Dairy Farm Residences by UE + Herb garden? Really?

Recommended Posts

Previously the entire site was an elevated hill. The hill was levelled when they first construct the German European School, Singapore.

Case Study 1: Location, location, location of Dairy Farm Residences (DFR)?

1. Shapes and Forms of this site is fairly acceptable (first looks.. "It could work" as I have yet to analyse the development.)

2. Good that the thin and narrow area south of this site is on the Diary Farm Road: An important road especially if one wants to travel towards Bukit Timah/Hillview area.

1160029792_Onemapdairyfarmresidences.png.8c9c4bf82cd9be78303e1da4bee32361.png

3. Another plus is that south of Dairy Park Residences is a huge (by Singapore standards) the Dairy Farm Nature Park = A breath of fresh air.

(Below: Yellow = Dairy Farm Residences)

4.  Previously whilst visiting clients at Tree House condo and also ECO Santuary.. get to see the popular use of the Dirt bike trail. 241908330_dairyfarmdirtbiketrail.png.d128939ba4be9f14a92af3845d93fb5f.png

5. Location, location, location:  a respectable 4.5 stars for this site328568386_4.5STARS-Copy.gif.380ec9066f9f2c2ab86d3e4a07a4507e.gif

Dairy-Farm-Residences-Site-Plan.thumb.jpg.cf470d3de5b40f78ae9cc02c6742cb2f.jpgCase Study 2: How's the site plan?

1. Good that the 4 blocks are laid in a predictable rectangular. With majority of the units on a true North-South compass direction 

2. Shapes and Forms wise, pretty safe layout.

3. For true cardinal North-South units, every six months, the afternoon sun may be at an acute angle towards the frontage of the North side. And the next six months, the South side will also have some heat.

4. Site Plan:  A respectable 4 Stars award

2052205152_4STARS.gif.52c4628a45bc7f25bb64793976102287.gif

5. Majority of the stacks/units do not face the slightly busier Petir Road thus pretty insulated from the morning / evening traffic on these roads. 

6. South facing stacks that are higher than the  German European School's facilities.. will indeed have a commanding view of the Dairy Farm Park.. tranquility... especially stack #41

Case Study 1: Toilet with WC and Showers back to back with each other is considered good Shapes and Forms Feng Shui as well as good design!

491769435_pipesconcealedair-well.png.063a996ef2e1362d8186bc1a213de1c6.png

1. (Above in blue) This means that the plumbing pipes are at it's most optimum connection and distribution.

431428888_Dairy-Farm-Residences-4-Bedroomraisedtoiletbowl.png.9243cf36d888e4bf1f1f0f4b5ddc9963.png2. In addition, there is only one air-well to hide these pipes. As compared to the wasted space at Sengkang Grand Residences design. 

2.1. Therefore the shower area is a respectable size + does not eat-in to the floor area of the unit. (Already, the A/C ledge that one is paying is considered as the unit's floor area... LOL)

3. (Above in yellow). Simply means that each of the two WCs are wall mounted + hydraulic pump to flush each of them.

Case Study 2: Mixed developments always have air-con cooling towers somewhere on the roof or in this case close to the common area(s) of the residential facilities.

1648818892_OUTDOORCOOLINGTOWER.jpg.6cc49ce6cf70c0ac789dac0d384a0e41.jpg1. Before signing on the dotted line, check with your respective Agent  the mall air-con cooling towers are not close-by or next to your potential unit. 

2. Often, if one's unit is beside such a cooling tower, one may hear the noise generated by the cooling fans x ? how many? 

3. In addition, when the development gets older... often.. older cooling tower fans may get noisier. 

4. In addition, the flow of air from the cooling towers are not exactly a breath of fresh air. If you kinda get my drift..  

5. One good news is that often the cooling towers operational hours depends on the respective tenants at the mall. 

6. Try not to get a few of then operating 24 hours.. especially certain fast food chains... then some of these cooling towers might perhaps run 24 hours? Else often perhaps they may start running at around 11am to maybe 10.30pm? Sorry,

6.1 I am making an educated guess that's all. In doubt, check from the horses mouth... or the Managing Agent of the mall.. when the time comes... hopefully by then not too late...

6.2 I have also recorded the sounds from the roof of a commercial building which shares the same plot of land as HDB Tampines Greenweave...

7. Please note that these pictures and movies with sound are from HDB Tampines Greenweave, Non from Dairy Farm Residences....

8. Please turn on the volume and click on this to hear a sample of the roof-top equipment noise:-

Case Study 3: Sampling of Inauspicious "Fire at Heaven's Gate".

