster houses refer to landed houses with strata title that will cover terraces, semi-detached houses, bungalows or a mix of these housing types. These types of properties in Singapore have become a great alternative for real estate shoppers who are looking for properties that are cost-effective, comfortable and highly inconvenient.

Offering Instant Access to Shared Facilities and Amenities

Since cluster houses are constructed in a single lot or property, homeowners will have communal access to the property’s features and amenities. Popular features and amenities that are often included in cluster houses include communal pools, tennis and basketball courts and exercise gyms.

One popular complex in the city is the Illoura, a cluster house complex located in Old Holland Road, an area known for Good Class Bungalows. The complex features 30 four-storey semi-detached and detached cluster houses that offer a great view of the 25-meter swimming pool. The complex also offers homeowners with a gym, 24-hour security, clubhouse and jacuzzi. There is also a lushly landscaped open area for those who want to lounge around. For these amenities, an interested property buyer will have to pay at least $4.5 million to $5.3 million. There are other top-rated cluster houses in Singapore, and all these are tied by a singular element- allowing homeowners to access communal facilities and amenities.

For the past few years, there have been dozens of cluster house developments to accommodate the growing real estate market. The newer properties in the market usually feature 4 to 5 bedrooms that are spaced big enough to accommodate basic living requirements. In some developments, gardens are provided but these are often small in size. Also, cluster houses may feature basements and terraces. Thanks to these amenities and features, cluster houses are now considered favourites in a highly competitive market. These properties are now the choices for expatriates who are looking for the next best alternatives to detached bungalows.

Compared with Good Class Bungalows and detached bungalows, cluster houses are readily available in the market. Plans and new developments are regularly announced, thus helping augment the limited availability of prime landed properties. Cost-wise, cluster houses are also great buys in the market since they offer exclusivity and access to comfortable and secure features, from pools to 24/7 security. Also, these properties are available for rent, with rent ranging from $5,000 to $15,000 monthly, depending on specifications and amenities.

Unlike detached houses and Good Class Bungalows, there is no stress involved when it comes to maintaining the property. The management assumes the responsibility of managing and maintaining the whole complex. In short, homeowners will experience a “care-free and privileged lifestyle”. There is no need to worry about sudden changes in design and layout since these communities are subject to planning control guidelines. All these services come at a price though- homeowners will need to pay monthly maintenance fees that will range from $250 to more than $700 monthly.
