5 Reasons Not To Buy Gamuda Gardens
We have looked at a variety of reason not to buy Gamuda Gardens, and we thought we should share it for those who are intending to make a property purchase around this area. If purchasing a landed house (technically we mean non-high rise) such as a double-storey terrace house, linked houses, townhouse, semi-detached or a bungalow is your choice, please continue to read on.
Here’s why we think you should not buy Gamuda Gardens
Landed homes is not your preferred choice
Not everyone fancy living in a landed property. You may prefer to live in a serviced apartment or condominium for the abundance of amenities and conveniences at your doorstep such as the gym on the ground floor, swimming pool on the rooftop etc.
If that is what you have in mind, probably the terrace houses in Gamuda Gardens is not the right choice for you. Landed houses are usually preferred by those who have families, elderly folks, growing children or for those who prefer not to live in cramped living areas. Landed houses are also great if you like lower density living with more open spaces.
If living in a high rise is what you prefer, check out Gaia Residences in Gamuda Gardens. Innovative and smart space usage with all the amenities you would expect in an apartment. Prices start from RM370K (price is accurate at the time of writing), and Gaia can be an ideal starter home, an investment, a holiday getaway or probably a future retirement home.
You don’t like living in an area with greenery, lush landscaping and lakes
Well, I get it … it may not be everyone’s cup of tea to have lush greenery, lakes and landscaping. For those who enjoy the hustle and bustle of the city centre, something like Manhattan in New York where you can practically hear the ambulance /police/fire engine/traffic 24×7, then to buy Gamuda Gardens might not be the right decision. Those who are used to living in the city will find it hard to adapt to the quietness of the suburbs.
As per the image above, this is an artist illustration of one of the five cascading lakes in Gamuda Gardens with jogging tracks and cycling paths. Along the lake are also lookout point, wetlands, waterfalls (due to the cascading lakes… its not Niagara Falls), camping grounds etc. It is not a concrete jungle and more of a well-manicured and landscaped gardens as well as beautiful backyard garden linking the gated and guarded residential zones. Residents can go for a jog around the lake or enjoy the beautiful scenery while having a meal at the Waterfront Village fronting the lake.
You prefer living in a smaller space. 2,000 sq ft home is over-whelming for you
The smallest build-up for the Gamuda Gardens terrace houses are 1,961 sq ft right up to 2,400 sq ft and to some, it might be a tad too big to manage. Smaller spaces mean lesser maintenance and lesser cleaning. In fact, the cities these days are full of small tiny apartments intended for urban living with sizes barely 500 sq ft. This is similar to the Tiny House trend that we see in the United States.
So if you are looking for a tiny house range, Gamuda Gardens may not have a tiny version of Terrace House for you. Currently, the double-storey terrace houses come with 4 bedroom and 3 or 4 bathrooms, depending on the layout. Occupants of these terrace houses would be able to enjoy having an extra room for the visiting guest, an elderly relative, as a hobby room or even as a man cave!
The generous space and innovative open layout make these homes perfect for newlyweds, small families, large families, multi-generational families – there is something for everyone! However if you prefer smaller residential units, do consider East Parc @ Menjalara or Gaia Residences that comes with one, two or three-room options.
Your workplace and home must be within 10 minutes of where you live, by foot or by driving
If you prefer to live very close to your workplace, then it is worth considering properties nearer to your office. In this case then to buy Gamuda Gardens is not the right choice unless your office is within a few kilometres from Gamuda Gardens.
Currently, Gamuda Gardens doesn’t have any large commercial spaces, however, it in the plan that there will be Gamuda City in the future. As the township will be developed over a 15-year project, the commercial offices will be built in the later stages.
If you are a business owner, you will have the opportunity to move your office and operations to Gamuda Gardens City in time to come. At the moment, your choice of commuting to Kuala Lumpur city would be a 45-minute car ride or you can hop on the provided-free-shuttle to go to KTM Kuang Komuter station. The KTM station is a mere 3 kilometres away and you can easily park and ride as well. It connects you to Sungai Buloh MRT station which gives you a variety of options to go around Greater Kuala Lumpur.
You don’t like to live in a township
Some might not prefer to live in a township and may prefer to live in single developments such as apartments or condominiums that are built within established neighbourhoods. Gamuda Gardens at the moment is a new township and amenities and facilities are being built as we speak.
At the time of writing, Gamuda Gardens will be home to a private school, several public schools, clubhouse, entertainment zones, a 50-acre park and more. Neighbouring Gamuda Gardens are well-established townships so you can always pop by the surrounding neighbourhoods if you are a keen explorer. Gamuda Gardens residential areas are fully gated and guarded, so security is top-notch for those who have security at the top of their minds. Comparatively, future residents of Gamuda Gardens will feel completely at ease even though it is a new township.
The above is what we’ve summed up and what we think might not make you buy Gamuda Gardens if you believe you fall into any of the above 5 reasons.
