    Default Eastwood, it is.

    After much deliberation and looking around (from Geylang, to Hougang, to Simei and Flora Rd), I have finally signed the papers for a unit in Eastwood Green for own stay - a home for my young family. Would have prefered living on higher floors but the missus prefer the Eastwod location.

    Thanks to fellow forumers for the advice and tips.

    Next up, ERL at Eastwood perhaps?

    Eastwood is a tranquil and quaint location. Freehold? If so then great. As a few of the boutique developments there are 99LH.

    Unfortunately, the 10 year old Eastwood Green is a 99LH development.

    Freehold in D16 is beyond my budget. Country Park (a FH development just across the road) is hitting $950psf. Likewise, FH boutique apartments further down Upper East Coast Road ([email protected] Coast, Calypso, Venezio, Idyllic East) are also around the same $950psf price bracket.

    It would be Eastwood Regency. Visited the showflat 2 weeks ago. A 1170 sqft 2rm Penthouse unit is asking for $1.2mil (discounted rate).

    I came by the reverse way, Katong and slowly eastward.

    I almost settled for Palmwoods at Simpang Bedok. But was just too noisy at night.

    Yes i did. Although the facing was better (Upper Changi Rd instead of Bedok Rd), the entire Simpang Bedok area in the night hours is really not very suitable for peace and quiet living.

    I went three times to Simpang Bedok, twice on weekends and once on a weekday. All three times past midnight. It's great to grab a late night bite (prata, satay, etc), but you will need to live with the biker groups and teens hanging out at the karaoke joint and LAN Gaming store. There's even a pub at the corner of the shopping complex.

    I reckon Aspial Group (who purchased Changi Complex through enbloc) and FEO (who owns Bedok Shopping Complex) must have some plans to transform Simpang Bedok in the next 10 years. But i don't think it will improve from the current night scene.

    Residents of Eastwood Terrace harassed by loan sharks
    By Evelyn Choo | Posted: 26 June 2010 2240 hrs




    SINGAPORE: A private estate has become the latest target of loan sharks. Eight units at Eastwood Terrace in Bedok were vandalised in what's believed to be the first reported case of loan shark harassment at a private estate.

    42-year-old American, Wesley Heiser, was eager to move in to his new place at Eastwood Terrace until vandals crept into the district and left a mess.

    The resident at Eastwood Terrace said: "My wife and I decided to make Singapore our permanent home and so we made our first home purchase. The purchase was completed two days ago. Within the past two days, the house has been painted twice and we didn't know that the seller had owed money to illegal moneylenders."

    Bags of red paint were splashed at neighbouring houses and cars.

    The vandals left notes all over the road which read "Because of her, this happened".

    Neighbours said this isn't the first time the unit has been vandalised.

    Jasmine Siew, immediate neighbour of Mr Heiser, said: "Two or three days back, while we were driving out, we saw this bag of paint at our new neighbour's house. So we were quite puzzled."

    Residents are taking no risks. One unit even installed security cameras.

    James Yap, resident, Eastwood Terrace, said: "If nobody were to create a deterrent for them, then definitely they'll get bolder. Because if they see you have touched up your place and made good again, then they'll come again.

    “So for us, there's only so much we can do to protect ourselves. Short of hiring a security guard in front of our house, we are but sitting ducks and waiting for them to abuse us."

    Neighbours described the previous owners to be cold and inconsiderate.

    Some had made complaints to the Police about their noisy mahjong activities in the night.

    Residents said they often saw a middle-aged woman, her husband, and two men in their twenties in the house.

    They also had three cars which residents said were often indiscriminately parked."
    Ms Siew added: "I think it's very unfair to all of us especially to the new neighbour because they just bought the house without knowing anything about the old neighbour. And for us, we are not very close to the old neighbour so we couldn't contact her at all."

    Police have been notified of the incident and are investigating the matter. - CNA/vm

    the previous owner at the eastwood terrace must have loaned quite a huge sum of money.

    LOL, i visit a friend regularly at Eastwood. Maybe i am getting on age and a bit deaf but WHAT PLANE NOISE?

    That place is serene and quiet. Near to good food, east coast and a good jogging track at the park. Too bad though, he just sold his house.
