Singapore’s District 8 cultivates the ideal cosmopolitan lifestyle with another new property launch in the area. Ritz at Farrer is an apartment building along Race Course Road, a most tasteful concoction of modern architecture, activity, and accessibility. This residential complex is a creation of ONE42 Pte Ltd, and will be ready by 2016.
The single mid-rise structure is an expression of sophistication, with the avant-garde architectural design by Ronny Chin Architects Pte Ltd. The entire development accommodates only 18 amply-spaced residential units, so you don’t have to worry about feeling crowded. Among the collection of apartments are one-bedroom units, two-bedroom units, two bedrooms plus study, three-bedroom units, and a three-bedroom plus study. The ground level also has an allotment for 2 commercial units.
Ritz-Farrer hopes to elevate the standard of everyday living for the modern urbanite. You can enjoy a sense of privilege with the perfectly finished designer interiors – kitchens and bathrooms are no exception. The kitchen embodies style and sense, without sacrificing function. It’s equipped with top-of-the line appliances by the leading kitchen system in Japan, Song-Cho, known for its modular elements that maximize space. The kitchen is also polished with the finest-quality appliances by the trusted European brand, De Dietrich. Bathrooms are likewise finished with superior branded materials: sanitary ware by Duravit, and fittings by Hansgrohe.
You can also enjoy perks and privileges any day – or every day, if you wish – through the exciting features offered by Ritz-Farrer. Residents are free to come up to the roof terrace, which is a great place for some quality time with loved ones, or just some much-needed me-time.
