Nothing says ‘perfect home’ quite like the seamless blend of contemporary living and proximity to nature, recent studies on the Philippine property scene reveal. Filipinos’ interest in residences with private green spaces has spiked, with home seekers especially drawn towards spacious and airy condominium units with wellness and leisure amenities within reach.
Presenting itself to discerning Filipinos seeking alternative primary homes is premier mountain resort development Tagaytay Highlands. Within its sprawling complex rises Horizon Terraces Garden Suites, its luxury condominium estate that is surrounded by lush greenery and majestic nature views.
Global real estate services firm Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) Philippines’ recent findings add that homebuyers now prefer functional property features, such as allocations for a home office and study area—and health- and wellness-related amenities. And with restrictions easing up, Filipinos are not only eager to explore the outdoors once more but seriously consider living close to it.
Horizon Terraces Garden Suites’ five-storey, low-density residential condominiums offer one- to two-bedroom units, thoughtfully laid out to accommodate resident families’ varying needs, be it for work- and study-from-home setups or for lavish rest and relaxation opportunities.
Living spaces feature large windows and sliding doors that let natural light and ventilation in. This means constantly indulging in the morning sun and the fresh mountain breeze, with the midrise’s higher floors offering stunning vistas of Taal Lake and Volcano, Mount Makiling, and distant mountain ranges. Those who prefer the garden units have immediate access to verdant greenery and the chance to commune with nature.
An idyllic choice for affluent Filipinos seeking alternative primary homes, Horizon Terraces Garden Suites has a Central Garden which comprises 70 percent of the community’s land area dedicated to recreational and open garden space. Designed to be exclusively savored by only a number of homeowners, the Central Garden entices one to take leisurely walks at its Garden Courtyard and have fun checking the time with the Sun Dial. In this serene setting, children may enjoy frolicking at the Sensory Garden while adults and senior residents can read, do yoga, stretch their bodies, and otherwise spend tranquil moments at the Pocket Gardens. As for group-friendly engagements, families and their guests can take a dip in resort-inspired swimming pools, while the Midlands Golf Course is just a stroll away.
Because the expansive Central Garden is only a few steps from Horizon Terraces Garden Suites, the condominium complex meets—and actually surpasses—the World Health Organization’s recommendation that every resident should have 0.5 to 1 hectare of green space of no more than 300 meters from their homes. This bolsters the notion that open green spaces enhance the physical and mental health of community members, who also benefit from reduced air and noise pollution.
All the aforementioned features define everyday living for Horizon Terraces Garden Suites residents, who also have access to Tagaytay Highlands’ dizzying array of amenities for leisure and recreation. These include world-class golf courses, sports facilities, outdoor pursuits, and specialty restaurants offering various cuisines and gourmet delights.
Over and beyond the concerns of future health crises, families and prospective property investors would do well to choose Horizon Terraces Garden Suites as an alternative primary home. Offering flexible payment terms, Horizon Terraces is an upscale development of SM Prime Holdings subsidiary, Highlands Prime, Inc. (HPI), which currently dominates the Metro Tagaytay market, boasting the most active inventory at a time of peak market interest.
Attesting to its steadfast commitment to provide safe and secure facilities for its members, residents, and their guests, Tagaytay Highlands has been awarded the Safety Seal of the City Government of Tagaytay. The Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development also recently recognized HPI as one of CALABARZON’s 2021 Outstanding Developers for Open Market Projects.
Tagaytay Highlands’ Property Management remains efficient—from compliance with health and safety precautionary measures to delivery of quick crisis responses during adverse natural and high-risk events.
