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.
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 Mews constitutes a total of 26 townhouses lined along Jalan Putra Perdana 3A within The Glades, a 56-acre gated and guarded development that is located across from Kingsley International School and the Kingsley Hill development, as well as Bukit Cermin. Apart from the townhouses, there are three other types of landed properties featured in The Glades. They are the 3 and 3 ½ storey super linked homes; the 2 and 2 ½ storey cluster villas; and the 3-storey bungalows. Soon to join in the landed properties include a 2-block condominium called North Brooke and South Brooke.
Available in single storey and 2 ½ storey, these townhouses come with a unit area of 3,315 square feet for Type A, 3,208 square feet for Type A1, and 3,498 square feet for Type B respectively. As noted in the floor plan brochure, “the indicated unit areas include the main parcel and accessory parcel(s) such as planter box, garden and /or car park(s), where applicable”.
THE TYPE B SHOW UNIT (3,498 SQ. FT.)
The Type B is a single storey townhouse with a unit area of 3,498 square feet. As you walk through the front door the dry kitchen is located on the right. The dry kitchen looks out to the dining and living areas. To the back of the dry kitchen is the wet kitchen, an unusually spacious yard, and the maid’s quarters – bedroom and washroom.
One of the 3 rooms in this townhouse is located next to the front terrace. The second bedroom is sandwiched between a bedroom and bathroom. The master bedroom is located at the back corner of the home, which also come with much larger bathroom (the only one with a bath tub to boot).
A single-storey townhouse is located on the ground floor, where the main entrance to the home is down a short flight of stairs. On the other hand, to enter in to a 2 ½ storey townhouse, you are also using the same stairs. You just have to walk up the stairs to the first floor. Each townhouse at the Mews come with 2 covered complimentary parking located on the street level.
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 the main guard house and facility reservation). Each home is also installed with a home automation system to control its 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 co-exist at the same time, including guard patrolling, CCTV surveillance, parameter fencing, and visitors’ screening at the main guardhouse.
