(The Star) Pinnacle of luxury living

Hunza Group, one of Penang’s leading property developers, is renowned for prestigious offerings that blend innovative design elements with distinctive lifestyle concepts.

With over 10,000 units of residential, commercial, industrial and mixed-use properties crafted over the past four decades, the group has added a trio of stylish new developments into its portfolio.

They are the Alila2 in Tanjung Bungah and Treeo in Sungai Ara on the island, as well as Mekarsari in Bertam, Kepala Batas, on the mainland.

These will be among the choice offerings at the Fair 2017 in Gurney Paragon Mall and Gurney Plaza from Thursday to July 23.

The exclusive Alila2 is an alluring 9.8-acre haven perched 223ft above sea level.

It is designed for those who appreciate the beauty of nature and the serenity of verdant surroundings.

With only 270 bungalows and semi-detached homes in the sky, housed in a pair of 33 and 34-storey towers, the low-density project is poised to redefine the notion of green living and modern luxury.

The homes are limited to only five per floor. They are sized from 1,905sq ft for typical units, up to 5,789 sq ft for the penthouse. Each comes with a minimum of two parking lots.

Its lavish interiors have striking designs and premium finishes, and open up to breathtaking sea or hill views.

Besides landscaped gardens, it also boasts amenities one would expect from a resort-inspired condominium.

They include an infinity pool with cascading waterfall, aqueduct feature and Jacuzzi beds; children’s wading pool with water play equipment, forest-themed playground, lounge area with barbecue and dining facilities, sky gourmet area, tennis court, timber decks with hammock, mini theatre and water massage room.

Alila2’s elevated ocean-fronting setting in the upscale neighbourhood of Lembah Permai in Tanjung Bungah is also auspicious from a feng shui perspective.

A resource-efficient building, it meets stringent standards of the Green Building Index and MS1525, Malaysia’s Code of Practice on energy efficiency.

Green features include heat-reducing shading devices and glass, water and energy efficient fittings, as well as a rainwater collection system.

Also, 47% of the development will be covered with trees and gardens.

There is round-the-clock security with card access. Smart home features are also installed. Completion is set for next month, five months ahead of schedule.

Mekarsari, a master-planned low-density township covering 345-acre located right opposite Bandar Putra Bertam, is set to transform the area into a dynamic enclave with its mix of residential and commercial properties.

The multi-phase project gives modern families an ideal environment to live out their dreams.

Its first phase offers 253 homes, comprising the semi-detached Mila units with a built up of 1,381sq ft, as well as zero-lot bungalows named Zinnia and Sonia that are sized at 1,760sq ft and 1,643sq ft respectively.

All are elegantly designed with contem-porary interiors, functional living spaces, quality finishings, high ceilings of up to 12ft, larger land areas and a North-South orientation to minimise direct sunlight.

Its strategic location in a fast-emerging district, earmarked to be the next growth area of the northern region, affords easy access to the North-South Highway, Prai and Penang Bridge.

Phase 1 is now open for sale while Phase 2, comprising double-storey terraces, is open for registration. Construction has reached an advanced stage with a targeted completion by early next year.

Home hunters can also register for the one-of-a-kind, nature-inspired affordable development, Treeo. Set on elevated land in Sungai Ara, it will enjoy unobstructed views of the cityscape.

With lush hills as its background and over 50% of the site dedicated to greenery, it promises a wholesome living environment enhanced by a wide selection of lifestyle facilities.
