That's why need plan
Cause their balcony is inside the hdb itself.
So meaning the one with balcony are 96sqm instead of 93sqm.
And then so their living room has a big window that's able to open kind.
Which is the kind I like. But then the bomb shelter hopefully have those in living room. Cause I don't like those beside toilet.

thanks windwaver.

now then I got the meaning of what's 'inside outside'.
forgot the layout plan of cove that the balcony is inside. I prefer outside.

my parents' house (BTO of 2003), bomb shelter is beside the toilet.

My bf and I can't seem to agree on the stacks we want. We both want a balcony unit at Sunrise - we went down to the area to take a look around and we like how scenic and calming it is.

He prefer stacks 96 or 100 because it is slightly higher (8 storeys) and it has unobstructed views while I prefer stacks 124 or 120. He doesn't like 124 or 120 because of the playground at the bottom so it will be noisy seeing as it's only 6 storeys high. He also thinks that there wouldn't be much privacy if he hangs out at the balcony because of the units opposite at Sunrise I (even though I told him the houses are actually being built at a slant so it's not directly opposite and your neighbours opposite can't really stare into your house).

I'm not a fan of stacks 96 or 100 because I don't like the idea of an eating house on the 1st floor. I'm afraid it will be smelly plus I don't want unwanted "pets" like rats or cockroaches. I think stacks 124 or 120 has a nicer view rather than 96 or 100.

What do you guys think?

Geraldine,
as long as there's balcony, I don't really mind in or outside LOL.

cupcakee,

I can't comment on much.
yes I do agree with your bf as it's slightly higher at 8th. and I know that its not facing directly to WS1. I shelve off the idea of choosing stack 96/100
due to the eating house on the 1St floor.

but judging from what you said, since both of you like how scenic and calming it is, why not northshore cove?
because of the chimneys at gudang?

Yeah haha, we both can't agree on the same thing so we decided to wait it out once the selection process starts. A bit crazy but I even told him that we should go to a BTO block in Sengkang/Punggol area and go up to the 8th floor to see how it is like

Wanted Northshore Cove actually and yes you're right, I'm a bit concerned over the chimneys. I don't know whether it will look unsightly but we haven't been to the jetty area to judge for ourselves. Planning to do it soon to see whether we're okay with the view or not. If we are, I think we're happy to take a high floor on stack 159!

Hi cupcakeee, I've had a quick look and this is what I think

96 - NE/E facing (good winds, no west sun), corner service yard, excellent view into Halus and Sungei Serangoon, eating house may be noisy.

100 - Not a fan, I rather take 96 unless 96 is out.

120 - NE facing (good winds, no west sun), corridor service yard, excellent view into Waterway and Sungei Serangoon, ramp at waterway is elevated thus you may have a privacy issue.

124 - NE facing (good winds, no west sun), corridor service yard, excellent view into Waterway and Sungei Serangoon, ramp at waterway is elevated thus you may have a privacy issue, noise from PG.

To me, it's a fight between stacks 96 and 120. Do take note the ramp in front of stacks 120, 122, 124, 126 is elevated and there is plenty of traffic from bicycles and joggers.
