Situated on the southern part of Malaysia, Johor is the 5th largest state in Malaysia and its strategic location (being just a 20-minute drive from Singapore), makes this tropical state in Malaysia a premier holiday home location in Asia.
Till a decade ago Johor‘s real estate market was sluggish and uneventful to say the least and Kuala Lumpur was the epicentre of Malaysia‘s real estate growth story. However Johor covered a lot of ground after the rise of the Iskandar Development Region (IDR), which can be described as major game changer.
Today experts in the industry compare both Singapore and Johor’s symbiotic relationship to that of Hong Kong and Shenzhen, a model they say, “…where both sides leverage on each other to further their respective development agenda.” Today Johor’s borderless world is also seen as a major reason to its growth in the real estate sector with both developers and buyers alike showing great confidence in its market which is reflected on the property prices and rental rates.
In this article we will take a look at one of the first gated community in the area launched after the IDR came into force. Situated in the heart of thriving Iskandar region of Johor, Horizon Hills, spread over a area 1,200 acres in Nusajaya is a combination of luxurious golf residences with a private golf course designed by the world-renowned designer, Ross Watson.
Built on the hilly landscape of Johor, each residence at Horizon Hills has been carefully designed to complement the existing landscape and moreover its low density construction with about five units per acre combined with lots of landscaped greenery makes it one of the best development in the state to buy a holiday home.
The development is spread in 13 blocks, each of them having its own identity in terms of architecture and design and have been aptly named like, The Golf which boasts of luxury homes within the fairways of the golf course; The Peak with homes perched on high ground with a natural forest backdrop; or The Expat Village, a block made specifically for expatriates, etc.
The development comprises thematic residences, an exclusive resident’s-only country clubhouse and an award-winning 18-hole golf course, a commercial district and schools. The recreational facilities within Horizon Hills include parks, lakes, thematic gardens, wetlands and a 30km cycling track.
