A freehold two-storey bungalow located at La Salle Street, off Frankel Avenue, has been launched for sale by tender with an indicative price of $28 million. The property has a land area of about 11,050 sq ft, which means the indicative price works out to $2,534 psf.

The property sits on an elevated regular-shaped plot with a wide frontage of approximately 21m. It is located in Frankel Estate, an established landed housing enclave in District 15 comprising terrace, semi-detached and detached houses. Based on caveats lodged, the existing owner had purchased the property in May 2007 for $7.72 million, or $699 psf.

It was redeveloped and designed by Khairudin Saharom, director of Kite Studio Architecture who is on URA’s “20 under 45” list of architects who have contributed to the shaping of Singapore’s cityscape. Saharom had envisioned the house as “the ultimate family abode”, and designed a home that celebrates tropical living with airy, open spaces that enjoy natural light.

Completed in 2015, the two-storey bungalow has a built-up area of 19,000 sq ft and comes with basement and attic. There are six en suite bedrooms, a home cinema, an entertainment room, mahjong room, in addition to multiple family and living areas, dining and recreational spaces as well as helpers’ quarters. It has a car porch that can fit eight cars.

Designed for multi-generational family

The private quarters are on the upper levels, with the master suite occupying the entire attic, and the other five bedrooms on the second level are designed as standalone apartments. The basement and first level have been designated the entertainment areas, with the living and dining area, private cinema and mahjong room located on these floors. Hence, the layout of the home ensures privacy of family members, but also provides ample communal spaces for them to gather.

Landscaping features, including courtyards and ponds, have been woven into the home, to ensure that the rooms enjoy cross-ventilation and natural light throughout the day. The greenery and waterscapes also play a dual function in keeping the house well-ventilated and cool at all times.
