Sansiri is continuing its drive into the low-price end of the Phuket housing market with the launch of yet another project, dcondo Creek in Kathu, while Phanason, which has already completed or part-completed 11 projects in Phuket, will launch its twelfth, Phanason Grand Ville in Baan Bangjo.
The dcondo design concept is inspired “by the creek running through the mountain”, with a 100-metre swimming pool at the heart of the development’s landscape surrounded by greenery, “providing a relaxing and harmonious living space”.
Dcondo Creek was due to open for sales from today (June 1) to Sunday, but if past performance is anything to go by, all 806 units are likely to be reserved on the first day.
The project is located on 8.5 rai, on Wichit Songkram Rd, near Kathu. It will have four eight-storey buildings with a total of 806 units and two room types – 750 studio units and 56 two-bedroom units.
The studio units are 29 square metres in area, with a balcony, kitchen area and bathroom. The two-bedroom units are 60 square metres with a dining area, ensuite master bedroom, living room and a private balcony.
Suriya Wannabuit, executive vice president, said, “We are confident that the design will receive strong feedback.”
dcondo Creek will also have a clubhouse with fitness facilities, a garden, the 100-metre pool and a security system equipped with 24-hour CCTV and key card access.
Prices run from B1.1 million to B2.5 million. Construction is scheduled to begin in October
Buyers who reserve and sign a contract on June 1-3 will be able to spread the down payment across installments of just B999 baht a month.
Phanason Grand Ville also opens for presales today, with a variety of houses on offer, starting at B1.8 million.
Configurations include three types of single-floor houses, detached and semi-detached, and five types of two-floor detached or semi-detached homes. Inside space will range from 60 to 175 square meters, and gardens will range from 36 to 54 square wah (144 to 216 square metres).
Reservation deposits are being kept low – just B5,000 for the cheapest homes.
Phanason appears to be spreading its net wide, not targeting only the Thai market but also “foreign investors such as Russian, British, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, China, etc. who are interested in property business, trade, and investment”.
The company also recommends the project for retired people who “need to find shelter and privacy”.
