Last Saturday, my friend an real estate agent asked me to tag along to view a studio unit in Gaya Melawati. He was with the owner of the unit which had been handed vacant possession by Sime Darby on June 2012.
There are 4 blocks of apartments of 11 storey with total of 240 units of apartments ranging from 492 sq ft studio apartment, 2 bedrooms and 2 baths apartments of 972 sq ft and 1052 sq ft. The studio apartment I viewed had a great view overlooking the MRR2 highway and hill but the sound of passing cars on the highway can be heard without being too loud. I guess those bigger size apartment of 972 sq ft which faces the MRR2 could easily heard the car passing sound much more clearer. The workmanship of the studio apartment is good but the ceiling height is low around 9 feet. Installing a celling fan will be challenging and a wall-mounted fan would be ideal to avoid unnecessary injuries. From my discussion with my friend, he said the asking price for the studio unit range from RM270k to RM320 depending on the floors and blocks. As for the bigger unit apartment i.e. 1052 sq ft, sellers are asking from RM440k to RM550k. Rental from studio unit starts from RM1,200 per month for unfurnished unit and RM1700 to RM1800 per month for the 1052 sq ft apartment.
Below are some photos for viewing.
