The deep dark world of the World Wide Web often presents you with facts and revelations (so to say) that astonish you and of course, pull you into an endless spiral of clicks and likes. One such recent revelation for me was the existence of what is fondly known as the “Oscars” of the real estate industry – a fact that had managed to never cross my path earlier. The award, as it turns out, is originally called the FIABCI World Prix d’Excellence Award, and claims to celebrate the most innovative real estate developments from around the world. Curious to know more, I started searching for an Indian development that has been conferred with the award, and hence began my saga of awe and wonder with Prestige Silver Oak.
And the award goes to…
Prestige Silver Oak had its own Oscar moment in 2016, when it received the revered award at the FIABCI 67th World Congress held in Panama. It, in fact, defeated 40 countries across the globe to emerge as the winner. A simple Google search would show why.
The development adheres to all the features that define homes built by the Prestige Group – finesse in design, uncompromised quality and an absolutely world-class living experience. Located on the ECC Road, Bangalore, it is spread across 17 lush acres and offers independent villas and a small block of low-rise apartments. The 146 villas come in 8 different designs, nestled in their own private gardens. However, for those who prefer the sociability of an apartment to the privacy of a villa, it also has 32 apartments in store.
Where the old meets the new
Interestingly, the development claims to have brought to life a “gentlemen’s agreement”, which allows a time and place for both the old and the new to meet halfway. What is captivating is that the designs reflect a Middle Eastern influence with all the comfort and luxury of modern day living. In order to maintain the serenity of the landscape, the land cover is only 30%, thereby ensuring tranquillity all around the structures. At the same time, all structures are equipped with state-of-the-art electronic security systems and manned security. Every home is equipped with a video door phone and is connected via an intercom to the security cabin, blending modern day security into the rustic aura that its homes create.
Besides, among other facilities, the Clubhouse features a state-of-the-art gymnasium, a spacious swimming pool, a multipurpose hall, a squash court, a well-equipped health club, a badminton court, and an indoor sports area. The Development also houses a convenience store, thereby enhancing the self-sufficiency and convenience.
At the end of my little R&D project, I was convinced that Prestige Silver Oak definitely deserved an Oscar moment of its own. If you’re still curious and want to know more about the development, you may visit their website, which contains all details you might need to make one of these homes your own.
