The pandemic and prolonged lockdowns made us appreciate our living spaces like never before.
Given the quarantine restrictions amid this health crisis, our home has become more than just a shelter. It is also now our office, classroom, playground and place of leisure.
It comes as no surprise that many families still favor the traditional house and lot as this offers more space, flexibility and freedom. Not to mention the pride and security that owning a piece of land brings, knowing that you—as well as your children—are set for life and would always have a roof above your heads.
Colliers International Philippines has, in fact, “observed steady demand for horizontal projects in key areas outside Metro Manila including Pampanga, Cavite, Laguna and Batangas despite the pandemic.” According to Colliers’ senior manager for research and Inquirer Property columnist Joey Roi Bondoc, “Investors are looking for homes offering larger living spaces, open areas and outdoor space.”
Trusted property developer Sta. Lucia Land Inc. offers two such projects in Pampanga that promise to be an ideal option for those looking to invest in the traditional house and lot: Beverly Place Residential and Business Estates, and Glory Heights Residential Estate.
Located in Brgy. San Rafael, Mexico, Pampanga, Beverly Place Residential and Business Estates is a mixed-use, self-contained community where you can live where you work and work where you live. It saves one from long, arduous commutes day in and day out, not to mention the hassle of having to endure the rush hour traffic each morning and evening.
Beverly Place’s strategic location places you right at the center of manufacturing, commerce and business. It is right beside SM Pampanga and near Robinsons Starmills. The business estate is just 30 minutes away from Clark Special Economic Zone and Diosdado Macapagal Airport and a mere three minutes from the City of San Fernando exit. If you have business to attend to in Manila, the newly improved North Luzon Expressway (NLEx) allows fast and comfortable travel—you’ll be at the Balintawak Toll Gate in 45 minutes.
Designed to be the perfect place to live, raise a family, work and play, Beverly Place includes an 18-hole championship golf course with a clubhouse, function rooms and golfer’s lounge, as well as a community clubhouse that features a tennis court, basketball court and swimming pool. Modern infrastructure will allow residents to keep up with the global trend of home offices and telecommuting as an alternative work option.
Glory Heights Residential Estate, meanwhile, is the first full-scale modern subdivision to be developed in the progressive town of Sto. Tomas, Pampanga. Situated in Brgy. Balangcas, the residential development is accessible via McArthur Highway, San Simon Exit and NLEx.
Homeowners can expect to come home to a secure, gated community. They can go on morning runs around the beautifully landscaped neighborhood and evening walks after dinner along the paved walkways. A multi-function clubhouse is available for family gatherings. Those into sports and fitness will enjoy the open basketball court, tennis court and swimming pool. The little ones can make new friends at the children’s park and playground.
Here, one will not have to worry about access to essential services as Glory Heights is a few minutes’ drive to the public market, banks, hospitals and commercial centers such as SM Pampanga. Residents also have that advantage of being close to the heart of Pampanga, as the community is beside the province’s busiest municipality, San Fernando.
