Whether you’re looking to buy a new home or not, there’s one thing that most of us undoubtedly enjoy- visiting show units.
From the mock living rooms at IKEA or checking out the show unit of the newest development nearby, there’s always a sense of enjoyment in walking through these show units and visualising how daily life in those spaces could be like.
But with great technology comes greater convenience, you can now ‘walkthrough’ these stunning show homes without having to actually leave your home!
So if you’re a homebuyer who’s tired of braving the heat and traffic, or meeting clingy sales representatives, then here are 6 stunning homes that you can ‘visit’ anywhere you are. (Even if you’re not in the market for a home, it doesn’t hurt to check out these beautiful homes.)
1. Residensi Ledang @ East Ledang
Live in this home set within tranquil landscaped gardens and rooftop gardens right from your home. Walk through the Duplex C which costs RM1.33 million at a spacious 2,475 sq ft.
Walking through the entrance, you will discover an enticing glimpse of the open kitchen and dining area leading to the living area.
What makes East Ledang unique is its offering of several variants of duplex units, which enables homeowners the space of a landed home, all while having the convenience of a condominium residence.
As you’ll see when checking out the Duplex Type C for yourself here, the spacious dining and living room look like they belong in a semi-detached home! You can almost imagine yourself serving your guests from this bar.
It’s also easy to forget that you’re looking at a condominium home, especially with the bedrooms located on the lower floor for added peace and quiet. (Just click on ‘Virtual Tour’ to begin, and don’t forget to head downstairs to check out the surprisingly large master bedroom!)
Luxury does come at a price- specifically starting at RM1.1 million for these low-rise condominium homes that range between 2,475 sf to 2,734 sf. Luxury does come at a price- specifically starting at RM1.1 million for these low-rise condominium homes that range between 2,475 sf to 2,734 sf.
2. Sakura Residence
If smart luxury is what you’re looking for, then Sakura Residence is definitely a home you have to see. Just take a walk through the Type A semi-detached show unit (virtually that is) here and you’ll see ‘blue orbs’ around the house. These orbs provide snippets of information about the home’s innovative features.
The use of dry walls is especially interesting, given that most Malaysian homes are all built with brick and cement! The homes are built with precision, promising better quality, enforced strength, and even better heat and sound insulation.
On top of the cutting-edge technology used to build the homes, smart design and thoughtful elements can also be found throughout! Like the study right by the entrance of the show unit, which also doubles as a guest room thanks to the clever inclusion of a multi-functional desk that transforms into a bed!
Have you ever seen a laundry chute in a home? (And we don’t mean on American TV shows and movies like ‘Home Alone’.) If not, then take a walk to the back of the home on the ground floor and you’ll see that the maid’s room is not just the typical four walls with a single bed inside!
Designed for family-living, the Sakura Residence homes are spacious, with built-ups of 3,190 sf and 3,274 sf and layouts of 4+1 bedrooms. Given the space and smart features of the homes, it’s no surprise that they come at hefty price tags beginning from RM2.47 million!
3. Broadleaf Residence
If you Klang Valley folks thought that dreamy homes only existed in JB, don’t fret, because Broadleaf Residence is located just a quick drive from KL and PJ, in Shah Alam!
Though it probably takes most of us in the Klang Valley about 30 minutes to get to, you can see the beautiful show unit of the Broadleaf Residence right after you finish this read!
What should you do the moment you enter the Virtual Tour of the Broadleaf show unit? Look up! How often do you see a home with an entrance this big, and ceilings these high?
That’s not all, take a few steps further into the living room, and what should you do? Again, look up! This time, be in awe of the double volume ceiling that gives the space an unbelievable grandeur, all while remaining homely.
The Broadleaf Residence homes come in built-ups of 4,654 sf for the semi-d type, and 4,942 sf for the bungalow, with layouts that are well-thought and designed for families of all sizes, with ample family spaces on top of bedrooms.
The gated and guarded development also has a private clubhouse, where homeowners will have facilities like a swimming pool and gym and more.
What tops the list of must-haves for most of the ladies out there? The master of the Broadleaf Residence is sure to wow with its spaciousness and huge wardrobe! So don’t forget to check it out when you go for your tour!
Doesn’t Broadleaf Residence sound like everybody’s dream home? For those of you who can afford its starting price of a little over RM1.94 million, then dreams could be your everyday reality!
The 6+1 bedroom semi-d variant is sized at 4,654 sf, while the bungalow is just slightly under 5,000 sf, not an issue for families of any size.
