News: The Cove Bungalow Homes Wins Best Landed Development (Malaysia) Award for Horizon Hills Development

Jul 11, 2019

One of 11 residential precincts within the award-winning township of Horizon Hills, The Cove Bungalow Homes is an exclusive development that exudes an air of incredible relaxation and a lifestyle surrounded by greenery. The development is set in the upmarket enclave of Johor Bahru in Iskandar which is growing into a prominent metropolis linking the south of Malaysia to Singapore.

The whole 1,200-acre development is exquisitely low-density, with a championship golf course and spacious homes that are modern and welcoming. Along with other residential estates within the whole site, the bungalow development scooped Best Landed Development (Malaysia) at the 6th annual PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Malaysia) in April 2019 for Horizon Hills Development Sdn. Bhd, a joint residential real-estate venture between Gamuda Bhd. and UEM Land Holdings Berhad. Architectural-design talent was injected into the project by Arkitek Rekacipta, with Signature Interior Design & Work adding a creative touch to the interiors and Nature Landscape looking after the outdoor space. 

This part of the development is a community of just 25 two- or three-storey homes, each with five main bedrooms plus an extra bedroom. Natural light indoors, panoramic views, natural woodland and outstanding facilities give the development its character and identity, while impressing this year’s judging panel too.

“Indoor-outdoor living is best exemplified at the Horizon Hills (The Cove Bungalow Homes) project, which offers its customers an exclusive membership to Horizon Hills Golf & Country Club. The developers made sure that the forest within the property is preserved to promote a healthy and balanced lifestyle for residents and visitors.”

With streams and lakes, the homes border the edge of an 18-hole, par-72 golf course designed by world-renowned Ross Watson. Meanwhile the expanse of green is extended by Sireh Park recreation space. Add a calming community atmosphere, and the overall effect is one of a picturesque residential haven.

The properties that make up The Cove Bungalow Homes development are configured in three types, with the architecture and layout of each created to fit with a design ethos of maximising space and views from all vantage points. Tropical architecture, double-volume spaces, and outdoor decks, plus an open design and layout concept create flow and a sense of communal living: contemporary homes that feel elegant and inviting. Indigenous species planted for soft-scaping inspire sustainability and green gardens for each home are designed to be easily personalised, with space for a swimming pool too.

Cultivating a richer biodiversity, the development boasts solar-panel water heaters and a rainwater harvesting system. Beyond its green appeal, residents can enjoy a superior quality of life with an Olympic-sized swimming pool and kids’ pool, communal spaces, restaurants, and sports courts, as well as meeting rooms and shops. Catering for the whole township, there is a childcare centre within the whole development along with playgrounds, while space for educational facilities from pre-school up to high-school is provided for too.

The Cove Bungalow Homes is intrinsically developed around the idea of families being able to grow into a unique community as the landscape blossoms and the city outside this well-designed oasis becomes ever more urbanised.
