All set to run through the DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT of Siritara Condos?
Masterminded by Chiang Mai’s Arunawa Company, the now middle-aged seven-floored Siritara Condo first came onto the scene at the tail-end of 2005 before being ready for residential action some decade ago; followed, in a similar construction time frame and occupiable since the last quarter of ’11, by the so-designated Silver and Gold eight-storey buildings of the quite a bit more evolved Grand Siritara Condo.
Both projects, but especially the Grand Siritara’s octagonally figured interlinked condominiums, are distinctively architected with reinforced double thick internal walls for superior sound and thermal insulation. Boosted by all-round A1 quality and, not unexpectedly, consistent praise-heaping reviews from residents past and present!
WHEREABOUTS balancing the quiet life with handy access to more fast and furious habitats!
Lying low on an utterly unbusy soi [lane] off the southern section of the Somphot Chiang Mai 700 Pi Road beyond town, the two properties are sat next door to one another with Siritara on one and a quarter rai of land and Grand Siritara on a coupla rai. Offering not only a seriously chilled spot with abundant natural greenery in all directions, but many of the condo units look west so their live-in owners or tenants wake to dandy rolling views of the temple-capped Doi Kham and Doi Suthep mountains each and every morning!
While that particular stretch of the Inner Ring Road (between Mae Hia Saman-Samakkee and Ubosod Waree-Pratan junctions) still can’t claim a respectable show of public transport, it is developing little by little and already turning into south Chiang Mai’s prime grazing strip! Why, just a three to four minute hoof down the main drag from the Siritara Condos, on the way east to Big C Supercentre hypermarket or Makro cash and carry on the Hang Dong Road one klick away, a trio of top-notch feeding and beveraging joints; Rose’s Roadhouse & New York Style Pizza, The Yellow Pug craft beer bar slash bottle shop as well as Daddy’s Antique café and restaurant.
Rather at the opposite end of Highway 3029 and narrowly more than a quarter of an hour on foot (or a few minute’s spin) from the condos is Canal Road. Stopping place for rows of shophouses serving up budget-priced eats, threads and household wares; the ever buzzing and locally trodden Mae Hia market to forage for fresh daily produce; an unpretentious food court plus out front Border Run catering truck supplying melt-in-the-mouth homemade Mexican burritos, nachos and sides; Tesco Lotus Express mini-supermarket for everyday basics; and neighbouring Mali Place community mall complete with Rimping Grocery’s cut-above weekly provisions, imported goodies and in-house dining at the Chef’s Table bistro.
All the AMENITIES that modern living demands!
Both Siritara Condos feature security guards on site right around the clock, a CCTV system keeping common areas under surveillance and building admittance controlled by electronic keycard. To say nothing of the copious count of street-level parking bays on the premises not least the one-to-one car to condo unit allocation at Grand Siritara.
Inside each of the duo of condominiums, a communal lobby (including a real roomy double-height ceilinged lounge within Grand Siritara’s Gold building); officed juristic person working an 8:30AM to 5:30PM slot Monday to Sunday; twin passenger lifts [elevators]; and WiFi coverage throughout at no extra charge (or else a speedier and unshared broadband subscription for getting online in unit can be ordered through the Internet Service Provider 3BB).
And to finish, the added leisure facilities at Grand Siritara of a 111 square metre healthily geared indoor gym together with a comparably proportioned and centrally positioned 14.5 by 7 metre open-air swimming pool!
Now let’s delve into the TYPES, LAYOUT & SPEC OF UNITS at Siritara Condos!
Accounting for 68 units, Siritara Condo accommodates a mingle of studio, 1 and 2 bed pads variously sized from 37 to 124 sq m with a half-dozen different room designs. Whereas Grand Siritara’s 79 uniquely shaped semi-corner condos come in either Modern or Classic Lanna [Northern Thai] styles
and, numbering just three to eight units per floor, enjoy far more than normal amounts of useable space; heck, even the teensiest 1 bed, 1 bath unit weighs in at 53 sq m with the 2 bed, 2 bath Emerald and duplex Platinum Suites kicking off at 114 sq m, and the 3 bed, 3 bath Grand Suites a pretty huge 175 sq m spread over two floors!
Across the board, condo interiors are air-conditioned and presented in an open-plan living/dining/fitted kitchen format with whichever of a single (up to six metres in width) or dual private balcony. Nine out of ten times available fully furnished and superbly appointed with contemporary comforts and conveniences.
