If you are looking for a compact ground floor home the neighbourhood, this Pre-War Designed** apartment within the Tiong Bahru could the the one you had been waiting for.
Compared to similar ground floors, this apartment is a lot windier and brighter since it isn’t sandwiched in between blocks.
You can walk out to the Seng Poh Garden, located in front of this apartment.
If you feel like growing your own food, you could out your green fingers to use at the back of this home. I’ve seen someone, 2 blocks away, harvesting his papaya and bananas every now and then. Must to the envy of other residents here.
This place is an opportunity for you to recreate your own space (in other words, you need to renovate lah).
I have the keys and I can facilitate a physical viewing, if you you think the photos or virtual tour ain’t good enough.
**There are 4 blocks within the Post War HDB side which has pitched roofs. These 4 blocks were commissioned and approved just before WWII.
All construction works were halted during the Japanese Occupation (very much like the circuit breaker we experienced in 2020).
It was only after WWII that the contractors were able to complete their project and handed over the flats to the Singapore Improvement Trust (SIT).
There are only 8 of such 2RM ground floor apartment in the whole of Tiong Bahru.
This is truly a GEM that you may not want to miss!
