Founded more than three decades ago and now widely regarded as Thailand’s leading property developer, the Sansiri name is synonymous with conscientiously and innovatively designed urban homes where every single detail is carefully considered without sacrificing aesthetic or function. Although entering the Chiang Mai condominium sector only in 2013, their local real estate footprint already comprises their eldest ‘Family’ member, dcondo campus resort along with the later dcondo sign and geographically adjacent dcondo nim while continuing to impress with the equally successful d’VIENG Santitham. A low-rise lifestyle development, d’VIENG Santitham’s characteristic and conspicuous architectural style oozes a captivating fusion of timeless Lanna [Northern Thai] beauty and modern-contemporary chic.
Outstandingly situated in the very midst of the traditionally Thai –and labyrinthine!- neighbourhood of Santitham fringed for the most part by the Super Highway and Changpuak Road, d’VIENG Santitham affords a palpable sense of seclusion and tranquil ambience within its walled exterior yet offers residents ready access to every conceivable convenience. Facing the main entrance of the complex is a terrific little Thai mom and pop eatery and, next door, a serviced wash shop; parades of shops, restaurants and assorted everyday amenities line the streets of the surrounding blocks enough to satisfy even the most demanding of routine needs. Among the highlights of the immediate and nearby environs is a branch of the deservedly popular coffee shop and social enterprise Akha Ama on Hussadhisawee Soi 3; scarcely a five minute leisurely stroll from the condo is the superb Siri Wattana/Thanin day market with its lively atmosphere and rich pickings of fresh produce and prepared food while for a larger selection of groceries (domestic and imported) as well as household goods, the Chotana branch of Tops Market is reachable in under 10 minutes on foot; a comparable distance away is Chang Phueak transport hub for public buses, minivans and songthaew serving an array of destinations throughout Chiang Mai province including to each of the neighbouring districts of Mae Rim, San Sai, Doi Saket, San Kamphaeng, Hang Dong and San Pa Tong. Similarly walkable in just 10 minutes from d’VIENG Santitham is the north west corner of the historic ‘Old City’ and the intersection with one of the municipality’s principal thoroughfares, Huay Kaew Road, from where the especially utilitarian Kad Suan Kaew shopping mall and preeminent private infirmary, Chiang Mai Ram Hospital, are but steps away while a further 10 minute jaunt brings you to Pratu Chang Phuak (or ’White Elephant Gate’) and the site of a fabulous nightly food market.
As befits such a highly acclaimed and award-winning brand as Sansiri, on-site facilities at d’VIENG Santitham are particularly commendable. Besides the ever-present security guards on duty at the barriered main entrance, video surveillance cameras are mounted in all common areas while access to the property and, via the double lifts (elevators), to individual floors is keycard-controlled; for extra comfort of mind, residents benefit from a juristic office which is staffed between the hours of 9AM and 6PM, seven days a week with a technician on standby 24/7. In addition to just short of 80 car bays with separate parking for motorbikes, the condo boasts a laundry room with coin-operated, self-service washing machines, a recycling zone for the disposal of paper, metal, glass and plastic waste products and, for quick and easy withdrawals, a Siam Commercial Bank cash machine. Each of the two residential buildings also incorporates a smartly provisioned communal lobby with comfortable seating arrangements. Complimentary WiFi is accessible in all shared areas of the property and a private, high-speed home broadband connection can be set up -at the resident’s own expense- through whichever of 3BB, AIS, CAT or Sinet Internet Service Providers.
Constructed on approximately 3 rai (almost half a hectare) of land, d’VIENG Santitham’s pair of 5-storey residential buildings (designated A and B) flank an attractively landscaped and meticulously groomed verdant tropical garden. At the heart of the outdoor space lies a striking centrepiece swimming pool with integrated jacuzzi though surprisingly devoid of an adjoining sun deck. At the far end of the pool stands a well-equipped and moderately sized fitness room with up-to-the-minute exercise apparatus while, overlooking the near side, an open Lanna styled wooden pavilion complete with a variety of water features.
Further safeguarding its residents, condo front doors are outfitted with a one-way peephole as well as a Samsung digital lock and every one of the 264 air-conditioned units in d’VIENG Santitham comes fully furnished. With near full height and width windows, interiors enjoy copious amounts of natural light and are invitingly appointed to a superior standard with gorgeous modern décor focussed on natural materials and corresponding Earth tones throughout.
Ranging in size from 29.98 to 30.36 sq m, studio units are laid out with an open-plan living/dining area, cleverly partitionable sleeping quarters, 1 bathroom, separate kitchen and, adjoining which, a humbly proportioned private balcony; with 37.40 to 37.65 sq m of habitable space, 1 bedroom units likewise enclose a combined living/dining area, 1 bathroom and separate kitchen leading to a small private balcony; measuring a generous 60 sq m, 2 bedroom units are presented with unified living/dining/kitchen space, contain as many bathrooms as well as a roomy private terrace.
Launched in June 2015, d’VIENG Santitham accommodates a cosmopolitan mix of occupants with a more or less equal divide of foreigners and Thai folk.
