Investors, upgraders, first home buyers and, yes, unabashed property addicts – start your engines. There’s so much on offer in the Singapore property market right now, it’s a full-time job just keeping up with it. Our job, actually.
Here’s our pick for a weekend’s worth of property viewings…
#JustListed luxury resale
Marina Bay Suites high-floor 4br apartment
This spectacular view (and the apartment that looks out on it) has just hit the market, offering 2,050 sqft of luxury living in a prime District 01 address. Marina Bay Suites is one of the top CBD residences, with comprehensive amenities, cafes, restaurants, office towers and the MRT right on your doorstep, and views of Marina Bay, the sea and the city.
Yours for $6m.
Regency Park spacious 3br apartment
This sprawling three-bedroom apartment offers generous entertaining spaces, a wonderful parents’ retreat (with private balcony), and lush, tranquil views across the vast condo grounds. Regency Park is the largest condo in the sought-after Bishopsgate area, offering extraordinary privacy and seclusion just minutes from the action of River Valley.
Novena dual-title terrace house
This standout architectural build comprises two terraces reconceived as a multi-generational family home. Spread across 6 floors and 8,626 sqft, it’s a stunning industrial-minimalist space by interiors firm Creative Mind. Currently, the building is laid out as 7 self-contained apartments and a two-floor office – plus a lobby floor, patio and parking. Oh, and it’s directly opposite United Square in the heart of Novena.
Nassim Mansion 4br apartment
Reposing on the largest estate in the coveted Nassim enclave, Nassim Mansion is stately, spacious and lush. This 3,477 sqft apartment offers charm, leafy outlooks and luxury fittings – we love the sunken lounge, outsize kitchen cooktop and triple wine fridge. But perhaps most impressive is the plot ratio, which at more than two hectares has just 72 apartments.
Nathan Suites 4br apartment
Set in an enviable District 10 location on the fringe of Bishopsgate, Nathan Suites is a boutique luxury condo boasting design, spacious apartments and unblocked views. This 4br apartment enjoys 2,034 sqft of light-filled living and separate dining, with a Gaggenau-filled dry kitchen and fabulous master suite.
New release offices for sale
Keen to spend the weekend in an office? Yes, we are.
PLUS Building on Cecil Street has just released 56 units. One of just five Grade A offices open to strata sales in the country, and the only one in the Raffles circle of the CBD, this is a rare opportunity to buy into Singapore’s top commercial asset class.
View them while they last.
And in case you missed previous weekends’ show-stopping showflats and unmissable listings…
New (re-)launch condo
Never before sold units at Reignwood Hamilton Scotts
This is not strictly true – the 36 unsold units in the project were acquired by developer Reignwood from KOP Properties back in 2013. But they’ve never been sold individually, and seven years on they’re still looking strong, with that iconic “sky garage” alongside the living room continuing to turn heads to this day.
Even better than the sight of your luxury cars is the view across Goodwood Hill, looking out over the lush Black and White bungalow estates and forever unblocked. The remaining apartments have been refurbished and fully furnished, and offer one of the most spacious, modern three-bedroom layouts going around at 2,756 sqft. There are also two junior penthouses with a double-height ceiling, and two triplex penthouses on offer. Prices start from $9.3m.
New launch penthouses
South Beach Residences
And then there was one… Five penthouses at South Beach Residences have already sold – the last available is a 4,446 sqft duplex featuring four bedrooms, double-height ceilings throughout, rooftop pool and interiors by Peter Tay.
Pricing is just north of $19m.
15 Holland Hill
Launched in April this year, 15 Holland Hill has already seen two of its three penthouses snapped up. Little wonder why: the 5,000+ sqft residences are set on a single floor, with sweeping views from the condo’s hilltop elevation and lush, sumptuous interiors.
The penthouse offers five bedrooms priced from $16m – and for those who want the space but not the height, there are also duplex maisonettes.
This stunning low-rise condo in District 15 offers just 56 units total, of which six are sprawling duplex penthouses. Ranging from 5,587 to 5,608 sqft, the 4.5 bedroom residences feature grand entertaining areas and a rooftop terrace.
The penthouses at MeyerHouse start from $13.52m.
New launch: 15 Holland Hill
Be among the first to see the stunning 15 Holland Hill showflat, which launched just prior to the circuit breaker. This boutique luxury project of just 59 apartments offers large-format apartments with a prime elevated location close to Holland Village. Rare formats include three single-floor penthouses of more than 5,000 sqft, and the duplex maisonette with private garden. Viewings by appointment only.
Just listed: This architectural bungalow in Sentosa Cove
Custom built for the current owners, this stunning bungalow offers a rare, 39.2m-wide frontage onto the golf course and lake, with glittering views from just about every room.
The 10,180 sqft estate on a quiet, gated road in Sentosa Cove comprises four floors of luxury living, including formal lounge and dining, family rooms, 4.5 ensuite bedrooms, attic studio and a knockout basement entertaining level with home theatre, billiards table, bar – oh, and a 3,000 bottle wine cellar.
Three grand, landed mansions
This trio of listings has just hit the market: three grand estates in the Woodlands and Upper Thomson areas offering vast proportions, leafy outlooks and sumptuous living.
– First (top left), a detached freehold house in Upper Thomson with manicured landscaping, three levels of modern, luxurious living and six bedrooms.
