Jermal Court is a low-density apartment built on freehold land. The 1-block building consists of 4 floors and has a total number of 40 apartment units. Each unit comes with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with a built-up area of 900sf. Facilities provided include parking, 24-hour security patrol and a landscaped garden.
The Penang Chinese Girls School, SMJK Phor Tay, St Nicholas Home, SJK Perempuan Cina, SK Convent Pulau Tikus and the Phoy Tay private school are all less than 10 minutes walking distance. Tanjung Medical Centre and Penang Adventist Hospital are both easily accessible via 5 minutes walk. There are two markets located just outside the apartment (Pulau Tikus Market, Gottlieb Road Market) and a Shell petrol station.
Jermal Court is also only 10-minute drive away from Gurney Drive. The apartment is also accessible via Jalan Mount Erskine, Jalan Gottlieb, Jalan Bagan Jermal and Jalan Burma. Alternatively, you can also choose to ride via the bus stop at Jalan Bagan Jermal as Bus 101, 104 and 304 all pass by this apartment block.
The very fact that owning a unit at Jermal Court costs almost half a million Ringgit speaks volumes on how valuable the location of this building is. This low-density apartment assures its occupants of a quiet and peaceful living despite residing in close proximity to half a dozen schools, colleges, medical centers and markets.
Having said that, living in a building located on a main road also means having to live with heavy traffic. You can expect to be stuck in a jam especially if you travel along Jalan Bagan Jermal on a daily basis. Second of all, Jermal Court is only 4-storey high but comes with no lifts so the living area may not be suitable for elderly folks who cannot climb stairs.
Each apartment unit is also only given one car park slot so it might be a problem for folks with more than one car living under a single unit. Also, do note that as the building is more than a decade old, you should consider budgeting in renovation costs as well. Jermal Court is most suited for young couples, single professionals and students studying around that area.
