PHUKET: Following the completion of phase one of 59 European-style tropical townhomes in Thalang under the banner “Baan Tak r Kard”, local developer Living Vis has launched the second phase of its residential development under the brand “r homes”, in a bid to attract more expat buyers.
“More than 80 per cent of the two- and three-bedroom homes in phase one are now occupied by expats and families of mixed nationalities, who are attracted to the affordability of high-quality homes, which has given the community a distinctly international feel,” said Living Vis director Sunchai Neungsit.
Overwhelming interest from foreign buyers prompted Living Vis to launch sales of phase two under the banner r homes, in line with the international appeal of the project, he explained.
Located a little bit more than four kilometers from Layan Beach, r homes was initially launched as a
holiday-home investment for local buyers.
However, the pre-built homes – with features such as Kholer bathrooms, Fletcher Aluminium doors and windows incorporated into eco- designs that allow for natural ventilation, as well as other cost-saving features – have been a hit among foreigners, especially the reasonable prices.
Priced at 3.98 million baht, Emotion One (two bedrooms) and Emotion Two (three bedrooms) homes measure five and six meters wide, respectively.
Emotion One living space covers a total area of 108sqm, plus an 18.4sqm driveway and a 12sqm garden.
The larger six-meter-wide Emotion Two homes have three bathrooms with living space covering 125sqm, a 23.6sqm driveway and 14sqm garden.
Construction of phase two of r homes is expected to be completed by the end of 2015 with the addition of a clubhouse and swimming pool exclusively for residents.
