Two bungalows on a freehold GCB in Caldecott Hill are for sale at S$62.8million

Caldecott Hill site for two GOOD Class Bungalows (GCBs) with freehold bungalows is listed at S$62.8M. Chan Kok Kwan was a diamond merchant of high society who bought the District 11 property in 1960. Three generations of the Chans have lived there.

Cushman & Wakefield is the company marketing the property. The two bungalows are located on a quiet cul de sac shared only with one other GCB.

The S$62.8m guide price is equivalent to about S$1,599 a square foot.

One bungalow was rebuilt around 2000. It has two floors and a large garden. The family occupies it. The second bungalow is a two-storey building with a pool and an attic. It’s rented.

Cushman & Wakefield stated that a low wall separates the two bungalows.

Shaun Poh is the executive director for capital markets at Cushman & Wakefield. He said that GCB sites in central locations, and especially large freehold plots above 35,000 sq ft, such as Joan Road, are rarely available on the market. They are sought-after by ultra-high net-worth individuals who want to build a dream home.

The Business Times stated that a two-storey bungalow in Caldecott Hill Estate on Andrew Road was purchased in June 2022 by Perennial Holdings’ chief executive Pua Seck Guian for S$33,000,000, or S$1,225 per square foot on a land size of almost 27,000 sq ft.

According to Huttons the Olive Road property, which was bought by the grandson who was the millionaire Weethiam Siew, was sold at a record price of S$50.2million in April 2022.

In 2020, an entity owned and controlled by Perennial’s chairman Kuok Khoon Hong purchased a 752,015 square foot plot of land located on Andrew Road, where the former Caldecott Broadcast Centre once stood. The purchase price was S$280.9million. Perennial proposed in 2022 to the Urban Redevelopment Authority that the land be developed into 15 99-year leasehold condominium blocks.

The plot dimensions of the Joan Road property for sale are approximately 95 m in depth and 42 m wide.

Future owners can explore the possibility of developing the property into one massive GCB or subdividing it into two separate plots. This option is subject to approval.
