Gamuda Land wows visitors with Jade Hills

GAMUDA Land held a “sneak preview” of its latest high-end residential development, Jade Hills in Kajang, during the recent Chinese New Year festive period.

It was a pleasant surprise for those who attended the “Spring Festival” event on Feb 16. The renowned property developer had quietly but efficiently built four splendid show bungalows, an Oriental-style clubhouse, and big entrance statement with the usual water features.

It also put up a large air-conditioned tent to welcome prospective buyers and other visitors.

It has taken the company several months to show off its Jade Hills. Like its other signature developments (Kota Kemuning, Bandar Botanic, Ambang Botanic and Valencia), Gamuda Land took great pains to create a premier gated and guarded community with a resort-style clubhouse.

Hey, presto! Within a few months it has created a few small lakes, built a nice road and planted some trees to spruce up the rather dreary entrance to the development.

This project is tucked inside a small road whose entrance is right in front of the Silk Highway interchange to Kajang town. It is very accessible to Kuala Lumpur. In fact, it took me a mere 30 minutes to reach Jade Hills from USJ via Puchong.

Golf buggies ferried visitors from the car park at the clubhouse to the big tent where food and handicraft stalls delight families with calligraphy writing, kite making, and traditional Chinese tea-pouring and kuzheng performances. Visitors have to climb a flight of stone steps to a courtyard to view two of the four show houses. A lion and drum beating performance was held here.

The 258-acre freehold project will have 793 units to be built in 12 phases over eight to 10 years. The density is a low three units per acre.

The “prestigious lifestyle” development concept should appeal to people with deep pockets who yearn to live in this part of Kajang. The neighbour is the well-known high-end development Country Heights, where many corporate figures and politicians live.

With the Gamuda name, purchasers should be confident enough that the developer Jade Homes Sdn Bhd (a subsidiary of Gamuda Bhd) will be able to deliver a product of top quality.

Jade Homes will have 12 theme gardens with walkways and recreational facilities at your doorstep. There will be three lakes: Misty Lake, Willow Sweeps and Water Spring – quite romantic-sounding names.

Two of the themed precincts, White Bark and Evergreen, are currently open for purchase.

The White Bark Precinct will have 50 bungalows with six distinct designs overlooking a lake, garden and the clubhouse. One of the designs, the 60ft x 125sq ft Pearl Jade (seven units of premium bungalow), has land size of 8,037 to 8,469 sq ft and 5,249 sq ft built-up area. There will be 5+1 bedrooms. The selling price is RM2.1mil to RM2.3mil.

The 55ft x 100ft White Jade (22 deluxe bungalows) has 6,485 to 11,157 sq ft land and 4,562 and 4,599 sq ft built-up areas. It will also have 5+1 bedrooms. The selling price is RM1.6mil to RM2mil.

The 50ft x 100ft Emerald Jade (21 bungalows) has land size of 5,289 to 8,268 sq ft and built-up areas of 4,165, 4,222 and 4,368 sq ft. It has 4+1 bedrooms and is priced from RM1.5mil to RM1.8mil.

Another interesting design is the Calligraphy Maze (41 units) which is a two and three-storey Garden Terrace with 4+1 bedrooms and priced from RM680,000 to RM1mil. The land areas range from 2,080 to 6,107 sq ft and built-up areas between 2,900 and 3,700 sq ft.

The unique feature is its open front lawn (no gate in front with low perimeter fencing at the back garden). Other features are a covered car porch for three cars, large living space, wet and dry kitchens, pond features for selected designs and the houses built around a cul-de-sac.

Each property comes with a free club membership worth RM10,000. Monthly club subscription fee is RM70 per membership plus government tax. The clubhouse will boast a 50m lap pool, children's wading pool, spa pool, three tennis courts, gymnasium, multi-purpose function room, steam and sauna room, games room, children's playground and even a Chinese teahouse.

The project's general manager Choong Chee Yoong said there had been “strong interest” in Jade Hills mainly because of its good accessibility and lifestyle concept.

“It is strategically located, with six to seven golf courses and several famous international schools such as the Alice Smith International School in Seri Kembangan and the Australian International School at the Mines Resort City in the vicinity,” he added.
