Amelia (also known as Amelia Garden Homes) is a terrace houses with linear parks and private gardens. The residential is part of 473-acre freehold development of Desa ParkCity. It was launched in September 2007 and completed in August 2009.
Amelia comprises 110 two-storey houses and 26 three-storey houses, each sit on 22′ × 83′ land. There are over 3+1 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms in each house. Facilities available are jogging track, club house, playground and 24-hour security. It was launched in September 2007 from RM800,000 up to RM1,000,000. It was just completed in August 2009 and the prices have gone up from RM1,200,000.
Strategically structured in the modern township, there are plenty of amenities can be found in the township. Just within minutes of walking distance from Amelia, there is The Waterfront, which houses Max Value, ADG Computer Centre, Klinik Medivron, ArtWorkshop, Kluang Station, Little Einstein and TBL.
Just besides The Waterfront, there is the 17.2-ha Desa ParkCity Central Park, a huge public recreational public park for several recreational activities. Clubhouse is also located in The Waterfront that houses a pavilion lounge, swimming pools, tennis courts, badminton courts, a gymnasium and a childcare centre as well as a FIFA-size football field and two basketball courts.
The faÃ§ade of Amelia looks really modern from any corner you are viewing it. It uses modern colour scheme of grey and white. There are large sliding doors on each storey facing the garden for air ventilation and bringing in adequate natural lighting into the house. But you might find this inconvenience as neighbours behind can see your activities through the glass doors.
Location wise, Desa ParkCity is not located rightly in the exclusive area. It is located in between of Bandar Menjalara and Kepong. But comparing it to other modern township developments like Bukit Jelutong, Sierramas and Ara Damansara; Desa ParkCity is much better located due to its closes proximity to the Kuala Lumpur city centre, Damansara Heights and Bandar Utama. In addition, amenities available in Desa ParkCity are far better than others as well.
Accessibility wise, you need to fork out RM1.60 to reach Damansara and Petaling Jaya via LDP. Then, you also have to fork out another RM2.00 to get to Mont Kiara and Sri Hartamas. In spite of the high toll cost, traffic congestion is not your biggest problem commuting to work. But there is almost no public transportation available in the area, so living without owning vehicle would almost be impossible here.
The area is still lacking of amenities at the moment, as most planned amenities are still under development. These include a hospital (a joint venture between the developer and Subang Jaya Medical Centre) which will be completed in 2011, and an international school (a joint venture project with Nord Anglia Education PLC). Plus, there will be a town centre to be completed in 2010 that comprises of shops, offices, serviced apartments and a hotel.
Congestion is a growing concern here. According to the developer, the total developments will total up to 7,278 residential including 4,500 condominium units in 2012. On top of that, there are also a growing number of developments in Sunway SPK Damansara and Villa Manja. Adding with several commercial developments commencing right now, traffic congestion seems to be a headache.
In terms of its pricing, the prices around here are not making sense for investment. A terrace house for over RM1,000,000? Well, you have to believe it. It is the price for today’s modern living experience.
