Yea, Dnest walk in wardrobe concept is good.

pros & cons of toilet in bedroom. Guest have to pass through bedroom to get to toilet.
Some like Jack & Jill kinda toilet concept. Some prefer toilet in bedroom. Some prefer toilet at Living/dining area.

As for me I prefer toilet to be at living/dinning area. 80% of the 1 bedders in my development are Jack & Jill toilet. Mine is the minority where toilet is outside of bedroom area.
Guest donít have to enter my bedroom to get to toilet.
Yea... I got a 1 bedder too and my toilet is inside my bedroom. There are units in my dev that has toilets outside in the living room but no windows.. I prefer 1 with window for ventilation. So pros and cons.. See which is more impt to you.

Bingo! As a single guy, 1 bedder is ideal enough. I lazy to clean de so no need so much space.

Yes went for viewing at d'nest. The walk-in wardrobe is interesting. But valid point from you guys regarding the accessibility of the toilet.

Am also looking at areas less east. Anyone has views on the following:

Urban vista
The glades
Optima @ tanah merah

The glades is more expensive than the other two.

The Tanah Merah location is much much better and MRT at doorstep
Of the 3 projects I prefer optima
Very well maintained, quiet with fewer units
But I would not choose main road facing due to 4 tracks
Urban vista is cramp and personally donít like how it looks too
Glades nice but abit cramp but better than urban vista, new and sea facing units really quite and unblocked
Donít forget too a new project with ground floor retail coming up in the next quarter

Tenah Merah is a nice place to stay (I.e convenience to mrt, jewel, hawker, tons of Malls, schools and CBP) like what others had mentioned. But do avoid those mrt track facing units and urban vista loft units.

Glades is definitely more expensive than optima as they are 5yo apart.

What's so bad about the loft units?
And how terrible are the noises from the tracks?

Do a search at 99.co and u will see a number of urban vista unit making losses. The reason is simple, who would want to keep climbing up and down the narrow loft steps to their bed? Most buyers would prefer to have a normal 1 bedder layout with proper bedroom size.

As tenah Merah mrt is expanding to 4 tracks, the frequency of trains passing by is going to increase.
So do avoid track facing units. This is the same if u r buying Bedok residence which is one station away from tenah Merah.
