Claude Monet, a French impressionist painter, is famous for his works featuring water lilies. Monet’s water lilies at Giverny, France, served as inspiration for these works. The gardens still stand, and they include a landscape rich in floral and aquatic features.
The Giverny Residences condo lies in the heart of exclusive District 10, and takes much of its design cues from the surrounding garden. The Robin Drive freehold condo is a unique mix of residences in a highly sought-after neighborhood.
The six luxurious apartments, spread throughout the building’s top five floors, range in size from three to four bedrooms. Each floor has just one apartment, providing plenty of room and solitude, except for level 2, which has two.
The spacious apartments range in size from 1,873 to 2,756 square feet. The developer claims that the project’s bigger apartments were selected on purpose in order to attract high-end customers who desire the ease and convenience of condo living but the wider, more open area of a landed property.
The residences were conceived by the design company A D Lab with a bungalow living idea, providing all the benefits of a landed property together with the services and amenities of a premium high-rise building.
Project architect for The Giverny Residences and co-founder of A D Lab Warren Liu boasts that each story has a garden patio and a pool. Thus, residents may utilize the amenities without ever having to leave their houses, “Stepping out of your apartment will be like walking into your private garden and pool, similar to the experience of living in a house.”
One unique aspect of The Giverny Residences is that none of the houses are alike: The arrangement of each apartment is one-of-a-kind. Because of this, the layout of each house has been perfected, and the end result is a luxurious mansion that makes good use of its space.
Each apartment’s main bedroom has its own bathroom and a walk-in closet. There is also a private elevator lobby, an outside terrace, a utility room, and a service yard. Both wet and dry kitchens are included in the four-bedroom homes.
Every detail of the fixtures and fittings was carefully considered so as to project an aura of discreet opulence. Each apartment will be furnished with high-end Miele appliances, Caesarstone quartz worktops, Poliform closets and cabinets, Gessi bathroom accessories and fittings, and Laufen sanitary ware, in addition to marble floors.
The garden terraces are an outstanding element of the outdoor spaces of The Giverny Residences. The double-height ceilings of these landscape decks provide the impression of a spacious garden. Each floor’s outside space has a different layout, much like the apartments within.
The garden setting for The Giverny Residences was setup with the help of the design director of Henning Larsen, Jelle Hendrik Therry. The landscape design team behind high-end projects including CanningHill Piers, One Pearl Bank, and MeyerHouse also aimed to bring the outside inside by creating a tranquil setting for The Giverny Residences.
The landscape decks of the complex will be artfully braided with a wide variety of plants and flowers. The decks will be made out of wood for a rustic but inviting look and feel. The outside space is tranquil and peaceful, especially in contrast to the busy street and textured concrete walls of the front.
As an added bonus, the grounds at The Giverny Residences help keep the building at a comfortable temperature all year round. The biophilic and environmentally conscious design of The Giverny Residences earned the building the highest possible BCA Green Mark Platinum accreditation.
Residents of the Giverny Residences may relax in a tranquil garden thanks to the building’s comprehensive biophilic features.
The inhabitants of The Giverny Residences enjoy a magnificent and peaceful lifestyle, as well as convenient access to a number of local services. Within a mile of the complex, students may walk to three excellent schools: St. Joseph’s Institution on Malcolm Road, Singapore Chinese Girls’ School on Dunearn Road, and Anglo-Chinese School on Barker Road.
The condo has excellent transport links as well. It’s just one stop from the Botanic Gardens MRT Station and three stops from the Orchard MRT Station, and it’s only a short walk to the Stevens MRT Interchange Station. The proximity of the Pan Island Expressway and the Central Expressway makes getting anywhere on the island a snap by car.
The Singapore Botanic Gardens on Cluny Road are only a five-minute drive away; meanwhile, the Bukit Timah Area is home to numerous shopping centers and hawker centers, including the Serene Centre on Jalan Serene, Adam Food Centre, and Balmoral Plaza.
The price range for a three-bedroom at The Giverny Residences is $5.5 million to $9.5 million. Buyers may get a better feel for the apartments by visiting the development’s sales gallery, where they can peruse renderings and take a 3D tour of the interiors designed by Peter Tay of Peter Tay Studio.
