One Residence is a gated and guarded community within the fast-growing area of Sungai Ara, Penang. It is developed by Ideal Property Development over a 100-acre freehold land. Located in Sungai Ara on the South-east part of Penang Island, One Residence is also within close proximity to the Setia Pearl Island Country Club, one of the only two golf clubs available on Penang Island.
Other nearby amenities are schools, which include both primary and secondary schools. A Chinese primary school is also available nearby, which is SekolahRendah Jenis Kebangsaan (Cina) Chong Cheng. There is no shopping mall within the immediate vicinity of Sungai Ara. However, other malls such as Giant Hypermarket, Sunshine Square and Bukit Jambul Complex are not too far from it. The Sungai Ara village, which is located nearby, has people selling fresh produce daily. For those taking public transport, Sungai Ara is served by Rapid Penang Bus No.302, 305 and 308.
Based on some research, some of the main concern of One Residence is the traffic jam. The roads of concern are the junction at Jalan Bayan, as well as the junction at Jalan Relau, where the jams can extend for a distance of over 0.5km. Other major drawbacks of One Residence are one of the roads nearby, Jalan Mahkamah, has a night market every Saturday night, and hence it is closed for the public. Therefore, despite the strategic location, one must consider the time taken to travel to places before purchasing this property.
