Located strategically on Andaman Island, Arica caters to residents who value a balanced lifestyle, with meticulously planned amenities and landscaping throughout the vicinity.
Residents will be surrounded by the fresh sea breeze and lush landscaping with over 90 acres of greenery on the island. The development utilises various strategies to enhance energy efficiency, including the use of Sarnatherm XPS roof insulation boards and tinted glass with optimal thermal properties, maximising natural ventilation.
Andaman Island itself has also received the GreenRE Platinum Provisional Certification within the township category, demonstrating its commitment to green living.
Speaking with Mr Michael Tan, Director of Development & Construction Management, he said:
“In Penang, the award-winning Seri Tanjung Pinang (STP) development is the island’s first masterplanned seafront development that has now become a thriving community to locals as well as expatriates from over 30 nationalities. Following the successful delivery of STP, E&O has gone on to introduce Andaman with its maiden launch in 2022 and Arica in 2023.”
Make This Serene, Well-Rounded Sanctuary Your Home
Whether it’s young couples, small families who are first-time home buyers, or empty nesters seeking a cosy post-retirement home, Arica is the perfect fit. Here are three valuable tips for first-time home buyers from Mr. Michael Tan:
- Be an early mover to enjoy the advantage of getting good appreciation from the purchase.
- Seize the opportunity to own a ready-to-move-in home where Arica is crafted to meet first home buyers’ needs.
- Location plays a pivotal role in the decision-making process. Andaman Island, strategically situated and easily accessible via two bridges from Penang Island, is an ideal choice. These bridges are conveniently located at Gurney Bay and E&O’s Seri Tanjung Pinang township, providing seamless access to Andaman.
Every milestone deserves the best and Arica is ready to help you make the most of it. And not forgetting, Moonshine Bakehouse is an aesthetic cafe on Andaman Island serving brunch, cakes, and coffee all in a calming and spacious ambiance.
