Guess who is behind the DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT?
Almost three and a half decades in the business; just shy of 300 residential properties nationwide under their belt (plus a few beyond these shores) with builds catering to the tastes and preferences of foreign customers; winner of multiple major accolades including the exalted Commendation of Excellence award by Asia Pacific Commercial Real Estate; oh, and listed on the Stock Exchange of Thailand. It’s little wonder that Sansiri is such a familiar, respected and trusted name throughout the Kingdom.
In the last handful of years alone, the Land of Smiles’ ruling real estate brand launched as many condominiums in Chiang Mai and in the midst, their premier and simply stunning single-detached house project, Setthasiri San Sai. With the final phase of construction sewn up in 2015, the moo baan strikes a flawless balance between expressions of wistful Northern Thai architecture and elements of upscale modernity according the height of exclusive, untroubled country living.
Check out the LOCATION!
Lying inside the Nong Chom area of its namesake district, Setthasiri Sansai is spread over 53 rai (nearly 8.5 hectares) of land through which the “calming flow” of the picturesque Mae Khao stream winds its way and vantage points aplenty lend fine views towards Chiang Mai’s mountainous Doi Suthep-Pui National Park. So while the moo baan affords a supremely serene sanctum and a deliciously far-flung feel, its whereabouts on the Chiang Mai-Phrao Road means accessing the city is an absolute cinch.
Literally a two minute straight run (or no more than 20 as a pedestrian) from the gated development are a heap of retail and foraging options where even the most cultured of residents would want for precious little. Kicking off with a string of assorted mom-and-pop shophouses dispensing cooked-to-order local eats and, bearing rock-bottom price tags, wearables and virtually every kind of household product known to man! Not to mention standing shoulder to shoulder with Kad Ruamchok wet market and its irresistibly fresh goods. Right alongside and opened not six months ago, there’s Ruamchok Mallcomprising its very own supermarket and in-house café. In front, the spacious International Food Court by Alpina serving up not just a broad array of domestic as well as cosmopolitan flavours, but grown-up beverages from its corner bar. Next door again, the still lightly patronised Meechok Plaza starring a branch of Chiang Mai’s indigenous and premium food store, Rimping, several pan-Asian bistros and, gathering two evenings a week, a throng of street food vendors. And as if all that wasn’t enough, directly opposite the shopping precinct is the mighty Tesco Lotus Ruamchoke hypermarket carrying no end of budget-friendly everyday groceries and homewares.
To venture into town, not three minutes further down Highway 1001 is Mae Jo Junction which connects with the Super Highway. From the intersection, it’s 60 seconds to the largest mall in the region, CentralFestival, and continuing onward for a couple more minutes for access to the Chiang Mai Business Park; or, skirting the ‘Old City’, five minutes to reach Maya Lifestyle Shopping Centre and the Nimmanhaemin neighbourhood – no matter which destination, the drive there from Baan Setthasiri San Sai takes 10 to 15 minutes tops!

No less meritorious and mere steps away, the positively ravishing and perpetually glistening open-air saltwater swimming pool; to say nothing of the poolside gym kitted out with up-to-the-minute fitness and exercise apparatus, and the painstakingly-kept sweeping community garden park.
