Homebuyers seek second homes in Cebu’s premier highlands

More and more Filipinos are looking for second homes near beaches or highlands.

This is because these places offer the best of both worlds — the possibility of keeping life’s conveniences close while living within a safe, spacious, lush green enclave away from crowded city centers. 

AboitizLand knows this well, making its Foressa Mountain Town in Cebu an attractive investment for homebuyers. 

“While Cebu is known to have white sand beaches, Cebu also boasts of mountainous rolling terrains. Foressa is a master-planned mountain town that will give you the luxury of owning a home close to nature and a unique premium investment that will surely appreciate in value through the years,” said David Rafael, AboitizLand president and CEO. 

Sprawling at 540 hectares, the Aboitiz-owned  West Cebu Estate is an integrated economic center credited with transforming Balamban, Cebu into a first-class municipality, renowned as the shipping capital of the Philippines. 

Within this township lies the lush landscape of Foressa Mountain Town which has been gaining traction as a top prime investment.

Everyday is set in nature

Unique to Foressa Mountain Town is the easy access to nature, as the development’s star amenity. With the scenic views of the mountains and the sea, being home to over 800 species of trees and 600,000 sqm of protected riverside areas, the property encourages its vecinos or homeowners to surrender and immerse themselves to the luxuries of nature’s spectacles as soon as they wake up to performing their daily tasks. 

Families and friends can also explore beautifully-made bike and hike trails while living their active lifestyle.

Central to the 257-hectare luxury development are its partially launched phase, Light, and soon-to-launch property phases that embody the beauty of its natural surroundings: Water, Earth, and Air. 

Your own piece of nature

With the same tranquil excitement of the first light of day flooding through an open window, Foressa Mountain Town opens its Light Phase B to eager property buyers on March 5. This launch comes right after the swift turnover of its Light Phase A, with more people realizing the value of homes away from the city and closer to lush greenery and boundless open spaces.

Light B comprises 19 hectares total, of which 49 percent are open space, and 117 lots are available. The average lot cut is 829 sqm, with a minimum of 399 sqm and a maximum of 2,040 sqm. 

Besides offering a variety of lot sizes, Foressa differentiates its lot types to suit the market’s diverse needs and preferences – from hillside lots that offer a distant view of the river or lots near parks and amenity areas. 

Riverside Ridge lots offer an average of 1,499 sqm per lot cut. Lots in this segment have a downhill feature that allows future vecinos to enjoy the view of the mountain, proximity to the river, and the Foressa Lodge, the property’s main pavilion. 

If you prefer proximity to parks and areas for leisurely walks, choose from the available Parkside Premium lots. Each lot cut is approximately 800 sqm with a 200-sqm extension option for those who want to build their own gardens and patios. 

For those who prefer lot sizes within 400 to 700 sqm, take a look at the Hillside and Avenue lots. These segments feature uphill and downhill lots that offer a vantage view of the West Cebu Estate and the Tanon Strait in key areas in the eastern section.

Whether you want an expansive kitchen, high-ceiling living rooms, dedicated play area and homeschool room for the kids, a bespoke home office or a hobby area for your passion project, or a sprawling garden, you can turn your home vision board into reality and personalize down to the last detail at ForessaMountain Town.

Living a dynamic life

Foressa Mountain Town is also home to serene, well-curated, spacious, and modern common amenities so that residents can bond with family and friends without sacrificing health and safety. Vecinos can enjoy a modern community built around the serene ambiance of West Cebu’s highlands and deep forests.

 As the residential enclave of West Cebu Estate, the integrated economic estate offers easy access to top commercial and retail establishments.

You can wake up to the sounds of nature and savor the fresh morning breeze, and just a short drive away is a town center to let you experience the convenience of an urban lifestyle. 

Viable investment

Whether one is looking to create their dream family home and reconnect with nature or hold onto an investment to last a lifetime as they benefit from the inevitable growth of the land value year after year, Foressa Mountain Town is a viable investment as proven by the development’s property value appreciation that has risen by 86.3 percent from its launch price in 2017.

A promising growth awaits while you enjoy the unparalleled magnificence of nature combined with the conveniences of the contemporary world at Foressa Mountain Town, a life that is perfectly balanced.
