Condo insider review: Meyer Mansion – sea views, stunning interiors
There’s a lot of construction along Meyer Road, not to mention the wider Katong / Amber area, and it looks to us like the competition is pushing developers to ever greater heights. GuocoLand has risen to the challenge with Meyer Mansion, offering up a differentiated and desirable new build that takes full advantage of the East Coast lifestyle. Plus views to die for.
Inspired by the grand old bungalows that lined the Meyer Road stretch many moons ago, this freehold new launch condo looks to revisit that affluent coastal life. It’s a vision that’s backed up by 3.2m high ceilings and the site density, with 75% of the area given over to facilities and landscaping.
Where One Meyer is smaller format, and MeyerHouse is ultra-large (and can’t boast the views), Meyer Mansion offers a wide unit mix with much to love. The 1 to 4 bedroom units start from $1.27m – and there’s a rare mix of sea-facing options, with the mid to high floor 1br units boast sea and city views.
With two pools, a lawn, and a short walk to the future Katong Park MRT Station, Meyer Mansion is definitely worth a look for anyone hankering for the best of the East Coast lifestyle.
The Boulevard Brief
– Who it’s for: Those who dream of a seaside, legacy home; East Coast upgraders.
– What’s to love: Stellar location, space-efficient layouts and those forever unblocked views!
– How much it will set you back: The one bedroom starts at $1.27m, while the 1,765 sqft, 4 bedroom units start at $4.63m.
– Standing out from the crowd: Smaller-format units with views are hard to come by, so Meyer Mansion’s 1 bedroom apartment with unblocked sea views is a rarity indeed. (Also loving the 4br apartment with balconies facing both the sea and the tranquil, landed house estates.)

Meyer Mansion design
This future East Coast landmark has been designed by ADDP Architects with interiors by President’s Design Award winner Peter Tay.
Peter Tay’s interior design plan has resulted in well-appointed spaces that are sophisticated and welcoming. Cool greys and warm beige combined with hints of dull gold for a timeless look.
The luxurious interiors include beautifully appointed kitchens fitted with premium European appliances by V-Zug and Liebherr, brass faucetry and sleek cabinets.
Inspired by seaside bungalows, Meyer Mansion’s balconies are naturally a key feature, with wide entertaining spaces and sea breezes. The bronze perforated screens offer a modern, metallic accent to the building design (along with shade and privacy).
Meyer Mansion location
This 85,249 sqft freehold site is on the sea-facing side of Meyer Road, perhaps the most prestigious street in District 15. The condo is oriented in such a way that residents enjoy unblocked views of the sea as well as the island.
Its city fringe location on the East Coast means it’s close to most key locations – 8-10 minute drive to the CBD, 6 minutes to Suntec, 15 minutes to Orchard and Changi Airport.
When complete, residents can walk to the Katong Park MRT Station (Thomson-East Coast line) in just 6 minutes – improving the area’s connectivity like never before.
The area is family-friendly with easy access to ECP (4 mins walk via underpass), Singapore Sports Hub (4 mins drive) and malls like Parkway Parade (3 mins drive) and Suntec City (6 mins drive) nearby.
Plus, you can drive to 14 prestigious schools in 7 minutes or under, while Eton Preschool and Brighton Montessori are a 10-minute stroll away.
Meyer Mansion facilities
Meyer Mansion is kitted out with everything you’d expect in a luxury condo from the house of GuocoLand. We probably would have traded one of the two pools for a tennis court, but on the other hand, you’ll always have one pool in the sun (or shade – according to your preferences). There’s also a grand lawn (a Boulevard favourite) and appealing garden landscapes.
Meyer Mansion facilities include:
- 40m lap pool, leisure pool, jacuzzi
- Gym & children’s playground
- Clubhouse & beach house
- Alfresco dining & BBQ pavilion
- Grand lawn, mist garden & swings; coconut grove
- Arrival court & reception lounge
Meyer Mansion pricing
Priced from $2,600 psf, it’s doubtless a steep increase on recent transactions at surrounding high-end condos on Meyer Road. On the other hand, The Meyerise (the most recent build, completed in 2014) will be 10 years old when Meyer Mansion opens its doors.
It’s also fair to say Meyer Mansion will outpace its neighbours in terms of luxury amenities and interiors, if not average area. The larger-format MeyerHouse will appeal to an entirely different buyer (space, privacy, exquisite interiors vs views, facilities, smaller formats).
|Project||Av. Price||Av. Psf||Av. Area|
|The Meyerise||$2,698,250||$2,088||1,276 sqft|
There’s a lot to love about Meyer Mansion, and unique selling points like one bedroom apartments with views, or dual-aspect 4br residences with both the sea views and tranquil, landed house outlook definitely impress.
