Singapore -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/10/2013 -- The Hillford is Singapore’s first Retirement Resort, which is a self-contained living environment specially designed for the elderly. The Hillford includes units for residential stay, which are compact 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom, and 2 bedroom dual key units. There are condo-like facilities, such as a swimming pool, yoga alcove, golfing green, gardens and landscaping, and even a 24hour concierge service.
More than just a residential condominium, The Hillford has commercial shops at the ground floor, with designated shops allocated to provide goods and services for the elderly. For example, there are restaurants, laundry shop, convenience kiosk, pharmacy, clinic, childcare/nursery/playschool, and an Elder Care Centre, which provides space for community and communal activities.
The Hillford comes with a 60-year lease, which is lesser than the usual 99 year lease for residential units in Singapore. However, the upside that is the lesser lease would translate to a more prudent and affordable price for elderly residents, saving more for other retirement expenses and activities.
The location is also very ideal. Nestled in the quaint neighbourhood of Jalan Jurong Kechil, residents can expect a serene, safe, and quiet living environment. Transport is convenient, as the upcoming train station, Beauty World MRT Station, will be functional in 2015/2016. Eateries and amenities are available at the ground floor commercial shops of The Hillford, but there are also many famous eateries and hypermarkets in the vicinity.
The Hillford is expected to be completed in 2017.
