Ceriaan Kiara is located very near to Kampung Segambut Dalam Tambahan. The village is just two doors away, right besides Kiara 1888. Luckily for the residents, as they do not have to look down at the village every single day unlike the way the residents from Kiara 1888 suffer. But the fact remains that the condominium is still near to the village; it results in lack of exclusivity. Even though Ceriaan Kiara is another new kid on the block, it does not have any distinctive feature to differentiate it from another. It offers normal basic facilities like other condominiums. The facilities, layouts and façade are just average and dated in terms of design.
The price of Ceriaan Kiara is the main attraction for investors to look at. It can be considered as the cheapest development in Mont Kiara, as it was tagged from RM330 psf at its launch. The price was remarkable as the market price for condominiums in the same league is around RM500 psf. Currently, the price is hovering around RM470 psf, still a good price for grab for subsale market.
