SINGAPORE (Mar 19): On the market is a 398 sq ft studio apartment at the 65-unit, freehold Heritage East on East Coast Road, with an asking price of $590,000 ($1,482 psf). “The second-floor unit is a walk-up apartment in the conservation shophouse component of Heritage East,” says Niki Lim, marketing associate at PropNex Realty, who is handling the sale. The unit features a 3.8m floor-to-ceiling height and double-glazed windows, notes Lim. Its main door faces north-west, while the windows face south-east.

According to Lim, the Singaporean owner is selling the unit as she is looking to upgrade. “The owner spent a substantial amount to renovate the unit in 2012. That involved installing built-in carpentry and making the windows more soundproof,” she says. This would reduce the buyer’s expenditure on renovations and furnishings, Lim reckons.

Located at the intersection of East Coast Road and Telok Kurau Road, Heritage East has a conservation shophouse component that comprises a row of two-storey conservation shophouses repurposed for residential use, as well as a contemporary housing component — a separate five-storey block with a contemporary façade.
