Just googling and find this brief info on this area at http://propertymalaysia.blogsome.com/20 ... g-puchong/Taman Dato Demang, Puchong
We first encountered this project when we went to view the nearby Permai Park, Putra Permai and Taman Equine, developed by Equine Capital (you can read the review here).
Lebar Daun is developing a few phases of low density single and double storey linkhouses in the area. Phase 1 was sold to good reception, mainly due to the very limited number of units.
For location, you can read what we had commented on the Sovereign phase of Permai Park (here), but as a recap, this area is own of the growth areas of Southern Klang Valley, with the landmark Pasar Borong Selangor (Selangor Wholesale Market) across the road. There are a few choices of access roads, LDP & Puchong to the west, Seri Kembangan and Serdang (and further on to KL) to the east, and Putrajaya and Kajang to the south. The Seri Kembangan area is infamous for the jam, and to go south and west you need to make a ‘u’ turn along the Seri Kembangan highway.
Many developers have set up shop here, including the much-discussed Lestari Puchong by Talam nearby. In terms of facilities, there are a vibrant commercial areas developed by Equine Group (like the planned Permai Square), bus depot and recreational facilities.
But for this Taman Dato’ Demang, there are basically just single storey houses and double storey ones. The single storey units were sold off quickly, even at a very stiff price of from RM171,000 to RM203,300. Very stiff indeed.
But at the moment there are only limited units of double storey units available. In our opinion, these units are more reasonably-priced compared to the single storey units, but compared to other double-storey linkhomes in other developments. Prices are from RM288,900 to RM321,000, but do check with the developer for the availability of these units. They have opted to go with smaller units (despite the pricing) of 20’ x 65’ with a build-up of 1,716sq.ft. In the day of minimum 20’ x 70’ and 1,800sq.ft targeted by other developers, most people will find this house a little cramped.
The layout is quite neat, considering the tight area. There is one kitchen only, plus a very small yard. In all, there are 4 rooms, with a reasonably sized guest room on the ground floor. We would have preferred the family area on the upper floor to be smaller, to give a larger area to the other 2 rooms. The whole house is finished in ceramic tiles including the kitchen and bedrooms (except the yard, store and porch in cement render). Corner units have balcony.
There is going to be a third phase launching soon, details can be obtained from the developer soon.
In all, we found that the units are quite cramped to sustain a mid to large sized family, and the pricing is quite high for this unit size (and leasehold too). The developers are promoting a low down payment scheme, but in effect, they will face tight competition from newer neighbouring projects (but no, we don’t mean Lestari Puchong).
Lebar Daun currently has numerous projects across the Klang Valley, and was once in the news about their proposed development in Shah Alam.
Another new development nearby (by another developer) is the massive Taman Desaminium, or Desaminium Park (you can check out our review here).
