0 Sunway Rymba Hills, Sunway Damansara

3-storey Forest Villas (Zero-lot bungalows)..mmmm..heavenly. Anything with the word "forest" in it sounds like Utopia these days, except that we all know that it's scarce and there's just too little of it to go around.

That said, I'm keen to see how this development will tie in with the natural greens behind it.

Access is via the flood prone (I wonder if it still is) Persiaran Surian road (near Palm Spring Condo). From the junction, the view seems neat enough with townhouses and trees along the way but driving further down, you'll see several factories before reaching the intended location. This doesn't contribute well to the exclusive feel of the development. That makes the RM4mil tag seem over-the-top.

Barring these unfavourable elements, Sunway Rymba Hills would have been an ideal buy.

Why? Because it's built on a private hill which makes it a less attractive target for thieves. The unobstructed view is a plus. I also love the idea of sipping tea alfresco, in the compound of my house without the prying eyes of passers-by, the nose-pinching Alam Flora's garbage truck and the "honk-honk" of a roti man.

The show unit was closed for refurbishing (will reopen in a week, says the Guard) so there was no opportunity for me to explore the place further. It would have been interesting to view a bare unit. I hope it's designed where homeowners can expect to move in immediately without renovations required. Now, that would certainly be "WOW".

Looks promising

Not too flashy
