    Default Looking for property near to good primary school

    I have a budget of around 1M for a 3 bedder and would want my property to be within 1Km of any good primary school (boys) e.g. SJI etc..

    Property age / no facilities / not near MRT/ are not a problem as long as it is within 1km school radius. Any gurus can advice?

    There are some old properties aroung SJI junior with enbloc potential. If you can get it at a decent price and stay there for the next 5 to 10 years, who knows, you might be the next lucky one.

    Nanyang Primary: can try those around Coronation and Duchess (D10) or Shelford and Watten (D11). Shelford and Watten are next to RGPS also, for those with daughters, can walk.

    ACS Barker Rd: can try those at Goldhill Ave/Mt Rosie (D11, not Goldhill Plaza which is further away), Balmoral (D10), Chancery Lane, Newton (which is in three parts D9,10,11).

    SCGS: can try Stevens Road (D10), Whitley Rd (D11), and Trevose area (D11). Trevose area is just across the road from SCGS, don't even have to drive.

    MGS: can try that stretch with Tessarina (D10), Nexus, Gardenvista (D21).

    Henry Park: can try Mt Sinai area (D10). Many condos there can try for below $1000 psf.

    SJI Junior: can try Lincoln Rd area or Novena area. Actually SJI Junior quite near ACS Barker with only Chancery Lane and Thomson Rd separating the 2 so a good bet would be something in between.

    For more info you can look at street directory dot com to determine how close. Good luck!

    Look along Derbyshire Road, 2 mins walk to SJI junior. There is this old property (if you don't mind about 30 years), no facilities. The apartment is very spacious and squarish (no wastage of space).

    I went to see it at the peak of the market during the last enbloc cycle(price outside my budget), the price should have come down now. If you buy it for your own stay (for your kids), I hope by the time they graduate (7 years later), it is ripe for the next cycle. My theory is, there are less old enbloc potential properties in the market right now (I mean the one with really good potential, FH, not too many units and not a big site-developers can afford to buy). If you believe the wave will come back, not now but 5-10 years' time, and you can wait out, you can consider it. Good luck to your search.

    Hi!
    Me also a mother looking for new home near good primary school.

    You may wanna check the schools' P1 statistics before buying the property - for some popular primary schools like Nanyang, MGPS, staying within 1 km does not mean that you are guaranteed a place. You will still have to go through the balloting process.