– Second (top right), a neoclassical mansion in Woodlands, featuring 12,900 sqft of living space on a 9,500 sqft estate. Love that long driveway, and the whole-floor master suite is truly spectacular, complete with its own breakfast room.
– Third, a grand Woodlands estate boasting leafy views and a lovely pool. A towering double-height formal living is sure to impress, while the seven ensuite bedrooms offer a world of space.
Designer ready-to-move-in units at 8 St Thomas condo
The slick new 8 St Thomas condo on River Valley’s coveted St Thomas Walk is well worth a viewing – not least for the two custom-designed units by interiors guru Rashi Tulshyan. With one decked out in Hollywood Glam-style golds, pastels and bronze, and the other a sleek New York-style black and white with a pop of cognac leather, there’s something for everyone. While they last…

Must-see River Valley condo showflats
The Avenir condo
Well, almost here. Launched in January, but not completing for a good three or four years yet, The Avenir is the latest high-end offering to hit River Valley. Developers Hong Leong and GuocoLand have teamed up to bring yet more temptation to the D09 area.
The Avenir is on River Valley Close, pretty much opposite Killiney Road – so 10 minutes or so from Orchard Road (and Somerset MRT) while retaining the riverside lifestyle bragging rights of Robertson Quay. We’re especially taken with the generous, liveable interiors – see The Avenir’s 4 bedroom plus family room unit, sprawling across 2,411 sqft, for details, floorplans, and more photos to paw through.
Rivière condo is set to redefine waterfront living in this enviable stretch of Robertson Quay. This mixed-use development takes full advantage of a rare, enormous site with total river frontage and heritage godowns to boot. The showflat includes four different units from one to four bedrooms – each one lovelier than the last.
The Iveria condo
The newest launch on the Rob Quay block, The Iveria‘s showflat opened in November and is well worth a visit. The boutique development’s bold design and liveable interiors offer a new vision for modern luxury.
Martin Modern condo
The views are just the beginning at Wallich Residence
The triplex penthouse has (famously) been taken, but there are some stunning new apartments still available, including ultra-high floor 3 and 4 bedroom units with said breathtaking views. The interiors, as you’d expect, are top notch, and a couple of units come fully furnished and ready to move in. And the facilities – they surpass expectations, making the most of the altitude to create an oasis in the sky at the 180m-high pool terrace, as well as the 220m-high private dining and 270m observation deck. The board room, likewise, is next level. See it for yourself…
There’s this pair of luxury apartments for sale at Botanic on Lloyd
The serene and wonderfully central Botanic on Lloyd condo in Oxley offers boutique luxury living within a moment’s walk of both Robertson Quay and Orchard Road. Large, quiet apartments face into the leafy condo grounds, and these four-bedroom units (one of which has been converted into 3 bedrooms) offer premium appliances and pool views.
Luxury new condos that redefine high end
Twenty-One Angullia Park condo
The spectacular Twenty-One Angullia Park development has 12 brand new apartments for sale, ready to move in, offering an immediate oasis of luxury and calm amid the hustle of Orchard Road. From high-floor three-bedroom unit commanding district and city views, to the stunning double-height four-bedroom apartments, and the triplex penthouse complete with rooftop pool, there is something for everyone here – albeit starting at $9m.
The latest amenity-rich branded residence to launch on the island eschews the usual D9-D10 haunts for the culture-filled environs of Newton – directly opposite the famed Newton Circus food centre, no less. It’s a cultural take on the five-star lifestyle, backed of course by the Pullman Hotel’s reputation for service, which for residents includes a concierge, housekeeping and personal chefs on request.
Boulevard 88 condo
Perhaps the highest-end new launch condo dropping jaws just now, Boulevard 88 combines generous proportions with hotel-grade services – literally, as the residences sit alongside new luxury hotel brand Singapore Edition.
Investor hotspot in the Tampines hub
Sales at Singapore’s largest condo development, Treasure at Tampines, have been firing, with a monster month in October seeing 87 transactions for a total value of $94,122,000. Numbers so far for November show another solid month, with the average psf nudging up from $1,372 to $1,384 – although it is still one of the lowest-priced new launch condos in the country.
East Coast new launch condo love
The Amber Road area is definitely having a moment, and one of the more eye-catching new launch condos is Coastline Residences. Designed by AGA Architects and inspired by the undulating sea (onto which it looks out), the development also boasts the rooftop pool of your dreams.
Amber Park condo
The showstopping “Stratosphere” rooftop alone is worth the visit; Amber Park‘s showflat includes a stunning model complete with viewing deck. No less amazing: the double-height five-bedroom unit and sleek two- and three-bedroom layouts on display here.
Peranakan design details meet, yes, another double-height ceiling. The Nyon condo showflat really puts on a show, from the gorgeous balcony tiles to the impressive entertaining spaces – not to mention its coveted Amber Road location.
The District 10 luxury property hitlist
The Hyde condo
Boutique luxury in Balmoral doesn’t come much nicer than The Hyde. From the luxe, overheight 1 bedroom unit to the expansive, light-filled 3 bedroom apartment, there’s plenty to fall in love with. And we haven’t even gotten to the breathtaking rooftop pool…
Those sublime Zaha Hadid curves never get old. This 3 bedroom unit at d’Leedon offers both condo and district views from every room. The highlight (apart from unrivalled facilities and onsite services) has to be the spectacularly large balcony.
