South Forbes Golf City's Chateaux De Paris

Manila, Philippines - Now let’s get down to the bottom of things. What do people really look for when choosing a place where they could build their home? In recent surveys, people choose to live in gated communities where they can build a home and raise their children. It would be ideal if that community is near or in short transit distance to school and work and a commercial center. And lately, people have been moving south of Metro Manila to get away from all the madness intrinsic in city life.

Adding things up, there is that place where families, even single people, can live a complete life -- South Forbes Golf City, the country’s largest fully-integrated and all-themed resort city at the forefront of the Metro Sta. Rosa – Tagaytay corridor, and recipient of the Best Community Development by the 2007 CNBC International Property Awards, the world’s most prestigious property awards programme, and, recently, the Highly Commended Award for Best Development by the 2010 Bloomberg Asia-Pacific Residential Award.

“While people have different preferences on where and how they want to live, there are common denominators that we look for, study, and implement so that their preferences and needs are met and answered,” said Cathay Land president Jeffrey Ng. “South Forbes answers all these preferences and much more.”

Inner Peace. Gated communities are much safer than beyond it. For one, there is no through traffic which makes the neighborhood safer for children.

Following the principles of new urbanism, South Forbes is designed to be compact and walkable, hence, pedestrian friendly. Sidewalks are wide to allow more people to take to walking than riding a car. This way, parents will hardly worry about the safety of their children.

The youth of the Mediterranean Villas, the Mansions, and Scandia Suites can walk within 5 minutes to the Learning Links Academy of Sta. Rosa for their primary and secondary education. Those of Châteaux de Paris, Miami, and San Diego Homes share the same distance to the South Forbes City Colleges for higher education. Of course, at the middle of it all is the City Center, South Forbes retail, entertainment, and dining hub, surrounded along its circumference by the South Boulevard Commercial Strip and Rodeo Drive for more shops. From here, the Cyberpark is only a few minutes’ walk.

House Options. Gated communities add a touch of distinction. Homeowners will feel that they are a part of a community – an idealized small town where everyone knows and cares about each other.

South Forbes’ Residential Cluster of internationally-themed neighborhoods and condominiums incorporates a modern twist to traditional architectural designs and lifestyles unique to a featured city.

“Through a design concept called contained diversity, our themed enclaves maintains its individual charm yet collectively add color to the whole development without it looking like a theme park,” said Ng. “We have the quaint Mediterranean Villas, warm San Diego Homes, regal Châteaux de Paris, sun-drenched Miami, cozy Bali Mansions, serene Tokyo Mansions, tropical Phuket Mansions, breathtaking Nirwana Bali, and soaring Sentosa Heights.”

Condominium projects include the twin-tower Scandia Suites, a take-off on modern Scandinavian design, appeals to the active business executive who wants a stylish unit that is low in up-keep and the fairway-fronting Golf View Terraces for those who want a pad with coveted fairway views.
