Special Report, Heritage meets modernity

14 March 2014 – Located at the prestigious historical heart of Macau, The Fountainside embraces the proud heritage of the renowned neighbourhood while effortlessly blending modern living.

Situated at Penha Hill district, the residential property is the latest project on the city’s acclaimed heritage trail, which has been listed as a World heritage site since 2005.

Previously a home for Portuguese nobility, the development has masterfully preserved the original building’s Portuguese colonial facade. The skillful design has won it the 2012 Monomer Housing Design Award of Chinese Residential Projects.

The property’s coveted address means that not only are home owners close to the city’s cultural attractions and monuments, but they are also a mere stone’s throw from the central business district, quality school, as well as the enticing array of entertainment and dining facilities.

Commuting is also a breeze with frequent buses, and residents are just 10 minutes away from ferry terminals and 20 from the Macau International Airport, connecting them to all parts of the city and beyond.

The development offers a wide range of unique configurations to cater to different needs. Apart from the four villas, the 38 units come in studio, one- to three-bedroom choices – all exquisitely designed.

The three-storey villas range from 3,000 to 3,700 sq. ft., all tastefully finished with signature contemporary furniture and amenities, including restful landscaped gardens, private garages and sleek European-designed kitchens.

The duplexes generously spread across two levels, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows with commanding views over the Macau Peninsula. Meanwhile, the terraco apartment comes with a lush sky garden, raising the bar of luxurious living with its space, comfort and luxury.

The heritage development has strong green credentials. Its bathroom and kitchen, for example, are fully fitted to the highest specifications with energy-efficient amenities and appliances from renowned European brands such as Kohler and Siemens.

The air-conditioning systems in common areas are fitted with environment-friendly refrigerants, and LED lightings are standard throughout the development. As well, the property features a unique, eco-friendly “green” roof with the MEP Tray Green Roof Module system certified by the United States Green Building Council. It has the combined advantage of reducing electricity consumption and heat transmission.

The Fountainside has also partnered with BMW to promote the manufacturer’s environment-friendly BMW i3 electric car, for which private charging stations are offered at the premises.

The round-the-block concierge service caters to individual needs, while the state-of-the-art gym is a boon to residents’ well-being, adding to the unique experience of luxury living at the property.
