20trees (also known as 20 Trees) in Melawati has been designed to integrate every day human life with its natural landscape. It is a luxury residential hillside development with landed properties and low-rise apartments.
As 20trees tries to flow with the natural landscape, SDB Properties (the developer) has tried to keep the residential buildings flowing with the natural landscape like cascading terraces. As a result, all of the buildings have a view of Melawati’s famous quartz ridge in the distance.
There are 83 “Residences” at 20trees, which are made up of the landed properties (courtyard homes, terrace homes, and garden homes). The flagship design is the courtyard home, which was inspired by traditional Asian courtyard homes. Modernizing it, it has a 760 sf inner courtyard garden complete with a plunge pool. The open-plan living spaces open directly out into this courtyard.
The master bedroom at 20trees has wide, full-height windows with a railing so that it seems like there is a balcony where people can go to look at the outdoors. There is also another second master bedroom, however it has a separate entrance from the outside which makes it like a guest suite. The garden homes at 20trees are smaller than the courtyard homes, and has 300 sf courtyard. The terrace homes also have a private garden, however this has been elevated 1-storey above street level.
There are 11 low-rise apartment blocks at 20trees, with a total of 118 units to choose from. There are 4 different layouts to cater to different lifestyles. Units on the ground level have their own private garden. Units can either come with a private lift lobby, or one that has direct access to the car park. Each floor has just 2 units each.
Other features of 20trees include audio intercom, Wifi enabled homes, a panic button in the master bedroom, gated and guarded entrance with CCTV, clubhouse, designer kitchen equipped with a fridge, built-in oven and/or microwave, hob, and hood. There is also a spacious wardrobe in the master bedroom.
20trees is a luxury mixed residential property development in Taman Melawati. It is suited better for those who are owner-occupiers rather than as a rental property investment, as there is no public transport nearby. Although the area may seem “far off”, it is about 30 minutes drive away from KL itself. However, this could be considered a plus as it is far from the hustle and bustle of KL city life so you can indulge in the beauty of nature.
There are many facilities and attractions nearby 20trees, such as schools, Damai Services Hospital, Zoo Negara, UTAR (Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman), Giant, and more so technically you are not totally away from civilisation. Some potential investors may be concerned about landslides that have previously happened over the past 20 years nearby. Most of these landslides have actually happened miles away from here, except for 1 which was 1 mile away from the 20trees vicinity.
Although the landslides are rare, it may cause some concern for those who would just prefer not to have to live with that kind of stress. Despite this, there are many ‘better’ developers such as Sunway who are venturing into this particular area, which goes to show that this area is a viable place to live in.
