Making A Statement
Luxury living inspired by world peace, racial and spiritual diversity
Issue: Jun 2010
SASTRA is located in the development enclave of Taman U-Thant, where luxury living is at its most prestigious
Inspired by U-Thant’s vision of world peace, racial and spiritual diversity, SASTRA brings you luxury living in a harmonious and pleasant community. The exclusive low-rise housing is nestled in Taman U-Thant, a prestigious diplomatic enclave named in honour of the remarkable Burmese who rose to international acclaim for his peacekeeping efforts while serving as the Secretary General of the United Nations from 1962-71.
“We wanted SASTRA to play a pivotal role in bringing communities together where those who dwell in it can find tranquility away from their hectic schedules. SASTRA is also a place where racial and spiritual diversity can truly be celebrated,” says Catherine Yao, Vice President, Design and Development, Capitaland Commercial.
Prime land of peace
Here in the midst of prominent embassies, consulates and high commissions, SASTRA offers a unique residential experience built on prime freehold land.
The neighbourhood of Taman U-Thant comprises stately bungalows and low-density condominiums, home to a diverse community made up of expatriates, many of whom are diplomats and affluent local families.
At SASTRA you get the winning combination of a private retreat and sanctuary of sorts in the heart of the city.
Living in SASTRA not only grants you a respite from hectic work schedules, it puts you in the thick of city action
Mature trees in every shade of green whisper a warm welcome as you head home each day. Cascading foliage amidst lush tropical surroundings greets you as you enter the grand porch. The welcoming scene continues and extends to the glorious outdoor spaces where award-winning landscape architect Karl W Princic paints his magic onto the canvas of the land.
Being just about two kilometers east of Kuala Lumpur City Centre also puts you in the thick of action, if that is what revitalises you. Living in SASTRA means you are just minutes away from the shopping strip and a myriad of world class restaurants. These are on top of the various facilities and support services that cater to the needs of this global village such as international schools, golf courses, specialty grocers, sports and fitness centres and healthcare services, which are all within minutes’ reach.
Exclusivity and security are prime concerns at SASTRA
Exclusivity at SASTRA extends beyond its prime location.
Only 126 units can be found within a 10-storey block. You can choose from the three and four-bedroom courtyard suites, the four-bedroom sky villas and premiere sky villas, or the five-bedroom poolside villas. Every unit has a lift that opens straight to its private courtyard.
Sky villas and some courtyard villas come with a dip pool, for those who prefer to relax in the privacy of their own home. Most of the units are also oriented inwards, allowing them to face an intimate garden, which incorporates the 50-metre aquatic recreation pool.
As you enter your sanctuary, you will be glad to know that SASTRA is a gated community protected by cutting edge security systems including an intricate network of CCTV cameras and access card entry to the car park and lift lobbies.
A Homely Retreat everyday
SASTRA’s myriad of recreational facilities offers a homely retreat everyday
Once you are home, there is no lack of facilities to help you and recharge. Whether you choose to unwind at the swimming pool, sauna, gymnasium, jacuzzi or just enjoy the serenity of the landscaped gardens, you will indeed be spoilt for choice.
Luxurious in every way
Every apartment in SASTRA has efficient and functional layout and comes with quality furnishings and fittings
Inside the spacious apartments, the efficient layout of the living spaces makes it easy for you to decorate your home the way you like it without compromising on luxury and style.
At SASTRA, the living rooms integrate seamlessly with the dining areas and the dry kitchens. All wet and dry kitchens come fully appointed with modern fittings and equipment such as quality cabinets, solid surface worktop, cooker hob and hood as well as a refrigerator.
Wherever possible, natural ventilation and lighting embody all the finest elements of the SASTRA lifestyle.
Every woman’s dream - spacious wardrobes
In SASTRA, each bedroom is also designed with ample space for a multitude of activities to meet the needs of your family.
SASTRA provides a relaxed setting with natural timber flooring and built-in wardrobes in every room or, if you desire, a connecting walk-in wardrobe. Designer fittings, such as taps and switches, blend in with top of the range porcelain titles and imported marble feature walls present the finer things in life.
Green efforts within make SASTRA and the world a better place to live in
Caring for Mother Earth
SASTRA also believes in the power to effect positive change and help make the world a better place to live in.
Therefore, respect for the environment is a priority at SASTRA. Besides the lush greenery, individual courtyards provide the perfect place for cultivating private gardens, which in turn will help to reduce the ambient temperature.
Sunscreens and fins on the façade are designed to further lessen heat transmission indoors. Solar panels that supplement the power supply to common areas and rainwater harvesting are additional measures to create a sustainable lifestyle and result in savings in maintenance expenditure.
When SASTRA is completed, the development will bring Taman U-Thant to new heights!
