Investing in an upscale residential development invokes careful planning and decision making. It may be the first big venture for the family, so there are many crucial things to consider.
Paolo Cayton and Elsandra Neri Dagondon-Cayton, a young, successful couple with a growing family, thought things over when they were choosing their own home. After judicious research and comparison of various development projects, the many superior qualities of The Enclave Alabang by luxury real estate brand Filigree easily met their criteria. They are now among the proud and satisfied property owners at The Enclave Alabang.
The Enclave Alabang is in an unrivaled upmarket location along the primary Daang Hari Road, allowing for ease of access via major thoroughfares like the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX),Skyway, and the Muntinlupa-Cavite Expressway or MCX, was the winning feature for the couple.
“She’s from the south, I come from the north,” says Paolo. “Makati, where I work, is closer to The Enclave Alabang. I don’t have to worry about the heavy traffic anymore!” Adds Elsandra, “The deciding factor was really the location, which is close to my work and my daughter’s school.”
The Enclave Alabang sits in 10.5 hectares of low-density, verdant environs, which also attracted the Caytons to the project. Forty percent of The Enclave Alabang is generously dedicated to lush, open spaces, which is even more highlighted with the development’s distinctive tropical modern design architecture. Its centerpiece is the Central Park, which boasts of rich flora, a mini man-made lagoon with calming waters, and a watch tower. This masterfully landscaped focal point offers a children’s playground, ample seating areas, and an expansive green space for outdoor activities like biking, jogging, and walking—perfect for some quality time with the family.
“The mixture of modernity and nature is really welcome,” shares Paolo. “Where I come from, all the establishments are just concrete, so it’s nice to go home and feel that you’re not in the city.”
As The Enclave Alabang puts a premium on exclusivity and privacy, it takes pride in an intimate, close-knit community, which families with discerning tastes seek in a bustling metropolis.
It also helped that a world-class design team was behind The Enclave Alabang—award winning firms H1 Architecture, BUDJI+ROYAL Architecture+Design, and AECOM.
“Having renowned designers on board really gave us the assurance that what they show you on the AVP will really happen,” explains Paolo. “Designers have a reputation to live up to, and if it doesn’t happen, it’s their name on the line.”
The couple was also very much pleased with the relationship they have with the representatives of Filigree.
“Everyone was helpful. I didn’t have a hard time reaching them through phone or e-mail. The village manager is very helpful, too,” says Elsandra. “So far, everything matches the branding, of what Filigree stands for.”
No doubt, the Cayton family has clearly found their ideal community. With The Enclave Alabang’s exceptional location, masterplan, design, amenities and service, it continues to gain the trust of a highly-selective clientele desiring modern luxury developments that promise to deliver value for money.
