Living in the city can be fun and exciting. There is no dull moment for many adventure-seekers in the big city. It’s true what they say, that if you can make it here, you can make it practically anywhere. But, with the good also comes the bad.
Every day, city dwellers are faced with all sorts of hazards and dilemmas, from being stuck in horrendous traffic for hours to bearing with pollution and crowded areas. Those who have to put up with all these on a daily basis often dream of going to a place that is calm and peaceful.
Sta. Lucia Land Inc. allows you to turn your daydreams into reality. This trusted property developer offers a wide range of high quality choice developments that will enable one to enjoy and live in a stress-free community, while being just a short drive away from the bright lights of the city.
Catalina Lake Residences, for one, is a prime example of a development where one can live the good life while being surrounded by the calming aura of nature. Located in Bauan, Batangas, this pioneering lakeside community is dotted with Spanish-Mediterranean houses and archetypal lake residences.
This well-planned community weaves together elegance and comfort in one place. Its centerpiece is the man-made lake and its iconic lighthouse. It offers an idyllic setup for an upscale community with top-notch security and master-planned infrastructure.
Here’s why it makes good sense to live in a lakeside community:
It is the best stress-buster
Scientific research says that being near blue spaces—areas that are located near bodies of water—can lower levels of psychological distress. Just by looking out to the calm waters outside your home, your mind sweeps away the stress and releases more endorphins or the so-called “happy hormone.”
Witnessing a breathtaking sunrise over the lake will surely help heal the mind and body. The sound of lapping water from the lake is nature’s way of curing sleepless nights.
Thrive in serenity
Lakeside communities are more secluded and, if properly maintained, can be offer you an exclusive sanctuary.
Living in lakeside properties is said to offer a more tranquil experience for the residents as large bodies of water can greatly reduce the noise you often deal with in the concrete jungle.
After a long day at work, you can retreat to your own place of serenity here, where all your worries seem to go away.
If you live in a lakeside residence with beautiful scenery, you would probably want to go outside more often, thus encouraging you to have a more active lifestyle. Here, you can achieve your fitness goals with the myriad of outdoor activities.
The scenery will also give you more reasons to go for a quick run or do yoga near the lake, which also offers the perfect setting to go kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding or swimming. Children will have more space to run and play.
At the end of the day, you and your family will spend more quality time together.
Aside from lakeside residences, Sta. Lucia also created another nature-inspired community in Palo Alto Residences.
Located along Marcos Highway near Antipolo, Palo Alto is a place where you literally live next to nature. It features a cascading man-made waterfall where it serves as the main attraction for the Sta. Lucia Country Club located within the residential community.
This modern playground presents world-class sports amenities for the whole family: a six-lane tenpin bowling alley, gymnasium, swimming pools and covered basketball and tennis courts. Also, a pristine 78-ha forest reserve and a mango orchard offer the best view to unwind in.
This prime residential and commercial estate is nestled on an elevated terrain that is twice the sea level of Tagaytay City.
