Singapore, 2 February 2018: A two level penthouse located on the 6th storey of The Berth by the Cove will be introduced at Edmund Tie & Company’s auction on 28 February 2018, Wednesday, at The Amara Hotel Singapore, 165 Tanjong Pagar Road, Level 3, Connection Room, 2.30pm. This will be the first Sentosa Cove property to be placed under the hammer this year.
The 4-bedroom unit has approximately 2,939 sq ft of floor area and will offer its owner unblocked views of the marina and the landed enclaves of Paradise Island and Coral Island. It includes a double-volume ceiling in the living area, private lift access and a private spa pool which is ensuite to the master bedroom.
he Berth by the Cove was completed in 2006 and has a total of 200 units, with a 99-year leasehold tenure with effect from 2004. The condominium, located along Sentosa’s coastline, is also one of the few developments on the island which offers its residents berths for their private yacht.
The last owner purchased the unit in 2011 at $5.64 million, or $1,919 per square foot.
2017 saw several mortgagee sale units done within Sentosa Cove, at developments such as Seascape, The Residences at W Sentosa Cove, Turquoise, and even a bungalow on Paradise Island. All these units were snapped up quickly, indicating that there are ready buyers waiting for good buys on the island.
Ms Joy Tan, Head of Auction & Sales at Edmund Tie & Company, commented:
“This is the first time in recent years that a unit under mortgagee sale is available at The Berth by the Cove. Overall, resale and rental transactions within this development and its surrounding projects, such as The Coast and The Oceanfront, has been healthy. Mortgagee sales along this stretch of Sentosa represents an excellent opportunity for investors or occupiers to acquire a property in one of Singapore’s most prestigious addresses.”
The upcoming auction by Edmund Tie & Company also offers two other big-ticket mortgagee sale properties. They are a 4-storey, stand-alone JTC building located along Joo Seng Road, and a good class bungalow (GCB) located along Belmont Road.
