Project Details

Location Analysis

Grange 1866 enjoys a strategic location, with three MRT stations within a 1km radius. Within a 10-minute walk, future residents will find themselves amidst the bustling Orchard Shopping Belt, with its array of malls and the Orchard MRT interchange, connecting seamlessly to the Thomson-East Coast Line and the North-South Line. Orchard Boulevard and Great World MRT stations on the Thomson-East Coast Line are also relatively nearby, reachable within approximately 12 and 15 minutes on foot, respectively.

The nearby abundance of malls and MRT stations ensures easy access to dining, entertainment, and easy access to the rest of Singapore.

For residents with private vehicles, the Central Expressway (CTE) and Pan Island Expressway (PIE) are readily accessible, facilitating swift journeys to other parts of the island. The Central Business District (CBD) is also conveniently reachable within an approximately 15-minute drive.

While no schools lie within a 1km radius of Grange 1866, several educational options are just a short drive away. River Valley Primary School and Anglo-Chinese School (Junior) are both reachable within a 6 to 8-minute drive, while Gan Eng Seng Secondary School is a 7-minute drive away. Expatriate tenant families may find the proximity of ISS International School, a 15-minute drive away, particularly appealing.

Site Plan Analysis

Despite its modest land area, Grange 1866 offers a range of standard condominium facilities distributed across two floors. The first floor features amenities such as a water cascade, waterfall lawn, garden lawn, fern garden, and a barbecue terrace. On the second floor, residents will find a lap pool, jacuzzi, and gym.

With only 60 units in this boutique development, residents can expect limited competition for the use of these facilities. This exclusivity ensures a tranquil living environment within Grange 1866, promising residents a serene and exclusive lifestyle. Furthermore, all units within the single block, spread across four stacks, are oriented in a north-south direction. This orientation provides future residents with the benefit of avoiding direct exposure to the intense afternoon sun.

Investment & Growth Potential 

To assess the growth potential of Grange 1866, we’ll delve into the average transacted price growth of three other boutique freehold developments nearby. These developments include The Marq on Paterson Hill, Paterson Suites, and Paterson Residence.

The Marq on Paterson Hill, boasting 66 luxurious units, was completed in 2011 and is just a 4-minute walk from Grange 1866. Paterson Suites, with 102 units, completed in the same year, is an 8-minute walk away. Meanwhile, Paterson Residence, completed in 2008 and housing 110 units, is a 7-minute walk from Grange 1866.

Examining the provided graph, we note that The Marq on Paterson Hill experienced a modest average transacted price growth of 2.19% from 2019 to 2024. In contrast, Paterson Suites saw a substantial growth of 16.13%, while Paterson Residence witnessed an even higher growth of 19.16% during the same period. While it’s important to acknowledge that a direct comparison between Grange 1866 and these developments may not be entirely fair due to their differing unit configurations, with Grange 1866 offering only 1 and 2-bedroom layouts, it does underscore the sustained demand for boutique developments in this locale, hinting at potential for gradual capital appreciation.

Moreover, situated in prime District 10 and offering 1 and 2-bedroom configurations, Grange 1866 is poised to attract interest from a robust tenant pool. With its freehold tenure promising enduring value appreciation, investing in Grange 1866 appears to be a prudent choice with promising growth prospects.
