Setia stamps its signature of sustainability, liveability and exclusivity in Penang Island


Casa Rica is perched on the highest point in Setia Greens, offering a panoramic vista of the surrounding green hills and cityscape.

10 DECEMBER, PENANG – Homebuyers seeking exclusive landed residences in the Penang island can now look forward to S P Setia Berhad’s recent launch. Located in Sungai Ara, Bayan Lepas, the new project is the final phase within Setia Greens, a 46.3-acre eco-township by Setia.

Named Casa Rica, which means “rich home” in Spanish, this 11-acre freehold enclave is envisioned to enhance lives in enriching experiences shared with loved ones.

The low-density project offers only a total of 60 units of two-storey and three-storey semi-detached homes, each with its own individual title. On the land-scarce Penang island, one of the most vibrant economic nexuses in the country, such spacious homes are few and far between.

Casa Rica’s semi-detached homes designed for multi-generational families offer four practical layouts with either 4+1 or 5+1 bedrooms.

Perched on the highest point in Setia Greens, residents here are also accorded a panoramic vista of the surrounding green hills and cityscape.

Sporting a Spanish architectural concept, residents and visitors will find themselves greeted by a statement-making archway before stepping into beautifully landscaped gardens and visually pleasing houses complete with Spanish-profile roof tiles, along with arched and bay windows.

“We are excited to bring the Spanish una forma de vivir (a way of life) right here in Setia Greens. Surrounded by Spanish-inspired gardens with a grand gazebo, opulent archways and an Azulejo patterned sculpture, we hope to create a dwelling where lives can be lived to the fullest, and many enchanting memories are formed,” said Divisional General Manager of S P Setia, Ricky Yeo.

With a total gross development value of RM130.3 million, units here are priced from RM1,896,000 to RM2,547,600 with built-ups ranging from 2,897 sq ft to 3,512 sq ft. Positioned at different levels of the terrain to form a picturesque silhouette, the semi-dees come with copious land areas between 3,627 sq ft and 10,742 sq ft.

Taking heed of the new normal lifestyle requiring flexibility and functional spaces, these multi generational homes offer four practical layouts with either 4+1 or 5+1 bedrooms. The three-storey types are each equipped with a built-in elevator. All units are designed with a wide frontage that enhances ventilation and lighting, a car porch that can accommodate three cars, a parcel box compartment, and a wide folding and sliding gate. In addition, roads around the neighbourhood are 40ft wide, allowing easy drive-ups.

Residents are greeted by an opulent archway before stepping into Casa Rica’s beautifully landscaped gardens.

As with all townships developed under the Setia brand, Casa Rica is enveloped in lush greenery Featuring a central park and two pocket gardens with an edu-playground for children, residents can enjoy times of relaxation, recreation and relationship bonding with family, friends and neighbours amidst nature’s embrace.
