It is a dream of many to live right by the ocean, to throw open the windows and gaze out at miles and miles of aquamarine waters and the misty horizon, to jog along the beach and inhale only the freshest air. This rather expensive dream can now be turned into reality, at a price that would make you ask “Really?”
D’Seaview is a mixed-use complex comprising more than 700 condominium units, shopspaces, a mall, restaurants, office spaces, and a 10-storey, 98-room boutique hotel. Its location is at the pulse of Sihanoukville, at Sokha Beach, and is an unprecedented property development by a Singaporean company, HLH Group, under its Cambodian property subsidiary CAMHOMES.
While D’Seaview’s commercial units and hotel are slated to be completed by the end of 2017, the entire venture is set to finish in 2018 – a short two-year wait to move into your beachfront home.
The residential unit layouts leave one spoilt for choice, with various options starting from the compact yet sleek one-bedroom unit, ideal for couples or young executives, spacious two-bedroom units – with four layouts being split level, and the three-bedroom unit that has a range of sizes – perfect for families looking for larger spaces. At the height of D’Seaview’s luxury accommodation are the two-storey, four-bedroom duplexes with an enticing roof deck for all sorts of activities like family barbeques, sun tanning and dinner parties.
This unparalleled project in Sihanoukville has been raved about by many real estate industry experts, who have termed it a “fantastic investment opportunity”.
Now that you may be considering being a D’Seaview homeowner, let’s talk about the fantastic province it is located in – Sihanoukville. A substantial number of property professionals have hailed Sihanoukville as the next real estate hotspot, as people look to escape the bustle of Phnom Penh. Its coastline of numerous pristine beaches is also accompanied by the Kingdom’s only deep-sea port, ensuring its steadily growing reputation as a trading port.
Sihanoukville is close to reaching its prime, with its international airport now operating flights to and from China, Hong Kong, Vietnam, and Korea, while locals can fly domestically from Siem Reap and Phnom Penh. In the pipeline are plans for an improved highway from Phnom Penh, while the recent opening of the passenger train network will guarantee a flurry of tourists.
In the first half of 2016, there was a 17 per cent rise in tourist arrivals, added to a monumental 66 per cent increase in arrivals by way of sea as a growing number of cruise ships include Sihanoukville to their itineraries of exotic destinations.
CEO and deputy chairman of HLH Group, Dr Dato’ Johnny Ong, says, “This is a highly opportunistic time to leverage on Sihanoukville’s booming growth by expanding and growing our businesses. Sihanoukville’s tourism growth has been on a rapid rise in recent years.”
He added, “There are many international light-industrial parks and special economic zones being set up in the province as Sihanoukville is a deep-sea water port, and it is also the third largest province in Cambodia with an international airport.”
D’Seaview will provide you a home that complies with the best Singaporean building code standards, as its construction has been awarded to Yanjian Group (Cambodia), which is a subsidiary of global engineering and construction company Yanjian Group.
With the success of D’Seaview, which has sold more than 51 per cent of its 737 residential units, CAMHOMES aims to launch more high-quality and affordable housing developments that target the multiplying middle-income residents in Cambodia.
Most importantly, Cambodia has for the last six years enacted the law of foreign property ownership which allows foreign clients and investors to buy units in co-owned buildings built after 2010, with a maximum of 70 per cent of all units in these buildings able to be foreign-owned.
D’Seaview has garnered much interest and off-plan sales from locals, expats and overseas buyers from Malaysia, Singapore, China, Australia and some European countries.
Realise your beach-dwelling dreams now, and let D’Seaview be your premiere choice of living on the shoreline.
