Homes fit for royalty dazzle in Bangkok
Issue: Dec 2009
The Royal Residence is distinctively classy with its regal exterior and breathtaking views
The Royal Residence in Bangkok is aptly named. In this exclusive community, 79 private villas are decked out with resplendent interiors, each inspired by blending the very best of Oriental and Victorian architecture. Lush landscaping, picturesque views, world-class facilities and unrivalled amenities round off the exterior of this award-winning development.
A joint venture between Thai Charoen Corporation Group, a conglomerate owned by liquor tycoon Charoen Sirivadhanabhakdi, and CapitaLand, The Royal Residence is set to be the paragon of luxurious living.
Located on Kaset-Nawamin Road, in an area rapidly transforming into the next affluent residential hub in Bangkok, The Royal Residence is currently being developed by TCC Capital Land and will eventually boast detached houses spread out over more than 30 acres of land. With easy access to the CBD, expressways and main arterial roads, the development is part of the Nawamin City Master Plan. When completed, this township will effectively be self-contained, comprising the perfect blend of retail, commercial and residential elements.
No attention to detail was spared in the resplendent interior
The architecture of the development is eye-catching and awe-inspiring. The exterior design of the properties is inspired by a blend of Eastern and Western styles that surfaced in Thailand in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Then, under the reign of King Rama V, locals began mixing traditional Thai architecture with European influences to stunning effect. Numerous buildings erected at that time still stand, the most famous in Bangkok being the Chakri Maha Prasat Hall (part of the Royal Grand Palace), built in 1873 A.D. to commemorate the centenary of the Chakri Dynasty.
Each villa within The Royal Residence successfully recreates such a feeling of grandeur and distinction with its regal exterior and equally impressive interior. The very best architects, designers and consultants were brought on board to oversee the design and construction of each property. The result – six breathtaking Oriental Victorian house designs, all adorned with top-of-the-range fittings and finely crafted handmade detailing unique to The Royal Residence.
The size and layout of each villa varies (the usable area ranges from 445 to 892 sq m; the number of bedrooms ranges from three to five) to suit the needs of different customers. Upon confirmation of sale, the interior is carefully planned, designed and fitted-out in full consultation with the buyer; each and every villa will consequently be adapted to suit the needs of all buyers so that their perfect homes can be created.
However, no development can be the model of grand living without world-class facilities and amenities. In this respect, the developers seem to have outdone themselves. Within The Royal Residence premises is an approximate 3,000 sq m clubhouse that has a remarkable view of a lake as well as a dizzying number of facilities such as an infinity-edge swimming pool, spa pavilion, fitness centre, saunas, jacuzzis, a barbecue area, a playground and tennis courts.
Best in class
Entertain like a royal
It is this bold vision to create a perfect living environment coupled with the expertise and experience needed to execute such a large-scale project that has won developer TCC Capital Land numerous awards and accolades for The Royal Residence over the years. At the Asia Pacific Property Awards by CNBC Arabia held in July 2009, TCC Capital Land took its tally of awards for the development to four over the past three years. Past awards include Best Property (Thailand) and Best Interior Design (Thailand) at the CNBC International Property Awards in 2007 and Best Villa Development (Bangkok) at the Thailand Property Awards in 2008.
Industry experts are not the only ones heaping praise on this development. Dr. Settakarn Attakornpan, President of Pruksa Clinic and a happy owner, had this to say about the Royal Residence: “The architecture and the decorations are all unique and stunning. Each type of house has been designed with true understanding of art, culture and history.”
Dr Settakarn is also “very impressed with the flexibility of the house design which can be adapted to suit our needs. The developer really understands that different customers come with different needs. We did go for the best choice to choose The Royal Residence to be our home and precious inheritance for future generations.”
When completed, The Royal Residence will be the acme of design, form and function for the most discerning. For these select few, the future of modern living will also be steeped with exquisite history; a history fit for nobility.
