    Do you have a rough price estimation and smallest floor area for a 3 bedded?

    The smallest 3 bedder is 1055 sqft. Based on the latest transacted price from URA website, it's selling at S$853k which rounds to about S$809 psf.

    I thought it should be better than Fontaine Parry @ Poh Huat Road West and this [email protected] Sandilands which are quite deep right into those Landed areas where you could hardly see the main road not to mention bus-stop?

    Yes, compared to Fontaine Perry, Florentine is slightly better. But the prices still don't justify the location.

    Btw, Fontaine seems slightly better in terms of design and layout.

    Default The Florentine

    The Florentine is definitely better than Fountain Parry cos the maintenance fee is lower as the private is taken out of the equations. THe landscape is no doubt very good - but the question remains who has the time to view these landscapes everyday?

    The Florentine is cheaper than Fountain Parry and more accessible in terms of main roads and eatery.

    Agreed with the statement above. Fontaine is quite expensive due to the private lift + the lift eats into areas of the living room. The private lift does not allow for direct access to the facilities - one needs to take the lift all the way down to the basement carpark and walk up to the facilities areas.

    My husband prefers The Florentine better as it is smaller and more exclusive.

    Thanks for highlighting and pointing out their differences.

    I noticed also that The Florentine has a long bath that most apartments and condos nowsaday don't provide. They only give what is call a sunken bath. We feel it's quite dangerous as the floor of this sunken bath is rough and it's a step down from the ground level. However, I'm not really sure how substantial will it be to maintain this long bath...
