Location

image3

The location of Setia Eco Glades in Cyberjaya is one that is highly strategic. It is situated next to the Cyberjaya Lake Garden and is surrounded by over 500 MSC-status companies and multinational corporations like Shell, IBM, HSBC, DHL and Motorola. At the same time, it is also home to several government agencies such as MDeC, MCMC and LHDN and a stone’s throw away from various ministerial complexes in Putrajaya.

While the additions are great for the residence, the real positional advantage that Setia Eco Glades holds is its direct access to the ELITE Highway and Maju Expressway (MEX). Sandwiched between the two entry points, you will find driving in and out of the city extremely quick and convenient from this prestigious enclave.

Analysis

 

Name Tenure/ Land Title Price (per Sq Ft) Maintenance Fee (per Sq Ft) Car Park Bays
Isles of Kamares- Setia Eco Glades (SP Setia) Freehold/ Residential RM550 RM0.30 2 basement carparks
Courtyard Villa- Sejati Residences (Paramount) Freehold/ Residential RM420 RM0.10 Porch
Opus Residences (Crystalville) Freehold/ Residential RM400 Porch


At RM550 psf, Isles of Kamares is not a very price friendly townhouse development to begin with. It has a much smaller built-up area than the neighbouring villa and semi-D units, but costs almost as expensive as them at RM900,000- RM1,000,000. Considering that it charges a monthly maintenance fee of RM0.30 psf as well, it will cost you quite a fortune to stay here.

However, the development itself is top class and exclusively limited to just 17 units per acre. It also features its own clubhouse and is surrounded by beautiful lakes and islands. So, if you are looking for a private and sophisticated home and are willing to pay a premium for it, Isle of Kamares is certainly worth the money.

Summary

 

Isle of Kamares Artist Impression

A panoramic vista of the Isles of Kamares

When it comes to a top quality residential developments, not many are deemed worthy of it in Cyberjaya. Not Setia Eco Glades though, as it is a brilliantly planned township with impressive designs and classy amenities. In fact, it is also a haven of peace and serenity with over 40 different species of plants and trees and beautiful private islands.

Perhaps its greatest selling point is its developer’s brand power. With SP Setia at the helm, you can expect only the best in development and infrastructure works for the residence. While it probably deserves praise for its excellent workmanship, affordability wise, not so much.

The Isles of Kamares, for example, costs between RM900,000 to RM1 million and will not be affordable to many. Those who can pay for it, however, will relish the chance to enjoy its premium class facilities and architectures. In the end, Setia Eco Glades is a premium priced residency with premium class quality.
