The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - STAR PROP­ERTY FAIR -

EX­PE­RI­ENCE the finest in ur­ban liv­ing at the vi­brant and dy­namic Ban­dar Pu­tra Ber­tam town­ship lo­cated in the heart of thriv­ing Kepala Batas in north Se­berang Prai ( SPU), Pe­nang.

To date, this 350- acre de­vel­op­ment by Ban­dar Kepala Batas Sdn Bhd, a com­pany jointly owned by Hunza Prop­er­ties Ber­had ( 70%) and Yayasan Bu­mipu­tra Pu­lau Pi­nang Ber­had ( 30%), has been com­pleted with over 2,700 res­i­dences and com­mer­cial shop of­fices.

Prop­er­ties in this town­ship were de­signed to pro­vide plush com­fort, pri­vacy and ex­clu­siv­ity, and yet af­ford­ably priced.

Thus, the ear­lier phases have re­ceived tremen­dous re­sponse with all homes sold out.

The lat­est ar­chi­tec­tural gem is Casa In­nova, fea­tur­ing 588 dou­ble­storey ter­race houses avail­able in five dif­fer­ent de­signs.

To be de­vel­oped in three phases, the first phase of 184 units has been com­pleted and sold while the soon- to- be- com­pleted sec­ond phase of 172 units has also been snapped up.

Now open for sale is the fi­nal phase com­pris­ing 232 units of Viva II and Nova III. The for­mer comes with a built- up of 1,998sq ft and the lat­ter 2,164sq ft. Both will be crafted on land ar­eas of 22’ x 70’.

The res­i­dences ap­peal with high ceil­ing and spa­cious lay­out for the liv­ing room, fam­ily area and mas­ter bed­rooms, open con­cept kitchens and car porch to ac­com­mo­date two ve­hi­cles.

The mas­ter bed­room is also lux­u­ri­ously decked out with at­tached bath­room, walk- in wardrobe and bal­cony to take in the sur­round­ing views while the kitchen, din­ing and liv­ing ar­eas fea­ture 2’ x2’ porce­lain tiles.

Be­sides plenty of prac­ti­cal and func­tional space to meet the de­mands of mod­ern fam­i­lies, the homes are also bor­dered by lush land­scaped green­ery to pro­vide a ver­dant sanc­tu­ary of peace and tran­quil­ity.

Sched­uled for com­ple­tion by this year- end, this fi­nal phase is al­ready 50% sold.

Visit the show houses to ex­pe­ri­ence the dif­fer­ence to­day.

Un­sur­passed in lo­ca­tion

Once a sleepy one- street town in the 1970s, Kepala Batas is now home to a host of vi­brant town­ships, ma­jor in­sti­tu­tions of higher learn­ing, key gov­ern­ment agen­cies as well as a vast range of med­i­cal, recre­ational and life­style ameni­ties.

As SPU’s new growth cen­tre, it is be­ing ac­tively de­vel­oped into a mod­ern, planned city com­plete with an ed­u­ca­tion hub and a Gov­ern­ment ad­min­is­tra­tive cen­tre.

In short, it has ev­ery­thing to of­fer in terms of ac­ces­si­bil­ity, fa­cil­i­ties and ser­vices.

The new ad­min­is­tra­tive cen­tre houses, among oth­ers, the Land and Dis­trict of­fice, Pub­lic Works De­part­ment, dis­trict po­lice head­quar­ters, Mil­le­nium Hall, MPSP Sports Com­plex and Kepala Batas ICT ( pa­per­less) Hos­pi­tal.

Bor­dered be­tween But­ter­worth and Sun­gai Pe­tani, Kepala Batas is the fastest grow­ing town in SPU, and yet the pace of life is one of tran­quil­ity and charm.

That is why more and more peo­ple have opted to set up homes here, es­pe­cially in the self­con­tained Ban­dar Pu­tra Ber­tam.

Eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble via the NorthSouth Ex­press­way, the town­ship is not only lo­cated within close prox­im­ity of the dis­trict’s ad­min­is­tra­tive cen­tre but also estab­lished ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tions such as USM Ad­vanced Med­i­cal Re­search and Den­tistry In­sti­tute, MARA Ju­nior Science Col­lege ( MRSM), Univer­siti Te­knologi MARA ( UiTM) and In­dus­trial Train­ing In­sti­tute ( ILP).

There are also 17 pri­mary and sec­ondary schools like SM Sains Kepala Batas, SK Ber­tam Per­dana, SRK Hashim Awang, SJK ( C) Pei Yu and SJK ( C) Mah Hua as well as the up­com­ing Nurs­ing Col­lege and Pe­nang In­ter­na­tional Den­tal Col­lege in the vicin­ity.

Ban­dar Pu­tra Ber­tam is also sur­rounded by recre­ational and life­style fa­cil­i­ties in­clud­ing Pe­nang Golf Re­sort, Vi­sion Park ( a man- made wet­land), a 24- hour McDon­ald’s and the new SPU En­trepreneurs and Agri­cul­ture Expo site.

Within arm’s reach are three hy­per­mar­kets of My­din, Sun­shine Ber­tam ( with four cin­ema halls) and Tesco ( un­der con­struc­tion).

When it comes to set­ting up a home, more of­ten than not, the lo­ca­tion makes all the dif­fer­ence.

Ban­dar Pu­tra Ber­tam def­i­nitely has this ad­van­tage and more to sat­isfy the needs of dis­cern­ing pur­chasers.
