You are also 12 mins away from Geylang Methodist School for both the primary and secondary divisions. St Margaret’s Primary School is also just one MRT stop away.
literally just beside Macpherson MRT station, which has access to both the Circle line and Downtown line, it will be convenient for you to head to Chinatown, Tampines, or even the Botanical Gardens via the Circle Line. Being at the heart of an interchange, transportation will be a breeze. Since Macpherson MRT is one stop away from Paya Lebar, it will also be equally convenient for you to access the East-West line too.
Most people in Singapore would know to avoid the west sun because they probably known the sun to rise in the East direction and sets in the West direction. Singapore's afternoon sun mainly are from two directions, northwest and southwest. From March to September, the sun is in the direction of the north-west, and from September to March, the sun is in the south-west direction. Homeowners generally avoid buying west-facing units due to the strong sunrays where the sun will be on the afternoon!

As this is a built-up residential plot, there isn’t much green spaces around. However, the Central Urban Loop and the Eastern Coast Loop is about 2Km away, making it convenient if you decide to explore Singapore via the Park Connectors. Geylang is going through a transformation, and with its close proximity to food centers, CBD, as well as the upcoming redevelopment of Paya Lebar, it is a good choice for most families. Note that you will be subject to the noise from the Paya Lebar airbase till 2030 when they relocate to the west. If you are looking to invest, then this might be a good choice for a BTO since the location is pretty awesome as well as its close proximity to industrial zones as well as PLQ.
