Ruminate Ipoh’s landform; limestone hills set against clear blue skies, framed by plush foliage. Those living within the Klang Valley can now own this calming lifestyle without needing to travel for hours on end as S P Setia Bhd (S P Setia) has crafted a unique refuge set against iconic Bukit Takun, encompassed by the Templer Park and Kanching rainforest reserves dubbed Setia Eco Templer, Rawang.

The land expanse is as natural as can be, and is a spot whereby flora, fauna and a myriad of bird species have co-existed harmoniously, since time immemorial.

This township draws its inspiration from the experiences of Field Marshall Sir Gerald Walter Robert Templer (Gerald Templer), a senior British Army officer popular for his defeat of the guerrilla rebels in Malaya, which took place between 1952 and 1954.

Setia Eco Templer narrates the story of Gerald Templers voyage into Malaya, one that took him from the immaculate estates of an English home to the bizarre experiences and the ethnic diversity of the Peranakan period, Malaysia once echoed.

Though the earliest activity in Rawang came from the mining, agriculture and manufacturing industry, its key business tin mining ceased in 1959 as a result of World War II, the Japanese occupation and the collapsing of the global tin market.

Modern day Rawang draws the attention of popular property creators in Malaysia, alike S P Setia as well as prospective property buyers looking for landed homes at greater value, as the locale is said to offer such homes at an increased affordable rates as compared to the other parts of the Klang Valley.

Charming Heritage Addresses

Setia Eco Templer is a 194-acre township and the leasehold expanse is expected to take up to 10 years to complete. Those interested to be a part of the history-steeped township swathed in grandeur, can choose from a wide variety of architecturally diverse offerings which include Peranakan Straits and Amantara.

Peranakan Straits offers unique homes that mirror the architecture used in the construction of heritage shop houses, some that are even more than 100 years old commonly found in parts of Malacca, Penang and even in Singapore.

Amantara on the other hand are homes crafted for those who seek relaxation and serenity whereby every day is like a holiday. Each home in this parcel is fashioned to look like a resort, with design cues taken from Balinese architecture, characteristically centuries-old design influenced by Bali’s Hindu origins, and its ancient Javanese elements.
