Bishan NeighbourhoodDo you remember the veins pattern on your sibling’s eyeballs because you have lived in a cramped space? Every morning do wait for a long time in order to get into the bathroom? Do you have to wait for 20 minutes for your turn to put on your makeup?

Are you frustrated with living in a cramped space? In that case, you need a bigger living space than a regular HDB apartment. If you are living in a home that is so much cramped, you need executive maisonette. Here are few suggestions.


Executive maisonettes, what are they?

Executive maisonettes, which sounds more like high-end pastry that is sold in executive airline lounges exclusively (remember crepinette?), are a type of HDB flats with two different floors, the ground floor, and the upper floor.  In Executive maisonettes, kitchen, living room, and dining room are on the ground floor, where as the bedrooms are on the upper floor. The average size of executive maisonette is around 1,570 sq ft. This kind of home size will probably be enough for a large family by the year 2037.

Since executive maisonettes are not being built currently, they are in high demand. In 1995, Executive maisonettes were replaced by the Executive Condominium (EC) scheme. Because of their scarcity, executive maisonettes have reached the resale value of around $1 million.

There are people in Singapore who still prefer executive maisonettes over ECs. For these people, it is more important not to bump into a family member for relieving themselves in the morning or doing daily chores than having a gym or a pool in the house. In an executive maisonette, there is a staircase that separates communal living spaces with bedrooms, which is considered a good feature.

If you’re looking to purchase an executive maisonette, we have found a few that you might give a consideration.
