Scale model of The Glades

Scale model of The Glades

The Glades – a name that brings to mind a place where tranquil, grassy, shallow water exist. Next, imagine a series of landed properties built around this very winding path of waterway, along with even shallower and smaller series of water features throughout an entire 56-acre development.

This is the very concept that is reflected at The Glades in Putra Heights. In addition to being gated and guarded by the imposing guardhouse with several guards present, the entire land that encompasses The Glades development is also surrounded by a 6-feet high electric-powered fence.

On top of that, the well-paved roadways within the confines of this development are not ordinary tar road. The entire development is also dotted with courtyards, gardens, conservatories and waterways.

Clubhouse facilities

From the community clubhouse to The Glades Plaza (housing a select retail and food & beverage outlets under one roof), flowing water features, spacious balconies and terraces are also commonplace. Additionally, for each and every home that dot this land, there are altogether four types of landed properties and a yet-to-be-unveiled 2-block condominium.

The Encore Cluster Villas - Site Plan

The Encore comprises of a total of 28 cluster semi-detached homes lined along Jalan Putra Perdana 5, 7, and 8.

The first design is a Type A, 2½ storey semi-detached home offering a gross built-up area of 6,276 sq ft, and a land area of 3,391 sq ft. As you enter into the villa, a half turn staircase leads all the way up to the highest floor, where a total of three terraces, a dip pool, bedrooms, and an outdoor bath and shower await.

A distinguishing feature of this home is an unusually huge front door. Located on the ground floor are the wet and dry kitchens, living and dining rooms and the foyer. There is also room to powder your nose (next to an open-air pavilion), a showcase water feature, and a maid’s room.

The foyer

The master bedroom, which comes with en suite bathroom and bathtub, takes up half of the space on the first floor. Also located on this floor is an outdoor side terrace or balcony and storage space.

Another bedroom and connecting bathroom is separated by a family hall or seating area. The home’s largest open terrace is perched right above the car porch. The highest floor accommodates three rooms and three bathrooms, as well as a back terrace or balcony.

The Living Room

The second design, a Type B, double storey semi-detached home, comes with a gross built-up area of 4,930 sq ft, and a land area of 3,391 sq ft. The flow of the ground floor mimics the shape and form of an “n”. As you walk through an unusually huge front door, you’ll have to immediately turn left.

As you proceed, a secondary living room is on your left, followed by a half turn staircase. At the foot of the stairs is a reflective pool. The living room is located at the back of the house. The dining room, located adjacent to the living room, looks out to a back garden terrace with water feature.

Water Features are a common sight inside and outside the house

Home and Security Systems

Each home is connected via fibre-to-the-home system, which allows voice and video calls within The Glades territory (including a 2-way communication to the main guardhouse and facility reservation). Each home is also installed with a home automation system to control security, air-conditioners, and lights.

In addition to a pre-installed alarm security system in every home, there is also the security system to guard the development itself – a standard 24-hour security surveillance operation which includes guard patrolling, CCTV surveillance, parameter fencing, and visitors’ screening at the main guardhouse.

Sustainable Features of The Glades:

  • Retractable sunscreen allows flexible natural ventilation and sunlight
  • Double volume spaces for cooler interiors
  • Large windows reduce dependency on artificial lighting and cooling systems
  • LED streetlights and compound lights
  • Automated waste management system
  • Centralized water filtration and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) systems
  • Rainwater harvesting system

Additionally, the waterways at The Glades flow via a bio-filtration system, complete with a select species of live aquatic plants and fish.

Summary

With the public light transit railway stations in close proximity, The Glades is one of those transit-oriented developments that already sets itself apart with a gated and guarded concept, a sustainable development concept, feng shui-inspired elements and connectivity to business and commercial hubs in Putrajaya, Cyberjaya, and Kuala Lumpur, as well as mature and highly-populated townships such as Subang Jaya and Shah Alam.

Yet, amidst the hustle and bustle of neighbouring townships outside of Putra Heights, this emerging neighbourhood is slowly attracting a growing population looking for more exclusivity and tranquility.
