Tagaytay Highlands offers new features

Tagaytay Highlands, the country’s premiere mountain resort, has reinvented it self with the immersion of several developments that aim to cater the young professionals, millennials without waning its fabulous image when it was first introduced 24 years ago.
At present, there are five new features that future owners can avail at the 1,200-hectare facility—Horizon Terraces, Sycamore Heights, Pick and Pay, Saratoga and Plantation Hills.
The first is a condo-townhouse in single and double bedroom with price range between 40 square meters to 66 square meters. Prices at the Horizon ranges between P9.6 million to P7.6 million, said Mabe de Goitia, AVP for marketing of Belle Corp.
Sycamore Heights is a place in the sprawling resort where contemporary Asian-theme houses are found. Lot sizes at this property ranges between 300 square meter to 600 square meter. Price of properties ranges between P5 million to P11 million.
Additional attraction at Sycamore is the nearer view of Taal lake and volcano.
Saratoga, meanwhile, is a territory where American-themed houses are found. Lot prices are between P18 million to P21 million while bare lots starting price is P4 million.
De Goitia said not everything at Tagaytay Highlands are about business as it recently opened its Pick and Pay, a two-hectare lot lent to farmers where organic vegetables are planted. All the proceeds at the lot go to the farmers and the Highlands only get a small fraction for the water bill.
Plantation Hills is a pocket farm where any member-resident can purchase and use as farming place for their chosen crops.
De Goitia said Tagaytay Highlands is proving that its image hasn’t waned since it was built more than two decades ago. At present, its Woodlands Point remains the signature dwelling area in the iconic mountain resort.
Properties at Woodlands are worth P45 million to P56 million. Phillip Medina, marketing director of the mountain resort, said the main selling point of their property are the “location, climate and exclusivity.”
When asked to where he compares Highlands to any place in the world, the director said: “Maybe Genting Highlands.” The place is one of the most exclusive upscale residence found in the upper portion of Malaysia not far from Kuala Lumpur.
Medina said utilities expenses alone at Tagaytay Highlands don’t go below P100 million per month. “Our expenses to maintain the quality of our place is bigger than in many municipalities,” the director told business reporters during the tour yesterday.
He said there are remaining land banks in the Highlands that are set for development in due time. The cable car found in the area will be operational within the year, he added.
Tagaytay Highlands is the first ever exclusive mountain resort in the country now majority owned by Belle Corp.
