Picture a home that’s resort-like in all its luxuriant greenery, yet fully integrated with smart technology and eco-friendly features – where nature coexists with technology in harmony. This would be the ideal abode for the urbanite looking for a sanctuary to balance out his or her busy work life, especially since it’s just a 5-minute walk away from Lakeside MRT station.
Yes, it’s possible to find such a home in Singapore. Welcome to Lake Grande, a slice of paradise right in the heart of the vibrant Jurong Lake District.
At Lake Grande, residents can look forward to what property developer MCL Land coins “smart eco-living”. This lifestyle combines a natural environment, smart technology, wellness-focused facilities and green features all in the same place. Living well – and responsibly – has never been easier.
Here’s a look at what your resort home at Lake Grande would be like.
Located within the lush Jurong Lake District, Lake Grande is where you can find tranquillity just minutes away from the bustling Jurong commercial hub.
Alongside luscious views of the beautiful surrounding landscape, residents get plenty of space to stay healthy and balanced, so coming home every day feels like a holiday.
Fittingly for its lakeside location, Lake Grande is dotted with cascading water features that will soothe busy urbanites, making it easy to disconnect from city life. Immerse yourself in a sea of blue at The Aquarium, an aquatic-themed area with a 50m Lap Pool, resort-style wooden Poolside Sun Deck, an Aquatic Floating Lounge and even mini-aquariums.
After a long day at work, get some much-needed downtime at the many dedicated relaxation areas around the development. The elevated Rest Haven is the perfect hideaway, complete with a nature trail surrounded by cogon grass and firefly-like lights, as well as a Wi-Fi pavilion for work, study or leisure.
Alternatively, you can curl up in the Wellness Lounge with a good book, chill out at the 45° Cabana which overlooks a Reflective Water Feature, practise yoga at the Wellness Lawn, or even stargaze in the Sunset Chill-Out Deck. The possibilities are endless.
For a real treat, head to one of the four Spa Villas just off the main pool. Each Spa Villa comes with its own individually-partitioned spa pool, the perfect spot for some quiet me-time.
With a multitude of facilities available at Lake Grande, there is no lack of wholesome activities to enjoy, either by yourself or with family and friends.
Those looking for a good workout can swim at the 50m Lap Pool or head to the dedicated Fit Zone where most of the condominium’s fitness features are clustered. Whether it’s a cardio session in the great outdoors, a workout at the Gymnasium and Exercise Studio, an intensive tennis session or a slow jog along the Jogging Trail, you’ll find your fitness needs fulfilled right at home.
To complement your active lifestyle, eat healthy with good company at the Forest Dining Pavilion, which caters to different cooking styles – barbeque, teppanyaki and an Italian Cut Bar. Complete with alfresco seating, this communal dining zone is a great place for aspiring chefs to whip up a feast and to gather friends and family for a good meal.
At the dedicated Family Fun area, there are never-ending activities for the kids too. The little ones can have a splashing good time at the fun Kids’ Play Pool, find their way out of the Maze Garden and even have a Water Foot Massage with the whole family.
Cutting-edge smart technology is seamlessly integrated both inside and outside the home, adding to the convenience of living in a condominium.
Your experience with smart technology starts right at the entrance. The biometric lock uses your fingerprint as the “key” to unlocking the door – providing ultimate home security and convenience. For added peace of mind, each unit also comes equipped with a real-time video surveillance camera to monitor what goes on at home while you’re away.
Thanks to a smart home solution that can be accessed on the go, living at Lake Grande is effortlessly simple and eco-friendly. You’ll be able to control home appliances such as air-conditioning and monitor your home energy consumption*, even while you’re outside. This means more efficient usage of utilities and less wastage – which, in the long run, is good for the Earth and your bank account.
To cater to the diverse needs of each resident, the smart home infrastructure allows for as much customisation as you like, such as adding on automation for lighting, curtains, home entertainment system and many more.
Outside the home, booking facilities is just as easy as enjoying them. Forget about going down to the clubhouse to book amenities in person – at Lake Grande, you can book facilities on the go. A handy mobile app tracks availability and allows you to book and plan your activities with just a few taps.
With these conveniences in place, you won’t have to worry about forgetting your house keys or about the safety of your family when you’re away from home. Let technology do its job and set your mind at ease.
Around the grounds of Lake Grande, you’ll find thoughtful green features that enhance the environment and delight eco-conscious residents.
These include discreet touches like smart motion-sensor corridor lighting and a pneumatic waste disposal system. The former ensures efficient power consumption and a smaller carbon footprint, while the latter automates waste disposal via underground pipes into a sealed container. This waste collection process solves environmental and sanitary issues associated with open refuse collection methods, keeping the immediate environment clean and green for all to enjoy.
Additional cool features seamlessly synergise your active lifestyle with environmental consciousness. Lake Grande’s outdoor fitness equipment actually harness kinetic energy from your workout to charge your mobile device at the same time, and there’s an environmentally friendly bicycle-sharing facility for an enjoyable form of transport around the lovely Jurong Lake Gardens.
Even unit layouts, finishes and fittings are carefully thought through – right down to the details. Smart and functional layouts ensure efficient energy consumption; and units are fitted by renowned brands like Hansgrohe, Kohler, Electrolux, Bosch and Fisher & Paykel.
Lake Grande is a resort-style home that scores high on the technology, safety and environmental fronts. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more ideal home.