4. Bayou Creek @ Leisure Farm
Situated conveniently close to the Lion City, it’s no wonder why Johor is home to a number of impressive developments. Bayou Creek @ Leisure Farm is yet another stunning residence located in Iskandar Malaysia.
The neighbourhood comprises 17 bungalow homes and 40 units of the semi-detached variant, which luckily for us, each have show units that we can look at wherever we are!
One would typically expect wide open spaces the moment you step into a bungalow, but those of the Bayou Creek bungalows render a much more cosier feel with its well-segmented spaces.
The first thing that grabs your attention upon entering is the inner courtyard, but don’t walk right pass it yet, look out for the snug seating right beside it!
Continuing on, you’ll arrive at the dining room and open dry kitchen, right beside the property’s very own lap pool!
But wait, where’s the living room? You’ll find it tucked away in the corner of the ground floor, much like the sitting rooms of English homes which allow for better privacy and quiet conversation.
On the upper floor, you’ll find that the master room is a good size, with its very own balcony!
The semi-detached units are no less luxurious. Be greeted by the sight of a beautifully lit living room, where large windows and tall ceilings give the home an even grander ambience.Explore the ground floor and you’ll also find a calm nook that makes for the perfect home office, completely tucked away from the outside world.
The Bayou Creek residences are some serious ‘dream home’ goals that will set you back RM2.52 million!
But to some, its prices may seem worth given that the homes are part of an international community known as Leisure Farm, where residents can certainly feel like they’re living in another country, with 2 canal waterways running through the development reminiscent of quaint Dutch villages, a golf course, and even equestrian facilities!
5. The Estate South Bangsar
Who says that only large landed homes can impress, The Estate South Bangsar is a multi-award winning high-rise development in KL city that offers no less appealing aesthetics, with accolades like Best Landscape Architectural Design, and Best High End Condo Development (Kuala Lumpur) under its name.
Urbanity and craftsmanship is skilfully brought together, with energy-efficiency and made to last materials like marble flooring at the core of its build.
The show unit of The Estate is a great way to experience what the boutique development is all about, where you can walk through the functionally laid out Type C and admire the tasteful colonial-inspired decor here!
The living, dining, and dry kitchen make up the out half of the home, where luxury is not spared, with marble counter tops and wood panelling extending from the walls to the ceilings, as well as impressive lighting choices. There is even a wet kitchen, maid’s room, and laundry area for functional living.
The unassuming entryway leads to the next half of the home, where the 3 bedrooms and even a home office are located for increased privacy, especially when entertaining guests.
Though the space here in the show unit is turned into a home office, it is actually flexible enough to be turned into anything else buyers may need, such as a home cinema or even into another bedroom.
Don’t forget to check out the bedrooms, especially the master which features a sneaky see through glass panel between the bedroom and the bathroom. See if you can spot it! If you’re looking for a family home, the child’s bedroom is also a great inspiration, with fun yet classy furniture and decor.
6. Zinnia Residences @ Cameron Highlands
Though the majority of us may not exactly have a need (or the extra cash) for a home in the cooling mountains of Cameron, it surely isn’t difficult to see that these homes would be the perfect getaway with family and friends!
So for those who’ve got plans to join the Airbnb community of hosts, then Zinnia Residences should top the list, given that one has enough laying around for the homes that start from RM1.96 million! Nonetheless, it doesn’t mean that we can’t all admire the 2.5-storey show unit here.
Stepping into the Zinnia show unit, it becomes apparent that the homes are made for family living, with spacious living and dining rooms. The property is also equipped with large windows and a double volume ceiling at the side of the home to allow plenty of light into the homes.
The Zinnia homes also come in layouts of at least 4+1 bedrooms for the 2,800 sq ft double-storey units, while the 2.5-storey offers 6+1 bedrooms at 3,998 sq ft. There is also a larger 2.5-storey type, which offers 7+1 bedrooms with a built-up of 5,420 sq ft.
Though not all of the rooms are accessible in the show unit, there are ample to illustrate the flexibility of the rooms.
There are only 25 units of these semi-detached resort homes, all anchored around a Central Garden within a gated and guarded community.
When they’re not helping potential home owners visualise the size and whether a property suits them, they’re here to spin our imaginative gears, and provide inspiration. These 6 stunning show units are certainly impressive, each in their own way, and we wouldn’t mind having some eye-candy to feed those ‘dream home’ daydreams!
