Approaching this artfully designed arrangement of stone, steel, and glass, you know you are about to see something special.
From the inside Parc Monceau - a villa named for a Paris park where the lead designer spent time as a child - seems to float in its surroundings. Its high ceilings, glass walls, and open-concept design bring the outdoors in while affording spectacular views of Kuala Lumpur from the second floor. The sense of floating in an oasis is enhanced by the swimming pool, just steps from the formal living room through tall glass doors that fold back, and the cantilevered
staircase with a koi pool beneath it.
Parc Monceau sits at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in Taman Titiwangsa, a community of luxury homes northeast of KLCC. Nearby is Titiwangsa Lake with its paddle boats for family outings, a surrounding park, a golf course and equestrian club, and a large children’s park.
Elegant, efficient, light-filled and comfortable are the words that spring to mind as one wanders through this spacious 9,100 sq. ft. home. With 8.1 m (26 ft.) floor-to-ceiling windows, living, dining and kitchen areas are joined with the outdoors. The informal living room on the second floor, a home theatre with a 126.5 inch screen and state-of-the-art audio and visual equipment, a TV room for small gatherings, a dining room that can accommodate eight—or more—combine to make this a home that will be enjoyed by every member of the family and their guests from morning to night.
In any home the kitchen is the heart of the living space and this villa is no exception, with the added virtue of being open to the living room and steps to the dining room. Outfitted with Italian SMEG refrigerators and Miele appliances that include a built-in coffee machine and electric cooker, a gourmet cook - think Joël Robuchon or Rachael Ray - has everything at his or her fingertips for preparing a five-course meal - or snacks that can be enjoyed at the long counter.
The Master Bedroom suite is ready for any tycoon; an adjoining office, walk-in closet, and a bathroom complete with spa offer the ultimate in relaxation after a long day in executive meetings or a transcontinental flight. The other four, spacious bedrooms each have a sitting or office area and walk-in closet. All bedrooms feature built-in armoires and bookcases. Each of the six bathrooms is outfitted with Villeroy & Boch and Dorn Bracht appointments. A separate
nanny or maid’s suite completes the private areas.
Making this home function as an integrated whole is US-designed Creston technology, which allows you to control every amenity from your smart phone. Turn on the air conditioner before you arrive home; adjust the blinds according to the time of day; turn on your favorite music. Program your preferences for temperature, lighting, music and TV in each room. A centralized Samsung Inverter Split Type air conditioning system uses 60 percent less energy while
keeping you cool.
Parc Monceau is one of a kind: a luxurious, modern home that envelops you in comfort while inviting you to entertain or to relax and enjoy.
