Wayton Court is one of the older and well-established freehold apartment blocks located in Pulau Tikus of Penang. The Pulau Tikus suburb is considered to be one of the most “upper class” and prominent neighborhoods in Penang. It has its fair share of mansions, bungalows and colonial buildings, high-rise condominiums (such as those in Gurney Drive) as well as many first class international hotels and resorts.
Wayton Court is a low-density development with only 60 units that are housed within a single block of 15 stories. This ensures that the residents of Wayton Court are able to enjoy their privacy but yet still be familiar with the other residents on their floor or within the building. Other similar residential developments that can be found in the vicinity of this apartment are Desa Melor and Jermal Court.
There are several amenities such as schools, medical centres and a popular mall that can be found nearby Wayton Court. Some of the schools surrounding it are Phor Tay Private High School, SMJK Phor Tay, Penang Chinese Girls’ School and Convent Pulau Tikus. These schools are all within walking distance except for Convent Pulau Tikus. While it is not located very far away, it will be much more quicker to drive down along Jalan Burma to reach it.
The popular shopping mall would be Gurney Plaza as it is strategically located in the famous Gurney Drive promenade. It is about 10 minutes drive from Wayton Court and the mall can be accessed by turning into Jalan Kelawei from Jalan Bagan Jermal or via inter roads that lead right up to it. Residents will find many retail shops and entertainment choices within the mall. Finally, medical centres such as Tropicana Medical Centre and Penang Adventist Hospital are located along Jalan Burma itself, a mere 5 minutes apart from one another.
For residents and visitors of Wayton Court who have their own mode of transport, the apartment is accessible via Jalan Bagan Jermal and Jalan Burma and is located about 4.2 km to Magazine Circus and the city centre of Georgetown. As for those who require public transportation to go to and from the apartment, there is the Rapid Penang Bus 101, 104 and 304 which passes through Jalan Burma a short distance outside the building.
For those seeking to own a property that has so much going for it, Wayton Court might be one to consider. This is because not only is it freehold and located in an enviable part of the culturally rich island of Penang, it is also a low density development which allows for better privacy due to lesser human traffic. In addition, it is also very close to good amenities, making it worth considering.
However, the traffic along Burmah Road is usually heavy, more so during the school-going rush hour. The morning market at the junction of Jalan Bagan Jermal would further aggravate the traffic situation. Apart from that, the traffic conditions would be smooth in the later part of the morning.
