Sadly, They Don’t Built Homes Like The Metz Anymore

The Metz at Devonshire Living Room
In Singapore, private homes are gradually getting smaller in size and the layouts aren’t as efficient as they used to be.

For someone like me who has been in the real estate industry for almost a decade, it can be quite disheartening that our quality of living and home-ownership have been comprised on some level – due to the scarcity of land and the need to house more than 5.6 million people on this tiny little island.

I understand that this is inevitable, and our housing market may end up being a replica of Hong Kong’s (I seriously hope not!).

Recently, I was approached by one of my clients to rent out her 1-bedroom at The Metz – located along Devonshire Road.

When I stepped into the apartment, honestly, I was stunned! For 570 square feet, it looked really huge!

This 1-bedroom apartment at The Metz has probably the most ideal layout for single professionals or couples.

The spacious living area was able to fit a good-sized sofa, a coffee table and it even has enough room for a 4-seater dining table. It has an enclosed kitchen, high ceilings and massive windows which make the apartment’s interior look really bright!

The bedroom could even fit a king-sized bed easily!

The main highlight has to be the view from the apartment. At 23rd floor, the apartment overlooks the city skyline of the entire Somerset precinct.

Despite a soft rental market here in Singapore, I was able to get it out within a week.
