You’ve probably heard the term ‘cluster house’ before. But do you actually know what is a cluster house?
Also known as strata-landed housing, cluster houses are private property that are built in groupings which are relatively close to each other.
They usually take on the form of terraced houses, semi-detached houses, or even bungalows.
If you want to live in a piece of landed property but also enjoy access to joint community facilities you can find in a condominium, a cluster house may be right for you!
In this article, we’ll explore the reasons why cluster houses have been a popular choice among new homeowners, and highlight some of our favourite cluster house developments.
What are the benefits of living in a cluster home?
Cluster developments are sometimes likened to mini-villages, offering residents tranquility and a sense of exclusivity.
When you stay in a cluster home, you won’t have to worry about getting a parking space or sharing the gym with many other strangers.
You’ll only need to share such common facilities with your neighbours, which won’t amount to that many anyway.
In such developments, security systems are in place to control access by visitors and the public, providing greater security and peace of mind for residents.
This means you no longer have to worry about security concerns such as snatch thefts or home break-ins.
3) Perfect for families with children
If you’re a young one, what’s there not to love about swimming pools, playgrounds, and wide open green spaces?
Cluster homes typically have these, so kids don’t have to venture too far if they want some outdoor playtime.
Since cluster homes are gated, you also won’t have to worry about them venturing off too far and getting lost.
What’s more, cluster homes are also usually part of a township that provides amenities like schools and parks, making them ideal for those with kids.
If you want to live a little more luxuriously in Malaysia, staying in a landed property might be the way to go.
However, if price concerns are at the top of your mind, you might be pleased to know that cluster houses are one of the more affordable types of landed housing.
This is because cluster houses are targeted at a relatively wider market segment. A cluster house will cost you about RM700,000 on average, whereas a bungalow could cost you RM4,000,000.
