SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - The most profitable deal over the week of Oct 6 to 13 is the sale of a four-bedroom unit on the ground floor at The Ladyhill. It transacted at $6.95 million ($2,117 psf) on Oct 8, after having been previously bought at $4.34 million ($1,321 psf). It therefore earned the seller a 60% profit of $2.61 million, or an annualised profit of 3.1% over more than 15 years.
The Ladyhill is the maiden luxury condominium of SC Global Developments, now a developer well-known for its luxury offerings. The freehold development in prime District 10 is low-density, comprising just 55 units in a four-storey building. Architecture of the development is by award-winning SCDA Architects.

The condominium is located in a tranquil enclave along Ladyhill Road, right opposite Shangri-La Hotel Singapore. It is in proximity to the Orchard Road shopping belt, Tanglin Mall and Singapore Botanic Gardens.
The second top gain of the week was from the sale of a 1,668 sq ft, three-bedroom unit on the 10th floor at Watermark @ Robertson Quay. The unit changed hands for $2.8 million ($1,678 psf) on Oct 13, 11½ years after it was purchased for $1.65 million ($989 psf). The seller hence earned a 70% profit of $1.15 million, or an annualised 4.6% profit.
Watermark @ Robertson Quay, developed by Hong Leong Holdings, comprises 206 units in four 10-storey blocks. The units are above a row of conserved warehouses and overlook the Singapore River. Its location in District 9 is just a short walk away from the cafes and bars along Robertson Quay, and a few minutes’ drive from Great World City and Robertson Walk shopping malls.
The third most profitable deal is the resale of a unit at Holland Hill Park in District 10. The 1,539 sq ft, three-bedroom unit on the fourth floor was transacted at $2.28 million ($1,481 psf). It was previously purchased for $1.16 million ($754 psf) in February 2007. It netted the seller a 97% profit of $1.12 million, which translates to an annualised profit of 5.1% over nearly 14 years.
Holland Hill Park is a 40-unit condominium by Keppel Land. The freehold condominium, located along Holland Hill just off Queensway, was completed in 1992.
