Everyone knows that expats have high standards and can be quite demanding and discerning. When they are looking for a place to live, expats want to have it all – the comfort of the suburbs with the conveniences of city living.
I was recently invited by a friend to take a tour of Jade Hills – a 360-acre elegant and exclusive freehold gated residential community in Kajang – and I can honestly say that this development offers residents the best of both worlds and is eminently suitable for expats.
Developed by Gamuda Land in 2008, Jade Hills is splendidly suburban with lush green grounds and perfect tranquility, but is also incredibly convenient with easy access and close proximity to urban, modern Kuala Lumpur.
As I toured Jade Hills, what struck me as its two most distinctive features are its amazing homes and its naturally elegant environment.
In terms of the houses, there are three distinctive property designs – bungalow, link bungalow, and garden terrace – that are now available for rental and sale. Spread sporadically throughout the development’s 12 low-density precincts, all of these elegant and contemporary homes are modern, spacious and stylish structures with superior finishes and facilities.
Environmentally speaking, Jade Hills was “built in harmony” with the nature, meaning that the original pristine, undulating topography of the area was maintained and all of the homes are set in a lush landscape of abounding hills, lakes and magnificent themed gardens.
As I walked on perfectly paved sidewalks down tree-lined streets, I felt a profound sense of serenity enveloping me.
Indeed, Jade Hills is a veritable oasis, offering residents an escape from the surrounding urban environment and the opportunity to live in nature’s serene, green embrace.
The luxurious homes are all built on the naturally hilly contours of the land, thus affording breathtaking and pristine views from every angle.
While respecting and preserving the natural splendor of the landscape, the developers of Jade Hills also ensured that the enclave possesses the most modern and well-appointed facilities and amenities.
The development boasts a well-manned guardhouse, 24-hour security patrolling and comprehensive CCTV surveillance, affording residents peace of mind when it comes to their safety.
In terms of facilities, all home buyers are automatically made members of the awesome Jade Hills Resort Club.
I was blown away by this facility which boasts a jaw-dropping infinity Olympic-sized swimming pool. I could easily imagine my family enjoying a free, fun, and relaxed lifestyle in this resort-like environment: my wife spending countless happy hours in the gym and dance studio, and my kids playing merrily in the games room and children’s playground.
Another attractive feature of Jade Hills is its fantastically convenient location in
Kajang, offering easy access to Kuala Lumpur and other established areas in the Klang Valley. It only took me, for example, a mere 20 minutes to reach the residential development from my office in Bangsar and my friend told me that Jade Hills is also less than 30 minutes to KL International Airport (KLIA).
Additionally, the development is advantageously situated nearby numerous international schools, universities, medical centres, golf clubs, and shopping malls.
I think that this proximity to Malaysia’s capital as well as other facilities makes Jade Hills an ideal place to either live and invest in.
The development has been attracting expats from all over the globe. My friend from Austria introduced me to Jade Hills residents from a wide array of countries including Germany, the UK, and China.
Expats will no doubt feel perfectly at home in this lush and luxurious lifestyle community.
There are many units now in move-in condition and you can schedule a viewing appointment anytime.
At Jade Hills, the dream of having all of the comforts of a sumptuous suburban lifestyle with all the conveniences of city living is a reality. I was truly amazed. You got to see it to believe it.
