New Launches :: Lentor Mansion Floor Plans

Park Place Residences . New city fringe condominium in the mixed development Paya Lebar Quarter . 10 minutes train ride to Raffles Place and Marina Bay . Launching for VIP Preview February / March 2017

If you are looking for another brand new condominium that has water views as well, you might want consider the Lentor Mansion condo. This development is launching for sale soon in February 2024, but in a completely different location from Lakefront Residences. It is situated in the upcoming Lentor Hills Estate, about six minutes walk from Lentor MRT station on the Thomson-East Coast Line.

The long frontage that the Lentor Mansion condo enjoys facing the Central Water Catchment area is what gives it its water views. Added to that the fact that this Lentor Hills condo is also one of only five sites around Hillock Park, that gives it refreshing greenery views of the park to its north.

Especially since the old NAW building was gazetted for conservation, and is being incorporated as part of the new Lentor Mansion floor plans design. It sits at the corner of Lentor Gardens and Lentor Hills Road. To its west is the long established Teachers Estate landed housing enclave.

Actually there is another empty site to its immediate south-west, between the Lentor Mansion condo site and Teachers Estate. This is also zoned for new homes, but the good news is that URA has given it only a 1.4 plot ratio. Which means that it will likely be not more than 5 storeys high.

Hence the higher floor units at the Lentor Mansion condo will get unblocked views all the way to the Thomson Nature Reserve, and even to Peirce Reservoir and its vast swathes of greenery across to MacRitchie Reservoir.

If you are interested to take a look at the Lentor Mansion floor plans brochure once it is available, or to view the Lentor Mansion showflat, do drop us a line. Let us know, and we will be more than glad to keep you posted on the details and upcoming Preview.

Guide to Buying New Singapore Property

On October 31, 2010, in Lakefront Condo, by admin
Answers to questions you may have on buying Lakefront Residences


What are the costs involved in buying new property in Singapore?

  1. Purchase price of the lakefront condo unit itself.
  2. Stamp Duty payable to IRAS (Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore). Most easily calculated using the formula: (3% x Purchase Price) minus $5,400. See note below on when Stamp Duty is payable.
  3. Legal fee payable to your Conveyancing Lawyer. Usually around $2,000 to $3,000. If you are taking a bank loan, chances are your bank may cover most or all of the legal fee if you use one of their panel of lawyers.

When is Stamp Duty payable?

Stamp Duty is payable within 2 weeks of signing the Sales & Purchase Agreement (S&P). Buyer is required to sign the S&P within 3 weeks of receiving it. The S&P is usually sent to the buyer (or his lawyer if he has given the Developer his lawyer’s particulars) between one to two weeks after booking the unit and getting the Option to Purchase.

Stamp Duty quick formula: (3% x Purchase Price) – $5,400

Stamp Duty may be reimbursable from your own CPF funds, but you will need to pay it in cash first, as it takes some time for CPF to release it back to you after your lawyer writes to them to do so.

Any other costs for Lakefront Residences? Such as admin charges or commissions or agent fees?

No. Buyers do not pay commissions on private property purchases (unlike purchases of HDB flats). Nor do buyers pay any admin or agent fees.

How are purchases of Singapore property funded?

If you are NOT currently paying off another housing loan:

  • First 5% cash (by cheque) at time of booking your lakefront condo unit.
  • Next 15% within 8 weeks (typically) of booking the unit. This 15% can be from CPF funds, or from cash.
  • The remaining 80% can be from CPF funds, bank loan, or cash. This is payable progressively, which means that you (or the bank on your behalf) pays out the money as and when construction work reaches stages as set out in the Progressive Payment Schedule. This means that if you’re taking a loan, your monthly instalments begin only when the bank disburses the amount, and the amounts payable start out small and slowly increase.

If currently paying off a housing loan:

  • First 5% cash (by cheque) at time of booking your lakefront condo unit.
  • Next 15% within 8 weeks (typically) of booking the unit. Of this 5% must be from your own cash, and the remaining 10% can be from CPF funds, or from cash.
  • When foundation works are completed, another 10% is payable to the developer. This can be from CPF funds, or from cash.
  • When reinforced concrete framework is completed, another 10% is payable to the developer. This can be from CPF funds, or from cash.
  • The remaining 60% can be from CPF funds, bank loan, or cash. This is payable progressively, which means that you (or the bank on your behalf) pays out the money as and when construction work reaches certain stages. So if you’re taking a loan, your monthly instalments payable start out small and slowly increases.

The Reserve Residences Launch

The Reserve Residences is a new condominium being launched for sale by the Far East Group in the Upper Bukit Timah area of Singapore. It is part of an integrated development that includes a retail component, as well as transport hub, unlike the Lakefront Residences which is a pure residential project.

This is a landmark project, as it will occupy the most notable site in the Beauty World precinct. In fact the Reserve Residences will have its own direct underground link to the concourse level of Beauty World MRT station on the Downtown line.

The units here will target both home occupiers who appreciate the sheer convenience of the amenities around. As well as investors who can depend on a tenant pool who want to views as well as easy walk-across access to the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve and Park across Jalan Anak Bukit. As compared to Lakefront Residences that draws upon tenants who work in the Jurong Gateway precinct.

The Reserve Residences launch is expected to take place in mid 2022. Both the floor plans and pricing have yet to be finalised. However Far East Organisation have started construction of the Reserve Residences showflat, and in fact, much of the concept design was already formulated at the tender for this land parcel.
