Kelsey Homes’ real estate offering in Kottawa an ideal lifestyle hub for professionals

Comments / {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}} Views / Tuesday, 13 August 2019 00:43


Residents of Kottawa and its surroundings have much to celebrate, with the rapid infrastructure development taking place in the area, which makes owning a home in the area extremely lucrative on all counts. 

The upcoming Outer Circular Highway and direct access to Port City via the Port Access Elevated Highway will improve connectivity with Colombo’s business centre by leaps and bounds. It will facilitate and halve travelling time between Colombo and Kottawa, thereby contributing to the elimination of traffic congestion. 

Moreover, the construction of the Multimodal Transport Centre at Kottawa which opened in March this year, will offer bus and train services from the same location; making the area the most conveniently located hub in the region. 

By year 2022, when these infrastructure projects are scheduled to be completed, Kottawa will be one of the most preferred suburbs in which to be located, for professional families who seek easy access to Colombo whilst enjoying a serene lifestyle, away from Colombo’s hustle and bustle.

Kelsey Homes is pioneering a unique proposition at Kottawa (and in Sri Lanka) by focusing on compact home designs. The proposed gated community complex will consist of 30 such houses. These houses are two types of 1700sq.ft (floor area) + 600sq.ft (roof top) each. These have five and four bedrooms (and maid’s quarters). Buyers will have to pay the reservation fee of Rs. 1 million and pay a 30% advance of the purchase price within 45 days of the reservation payment and sign the Sales and Purchase agreement. The balance will be needed to be paid only upon completion of the house.

The houses in Urban Gateway are priced from Rs. 21.5 million upwards and price per sq. ft. is one of the lowest in the market and its completion is targeted by December 2020. Being in close proximity to schools, banks and supermarkets, Urban Gateway is the best choice for those looking to make their next move. 

Urban Gateway, Kottawa will offer homeowners the convenience of a gymnasium, elevated swimming pool, clubhouse and round the clock security within a gated community. This complex has been conceptualised by Kelsey Homes to cater to families where both husband and wife work and constantly on the move and seek a convenient location with security. With four and five bedroomed units, Urban Gateway is also ideal for extended families. 

In keeping with the Kelsey philosophy, all units will be equipped with high quality fittings and fixtures, kitchen cabinets with hood and hob; ACs in all the bedrooms; garden space; a covered parking space and an open plan rooftop. As a testament to the company’s confidence and commitment, all homes include a 12-month defects liability period.
