The Luxury of Space in a 1-Bedroom Home

One of the major considerations of homebuyers when purchasing a condominium unit is the luxury of space where you can experience privacy and exclusivity. The layout of an executive studio, where you can already see everything when you enter the unit, oftentimes do not provide this privacy expectation even though there are options to put partitions. Adding walls or partitions to a studio unit can possibly make it look cramped and it may hinder the flow of natural sunlight to your pad.


A two-bedroom unit may be ideal, especially for bigger families, but for individual dwellers or starting families, this may either be too big or too expensive. That is why a one-bedroom condo unit remains to be one of the most preferred unit layouts by homebuyers—the space may just be right, and the price tag is reasonable.


Unfortunately, there are some developers who tend to offer one-bedroom units at unreasonable floor areas. Imagine acquiring a one-bedroom condo with the size of only 20 sqm up to 23 sqm—your home would definitely feel congested and you could not freely move around due to limited space. Your residence might feel like a dormitory or a hostel more than a luxurious condominium unit.


In Quezon City for instance, most high-rise and mid-rise condominium projects offer one-bedroom units with average floor areas from 26 sqm up to 38 sqm. But one high-rise residential development on this side of Metro Manila stands out, not only with its exceptional development concept, but as well as the luxury of space that dwellers can experience when they opt for a one-bedroom home. This community is no other than the New York-style Manhattan Gardens at Araneta City, the first-ever transit-oriented and garden-inspired high-rise community in the Philippines.


Since 2006, when the first tower of Manhattan Gardens was launched for pre-selling, it revolutionized the standards of condominium living in the country. The advantage of being at the crossroads of MRT Line 3, LRT Line 2, buses and other public modes of transportation, as well as the unique elevated garden setting and world-class amenities it introduced, have made this development one of the most sought-after addresses in Metro Manila. With its 12th out of 18 towers now rising, it has continuously reshaped the cityscape in this highly central and accessible location.


Over the years, its sensible and well-thought out unit mix appealed to the housing market that caters to various types of homeowners—young urban professionals, students, starting and growing families, and even investors who would have their condo units rented out or resold. You can choose from executive studios, one-bedroom up to two-bedroom suites, bi-level garden villas, and penthouse units. Moreover, all the units in the recent towers that have been opened for sale come with their balconies or patios, allowing residents to have their private garden or an extra space with an excellent vista of the metropolitan skyline or the mountain ranges in the east.


For homebuyers seeking for a one-bedroom home, they may choose ready-for-occupancy units at Manhattan Heights Towers B and C with an expansive floor area of 55.40 sqm to 56.50 sqm. You get to enjoy a spacious bedroom with its own balcony and an in-room toilet and bath. Your living and dining areas have a lot of extra space which you can maximize. You may dedicate a corner to serve as your work-from-home nook or your kids’ online school remote classroom. Or maybe you can have an entertainment or play area, a fitness station, or another sleeping den. Your second balcony can serve as your al fresco living or dining area where you can chill while treating yourself to a panoramic view.


If you’re not in a hurry to move-in soon, then you can opt for Manhattan Plaza Tower 2, where you can choose one-bedroom units ranging from 54 sqm to 54.50 sqm. The toilet and bath will just be right next to your expansive bedroom, and this unit also comes with a separate room for your house help with her own bathroom. Like in the RFO towers, there’s a balcony as well in your bedroom and another one in the living area. Your kitchen area is enclosed and you can make the most out of your space in the living and dining areas—thanks to this development’s intelligently designed space planning.
