    If yr kids like to swim, this is really a good place, with kids activity pool. And there are 3 Jacuzzi Pavilions for those who like some aqua massage, plus 1 main pool and a lap pool to swim.

    Personally, feel very stuffy inside Warren ground, too congested. Btw, also visited Maysprings last weekend, feel so much better with the open spaces, just like Northvale. May be I'm a bit Claustrophobic

    Ya, unfortunately the price increased a lot now due to Micasa and P1 registration (within 1km of South View/ De La Salle). If I were to buy Warren, it will definitely be due to price (when it drops), else, I would rather consider upsize within Northvale.

    Btw, I'm looking either to upsize my unit and/or buy another unit for investment purpose, so looking at both big and small units and several areas at the same time.

    Will people buy Mi Casa just because of South View and De La Salle school ? I mean, these are not top notch schools or cream of the crop , but def are the better ones in this area .. but will that be a major selling point or a just a fringe benefit ?

    Mi casa - not even built yet so can't see what the actual thing looks like , esp it is commanding such a high price .. Warren def better buy.

    I stayed in Maysprings before. The 2 blocks are quite a distance to each other. One of the setback the garden is not so friendly to kids and senior citizens. There are many staircase and the garden / pool are split into few levels.

    I am a frequent visitors to Northvale and Warren. It is true that the Warren is congested during weekend (actually same as Northvale which was very crowed during weekend). The development has a 3 big pools (lap pool (12 x 35m), main pool, kid pool and fun pool) with total of 1800+ sqm pools size, which is considered quite big compare with other developments. The tradeoff is the cut back the garden space. Northvale outside look nicer than Warren but the quality and finishing is so so... I visited Warren during weekday at night and find it is quite peaceful. This is espcially so for those blocks beside lap pool. The lighting is beautify at night.

    I'm referring to Warren, not Micasa, I think the price increase is driven by Micasa fever and P1 registration (in 2 months time).

    Usually, if one stay at a place long enough, he just don't wanna move out of the area, as such, rather move within the area and preferably near a relatively good school if the kids are due for P1. I think that's also the reason u are looking at CCK/Hillview/Bt Timah area and not other corners of S'pore.

    Side track a bit, I think I rather be the "cream" of a neighbourhood school than a "residue" of a elite school. The psychological effect is much desirable on the learning journey . So, no point fighting for a place in elite school and suffer, well, unless yr kid is a genius and remain so for all 6 years in the school.

    I agree with HCL and Zoro, swimmers will love Warren. And I like the blocks around the lap pool too, quiet and relaxing feel .

    I don't know abt others, if I were to choose a resort, I would rather find one with a view of open sea or view of grassland/paddyfield, definitely not a little congested garden with swimming pool. So, to me, Warren has little "resort" feel" , but squeezee leh!

    HCL, if u were to look around in Northvale, u will see that there are many open spaces for many activities, as such, it may not be as crowded as Warren (just compare the area of open spaces, u will know). There is definitely a wide open area between each block, be it a swimming pool, grass patch, playground, basketball court, putting green etc. Kids can also cycle around the estate and within the estate in a safe environment (not on the road).

    For Maysprings, although the garden is not elderly/kid-friendly (landscaping also sub-standard), it's still a big open space that u seldom find in any new devt. Hmm.... big open space, could it mean better chance of en-block in future......?

    The3 current land in Maysprings can build up to 3.0 plot ratio according to 2008 Master Plan. If current Maysprings plot ratio is 2.1 or below, it shall have better chance of en block in the future espcially after Down Town MRT line is up in 2005.

    Personally, for me, I would still prefer a development with baclony (of cos must be big enough to put in chairs and table for relaxation) as it would provide a little more "resort" feeling. That is why I would still prefer warren to northvale.

    Yes, agree that no point being the last in a good school.
    Rather be a big fish in a small pond.

    I am thinking of renting out my CCK point block and buying another units elsewhere to be nearer BT since that is their future pri school. I dun have much choice with the schools since I dun do volunteer work and dun believe in buying a place 1 km to school just to secure a place .
    Pri registration in Jul.

    Is that legal

    Same as me, just happen to be 1km away, so ballot for fun and got it . I rather the kids go to a nearby school than to travel miles away for a good school, too tiring !
