Spanning eight years, Chiang Mai’s native -and aptly named- Quality Condo Company’s real estate portfolio of distinction encompasses The Convention condo, the prize-winning The Resort condo, Mountain Front condo as well as its third and neighbouring development, Mountain View condominium. Ready for occupation at the beginning of 2011 and constructed to suit western tastes, the effectively managed and modern-contemporary designed Mountain View condo exemplifies exclusive, refined, comfortable living and, for its predominantly foreign inhabitants, offers a greenery-shrouded haven of tranquility away from the metropolitan hustle-and-bustle.
Nestled at the far end of a small and undisturbed soi [lane] on the north western outskirts of the city, Mountain View condo is situated almost within arm’s reach of the biologically rich, hilltribe-populated Doi Suthep-Pui National Park affording a readily accessible recreational arena for active types, nature lovers as well as an abundance of not-to-be-missed environmental and man-made attractions within its boundaries. For all its sense of splendid isolation, though, Mountain View condo is in fact expediently positioned just moments from Canal (Irrigation) Road with speedy and hassle-free connections to destinations such as the fashionable Nimman neighbourhood in scarcely more than five minutes, the historic and ever-captivating ‘Old City’ in only double the time, Northern Thailand’s biggest shopping mall, CentralFestival in less than a quarter of an hour and even Chiang Mai International Airport in just short of 30 minutes. Residents who hunger for a palatable selection of authentic regional Thai food in a chilled alfresco setting will delight to learn that immediately outside of the accessway to the property is the acclaimed Kaeng Ron Baan Suan restaurant. Hardly any less convenient is Sote Wellness Haven, a gorgeous traditional Lanna [Northern Thai] teak house amid delightful gardened grounds and an idyllic venue from which to disconnect completely from the world at the newly renovated café, indulge in local organic fare and artistry at the popular weekly “Sunday Hangout” or even join one of their regular personal growth events! To indulge in freshly baked artisan breads or a medley of home-produced delectable and wholesome edibles, take a trip by way of the nearby Rural Road to the community moo baan [Thai style housing estate] of Suan Pailom (translated from Thai as Bamboo Garden) where, every Saturday morning, the outstanding ‘Nana Jungle Market’ takes place in the wooded surroundings of the residential enclave. Sports enthusiasts will surely value that the municipal 700th Anniversary Stadium lies only a 30 minute walk (or five minute drive) from Mountain View condo; unveiled in 1995 to host the Southeast Asian Games and equally to mark seven centuries since Chiang Mai’s establishment in 1296, the multi-purpose centre (at the rear of which is the pretty Navamin reservoir) is home to an Olympic sized swimming pool, a couple of gyms, ice skating performances, drag racing, ping pong tables, a golfing green, shooting range, aerobic dance and taekwondo lessons, a running track, a football (soccer) field, a cycle velodrome along with badminton, basketball, tennis and volleyball courts.
From the vantage of their self-contained booth midway between Mountain View and Mountain Front, a number of vigilant and suitably dressed security professionals watch over the sole approach to the condominiums round-the-clock backed by closed-circuit video cameras installed throughout common areas and entry to the interior of Mountain View condo limited to those in possession of a personal-issue electronic keycard; for added presence of mind, friendly and obliging personnel are in attendance from 8:30AM to 5PM Monday to Saturday at the reception desk adjoining the smartly –and cosily- specified communal lobby. Flanking either side of the double lifts (elevators) are storage facilities for residents and a generously sized, well equipped fitness room with sauna. Beyond which, take a cooling plunge in the open-air swimming pool (partially under cover) or, around the water’s edge, lounge away the hours on any of the gathering of wooden sun recliners. As well as supporting a parking capacity enough for 23 cars (sheltered for the most part) and a separate section designated for motorbikes, complimentary shared WiFi is available on the premises or else residents can –albeit at their own expense- set up high-speed home broadband care of either 3BB or Sinet Internet Service Providers.
Although not a single-loaded building, just nine stylish rooms are distributed throughout each of floors two to seven of the 7-storey low-rise Mountain View condo with every single one of the 54 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom units boasting ceiling mounted air-conditioning and, from the one or more attached private balconies, commanding an impressive unimpeded outlook over the verdant forested foreground to the imposing Thanon Thong Chai mountains behind. Built to be “super-wide” and 3m in height with 8m window fronts to maximise the penetration of natural light, units are presented fully furnished, sumptuously –and invitingly- appointed using a premium class of fixtures, fittings and materials. Configured with a combined living/dining/kitchen layout for optimal use of habitable space, standard units vary between 41.53 and 50.04 sq m while front-facing deluxe corner rooms enjoy a spacious 55.44 or 66.00 sq m.
