21 September 2023 | BY

Loft HDB flats are one of the most elusive properties in Singapore, but did you know that they also make for great appreciating assets?


If you’re anything like most Singaporeans, chances are you’re all too familiar with HDB flats. Even if you haven’t lived in one, you at least know about the different room configurations, maybe even the executive models. 

Still, unless you’re one of the knowledgeable few, you probably don’t know much about the elusive loft HDB flats. What most don’t know is that these unique flats make for great appreciating assets, especially with most of them going for over a million dollars. While prices of these properties have been creeping upwards, here are 5 loft HDB flats on the market to invest in.

This 4-room premium loft HDB boasts a 5.4m-high living room ceiling which is almost double of a typical unit’s – the average HDB ceiling height is about 2.575 to 2.6m. This North-facing HDB unit also comes with a balcony that faces south which is said to be favourable in terms of Feng Shui.

Aside from that, this HDB is located in one of the most sought-after neighbourhoods in Singapore with a Sheng Shiong supermarket a mere 280 metres away. In addition,  the unit’s location is only a 10-minute walk to Queenstown MRT. To make things better, IKEA Alexandra and Queensway Shopping Centre are about a 5-minute drive away.
