Why does an HDB unit DBSS at The Peak Toa Payoh cost more than a private condominium?




Design, Build and Sell Scheme (DBSS) flats are built by private developers with each development characterized by unique external features that do not look like the traditional public housing we are used to. Big balconies and full-length windows are one of the prominent characteristics of a modern condominium that can be easily identified within a DBSS project. In addition to the general renovation guidelines, flat owners need to follow these guidelines to help maintain the development’s aesthetics just like any condo project in Singapore.


But why are they so sought after record-breaking prices are always on the headlines? Let's Find out!


The Peak is a highly sought-after Public Housing residential development due to several factors like its location, amenities, and quality of the units. The Peak is situated in Toa Payoh, a mature and well-established town in Singapore, which is highly convenient for daily living. The development is situated close to the MRT station, major expressways, and shopping malls, making it highly accessible to various parts of Singapore.


Such development doesn't offer luxurious amenities such as a swimming pool, function rooms, and gymnasiums, which are not appealing to such buyers in return for monthly high maintenance costs.


Entering the apartment, the customized cabinetry at the foyer welcomes the owner's home. There's a sitting area for them to take of their shoes and store plenty 'barang barang'. The foyer also gives privacy for the family if they decide to leave their door open for even better airflow. This well-thought layout resembles luxurious private homes which you will hardly see in normal HDB apartments.


This 5-room apartment is 1259 sqft which is relatively large and comfortable for extended family as compared to the newer houses in today's era.


The owners installed smart tempered glass windows which can be easily opened or close when the need arises. This also allows cool air to be extended to the balcony increasing the communal space for a dining table to be placed on the balcony.


The original kitchen wall has been removed to make a bigger and more spacious entrance into the kitchen. The cooking area and washing area have been separated to prevent the clash of elements as per Feng Shui beliefs.



Both of the common rooms are bright and spacious each can fit a queen-size mattress and a study or dressing table by the side. Both rooms have enlarged and functional wardrobes. The rooms boast expensive teak flooring as well.



There is an option to remove the headboard behind the bed revealing the original windows if you think the full sliding doors to the balcony aren't enough. This beautiful parquet flooring has been restored recently and will stand the test of time and surpass trends.

DBSS Master's room are equipped with full sliding length glassdoor allowing natural light and airflow. This apartment is located on the upper levels at most time of the year, the owners don't even need to turn on the air-conditioner. The large wardrobe space is ample for the two busy owners.

The Master's Bathroom boast a large standing shower area and washing area good enough to fit two comfortably.

Unwind by having private time sitting on the Master's Balcony.
