This high-floor, south-facing unit commands breathtaking panoramas of the park, expressway, and Straits of Singapore, with a huge expanse of un-grilled windows. Double-glazed, they ensure that the sounds from the neighbourhood are kept out when desired, yet offer an unobstructed view, and plenty of natural light into the living spaces of this apartment.

Newly renovated with >1,600sqft of space

Recently given a glow-up just 4 years ago, this jumbo HDB flat in Marine Drive clocks in at 1,690sqft big, with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.

Originally a 4-bedroom apartment, the renovation has transformed this jumbo HDB for enlarged living areas; its original squarish layout means plenty of usable space, done up in natural stone tiles and dark brown, with an earthy terracotta sofa lending brightness, and strip lighting to counter the darker materials.

Condo-worthy master bedroom with integrated work area

There are beautifully carved out spaces in this house, especially when it comes to the master bedroom suite━a room divider doubles up as both a feature wall for a mounted television, as well as an integrated workspace on the other side, along a hallway that leads to the ensuite bathroom.

To amplify the wealth of space in this house, embellishments are kept to a minimum, creating a minimalist, soothing atmosphere. Recessed cove lighting in the bedroom provides diffused light that helps with winding down at night, especially paired with the dark wood finishings, while wall-mounted bedside lamps add to the posh, hotel-like vibe.

In contrast to the dark wood feature wall, one wall of the room is lined with sleek, full-height white cabinets to maximise storage areas, with a recessed nook for easily accessible bits and bobs.

His-and-hers sinks & a walk-in wardrobe

Thanks to the recent renovation, where the original pipings of the 48-year-old flat were ripped out and replaced, the previous homeowners had the luxury of shifting things around. The result: his-and-hers vanities in the master bedroom’s ensuite toilet, with concealed cabinets and an infinity mirror effect, courtesy of the parallel-running vanities.

This master ensuite, it seems, is neverending-ly big, with a private toilet cubicle, and a large walk-in shower that screams luxe, with its rain shower and homogenous large, matte grey tiles.

To top off this stunning bedroom, with its Italian stone flooring, you have a walk-in wardrobe that’ll tickle any girl’s fancy.

Elegant kitchen with 5.2m-long worktop

No expense was spared in the kitchen too, an elongated room with its cabinetry and work spaces flush against both walls, lengthening the space and maximising its utility.

With Blum finishings, as well as a premium Dekton countertop that runs 5.2m long, there’s no lack of work space for the home chef.

The same dark wood that features in the rest of the home is found here too, with its grain running parallel to the layout of the kitchen to provide visual depth. Sleek and dark, the cabinets, with their handle-less design, are a clean contrast to the white backsplash and grain of the stone flooring, while LED strip lighting under a floating shelf over the countertop provide extra illumination.

With the TEL opening at Marine Parade this 23 June 2024, the east has suddenly become that much more accessible. With its generous size, stunning makeover and proximity to loads of amenities, this flat at 64 Marine Drive might even, some might think, have gone for a song at $1.38M.
