Despite today’s fast-paced lifestyle, many Filipino homeseekers still value traditional family values in looking for the ideal property – one that is comprised of spacious surroundings, and provides exclusivity, comfort and security in promoting family closeness and togetherness.
Especially in city centers and progressive areas outside Metro Manila, a suburban way of life is still very much prized and aspired for. These are some of the foremost qualities that Miriam Bautista, a housewife and entrepreneur, looks for in investing in a property for her family.
“We’ve always been simple in our family. We’re happy with just being able to spend time together at home. This is why high quality houses in a peaceful neighborhood is a priority for me in looking for an investment that will benefit my children and grandchildren,” said Bautista.
Out of the properties that caught her attention, one subdivision development along Molino Boulevard in Cavite stood out for Miriam and her husband, Larry. This is the 5.5-hectare Soluna which is developed by GeoEstate Development Corp. particularly for urban dwellers who want a property worthy of their years of hard work for their family.
The Bautistas were among the first few who bought a single-detached house in Soluna during its pre-selling phase.
“I immediately felt good about the place. At that time, I knew it will be a good home for my family and grandchildren. It’s private and secure, catering to less than 200 families,” she explained.
The Bautista family owns a Selena unit, which is Soluna’s two-storey home model that has a floor area of 82 sqm and lot area of 120 sqm. Their home has three bedrooms, three toilet and baths, a maid’s room with its own toilet and bath, and a covered garage for two cars.
As soon as the premium amenities are finished, which are composed of a spacious clubhouse, swimming pools for adults and children, outdoor gardens and a playground, Miriam and Larry together with their son will start living in their house at Soluna.
Scheduled to be completed in the coming months, the central amenity area will also be mere walking distance away from all the houses, hence, making it easy for everyone to visit.
Caviteños by heart, the couple has three children and two granddaughters. Miriam is looking forward to the time when she can invite the whole family to their home.
“I always put my family at the heart of everything I do. Homes that suit the dynamic needs of a growing family have been my guiding principle when I looked for a new house. Luckily, we found Soluna which is a home worth passing on in the family.”
The houses exhibit modern theme with classic, minimalist features so that the design will be relevant for future generations of homeowners. Soluna’s pre-designed and pre-built homes that range from 64 to 112 sqm in living space include a “flexi-build option” which can be utilized to build additional room for a growing family.
Apart from the houses, the accessibility is also ideal for the Bautistas, as it makes it easy for them to access key establishments such as the market or the kids’ schools, or visit relatives in Cavite or Manila.
