Landed Housing in Singapore
Landed housing in Singapore are residential developments that are of low-rise or low density. There are a few types of landed housing in Singapore.
They can be categorised by their land title. Properties under such categorisation include terraces, semi-detached houses and bungalows or detached houses.
A terrace house is a house on a lot which forms part of a row of at least 3 dwelling houses. Each terrace house is separated from the other by a wall.
A semi-detached house is a dwelling house that is partially attached on one side to any number of other units. This can be another semi-detached house or a terrace house (which is then known as a corner terrace).
A detached house or bungalow is a free standing dwelling unit within a plot of land. The plot can vary in size. Good Class Bungalows have a minimum plot size of 1,400m² while detached houses have a plot size of not less than 400m².
Landed housing in Singapore can also be categorised by strata titles, which means there can be strata terrace houses, strata semi-detached houses, strata detached houses or bungalows and mixed strata landed housing. Cluster houses and townhouses are examples of these.
Landed homes are found only in particular areas like District 15, 16, 17 or 19. In addition, there are only certain areas which allow the building of Good Class Bungalows. Due to the scarcity of land in Singapore as well as limited supply of landed housing, the demand for them is usually good. Many aspire to own a landed property in Singapore. Their prices tend to fall within a higher range which limits their affordability.
