Mah Sing had taken a risk when launching its first township development in the bustling town of Rawang on the peripheries of the city. M Residence was launched in 2012 and has been a leap worth taking, with the first few phases quickly snapped up. Mah Sing then exceeded expectations, launching M Residence 2 in the same area not long after. It was a bold and confident push forward in the development of real-estate in Rawang.
Today, the M Residence name is conspicuous with a community of beautiful landed homes, with the convenience of location, affordable price and quality build being the main driving forces of the development’s success.
Home buyers and investors are aching for more of these M Residence homes, and Mah Sing has answered with the launch of M Residence’s next addition, the Canal link homes, as well as the Caspia semi-detached link homes of the coveted M Residence 2 township.
M Residence is a freehold mixed development, with at present, 6 residential phases along with the M-Galleria commercial shop offices with plans for even more phases in the future. Spanning 225.7 acres of land, the guarded community will also offer a clubhouse, where residents of the 902 units there can enjoy a range of facilities. There are also jogging tracks, as well as recreational facilities and the canal garden.
Canal at M Residence - A home close to nature
Canal is the latest edition to M Residence, with an exclusive, 56 units of 2.5-storey super link homes, named after the linear canal garden parallel to them. The western half of the homes runs alongside the canal garden while the other half is by a lake, offering a closeness to nature.
The Canal homes are spacious, sitting on individual plots of land measuring 22’ x 80’. Built-up space of the units are expansive, totalling to 3,168 sf. The homes are evidently family-oriented, with large living and dining areas on the ground floor as well as a cozy family space on the first floor. The Canal homes also offer a functional layout of 5+1 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, ideal for large families where there can be ample space to even comfortably fit 3 generations.
The Canal residences are the perfect family home, where everyone can come together but still find privacy. Want to escape the kids and house chores for a moment? Just head onto the lanai of your master bedroom and enjoy quiet vistas of the garden and lake behind. Parents coming over for the holidays? The bedroom on the ground floor means they don’t have to climb that staircase.
Though the Canal homes begin from launching prices of RM949,800 it is well-worth considering given the spaciousness of the homes, the peace of mind the guarded community provides and the enticing facilities the clubhouse offers.
M Residence 2
A succession from the first, M Residence 2 is also a self-sustainable development of residences and commercial lots about a kilometre south from M Residence. The 154-acre gated and guarded township will also have a recreational clubhouse, featuring a swimming pool, gymnasium, and lush gardens and pavilions dotting its 4-acre compound.
M Residence 2 homes are strata-titled, which is beneficial in way that the homes are better organised. However, this also means a fee will be imposed on residents to fund maintenance of common areas (gardens, driveways, roofs etc.).
Undoubtedly, there are home buyers and investors who have the vision to overlook these minor hurdles and take hold of the opportunity to own landed property. Phase 1 and 2 of the development which saw the release of 415 Alpine homes and 296 Birch homes, all 2-storey link units, have also been completely sold out.
Caspia at M Residence 2 - A home amidst nature
The launch of Caspia homes in Phase 3 of M Residence 2, is a gladly received extension of the township. The double-storey semi-detached link/cluster homes come in 3 variants, with functional and family-friendly spaces designed for great living. These cluster homes have garden spaces at the side of the building, unlike typical semi-detacheds which also have land space behind the homes.
The first type of Caspia homes is Type C1. The 196 units are situated on expansive, 32’ x 65’ individual allotments of land, with 2,193 sf of built-up space. Next is Type C2A of the Caspia residences, where there are 120 units, also sitting on 32’ x 65’ plots of land. The homes are slightly larger than that of Type C1, having 2,205 sf of built-up space. There are only 40 units of Type C2B homes, which are also 2,205 sf in size, but offer the option of having a little more outdoor porch space, with each unit on 32’ x 75’ of land.
Just like the other family-centric homes within the township, all 3 types of Caspia homes offer a homey 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms layout, with an integrated living and dining space on the ground floor as well as a snug family area on the first floor. The contemporarily-deigned homes also have large windows and balconies, ensuring that residents can allow nature into their lives, just by having natural light illuminate the interiors, a cool breeze ventilate the spaces, and even just the sound of birds chirping to provide an ambience of calmness to the homes.
Needless to say, with such spacious gardens and surroundings of natural beauty, families will also enjoy spending time together in the outdoors, all from the comfort and privacy of their own compound. Imagine having barbecues on the weekends amidst the chirp of birds and teaching your kids how to plant carrots, or even just laze on the terrace with a book, enjoying the cool breeze of the evening.
The thoughtfully designed Caspia homes surrounded by the lush landscape as well as luxuriant clubhouse facilities are well-worth their price, with Type C1 and Type C2A units beginning from RM799,800. However, one interesting thing to note is that Type C2A is somewhat larger in built-up space than Type C1, while both have equivalent land areas. Hence, if you’re looking to ensure absolute worth of price per square feet, Type C2A is a definite steal. If you could use an extra 10 ft of outdoor space, the Type C2B units are priced from RM860,800.
The Dalea phase will also offer double-storey semi-detached homes, but will feature 72 homes of larger built-up spaces, beginning from 3,068 sf on 40’ x 85’ lands. Indicative price for these 4+1 bedroom homes are from RM1,068,800.
