Travel can change people. For the couple who owns this home, nine months of travelling through Central and South America altered their priorities. “Before that, we were urban people. We fell in love with nature during our travels. So, we prioritised that over anything else,” says Deng Yingzhi, who is in the creative field.
When she and her husband felt it was time to move out of their BTO HDB flat, their search for a new property ended in this cluster house next to Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. “We were not looking for a home of this size,” she tells us, “but we were so impressed by the views. They’re something we didn’t expect to find here and we couldn’t stop thinking about that.” Every floor of the resale property looks out onto the lush nature reserve.
