This week, we’re back in the East at Frankel Avenue. My first thought on seeing the area was “Hmmm, this reader has a bigger budget!” If you’re wondering why, the tour of Frankel Avenue was actually requested by a reader and many of the houses there are big semi-Ds and detached houses. Within “Frankel proper”, I’m only looking at the streets with “Frankel” in them, most of the terrace houses are confined to Frankel Terrace, which is the road closest to the busy Changi road (it’s the noisiest of the Frankel streets!)
As there are lots of landed houses in this area, I concentrated my tour around the area with streets with “Frankel” in the name: Frankel Terrace, Frankel Close, Frankel Walk, Frankel Drive, and Frankel Street. These traverse Frankel Avenue perpendicularly. On the West of Frankel Avenue, they are cul-de-sacs that overlook a large drain and Siglap Park Connector. On the East, the streets lead onto Siglap Plain and Siglap Avenue.
When I checked the prices of the houses here, the cheapest was around $5 million at the time of writing. (There were a couple of cheaper houses that were advertised as “Frankel Estate” but, on checking the exact location, were really more in the Kembangan area.)