Dairy-Farm-Residences-4-Bedroom.jpg.47083b5326f467352d581ff096aeb664.jpg1. If one does a search in this forum, will soon come to the conclusion that it is unfavourable for the stove to be exactly on the NW cardinal point

2. As this development has stacks/units that faces North and South directions, it is possible for some units to have the kitchen and even the stove at NW as shown in the above sample of Stack 22.

1804644637_Dairy-Farm-Residencesfireatheavensgate.thumb.png.9796134226c7bfd2ffd3a822d18f336c.pngAn indepth understanding of kitchen at NW can be found under this article:-

Case Study 4: Fortunately no one buys a home in a location just because it has a Herb Garden right?

790357518_Dairy-Farm-ResidencesHerbGarden1.png.618841fbba8b26bda3f866e90bc4b1a0.png272057711_Dairy-Farm-ResidencesHerbGarden.png.de777219eafe0414a45286df1cd65dc9.png

1. Developers must realise that all private estates/ECs/Condos must do mandatory fogging without fail every week.

74CE39DA-C5DA-42DC-926A-70E4F0DC06F9.thumb.jpeg.3ff0d85d02390d1bbd10d173d5aa2df8.jpeg

2. For those who have exprienced a fogging episode will realise that often, the fumigation (fogging) can reach as high as the third or even fourth floor or more depending on wind conditions and layout of the blocks etc...

(Below: Even after fogging had finished after 6 minutes and depending on the wind conditions, the smoke can be seen to rise up to 3rd storeys or higher in this development).

A3C4D9DE-B82E-4457-98EB-DA4A49CD556D.thumb.jpeg.b004c6675972c4b79e004faebb3fc65f.jpeg

3. So what is stopping the fogging to reach the Herb Garden?

3.1. Even if the herbs grow beautifully.. dare to pluck and makan? Huh?

3.2. As this is not an enclosed area, no motivation also for a resident or group of residents to cultivate the herbs.

3.3. What if... someone else just harvest them? Then what? Happy lah!

3.4. They get slowly poisoned by the fogging chemicals absorbed by the herbs...

0123852C-E060-4B63-A6C8-A20A3D148F54.thumb.jpeg.cb5ca3a675be4cf9d6e6619a3b2f8bef.jpeg4. For example, last year I visited Prive condo a few times. This development once HAD a spice garden. But seems like no spice plants. Became just another planter area. Lol...

5. All developers and their architects and their landscape planners should understand this!

6. Even if you don't stay there, don't become an idiot! Please.. Lol...

P.S. Note: Photos are not of Sengkang Grand Residences. Added by me for illustration purposes, only.

Case Study 5: Ask your Agent to obtain the block layout plans to identify the common bin location.

1. There is no excuse that this information is not available or it's confidential. Last resort is to request for a change of Agent - hopefully not. Remember, it is not like buying a pair of shoes... LOL

1.1. In this sample illustration from a different development.

778843694_samplecommonbinwhere.png.631c72ed685e17dbfacfb871b4d45bc2.png

2. See how this developer had described it as: "For Internal Circulation Only".

3. Implying perhaps that if one is not smart enough to ask, only during key collection, then perhaps stack #02 will find out that the common bin is the closest to their unit.

4. Fortunately although it is just two utility rooms away from the door.

4.1. Nevertheless, cross-fingers that a future potential buyer might not try to avoid or perhaps low-ball the sale...

4.2. Worse, if the potential buyer brings along an overzealous Feng Shui Master.

4.3 It is the end of the story. Here it becomes: "Please look elsewhere!".

Note: This layout plan does not belong to this development. Shown here as merely a sample.

Case Study 6: Do you know that even if a geomancer says that the site is excellent, all sites are govern by the concept of the Bell Curve

1. Remember, even if a geomancer says that this is a good development. However, a good unit also depends on where it is within the development:

1016030592_THEBELLCURVE(1).png.6bd8421a800bf571c5f03c1f9fa4a481.png

2. Is your potential unit under the Good, the Bad or the Ugly?

971573323_THEBELLCURVE(3)A.thumb.png.42e5c2184f174bfa1d33f630df7f5658.png564893878_THEBELLCURVE(2).thumb.png.b12d753baed592dd7739556efd6e0a6e.png

3. Often if one is lucky, even if the unit is not so fantastic superficially. Some units are like an unpolished gem. While others unfortunately may be a hopeless rotten apple.

3.1. Just imagine, if the unit is like a 10 year old rundown 1,000 cc car. Even a good Feng Shui Master is unable to turn it into a good unit!

4. Under Habit 1, one possibility is by ranking one's bedroom type by stack/unit: 1st choice, 2nd choice etc...
