A four-storey terraced house on Shelford Road is on the market for $5.6 million ($1,217 psf). Located in prime District 11, the property sits on a 1,884 sq ft plot and has a gross floor area of about 4,600 sq ft.

The ground floor comprises a multifunctional room with a 4.5m ceiling height. Cross-beams are used to create an uninterrupted space. The owner has used the space to host children’s parties and showcase art. There are gallery hooks and universal three-way light tracks on the ceiling.

All five en-suite bedrooms have space for a double bed, study table, wardrobe and TV area. The floors and doors have semi-acoustic padding to dampen footsteps and sounds. The house is also equipped with a platform lift.

The design concept of the house provides spacious living areas for families to create enduring memories and live harmoniously, says Michelle Loh, the designer.


All the building materials and furnishings are of high quality and personally selected by the property’s designer, Michelle Loh

The new owner will be buying a uniquely designed home in a highly desired neighbourhood. All the building materials and furnishings are of high quality, and Loh did much of the creative tiling in the house herself.

New owners will not need to do much renovation, and there are many areas that they can further customise to their preference, says Candice Tan, senior sales director at Savills Residential, the exclusive marketing agent.


The kitchen is well-ventilated and comes with fans and air-conditioning. There are two ovens and the other appliances are well-maintained.

The property was bought in 2012 for $3.55 million and is being sold now because the owner is moving to the US. The master bedroom on the fourth floor has a 4.3m ceiling height and extends out onto a sheltered patio.

The master bathroom has his-and-her vanity tops and a sunken bath- tub. The tiles in the accompanying steam room were also laid by Loh.

The junior master suite is designed for children, with multifunctional spaces for teaching and play. It comes with a cubby space and ample storage. The en-suite bathroom has a sunken bath and a child-friendly toilet.

There have been eight viewings since the property was listed at the beginning of October, says Tan. Potential buyers are likely to be owner- occupiers who see more value in the house than a typical terraced house on Shelford Road, she says.
