Seri Pilmoor is a premier, low-density area recently released by the Sime Darby group in Ara Damansara, and will be completed in 2013. This area is surrounded by the Saujana and Tropicana golf courses to give it an even more elite feeling.
Set within 28.5 acres of freehold land, Seri Pilmoor area will consist of contemporary-styled 74 bungalows and 34 semi-detached homes featuring wide frontages and private backyards. So far, the interest has been from Malaysian locals who are interested in either living there or purchasing an investment property.
Interweaving with the immense greenery to create an amazing lifestyle is the resident’s-only clubhouse, called The Lanai. The Lanai is perfect for all occasions, with a swimming pool, wading pool, children’s play area, kitchenette, meeting rooms, and a pantry available.
Creating a digital smart home with security may be today’s norm. However, an amazing addition to this neighborhood are that there will be a video call facility for live consultation and reports to Sime Darby Medical Centre. Any calls, including video calls, will be free using the special Wi-Fi network connection between all Seri Pilmoor residents and the Sime Darby Medical Centre.
Nearby shopping centres include Giant, One Utama, the Curve, and Carrefour. Future plans for Ara Damansara include an international school, community square and executive suites. Ara Damansara is close to main roads and highways such as the NKVE, Federal Highway, and Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport road.
The Sime Darby group has gone to some effort to ensure that Seri Pilmoor is a success – both environmentally and metaphysically. Those who believe in the art of Feng shui will be delighted. A consultant to this estate is the famous Feng shui master, Joey Yap. With Joey Yap’s assistance, the development has a ‘cradle-like’ formation favorable for generating and locking in life-long qi to ensure an auspicious and harmonious life for all residents.
For the environmentally conscious, a 50% green footprint and other environmentally sustainable yet high tech features have been created as an environmental landmark in Seri Pilmoor. Some of these green features include roof tiles made from recycled materials, natural bamboo flooring, and a rainwater harvesting system. All finishes will also be formaldehyde-free.
Ara Damansara is an upcoming and growing area that is well connected. However, there is a some debate over whether the Seri Pilmoor, or rather the Ara Damansara area, was formerly a palm oil reserve and therefore people are worried that there may be termites. Thus, one of Seri Pilmoor’s features is that they use some kind of termite-proofing material.
So the question is whether Seri Pilmoor is worth it? If one can get over the above fact (lets face it, termites can be anywhere) there are plans for an international school and a proposed link between Tropicana and Ara Damansara, which will definitely boost Ara Damansara’s credentials into becoming a top area in Petaling Jaya.
