The first phase of Gamuda Gardens’ Illaria Hillside Homes was launched in October 2020, and units were snapped up during its special 2-hour preview.         

With a gross development value (GDV) of RM257mil, Illaria Hillside Homes sits on a 9.39-acre park. The houses incorporate multi-functional designs, and take into consideration the changes in lifestyle and what homebuyers look for as a result of the pandemic and quarantine experience.

Illaria Hillside Homes focuses on its community and social spaces

Illaria Hillside Homes focuses on its community and social spaces. Residents can look forward to the scenic view of Gamuda Gardens, or spend nights stargazing from the hilltop viewing platform. At the 8.89-acre private park within the precinct, residents can also find an outdoor playground, obstacle course, and a yoga space for residents. 

There’s also a community garden, fruit orchard, and a Sakura Lane, on top of co-living amenities such as a community kitchen, a barbecue area, and a hilltop co-working space.

The developer highlighted that this is the first development in Gamuda Gardens, where the landed homes are priced from RM480,000. So, it’s designed and priced right for the current market.

The developer also held an e-launch on 12 December 2020. Apart from Illaria, there were 2 other projects launched in 2019 – Jovita (linked semi-d), and Joya (superlink homes).

Project Details

Illaria Hillside Homes is located at the peak of Gamuda Gardens, and it features 3-storey townhouses and 2-storey link homes, with 3 to 4 bedrooms. The land areas of Illaria Hillside homes vary from 18′ x 65′ to 22′ x 70′.

There’s also a community garden, fruit orchard, and a Sakura Lane, on top of co-living amenities such as a community kitchen, a barbecue area, and a hilltop co-working space.

 

Illaria has been planned with the advice of feng shui expert, Joey Yap. He said that the hillside living at Illaria is embraced by the ‘Green Dragon’ which symbolises luck, while the layout of the hillside homes expresses the ‘Jade Pillow’ formation which brings intelligence, power, and wealth. Plus, the two hills in Illaria represent the ‘Heavenly Wealth Stars’, which depict wealth and prosperity for the residents.

Illaria’s layout takes into consideration of the extra hours people are spending at home due to the pandemic. Therefore, the home space has been extended into the outdoor. Community living is a key component as the precinct will have a community kitchen, co-working space, community farming, outdoor barbeque area, yoga deck, and putting green. 

Selected units at Illaria will feature an open kitchen with direct access to a backyard, where space can be used for outdoor dining, play area, or gardening. Space is also seamlessly connected to a multi-purpose room which can be turned into a home office, hobby room, workshop, and so on. This provided flexibility to residents to customise the space according to their needs.
