If you are house hunting, make sure your apartment checks all these boxes

Location, location, location.
When buying a house, this is the most common refrain you’ll hear from property agents, friends and family. And that’s because it’s true. The location of the property is probably the most important factor when shopping for a new home. You want your neighbourhood to be safe and convenient, somewhere you’re happy to spend the majority of your time in.
Once you’ve zeroed in on the perfect location, there are several other factors to consider. Whether you’re looking for a starter home or are planning on investing in a second apartment, it’s important to have a checklist in mind so you can easily identify your dream home.
Here is a little guide to get you started.
1. Spaciousness and luxury
In these times, it’s likely you’re going to spend a lot of time in your apartment, so naturally you want to feel cosy and pampered. Oval Kuala Lumpur is a freehold condominium complex that offers residents a truly luxe living experience. Each of the 140 capacious units come with floor-to-ceiling glass windows that offer a panoramic view of the city skyline, with column-less interiors to enhance the feeling of spaciousness.
All the rooms are outfitted with a wraparound balcony while the master bedroom includes a free-standing whirlpool jacuzzi for an added touch of luxury. The marble floor extends from the living area to the elegantly appointed dining room and kitchen, which comes with an island counter that offers plenty of space for you to prepare meals and enjoy them with family and friends.
2. Access to wellness facilities
On-site amenities have always been an important consideration when choosing an apartment – even more so now when you might be avoiding public gyms and spas. Enjoy an enhanced quality of life at The Oval with its plethora of services and facilities designed for residents’ wellness in mind. After swimming a few laps at the infinity pool and hitting the gym at the fully equipped fitness centre, take a breather by the relaxation pool or the neatly manicured lawn area. There is even an on-site sauna so you can completely chill out and unwind.
3. Access to necessities
Remember what we said about location? That means being close to your workplace as well as within easy reach of shops and restaurants. The Oval has an enviable location in the midst of multinational corporations, financial institutions and reputable international schools. Shopping malls such as Suria KLCC and Pavilion Kuala Lumpur are within walking distance, while Bukit Bintang and Chinatown are just a five-minute drive away.
The soon-to-be-unveiled KLCC East MRT station will also be located on your doorstep. It connects you to various suburbs around Kuala Lumpur and Selangor and serves as a link to the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore high-speed rail. A 350km-long railway that is able to transport passengers from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur in about 90 minutes, it is also set to open in coming years. This offers those living in Kuala Lumpur unparalleled international connectivity. Imagine being able to get to Singapore from your apartment in less than two hours.
4. Proximity to KLCC Park
Living in the heart of a busy metropolis of Kuala Lumpur, it’s important to have easy access to nature. The Oval is located just a walking distance of 150m from KLCC Park, a sprawling 20ha garden with a large manmade lake. The park also features various mini waterfalls and reflecting pools as well as a jogging track and a large children’s playground. If you prefer something even wilder, Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve (now known as KL Forest Eco Park) is located just 3km away. This tropical rainforest in the middle of the city offers a variety of walking trails where you can spot wildlife such as the silver-leafed monkey.
