Project Details

PROJECT OPENING PIC

Ponderosa Woods

Ponderosa woods is the new township and flagship development of Rawhide Sdn Bhd. This 31-acre freehold, low density private sanctuary of very modern, very spacious and exquisitely-designed twin villas or semi-Ds (some with additional lower ground floor with bubble lifts and porch space outside enough to park 5 to 10 cars), gets to enjoy all the benefits of the adjacent Ponderosa Golf and Country Club, and all the salubrious wonders of Mother Nature at its most magnificent.

Coveted 122

Why? Because 40% (and that’s almost half) of the 31 acres of the development parcel has been reserved as a green lung for residents. In terms of open spaces, rolling landscapes and fresh, green horizons as therapy for the mind, body and soul, Ponderosa Woods offers communing with nature in healthy, wholesome outdoor pursuits like no other.

There is purpose to the lush, greenness of the Woods blending in with harmonious architecture as you enter your stately residence. With multi-tiered security features both inside and outside of the home ─ all this is designed to secure your total peace of mind.

Recently, 58 units of these luxury 3-story twin villas were launched. There are only 122 of these units planned altogether. As mentioned, this development is super low density. All the units boast of land areas of 50’ by 100’ not to mention private garden size of up to 500sq ft.

But step outside the residential boundaries and you are at once greeted by the 3-Storey commercial shop offices of Ponderosa Avenue, the commercial component of this development. This component is not inside the gated residential area, but just outside of the guardhouse.

Ponderosa Avenue is surrounded by matured communities such as Johor Jaya, Taman Redang, Taman Desa Harmoni as well as Taman Saujana with a combined population of over 300,000.  So there’s that business potential there if you’re thinking of purchasing a shoplot.

Adhering to Stringent CINQUAS Standards

Ponderosa Woods homes are designed and built based on stringent CONQUAS standards.

CONQUAS stands for the Building and Construction Authority Construction Quality System. The scope of CONQUAS covers three areas: Structural Works, Architectural Works and Mechanical and Electrical Works.

In harnessing the core philosophy for high quality, comfort and safety, meticulous attention to every detail in terms of workmanship is paid to the building of every Ponderosa Woods home ─ this being iconized by fine fittings and exquisite finishing.

Lots of space, natural light and practically in ease of movement epitomize the overall concept. Homes feature little but very big extras like “double wall” insulation to cool its interiors as well as to block out extraneous noise for restful respite; very high ceilings, hi-tech security technology as well as Solar Rainwater Harvesting System among others.

The 3 Unit Types

There are 3 unit types in all ─ Type C, Type D and Type E.

All are 50’ by 100’, three-storey Twin Villas or Semi-Ds with the exception of Type E which has four-storeys actually as it comes with a Lower Ground Floor with porch and long drive space where you can park as many as 10 cars if you really want to fit them all. Type E also comes with a private lift of sturdy European make inside the house to save you from walking up. This is especially useful for the older folk.

Location

Location Opening pic

Ponderosa Woods is located in Taman Ponderosa, one of the newer integrated townships in Johor Bahru, adjacent to Ponderosa Golf and Country Club. For residents, this means without ever having to step out of the enclave, much of the sporting and recreational activities of the club are already, literally  ̶  a given ─ as purchase of Ponderosa Woods homes entitles buyers to 3 years free golf membership.  (More about that later)

Taman Ponderosa

Taman Ponderosa itself is a vibrant and classy upmarket neighbourhood strategically connected to all essential amenities, within the Southern Malaysia City of Johor Bahru.  Taman Ponderosa falls under the burgeoning Iskandar Region which provides accessibility via multi-pronged highways to vital destinations.

In Taman Ponderosa. The Sales Gallery is located here

In Taman Ponderosa. The Sales Gallery is located here

Taman Ponderosa was developed by Berinda Properties in a follow up to the hugely successful Taman Molek. Taman Ponderosa itself is a vibrant commercial and residential neighbourhood with beautiful lakeside apartments, two-storey semi-detached houses featuring some of the most innovative features such as concealed drainage and electrical cables, green lungs from gardens, parks and golf courses and so on and so forth.

Taman Molek

Taman Ponderosa is situated next to the slightly more matured commercial and lifestyle hub at Taman Molek, a multi-award winning township in Johor Bahru developed also by Berinda Properties under the Holding Company, the Kuok Group although the township started off under the Pelangi Berhad Group in the 1990s. It is now a mini commercial hub with several major banks such as Standard Chartered, HSBC, Al-Rajhi Bank, Kuwait Finance House, Royal Bank of Scotland, OCBC, UOB, RHB Bank, EON, Maybank, Hwang-DBS Investments.

Apart from banks, there are also plenty of petrol stations, shops big and small, including shopping malls like KSL and there are quite a number of national primary and secondary schools in the vicinity too.

Ponderosa 020 Taman Molek3 maybank

Just two of the many banks in nearby Taman Molek — a local bank here

HSBC

And an international bank here — HSBC

Taman Molek is surrounded by several other tamans and is adjacent to two major golf courses  ̶  the above-mentioned Ponderosa Golf and Country Resort and the Daiman 18 Golf and Country Resort.

As can be seen, this part of Johor Bahru, as implied by its very “Texan” sounding name, is Golf Country.

As a commercial and residential township too, there is much to be said about Taman Molek. It is where folk of Taman Ponderosa  ̶  Ponderosa Woods included ─ will get synergistic interaction to every imaginable amenity all around.

All three communities are close knit, in terms of geographical and social association. The area is also close to the Tebrau-Plentong corridor which is seeing tremendous growth such as waterfront and marina type projects along with hotels and more commercial areas set to come in future.

For those who yearn for more than a roof over your head, for more than just a landed home, for more than just nearness to amenities  ̶. Ponderosa Woods may be your answer.

Here, for a change, you have a landed property with full-fledged facilities, not just the normal facilities but privileged, highend facilities such as membership to the golf course you live next to. Not only that, you get the advantage of being served by that golf club too, such as housekeeping and concierge services. And the house you live in? It’s exquisite.

How often does one get the opportunity to live almost inside a golf course, call it your personal playground and have that extraordinary space of 50’ by 100’ with extra lawn land to boot which you can own forever and ever? And for the prestige it offers? Ponderosa Woods is as good a deal as any.
