Top 8 Houses with Views of Greenery in Singapore (Including Eco-friendly Features!)

A study by the NUS Centre for Nature-based Climate Solutions reported that across the 2010s, the price of an HDB flat would increase by an estimated $553 for every 1% increase of green foliage within 200m of the flat.

This number jumped even higher to an $883 increase for flats between 200m to 1km with views of green spaces. That’s because residents prefer houses with views from a distance without noise pollution.

But Dr Lee Nai Jia, Head of Real Estate Intelligence, Data and Software Solutions at the PropertyGuru Group noted that other critical factors such as proximity to schools, shopping centres and MRT stations can greatly affect both the value of a home and the eventual happiness of the residents in the unit.

Houses with Views of Nature: Inspired to Live Sustainably?

Houses with views of open spaces or sweeping landscapes of flora and fauna are constant reminders of why we should adopt sustainable habits to conserve Mother Earth.

Most local neighbourhoods are now adopting sustainability into their urban planning, whether it is wind simulation, inbuilt cooling systems within housing blocks, or waste and water management. But we can also do our part by becoming more sustainable at home and incorporating small lifestyle changes like walking within the estate to the grocery store, recycling our plastic bottles and bringing our own grocery bags.
