Bin Tong Park Good Class Bungalow (GCBA) – District 10, Singapore

Bin Tong Park is probably my favourite GCBA of the lot. There is just something charming about its winding and hilly surroundings. It helps that its (relatively inaccessible) location amidst other GCBAs (Belmont Park, Rebecca Park and Leedon Park) affords the homes here more peace and tranquility. The origins of its name comes from the translation of “east citizen”.

Nevertheless, if you drive (which 100% of owners here probably do), Holland Village is close by with NYPS, RGPS and Henry Park within a 2km radius.

Famous owners past and present include OSIM’s billionaire founder Ron Sim, descendants of former Ngee Ann Kongsi President the late Lim Kee Ming whose son is low profile businessman Kaling Lim, who was an early investor and mentor to Razer with his stake said to be worth $1bn now. He is also Chairman of his family’s century old business Lim Teck Lee and founding investor of NASDAQ listed Premisys Communications.

Latest transactions include a 28,111sqft home sold for $37.6m ($1,338psf) in Sept ’20. 5 Bin Tong, a colonial styled single storey 28,109sqft house had an asking price of $42m ($1,494psf) in 2019. 65 Bin Tong , a 23,269sqft GCB was sold for $48m ($2,063psf). It was recently rebuilt by Ong&Ong for $10m and originally bought for $15m in 2007.
