This unique address is one of the best places to live in KL


A distinct residence in Kuchai Lama will elevate the popular suburb – in more ways than one! 

An over of KL city

There are always different dimensions when discussing the best places to live in. Different buyers will have different priorities and preferences. But when all is said and done, the conversation will invariably turn to affordability. House prices will always be one of the main deal clinchers or breakers unless you have a bottomless pocket and an unlimited budget! 

However, there is more to house selection than meets the eye.  If you want the best bang for your buck, money is not the only reason to buy a house. While it’s easy to grade the “best” address for a certain location or area based on tangible monetary factors such as prices and value, there are other vital intangibles to consider too. 

Each neighbourhood has its own attractive qualities and uniqueness. For example, when you are living and working in Klang Valley, accessibility is one of the most essential elements in winning the hearts of Malaysian homebuyers.

One such area is Kuchai Lama, a location that ticks all the right boxes for homebuyers, especially when it comes to accessibility. An upcoming development in the vicinity is M Oscar by award-winning property developer Mah Sing. Let’s check out what makes this area one of Kuala Lumpur’s best kept secrets:

1. Strategic accessibility

No matter how modern or slick a residential offering is, it is not complete without its surrounding developments. This is especially true if you’re living in Klang Valley, in which strategic interconnectivity between urban areas, neighbourhoods and amenities play a vital feature in our everyday lives. 

M Oscar is situated off Kuchai Lama and surrounded by matured and established suburbs such as Happy Garden, Sri Petaling, Bukit Jalil, and Desa Petaling. It is only 7km away from Mid Valley City and 13km from KL City Centre, and also within easy reach of Petaling Jaya, Subang and Cheras. The place can be accessed via major highways including the Maju Expressway (MEX), Shah Alam Expressway (Kesas), New Pantai Expressway (NPE), Federal Highway and KL-Seremban Expressway. There are also surrounding amenities such as the NSK Supermarket which is just a 5-minute drive away. If that is not the epitome of strategic location, then what is?

2. Public transportation

Even if you have a few cars and motorbikes in your garage, chances are that you will still need public transportation to complement your travelling requirements. What if you need to attend an emergency meeting and the traffic is bad? What if you want to buy that special birthday present for a loved one but can’t find parking? What if there are road blocks on a public holiday that makes it impossible to reach your dinner date on time? 

Those are only some of the special cases that make public transportation an indispensable aspect of city living. M Oscar is not lacking in this department either. The Taman Naga Emas Mass Rapid Transit 2 (MRT 2) station that is under construction will be just 800m away from M Oscar, complete with shuttle services. You can really move around without headache and hassle!

3. Food galore!

Other than accessibility, nothing else grabs a local homebuyer’s attention than the food available within the property’s vicinity. If you live in a beautiful mansion but find it hard to get your regular fix of roti canai, teh tarik, fish head curry, nasi lemak, café mocha, durian, mee rebus, curry laksa, hokkien mee, rojak, ABC, cendol and other must-have delicacies, what’s the point? You might be missing out on too much fun.

Many food-loving homebuyers nowadays place huge importance on an area’s proximity to popular food outlets. If you decide to live in M Oscar, there is a plethora of food options to whet your appetite such as popular fast food franchises, 24-hour mamak restaurants, hip cafes, local hawkers and restaurants such as Snowflake Taiwanese Dessert Secrets, Star Village, Golden Sun Club Seafood Restaurant, Sweet Hut, Chi Hao Dian Dim Sum Yum Cha, Yap Hup Kee Palace, Fayas Curry House, Radix Fried Chicken, Loving Hut Café and Norrizan Bakers. Are you hungry yet?

4. Freehold value

Many homebuyers today are very selective when buying freehold and leasehold properties. There are pros and cons for both types of properties, but freehold properties are often valued higher than leasehold properties, although this would depend on other factors as well. A freehold property gives you the right to ownership of a property forever.

In this case, M Oscar’s freehold residence has a distinct advantage over other similar leasehold properties in the Kuchai Lama and other nearby areas. This gives you a long term assurance of your property’s ownership.

5. Luxury you can afford


Well, at the end of the day, you can’t avoid the issue of price. After all, you’re spending your hard-earned cash for a dream house. After taking into consideration other intangible factors, it is only right that you take your time to find a house that ultimately fits your budget.

If you’re looking to buy a property in Kuchai Lama area, M Oscar would certainly fit the bill because it offers various unit types of 708 sqft (2 bedrooms), 895 sqft (3 bedrooms), 1096 sqft (4 bedrooms) and 1200 sqft (dual keys), starting from RM428,000.

The project comprises two main blocks separated by a 2.7acre facility deck and is elevated 100m above sea level with a strategic north-south orientation. It integrates 3 key features into its design and ambiance – canyons, stars and water. These features are highlighted in the form of the grand double-volume entrance statement, star-lit podium deck and meandering river streams.
