House Tour: Jungle-view bungalow in Bukit Timah

The definition of a million-dollar view for a typical house hunter would be a city skyline or ocean view. But for the owner of this bungalow off Eng Neo Avenue, his winning view is the jungle right next to his home.

The retired art gallerist had actually been eyeing this plot of land for many years. He had been living several houses away, and when the land came on the market, he immediately snapped it up.

“The jungle has special significance to me. I grew up in a kampong in Punggol, right next to greenery,” he says, “and now, I’ve bought a piece of land with the jungle as a bonus.”
