SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - A combined penthouse apartment at The Quinn, located along Bartley Road in District 19, is on the market for $3.5 million. According to the property listing, two duplex penthouse units have been amalgamated into the 3,240 sq ft penthouse. This means the asking price translates to $1,080 psf on the floor area.
The amalgamated penthouse unit is listed for sale by private treaty by JLL. According to the listing, the unit now comprises six bedrooms, two study rooms and three bathrooms. The unit also features a balcony on the first floor and an attached balcony beside the master bedroom on the second floor.
The listing states that since two units have been combined, an additional buyer’s stamp duty will likely be applicable to the sale of the second unit.
The Quinn was completed in 2016 and comprises 139 units. There are four residential blocks that are each five storeys tall. Typical units and penthouse units comprise one to four bedrooms, and each unit measures 484 sq ft to 1,744 sq ft.
