Matilda Sundeck is a recently completed HDB project in Punggol.
It’s got a fascinating history that pays homage to a century-old bungalow in Punggol that had a reputation for being “haunted”.
The home was once owned by one of the wealthiest Eurasian families in Singapore who owned opium farms (then legal) in Singapore.
As you’ll see in the tour, certain aspects of the home were featured as part of the architecture of the development, including the shelter rooftops that are shaped like the roof from Matilda House, as well as the square blocks that were found in the Bungalow.
The development may not have amenities right at its doorstep, however, you do at least have one present just the opposite.
This is a lot more convenient than some larger developments that have amenities within the compound but also takes about 5 minutes to reach.
In terms of connectivity to parks, while there isn’t a park within its immediate vicinity, residents can reach the Park Connector in a matter of minutes – especially now with the new path on the west side.
