1A Stonor’s Best Feature…?
Conveniently situated at the junction of two main road arteries – Jalan Conlay and Stonor – the low-rise residence snatched a good spot in the city. It neighbours U-Thant Residence, Istana Kelantan and Vista Permai enjoying the array of conveniences the KLCC enclave has to offer. From the condominium are premier amenities, mostly a short walk away, including shopping malls, commercial and business centres.
Shopping destinations such as KL Pavilion, Suria KLCC and Avenue K are a stone’s throw away inviting residents to indulge in exception retail and dining experience. Other centres worth exploring include Times Square, BB Plaza and Lot 10. If recreation is what you’re after, look no further as KLCC boasts a number of golf clubs including Royal Selangor. A polo club is just as accessible catering to polo enthusiasts.
Within a 1-km radius are excellent schools for residents with children. Hospitality-wise, the area is littered with five-star and classy hotels including Trader’s Hotel, Prince Hotel, Westin and JW Marriot. Meanwhile, the ultra sophisticated Prince Court Medical Centre is readily available in case of any medical needs.
Apart from quick access to a wealth of amenities, 1A Stonor also enjoys very good connectivity – another selling point for the condominium. Among the road arteries providing direct access to the property are Jalan Stonor, Jan Perak, Jalan Raja Chulan, Jalan Kia Peng, Lorong Binjai and the main artery of KL Jalan Tun Razak.
What We Think
While sited in bustling KLCC, 1A Stonor is tucked in a quieter area making it a good choice for those who still want to enjoy peace and quiet. It is also an excellent prospect for discerning buyers who want to experience the best of KLCC without going broke. As among the cheapest homes in the city centre, 1A Stonor affords you a cozy home in the city, one that you can conveniently fit into your budget. Capital appreciation, however, is not as promising as other prospects unless the development has plans for upgrades.
All in all, 1A Stonor might be a good place to start if affordability is a key part of your investment plans, and you want a place in the middle of the city. While prices may be relatively low when compared to other condominiums in the KLCC area, you may want to check its fair market value first so that you don’t overpay, and you maximize the upside potential.
