Unique DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT – Learn More!
Among the biggest perks of condo living is only having to look after the inside of your own unit with care of the building and shared property covered under a Common Area Maintenance fee. Except at many of Chiang Mai’s more mature developments, residents don’t always get their money’s worth!
Cue Baan Suan Greenery Hill. The fifth residential project of local real estate legend Karnkanok (KKN) whose accomplishments also include The Trio, the various One Plus branded condos not to mention Jed Yod Greenery Hill and Rajapruek Greenery Hill. In spite of its completion almost a decade ago in January 2009, the modern style low-rise Baan Suan Greenery Hill has consistently sustained an unflawed track recordfor condo administration and upkeep to say nothing of its resident-friendly approach and ‘happy family’ ambience in a blissful backwater setting.
LOCATION that provides peace and quite!
Occupying a site of more than two rai (about a third of a hectare) close to the foot of the eye-catching Thanon Thong Chai mountains that loom over Chiang Mai, Baan Suan Greenery Hill is hidden away down a small soi [side street] upon which seldom a soul treads and little but bird song fills the air.
Right across the way from the condo and opened only a month or so ago, the Japanese Café by Hinoki. Or for a broader pick of coffee shops, garden variety Thai eateries as well as the Chiang Mai International Exhibition and Convention Centre, residents need only traipse the handful of minutes it takes to reach the Rural Road. Not quarter of an hour along the thoroughfare in the direction of the Doi Suthep-Pui National Park stands the uniquely offbeat moo baan [housing community] of Suan Pailom; home, from sun-up every Saturday, to one of Chiang Mai’s highlight farmers’ markets ‘Nana Jungle’ with its bountiful supply of yummy oven-fresh baked goodies and homespun foodstuffs. From there, meander through the rest of Chang Khian neighbourhood’s marvellously leafy lanes with their colourful day markets, undisturbed green oases and student stomping grounds before hitting up Huay Kaew Road and the nearby principal campus of Chiang Mai University (CMU).
While Baan Suan Greenery Hill basks in a sense of splendid seclusion, it’s conveniently located just 500m from the Canal Road stretch of the Outer Ring Road. In fact, it takes literally three minutes to drive to Chiang Mai’s top sports complex, the 700th Anniversary Stadium and the scenic Navamin lake; a touch more than double the time to arrive at Nimman and, with a good tail wind, still less than ten minutes to get to CentralFestival shopping mall!
Quality ON-SITE FACILITIES
Over and above the protection afforded by being situated in an out-of-the-way corner of Chiang Mai, a succession of lone uniformed security guards are deployed round-the-clock at the one-and-only entranceway into Baan Suan Greenery Hill. Beyond the barricade gates, sheltered street-level parking for 80 cars plus separate spots for motorbikes/push bicycles is provided and kept under observation –like every common-to-all part of the premises- by closed-circuit TV cameras with a fingerprint recognition system restricting access to the innards of the condo building. First stop indoors, the favourably proportioned, serviceably furnished and WiFi-equipped communal lobby. Immediately behind which, the office occupied from 9AM to 5PM Monday to Sunday by Baan Suan Greenery Hill’s ever affable and accommodating estate manager.
Steps away, passed the single passenger lift [elevator], lies the foliage-swathed outside space from which to revel in some serious ‘me’ time by availing of the property’s immaculately-kept leisure amenities. Taking pride of place is the 16×5.5m mosaic-tiled swimming pool bound by wood-panelled decking graced with several ground-hugging curved rattan loungers and edged by a string of verdant palm trees offering privacy and shade alike. Besides a sauna room and a smallish but sufficiently provisioned gym, there’s a smashing circular sunken jacuzzi for an alfresco therapeutic soak along with an ensemble of contemporary garden furniture for those moments of quiet introspection!
Various ROOM TYPES, LAYOUTS & SPECIFICATIONS
Consisting altogether of 78 residential units over five floors, the two main sections of Baan Suan Greenery Hill’s C-shaped condo building are interconnected by breezy single-loaded corridors. Putting it mildly, rooms are lavishly sized and even the tiniest studio unit offers 40 sq m of habitable space – that’s nothing short of 33% larger than the city average for its kind! Otherwise, 1, 2 and 3 bedroom units up to a gargantuan 297 sq m are present with the uppermost storeys home to a number of duplex penthouse suites.
Supplied fully furnished and air-conditioned with 2.8m high ceiling, wide private terrace and hard-wired internet through whichever of 3BB, CAT or Sinet (extra charges apply), units enjoy an open-plan living/dining/kitchen layout, appointed with comfort in mind and often finished to a highly luxurious standard. And now for the not so good news: Baan Suan Greenery Hill condo achieved its 49% foreign-owned quotaright at the outset. Re-sale units from existing non-Thai owners do crop up now and again but, in truth, units are usually only available to rent.
