ErgoHomes-Hazelton, Eco Forest, Semenyih

  • 31 March 2020

ErgoHomes is nestled in Eco Forest’s second precinct called Hazelton. This is a project by Eco World Development Group Bhd (EcoWorld Malaysia) in Semenyih, Selangor. It is a first-of-its-kind development in the country with a concept that puts a fresh spin to terraced living.

Unlike traditional terrace houses. every ErgoHomes unit is designed to be a corner unit. It will feature unique grouping that allows all four homes to be corner units. This concept means that every home will have its own private garden, and all the pluses that come with living in a corner unit. There are only 57 units of ErgoHomes. This low-density living means fewer people within an area with generous green spaces.

The road leading to Eco Forest is lined with trees and the temperature in the area is fairly low. According to divisional general manager Evon Yap, the temperature is 2°C lower than in the cities and towns due to the many trees and forest in the area.

ErgoHomes is a 2-storey cluster terraced house development of 123 units, located in the Hazelton precinct of Eco Forest.

Eco Forest is a township about 10 minutes away from Broga Hill. The 515-acre mixed development township feels like a resort, providing you with fresh outdoors and modern living. The freehold, double-storey houses of ErgoHomes are location within a gated and guarded development.

Apart from ErgoHomes, Hazelton will offer Garden Homes (30ft by 65ft terraced houses), and Artisan Homes (20ft by 65ft, and 20ft by 70ft, terraced houses) across 50.26 acres.

The “Ergo” in the project’s name comes from the word ergonomics. The development is inspired by the science of ergonomics, which involves understanding the interaction between humans and other elements of a system.

Prior to designing ErgoHomes, the developer conducted a survey and found that most of the potential buyers were Gen Y who wanted a house that was affordable yet spacious enough. Their preference leaned towards landed properties.

Project Details

ErgoHomes is a 2-storey cluster terraced house development of 123 units, located in the Hazelton precinct of Eco Forest. Hazelton’s first phase comprises 57 units of ErgoHomes, and 53 units of Garden Homes. The precinct’s A-frame houses open to scenic views of the Central Park and Broga Hills.

The units at ErgoHomes will have built-ups of 1,883 sq ft and 2,290 sq ft, and the selling price starts from RM522,000. It is a landed strata-titled development, and there will be a monthly maintenance fee of RM200. Vehicles will be prohibited from the roads between the houses.

The units at ErgoHomes will have built-ups of 1,883 sq ft and 2,290 sq ft, and the selling price starts from RM522,000.

All units at ErgoHomes will be shaped like an “L” and each cluster will have four units. This means each house will be a corner unit with a 15ft by 15ft private garden. Home owners can transform that space into anything they want, such as an edible garden, barbeque area, plunge pool and others. The L-shaped design also allows natural light into the unit from all sides, with many windows around the house.

The common areas – the living, dining and kitchen areas –  will be 30ft wide. The staircase will be placed in one corner to free up the space for owners to create what they want. That way, the layout becomes efficient and flexible.

The developer decided to build ErgoHomes in Eco Forest because there is a ready group of customers in the area.

Each unit will have a 30ft by 15ft master bedroom, including a bathroom, which will be separated into wet and dry areas. The space will be big enough to accommodate a king-sized bed and a walk-in wardrobe.

ErgoHomes will also feature the two passion areas; on the ground and first floor. These areas can be converted into anything the home owners want, such as a home office, another kitchen, a music area, and so on. The communal and passion areas will have full views of the private garden.

With prices starting from RM522,000, ErgoHomes gives you the opportunity to own landed property at an affordable price. Space, flexibility and affordability are three key selling points for ErgoHomes.

Those seeking even more space could take a look at Garden Homes, which are also in the same precinct in Eco Forest.

The units at ErgoHomes will have built-ups of 1,883 sq ft and 2,290 sq ft, and the selling price starts from RM522,000.
