The Woods - Too many units (93) on small plot of land. Front porch/yard of each house is so close to the one opposite; feels like the air circulation will be lousy. Also the back wall is like 2m away from the neighbour's back wall.
Westville and Westwood Park are really undervalued at 1.3m-1.5m (terrace) and 1.5-1.8m (corner and semi-d). Talk a walk around and you can see most units are nicely renovated and still in great condition. See how far apart the front of the houses are from each other, compared to The Woods.
Also heard from the Woods marketing agents on site that monthly maintenance is around $500. In contrast you don't have to pay maintenance for Westville or Westwood. Granted they are both more than 10 years old, but that also means the rooms are very generous in size. Huge master bedroom, etc.
In terms of location in that region, Corporation Drive is closer to MRT but in terms of finishing and quality, Westville is the best followed by Westwood Park. Have to wait and see for The Woods. I think the design is classy, but the main problem is having too many units too close to each other.
indeed the front of westville or westwood pk are not as close as The Woods. But for sure, the backyard is badly designed with little light as it is almost back to back with your neighbour. I have seen at least 7 units and westwood park seems better but too bad, these are all in range of 1.6~1.8mil. The owner could have renovated recently but sometimes, you just dont like and then u might have to spend another 100k to do it. and there is goes closer to 1.9 or 2mil...
for westville, they are closer to 1.3~1.5 but, condition can be very bad. there are some rows with drainage that run across your house in your back yard. imagine when there is a choke somewhere along the way, or rats problem....can't imagine.
then of course, there is no need for maintenance fees. But you might appreciate the 24hrs security that the woods provide, or the gym and swimming pool and also the 2 private carpk. go along the area and you will know what kind of carpk problem they are facing...
again, both got pros & cons and see if it suits your taste.
