Exco village is like a hill resort

Housing committee chairman takes real estate agents to exco village

One of the luxury houses visited during the tour.

The area in Shah Alam where luxury bungalows have been built by the former state government for its exco members and their families has been likened to a hillside resort.

This was how state housing committee chairman Iskandar Abdul Samad described the place during his maiden visit to the area, which has been dubbed exco village.

The RM21mil exco village in Section 7 has been left abandoned since the Pakatan Rakyat government wrested power from the Barisan Nasional in the March general election.

“This is actually a resort which offers cosy homes for holiday makers and I cannot imagine myself staying here.

“It is luxurious and I don’t think it’s proper to house the exco members in such homes,'' he said after visiting the place with a group of real estate agents.

Iskandar said the representatives from five real estate agencies had been taken on a tour of the place so that they had a clear idea of how to sell the place.

He said they were taken to three of the bungalows and saw for themselves what the area offered.

“I have given them two weeks to come back with a concrete proposal and how much rental they are willing to pay for the homes,” he said

A typical breakfast nook in each of the houses is furnished with dining furniture.

Iskandar said the area had been built with a mix of 10 bungalows, including double-storey and two-and-a-half storey bungalows with five bedrooms with attach bathrooms.

He said all the bungalows had a living room, family area, music room, dining area, breakfast room and a kitchen.

“They are fully furnished with cosy settings. The bungalows are also fully air-conditioned,” he said

A 14-seater table in the formal dining room reflects the kind of lifestyle envisaged by the exco village planners.

Besides the houses, there is also a clubhouse and a swimming pool at the hillside scheme.

Iskandar, who was seen photographing the area with his digital camera, said the settlement had been well designed with a scenic view of the surrounding area.

“I hope these features can be the selling point to attract people to occupy the houses here,'' he told StarMetro.
