E&O Property Development Bhd (E&O) is offering exclusive luxury seafront living with its latest launch, Villas By-The-Sea within Seri Tanjung Pinang on Penang Island.
Launched on 15 December 2007, Villas By-The-Sea is the result of a joint-venture between E&O Property, Al Salam Bank of Bahrain and CIMB-Mapletree Real Estate Fund 1 Sdn Bhd.
Stretching over 15 acres of freehold land, with 750 metres of sea frontage, it is one of Penang Island’s largest seafront developments. The project is located minutes’ drive from Gurney Drive, Penang’s premier seafront promenade which is lined with restaurants, shops and recreational areas.
The exclusive villas with Caribbean-inspired architecture are priced from RM2.75 million to RM7.5 million and scheduled for completion in mid 2009.
There are three different types of villas on offer: Martinique, Abrezza and Skye stretching over 15 acres of freehold land, with a total of 750 metres of frontage facing the Andaman Sea and Straits of Malacca, offering discerning buyers clear views of the sea.
While the Martinique villas are located right by the sea, the Abrezza and Skye villas are located just beyond with equally inviting views. All three types of villas have unique layouts that encourage interaction between the indoor and the outdoor with generous windows, high ceilings, spacious terraces and verandas adding to the charm and allure of the villas.
Modelled after the Caribbean-style plantation mansions, the Martinique two-storey villas comprise five plus one room with built-up areas from 9,043 sqf. These villas offer sea frontage of up to 24 metres, with spectacular views of the sea from the pavilion, bedrooms and dining room. The spacious guest pavilion, another unique feature, gives homeowners unobstructed views of the pool, garden and sea.
Abrezza three-storey villas comprise six plus one rooms with built-up areas of 5,332 sqf and are designed with balconies, patios and terraces wrapping the villa on all four sides. The grand living room is designed for entertainment, while the master bedroom has a spacious hotel style master bathroom with a long bath and equipped with premium Kohler sanitary fittings.
The three-storey Skye villas comprise five plus one bedrooms with built-up areas of 5,193 sqf for intermediate units and 5,283 sqf for corner units. The unique façade creates airiness with tall windows and generous double-volume living spaces. The dining area opens out into the garden, ideal for alfresco dining while a suspended walkway on the third floor overlooks the family room.
Reflecting the Caribbean theme, the living/dining and dry kitchen areas of all the villas are laid with imported Italian Botticino marble while the luxurious bedrooms and guestrooms are covered with high-end Burmese teak flooring.
All rooms come with en-suite bathrooms, with the master bedroom covered in Arabescarto marble. The kitchen is equipped with a modern kitchen cabinet system and state-of-the-art appliances including an open concept dining and living area perfect for intimate parties and grand functions.
The exquisite villas are part of Phase 1 of Seri Tanjung Pinang conceptualised by renowned architectural firm Wimberly Allison Tong & Goo, and designed by local architect GDP whose portfolio includes Hampshire Park and The Ascott in KL and the restoration of the Eastern & Oriental (E&O) Hotel on Penang Island.
