Michelle Yong, CEO of Aurum Land, says the acquisition will broaden the company’s scope into the landed property sector. “On a personal level, I plan to design my own family home within this bespoke collection of luxury houses and am excited to extend the same opportunity to deliver bespoke design services to meet the lifestyle needs of our discerning buyers,” she adds. Aurum Land is the developer behind projects including The Hyde on Balmoral Road in District 10 and Nyon on Amber Road in District 15.
The sale of Kew Lodge was brokered by Sakal Real Estate
Partners, with the deal marking the real estate investment advisory and brokerage firm’s first collective sale transaction. Rajah and Tann are the appointed legal representative for the owners.
"In land-scarce Singapore we face a comparatively restrictive fresh supply of new landed properties as opposed to non-landed properties. We view ownership of prime landed homes as a significant store of wealth that presents significant capital upside over time. A landed home purchase today can be a strategic investment for future generations,” says Steven Ming, managing partner at Sakal Real Estate Partners, who also co-founded the firm in 2018.
The sale of Kew Lodge is pending approval of the Strata Titles Board.
