A Grand Residential Showcase  

by Pool Builders on 04-10-2012 in Articles

Nothing blends into the background at McKinley Hill. Here, every development has been designed to stand out and make an impression. At the residential block, seven communities surprise and engage buyers with their dramatic sense of scale and uncompromising stance against predictable, cookie-cutter real estate. If the details are what make a home, McKinley Hill has successfully tapped in the essence of living well. By their size alone, the township's seven residential communities epitomize luxury at its very best. And with their distinctive design themes, they accommodate and satisfy all manner of customer tastes and expectations.

Village and Villas

McKinley Hill's first salvo in the residential block is the McKinley Hill Village, launched in 2004. The project's location near the iconic Forbes Park and the Manila Golf and Country Club makes it the perfect address for upscale clients that move in the most elite circles.

The community offers 469 prime subdivision lots, ranging from 188 to 296 square meters in size. Lot owners have the freedom to design their dream homes based on any of the eight architectural designs: Tuscan-inspired plantation villa, Lisbon-inspired-inspired contemporary mansion, Lyons-inspired modern mansion, Cadiz-inspired Spanish-Mediterranean casa, Seville-style patrician casa, Paris-style neoclassic chateau, Florida-inspired waterfront residence and Southern-Californian style estate house. To date, McKinley Hill Village is almost completely sold out. Its sprawling landscape is dotted by 34 completed houses. Thirty-seven more are under way.

A clubhouse nearby houses a gym and function hall right next to an Olympic-size swimming pool, children's pool, Jacuzzi and playground.

Meanwhile, condominium units with a Spanish-Mediterranean flair make up the McKinley Hill Garden Villas. The buildings resemble villas with their low-pitched tiled roofs, pastel-coloured facades and wrought iron balcony grillwork. The project;s sold €"out first phase, launched in 2006, hosts limited edition two-to-three bedroom homes in four clusters ranging from four to five stories. In 2007, Phase 2 unveiled 117 units in four six-story clusters. Today, 91 percent of its one-to-three bedroom lofts are taken up. First-class play amenities such a swimming pool, game room, playground, function area and lush gardens can be enjoyed by homeowners in both phases.

Executive Residences

Stamford, a sold-out, three-tower community designed for success-driven professionals, offers luxurious conveniences in a contemporary setting. Its studio units, offering 22.5 to 32 square meters of space, are a short elevator ride away from a ground-level retail arcade. For those that need a private place to unwind, the roof deck at Towers 1 and 2 features a lap pool, pool deck and landscaped greenery.

Morgan Suites also caters to executives on the go. The three-tower address offers studio units and one-bedroom suites that come with a full range of creature comforts. A retail arcade at the ground level offers the daily essentials, while recreational amenities such as a lap pool, badminton court and multipurpose hall are reserved for the residents' exclusive use. What's more, those that call Morgan Suites home enjoy a location right across from One World Square at the McKinley Hill CyberPark.

Since it was introduced in 2008, the project has enjoyed a warm reception. The first tower is sold out, while the second tower is 39 percent taken up. The last tower is yet to be launched to the public.

Italian-themed homes

Two of McKinley Hill's residential projects take their inspiration from the most beautiful places in Italy. The Tuscany Private Estate pays tribute to Tuscany, one of Italy's most famous wine regions. Now 67 percent sold, the 1.5 hectare enclave is made up of seven residential clusters with diverse facades in festive hues. Buyers that want to get in on the lifestyle offered at The Tuscany have a choice of executive studios or suites with one to three bedrooms. Penthouse homes are also available in one-bedroom loft or two-level, three bedroom layouts.

Healthy recreation is very much a part of everyday life in the community. Lush greenery encircles a play area called Isola Toscana, which showcases a variety of pools, a sunbathing lounge, spa/sauna, massage room, gym, function room, play room and playground. A nature park with a pond and a lagoon can be found at the Parco Bello. Another main attraction is the Ponte Vecchio, a four-level edifice inspired by its namesake, the most famous and oldest bridge in Italy's Florence.

The Venice, in the other hand captures the magnificence of Italy's Venice. The community boasts seven residential towers, each resembling a €frro€----a gondola's uniquely shaped iron head----from above. The recently launched Alessandro and Bellini towers, now 63 and 37 percent sold respectively, give buyers a choice of executive studios or one-to-three bedroom suites with wide windows and balconies. Steps away from the homes is an oasis brimming with first-rate play amenities. There's a swimming pool, fitness station, play area, tennis and badminton courts, an outdoor spa, a children's pool and playground, palm court, pond, fountains and sculpture, rock and mediation gardens.

The towers of The Venice overlook the Grand Canal at the McKinley Hill town center, which offers authentic gondola rides.

Dormitory-style residences Meeting the lifestyle needs of BPO employees working at the nearby cyberpark is The Woodridge Residences. Completed in June this year, the project offers quality, affordable housing in its two six-story buildings. Dormitory-style living is made more luxurious in the project;s executive studios, boasting efficiently-planned living space for two, four, six or 10 occupants. All homes are pre-furnished with air-conditioning units, an optional single bed and sturdy double-deck beds, comfortable mattresses and metal lockers.

Each floor of the project features a communal pantry with its very own TV set. Selected Wi-Fi ready areas, meanwhile, make it easy for residents to stay connected. Adding to the list of conveniences are daily housekeeping services and 24-hour security.
