Belgravia Green - Smart Home Automation System
The trend of providing Smart Home Systems for recent new property launches started a few years ago. Residents will be able to enjoy a more convenient, efficient and high-tech lifestyle.
For better comfort, connectivity, security and a touch of luxury, a smart home automation system will be a great choice. Such technology always seems to look expensive but at the rate that such systems are deployed, the cost has fallen significantly.
At Belgravia Green, this aspect is being enhanced by a Smart Home Automation System by Fibaro. Some of the capabilities include:
- Smart Digital Lockset by Yale
- Smart Security Lighting
- Motion Detection Alarms
- Window and Glass Break Detector
- Smart Air-conditioner (control temperature)
- Smart Community App for facilities booking, services booking, etc

- Smart Motion Sensor
- Smart Roller Bind
- Smart Wall Plug
- Smart Multimedia (playing favourite music)
- Smart IP Security Camera (for remote monitoring)
Belgravia Green - Attractive Prices On Offer
The intermediate terraces without lift start from S$2,730,000 and those with lift start from S$2,960,000.The developer is able to price this low as the land was bought many years ago. Above all, this is FREEHOLD landed property which you can pass to your next generations.
In comparison to a ‘medium class’ five bedrooms 99-year leasehold condominium not too far away from Belgravia Green, prices of such units are from $2,800,000.
In terms of psf, it is around $8xx at Belgravia Green, similar range as those of some new Executive Condo sold.
Please note that prices quoted are subjected to changes and depends on the availability of units for sale.
Have To Wait for Completion
The construction period is slightly longer because of the need to build a solid basement. As a result, Belgravia Green will take about 3 to 4 years to complete. To clarify, the construction has just started and the legal estimated date of completion is June 2023. However, if there is no surprises or complication, the date of completion could possibly be in 2022. Prospective Buyers would have to be patient to move in.
Prices Likely To Increase
The demand for cluster homes is rising (based on Business Times report in 2018). However, the supply of strata homes cluster housing developments is limited. As a consequence, selling prices of Belgravia Green may be increased soon leaving those buyers whose circumstances forbid them to buy at this period behind.
As in all landed properties, foreigners, including permanent residents are restricted and would have to apply for a permit via Singapore Land Authority. In addition, they would have to prove that they have contributed to the Singapore economy and each application is dealt with on a case by case basis. Approval may take around three months.
Every property would have some short-coming factors but are they major and are they difficult to overcome?
If you have a family, seeking for a 5 or 4 bedroom property in Singapore, Belgravia Green is definitely one Cluster Home that you should take a look. Such pricing (of $8xx psf and the quantum) for a Freehold landed property is going to be more and more difficult to come by. In fact, prices here are comparable with large units in many other Condo with 99-year leasehold tenure.
Moreover, with more restrictions on communal space from URA for future cluster housing developments and the impending price increase of property in Singapore, most developers will not be encouraged to develop more cluster homes.
The developer for Belgravia Green has been very intently in listening to the feedback of potential buyers of their previous cluster homes. They have has been very diligently improved on many aspects, such as bigger kitchen, private lift going up to the roof terrace and more efficient in designing the layout in Belgravia Green.
