Taman Batu Permai, Jalan Ipoh
Taman Batu Permai is a guarded residential area at 5th Mile Jalan Ipoh, approximately 15 mintues drive away from Kuala Lumpur city centre. It borders other housing estates like Taman Mastiara and Pekan Batu.
A short walk from Taman Batu Permai will lead one to the little known Batu Metropolitan Park, a 24ha recreational park with jogging tracks, reflexology paths, picnic areas and exercise stations facilities.
With so many residential developments in this part of Jalan Ipoh, amenities too are plenty and easily available. For instance, there are many schools and playgrounds for children as well as shops, mini markets, night markets, eateries, shopping malls and wet markets. For shopping there are many hypermarkets and supermarkets nearby like Jusco, Tesco Extra, Carrefour, The Store and 99 Mart.
In terms of accessibility, residents of Taman Batu Permai have easy access to Kuala Lumpur, Selayang, Kepong via Jalan Kuching, Middle Ring Road II and Duta-Ulu Kelang Expressway. Meanwhile, the Batu Village KTM Commuter station, which is just 10 minutes walk away, provides a much needed public transportation for convenient daily travelling.
Taman Batu Permai is attractive in the sense that it is strategically located very close to Kuala Lumpur city centre, while offering a more affordable price range compared to the city's properties. Plus, there are a good combination of plenty of amenities and lush greenery here.
Though properties in Taman Batu Permai are a mature development, but with lots of recent developments in this area and the scarcity of land in city outskirts, property price here is expected to increase. However, with all these developments comes the consequence in the form of peak hours traffic jams.
