Villa Flora is a condominium building in the prestigious TTDI area. Some would even go further and call it a heavenly as Villa Flora is beautifully landscaped, so living here is serene and welcoming. It was completed in 1995, and is situated on freehold land.
This low-rise residential complex is rather spacious, with a minimum built-up arae of 1,500 sf. The maximum is 2,640 sf. These units typically have 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. However, some units are duplex units and have 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Units face either the landscaped gardens or the swimming pool. They are also all bright and airy, with natural breeze coming through on most days.
Facilities here in Villa Flora include squash courts, tennis courts, a games room, swimming pool, badminton hall, gymnasium, sauna, hair salon, laundrette, kindergarten, reading room, community hall, lounge, and 24 hour security with CCTV.
Villa Flora is easily accessible via the Spring Highway. It is close to 1 Utama, IKEA, The Curve, bus stops, schools, Apollo Medical Center, Masjid Sungai Penchala, Mutiara Damansara Recreational Park, the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club, banks, and shops.
On paper, Villa Flora seems like an excellent place to invest in. It is in a prestigious residential area of Kuala Lumpur that is close both the city, as well as the Damansara area. Which means that Villa Flora is close to pretty much everything a resident would ever want or need in terms of shopping, recreational, and entertainment aspects.
Villa Flora is also low-rise and low-density, meaning that it is an exclusive development. it is also resort-like, with well manicured gardens and a large pool.
However, the residents of Villa Flora are apparently rather annoyed with a recent rise in maintenance / sinking fund fees. This is because over the past few years, Villa Flora has been in the news and certain blogs for its questionable security.
A more reputable source of information comes from the Malay Mail, which reported in an article on March 15th, 2010 about the spate of daytime break-ins at TTDI, particularly in Villa Flora. It is not known whether this problem has been fixed. As a result, please be cautious when thinking about investing in a unit at Villa Flora.
