Should You Buy a House for Sale in Setiawangsa or a New Setapak Condo?


As you’re browsing through properties on the internet, a house for sale in Setiawangsa suddenly caught your eye. It’s beautiful, well-kept and checks all of your boxes- Well, at least most of them.

Not only that, but Setiawangsa itself could very much be every homeowner’s dream location when it comes to an ideal residential area. So, a dreamy house for sale in Setiawangsa sounds like a pretty good investment.

However, if you’re considering buying a house for sale in Setiawangsa, make sure you weigh all your options before you settle. So, here are some things you need to know before making that big decision to buy that Setiawangsa house for sale.


Location of Setiawangsa Houses for Sale

Setiawangsa is situated right next to Ampang and is just 4 kilometres from the city centre. This high-end eastern suburb in Kuala Lumpur makes staying in a house for sale in Setiawangsa a dream for city dwellers, especially those who are working in the city itself.

Many Malaysians and expatriates who reside in the area favour Setiawangsa for its privacy and quiet green surroundings. Puncak Setiawangsa and Bukit Setiawangsa are the perfect examples of neighbourhoods located high up on hills and are surrounded by tranquillity and nature. Bukit Setiawangsa has even been dubbed the Hollywood Hills of Kuala Lumpur. So, if you love the privacy and being amongst nature, then finding yourself a house for sale in Setiawangsa or even a Setiawangsa condo would be ideal.

However, if you prefer immersing yourself in both a lively urban community and at the same time, wanting to be close to the great outdoors, then maybe you might want to consider a place at Setapak instead.

Setapak is another major suburb in Kuala Lumpur and is also close to downtown KL, making it suitable for urban dwellers who want easy access to all that Kuala Lumpur has to offer, from work to play.

M Astra by Mah Sing Group is a new development project of serviced residences that might pique your interest. Location-wise, it is situated right between the city centre and the magnificent Titiwangsa range.

M Astra offers convenience for gym-goers as there is a fresh new and spacious gym called Gym Box Setapak right next door, and M Astra is just a walking distance of 650m to the KLS Futsal Sports Centre.

Additionally, nature enthusiasts would be excited to know that there are many hot spots just within a 6km radius of M Astra. The Danau Kota Lake Park is only 1km away while Zoo Negara is about 4.1km away from M Astra. Besides that, Bukit Tabur and Klang Gates Quartz Ridge are just 6km away.

So, if you would prefer to keep your options open, you can take into consideration a Setiawangsa house for sale or a new Setapak serviced residence such as the M Astra.


Accessibility of Setiawangsa Houses for Sale

As enticing as Setiawangsa is as an ideal residential location for home buyers, one crucial thing to take note of before buying that Setiawangsa house for sale is that there are only a few major highways that connect the suburb to other towns and cities in the area. Though this means that traffic won’t be as chaotic, accessible major highways are only limited to the MRR2 and DUKE highway that connects Setiawangsa to cities and towns such as Mont Kiara and Segambut.

On the bright side, Setiawangsa and its surrounding areas offer many conveniences for its residents such as medical facilities, schools, grocery stores, restaurants and recreational areas. So, seeking a house for sale in Setiawangsa or even just a condo in Setiawangsa might not be a bad idea.

Nevertheless, if you look at Setapak and what this part of Kuala Lumpur has to offer, considering a house in Setapak does have its advantages too. This is because Setapak is well-connected and highly accessible as it is served by excellent road systems such as the Duta-Ulu Kelang Expressway (DUKE) highway, Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway, Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2), with pulses of the metropolis like KLCC, Bukit Bintang and Tun Razak Exchange, which are only 12-15 minutes away. The much-anticipated MRT3 Circle Line will also be accessible at Setapak in the future.

The new and upcoming M Astra development is also surrounded by the same conveniences (or even more) such as medical facilities, local and international schools, hypermarkets, eateries and shopping malls.

The M Astra of Setapak might not be the Hollywood Hills of Kuala Lumpur but it does win when it comes to better connectivity and conveniences.
