1. if you want yr house to be just like normal housing estates, sooner or later it will become what you now called unmaintained houses, a sign of bad location.
2. more road access also mean more traffic in and out of the place.
3. if you see western countries, most if not all houses are without gates....and people there still keep pets. its all about how you train your pets and not let your pets to train you.
tell me one thing, if your neighbour home is without gate, will you day day go there and peep at what your neighbour doing inside the house?????
4. when you bought a house, make sure the built up and layout are suitable for you now and near future. you don't buy a house that is much smaller than what you expectation and do reno kau kau. this is pretty old and dated thinking. always wanted the biggest and extraordinary home in the street.....bragging rite perhaps?
the corner unit is meant for you to create a nice outdoor space. Not every sen you paid for indoor need to be your indoor space.
1- i meant is those shop/houses before going into EH
2- at least it should have alternative access, imagine the road is maintained or blocked, more roads means more traffic is not a bad thing.
3- lol, westerner, they dont gate cos they choose not to and their backyards are gated la, fyi, the landed in EH does not and fyi not all pets in western are trained. not sure if you have ever went to view the house or not in EH, both front and back cant be gated...so tell me, you dare to rear a dog just like that? seriously? probably the dog not the issue but more on the people. the question that you asked.......the sales guy told us, and we laughed. we wont know who we are staying with, there will be people peeping.......we wont know, assuming 100% of the buyers there are 100% 'normal' but then, even normal people are curious. no offence.
4- built and layout might be suitable but doesnt mean it suits our taste but to be honest, how many does not renovate? lol
