10 Most Expensive Homes In Singapore

You may have, when younger and playfully imaginative, dreamt of living in a castle.

But as you grew older, you began to realise that living in a castle is impractical — especially in a space-deprived city like Singapore. Only the ultra-wealthy get to live in anything close to being called a castle.

Here are the 10 most expensive homes that are available on the Singapore market now. We’ve ranked them from expensive to ridiculously expensive because who are we kidding? Admiring them in pictures is as close as most of us will get to seeing them IRL.

10. Queen Astrid Park, Bukit Timah

Price on PropertyGuru: $60,000,000
Tenure type: Freehold

If you want to be above everyone else all the time, you may want to consider this house — supposing that you can afford it.

The house at Queen Astrid Park is elevated from its surroundings and has trees planted all around it so you can always have your privacy in your own home. You probably won’t be able to see much of the house from the street.

Maybe the house is too ‘small’ for you. The house also features a gazebo if you prefer the charms of the great outdoors.

9. Boulevard Vue

Price on PropertyGuru: $61,000,000
Tenure type: Freehold

You may not have expected a non-landed property in this list. Each unit occupies an entire level — which should justify its ridiculous price tag. You’ll even have private access to the rest of the building from 2 lifts.

The best part about the penthouse is that you can choose how you would like it designed and a team will help you with it.

8. Ladyhill Park, Bukit Timah

Price on PropertyGuru: $63,988,000
Tenure type: Freehold

Hidden behind a wall of greenery is another super-expensive modern home.

Just like most other houses at this price range, you have a personal swimming pool.

But what sets this apart is the huge basement garage that could house the owner’s supercars.

The rich seem to never have time to go catch a movie in the ‘squeezy’ cinemas. So this house also includes an in-house movie theatre.

7. Ewart Park, Bukit Timah

Source

Price on PropertyGuru: $61,000,000 – $65,000,000
Tenure type: Freehold

This property is probably one of the more modern-looking ones on the list. However, it’s not only modern-looking on the outside but on the inside as well.

The expansive property boasts a barbeque pit, a gymnasium room and a massive swimming pool that extends into the house.

Source

It also has a fully-fitted kitchen that even the finest chefs would desire. This may not be the biggest house in this list but who cares, it’s definitely one of the most aesthetic.

6. Ocean Drive, Sentosa Cove

Source

Price on PropertyGuru: $78,000,000 to $78,888,888

A list of expensive homes will without a doubt include Sentosa Cove’s Ocean Drive units.

Sentosa Cove is reserved only for the rich and famous — at least that’s what we learned in Monopoly Singapore Edition.

The only problem with living in Sentosa is that you’re living on a separate island. But when you’re that rich, time can be probably be ‘bought’.

5. Binjai Park, Bukit Timah

Source

Price on PropertyGuru: $83,800,000
Tenure type: Freehold

At first glance, the bungalow doesn’t seem that impressive. You can’t see much of it with the trees ‘guarding’ the compound.

However, you’ll understand the reason for the asking price when you find out how big the house really is.

The size of the property is around 70,000 square feet making it only slightly smaller than a soccer field.

You can literally fit all your uncle and aunties into the unused plot of land for a random post-CNY gathering — or just because you can.

4. Chancery Lane, Newton

Source

Price on PropertyGuru: $83,888,888
Tenure type: Freehold

Unlike the Binjai Park property, that occupied a vast expanse of land, this estate resembles more typical landed property at around 4,285 square feet.

That said, it is by far the most expensive house per square feet at $19,577 psf. By comparison, regular condominiums hover around $5,000 psf, which is still a hefty price to fork out.

The house comes equipped with an above ground swimming pool. From what can be seen, it’s nice enough to immediately move in without any renovations.

Source

The listing is probably more of a troll as we can’t see anyone buying such a small but expensive property. Can you?

3. Yarwood Avenue, Bukit Timah

Source

Price on PropertyGuru: $86,000,000
Tenure type: N/A

From the outside, this seems like a rather run-down property. However, do not be deceived by its outward appearance. The property is 69,500 square feet — second biggest on this list.

Oh did we mention that the grounds include a full-sized tennis court?

The property is huge, but if you think that the house is comparable, you’d be wrong. The house is actually one-story and not as extravagant as you’d think.

2. Leedon Road, Holland

Source

Price on PropertyGuru: $91,800,000
Tenure type: Freehold

Unfortunately, the listing for this property doesn’t have many details about where exactly it is.

However, what it shows is enough to help you understand why the property costs so much. Not only does it have a swimming pool – almost seems like a given at this point – it also has an area big enough for a futsal match.

I guess you could say this house is ‘goals’

1. Wallich Residence, Tanjong Pagar

If you thought that the most expensive home in this list was going to be a freehold landed property, you would be wrong.

Source

Price on PropertyGuru: $107,000,000
Tenure type: 99-year lease

The most expensive property you can purchase now is actually a penthouse at Wallich Residence with a 99-year lease.

The property is expensive for many reasons. One of which is that it is placed right at the heart of the Central Business District. At this price, you’ll also be paying for the interior space and view of the skyline.

Source

With a 21,000 square feet living space and a view from 60 floors up, you’ll literally feel on top of the world.

Singapore, the land of the rich

If you’ve read all the way to the end, you might have noticed a trend — many of the properties lie in the Bukit Timah area.

This could be why Bukit Timah is usually known as the rich man’s paradise.