Affordable landed homes
The M Residence collection of homes have always appealed to home seekers and investors due to their affordable pricing, clubhouse facilities a well as guarded status. With property prices in the city and more established places skyrocketing these previous years, M Residence was a game-changer, with the first M Residence homes launched at prices beginning from RM360,000. However, the newer phases of M Residence have now been priced much higher than the initial phases, as demand for the homes have grown tremendously since they first appeared on the market. M Residence 2 was also launched with the recurring theme, where indicative prices started from RM592,800 and above.
Allure of exclusive facilities and natural beauty
With security and safety being on top of the check-list when buying a home, M Residence and M Residence 2 has definitely addressed those concerns. Both M Residence and M Residence 2 are equipped with state-of-the-art security systems set up to ensure utmost safety and privacy. The perimeter fencing of M Residence 2 is also under 24-hour CCTV surveillance, equipped with vibration sensors to detect intruders more effectively.
Apart from comfortable homes, a great development should play a role in moulding a happy and healthy lifestyle. The two M Residence developments boast their own respective residents-only clubhouse, a much welcomed benefit to those wanting a wholesome way of life. The clubhouse at M Residence comes with indulgent facilities like a swimming pool, wading pool, barbecue deck, gym facilities, a multi-purpose hall, meeting rooms and even a children’s playground. M Residence 2 will also be no less luxurious, with the recreational clubhouse planned on an expansive, 4-acre compound with indulgent facilities.
As life becomes more hectic and the needs of modern life call for long hours in front of the computer, going back to nature and being in the outdoors can provide an escape from our constantly wired lives. The Grand Lotus Lake is a natural wonder shared by M Residence and M Residence 2, where there are plans to establish recreational facilities, surrounding the lake for all to enjoy.
Apart from that, the M Residence and M Residence 2 homes can bask in the fortune of having nature in their backyards. The 26-acre wetland nearby is home to a range of flora and fauna, where flocks of migratory birds can frequently be seen stopping by or flying majestically in the open sky- no doubt an attractive point for nature lovers.
Covet peace without compromising on convenience
Living away from the city does not mean that it should be any less convenient or accessible. M Residence and M Residence 2 are within easy reach of amenities. Just approximately 3km away (5 minutes’ drive) is an Aeon mall in Anggun, Rawang as well as other matured commercial hubs in Bandar Country Homes. There is also a market, food court and an upcoming supermarket within the township. The commercial phases at both developments are also set to see a range of businesses establish themselves there, such as convenience stores, eateries and more. Apart from that, hypermarkets like NSK Rawang (7km), Giant (9km) and Tesco Rawang (11km) are also not too far off.
Families will also rejoice in the good choice of schools within the vicinities of both M Residences. There are even plans for several schools within the townships themselves, as well as a Straits International School soon to open its doors. Nearby schools include those in Bandar Tasik Puteri (7 km away), like SMK Bandar Tasik Puteri, SK Tasik Puteri 2, several in Bandar Country Homes, such as SMK Taman Desa, SMK Taman Desa 2, and SJK (C) Kota Emerald in the Emerald West area.
Medical facilities are also never far off, with the KPJ Specialist Hospital in the town of Rawang approximately 10km away as well as clinics in the other townships nearby. The Sungai Buloh Hospital is also just about 20 to 25 minutes’ drive away while more choices accessible to M Residence 1 and 2 include Tropicana Medical Centre in Kota Damansara under 30 minutes’ drive in distance.
M Residence and M Residence 2 are situated just off Jalan Rawang-Bestari Jaya (formerly known as Jalan Batu Arang). This is also the main route which connects the 2 townships to Bandar Country Homes, Anggun (and Emerald West), and Rawang town. The route also leads to the Rawang Toll Plaza of the North-South Expressway (NSE), about 5km westwards.
Though Jalan Rawang-Bestari Jaya is known to be congested, massive work has been underway, which saw the stretch between Anggun to Bandar Country Homes widened to 4 lanes. Current efforts are ongoing to expand Jalan Rawang-Bestari Jaya from the Bandar Country Homes intersection to Jalan Tasik Puteri (the entrance way to M Residence 1 and 2).
However, the main attraction of the location is its great connectivity to the Kuala Lumpur-Kuala Selangor Expressway (LATAR), which in turn, links to the Guthrie Expressway (leading to Shah Alam) as well as the NSE. From LATAR, the Jalan Duta Toll of the NSE is 30km away, where with smooth traffic, the KL city centre is just about 30 minutes away.
Future connectivity to LATAR from the 2 townships will be even more convenient, with a proposed direct link from Jalan Tasik Puteri to LATAR slated to be completed in 2018. But for now, you will have to go through the town of Kundang (east of M Residence 1 and 2) to access LATAR.
With property prices in the city and more established places like Damansara, Bangsar, and even Sungai Buloh skyrocketing in these previous few years, Rawang is a highly viable choice for property buyers who dream of having their own landed homes.
With ambitious plans for developments like theme parks, a wholesale city, outlet malls, and more, in the pipeline, property in Rawang bound for new heights. To add, extensive work is also taking place, ensuring that the fast-developing town is more convenient and accessible than ever.
With that, the M Residence townships are a gleaming light of hope for property buyers, offering the vibrance of daily living which resonates with nature without compromising on the convenience of urbanity, location and affordability.
