My Danau Impian Condo Up For Sale

in June 2009

I'm putting up my condo unit up for sale. My unit is at Danau Impian Condominium located in Taman Danau Desa or within walking distance from Taman Desa's Faber Towers. Thought of renting it out but at last decided to sell it off.

Why I'm selling? I'm moving to a new house in Bukit Jalil and hopefully upon getting my vacant possession of the new house (could obtain VP any time now), I can sign off the Sale and Purchase Agreement for this condo unit. I'll be renovating my new house and will move out upon completion of the renovation which may take the next two to three months. You can probably estimate to move in by Aug/Sept 2009.

Some pictures for you to feel the surrounding first .... the condo management do ensure the environment, compound and landscaping are well kept.

There are three condo blocks of 15 floors each with 10 condo units on each floor. The whole condo compound is about 6 acres, quite large.

Bought it in 1994 and moved in on 31 Aug 1997. The condo blocks have complete CF, of course.

My corner condo unit is situated on the 3rd floor (happened to be one of the four corner units per floor, more privacy) of the Canary Tower or also known as Block 17. The size of my condo unit is 918 square feet.

Next door occupant is my childhood friend where we bought our units together on the launching day. Opposite units are working folks, a young Malay couple and an Indian family of three. Quiet 3rd floor even during night time.

Gardeners and cleaners will be around to keep the whole compound clean on daily basis.

On monthly basis, a maintenance fee (incl. sinking fund) of RM192 has to be paid to the condo management office. The management is now under Danau Impian Joint Management Body, where committee comprise of condo residents and Faber Facilities S/B, the condo developer.

One of those days that I relaxed by the poolside while doing some work. The lap pool is about 25 metres long.

If you notice properly and try squeezing your eyeballs, you could probably see the basketball court just right after the pool.

It has a mini-market, gym room, children's playground, laundry, hair saloon, children day care centre and 24 hours security.

This is the view from my living hall's window.

The master strata title has been released by Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur and the individual strata title is currently being arranged.

If you are the buyer, I'll have to obtain consents from Faber (the developer) and DBKL (joint owner of the land) and seek for direct transfer to your name via a sub-sale agreement.

This whole condo compound / property is a leasehold land and 99 years started in year 1994. Now, it has another 84 years remaining, long enough to last another two generations.

Slight view of the swimming pool.

During weekends, one of the residents will be selling malay dishes for breakfast & lunch at the covered area (roofing seen at the bottom of this picture).

That's the towering Faber Towers. The car park lot for this condo is about 50 metres from the ground floor lift area.

Convenience: Accessible from/to Jalan Kelang Lama, Federal Highway-Tmn Connaught Highway and Seremban Highway. Taman Desa Hospital and Desa Water Park are nearby.

Variety of shops at Danau Business Centre are just next to the condominium (the rooftops just in front of Faber Towers). Five minutes drive to Mid Valley. I could say that this area is the central point to almost everywhere.

View Larger Map

My unit has plain cornices in the living hall and all three rooms. Well kept and maintained as it was owner occupied since day one. My living hall has marble flooring.

I would say that I may leave all those lightings behind .....

The most expensive part of the condo, the kitchen! Solid concrete table with nice black tiles.

I have extended the internal gas piping out to the yard area so cooking could be done there which has another short concrete table too. You need not hack the walls to do it anymore. There's a ready water tap for the washing machine to be placed at the yard.

All the three bedrooms come with built-in wardrobes that are still in marvellous condition. Good hinges were used. The master bedroom and the second bedroom have air-cond pipings. All bedrooms have parquet flooring.

The master bedroom has an attached bathroom. The second bathroom is a common toilet.

All windows come with grills.

Hey, you sure could wax poetry on something as dry as property. haha, I know it's your beloved home, but still.....anything made of concrete is dry stuff to me. Not easy to write like you did. :)

But I think it's a real bargain, at RM180K. If we were looking to buy another property, I would have considered yours. Good luck, Johnny! :)

Still an impressive piece of writing, nevertheless.

how's it going? any queries yet? if not, you can always try those free online classifieds like mudah, simplifieads (not sure of spelling), malaysian real estate, etc.

Good luck!
