Solaya Lipa dazzles Lipa City as it kickstarts Christmas celebration

Adding yet another gem to the progressive Batangas, Solaya Lipa kickstarts the holiday seasons with its first ever Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony.

A 25-foot Christmas tree dots the sky of the area while its thousands silver twinkling lights cascade beautifully to its grounds. This grand celebration is a steady progression to the new normal way of going about our holidays—cautious but with the undeniable Filipino warmth. The number 25 holds a special significance as Taft Properties, the real estate developer behind the high-end, iconic and forward-thinking residential condominiums in Cebu, celebrates its silver anniversary with multiple grand Christmas tree lighting ceremonies across the country.

This event is also one of the highlights of Barangay Tangway’s festivities. The area welcomed Solaya Lipa early this year. The developing gated community offers two-storey residential homes with lot sizes ranging from 100 to 200 sqm for the discerning homeseekers who likes to get away from the buzz of the city. Its living spaces are expandable so homeowners can make their home their own piece of paradise everyday.

The solihiya—a rattan weaving technique—architectural accent makes these homes truly distinctive. While the color palette and overall look hail back to traditional Filipino design, it also has a new normal home feature like sanitation bench where homeowners can disinfect their items before fully entering their family’s living area. This is just one of Taft Properties’ signature brand of purposeful home ideas, what they call Crafted Comforts. Through many years, they have fashioned these little features that make up more than the sum of all its parts. These enable Taft Properties to give more value to the living experience of its homeowners. This come in the form of lower light switches and toddler handrails for the convenience of kids and people with limited mobility, door closer and lever-type door handles for easier and quieter access, and other toilet and bath features that are oftentimes overlooked or scrimped on. 

The homes are also instinctively designed to welcome light and the cool Lipa climate for a naturally relaxing vibe.  Lipa City boasts of cooler climate because of its elevation of a little over 1,000 feet above sea level—that puts it behind Tagaytay City and Baguio City. The mountains Maculot and Malarayat shield the city from natural disasters. This makes Lipa City one of the best home options outside of Metro Manila.

This three-hectare project offers a quiet, low-density neighborhood with open spaces and tree-lined roads where one can soak up the sun and experience an elevated home life—just as the name of the community suggests. Solaya is a combination of the words sol or sun in Spanish, and ilaya or northern/upper part in Batangueño.

Taft Properties is one with the Filipinos in securing homes that truly feel like theirs.  They deliver Filipino homeseekers the Total Taft Quality hallmarks of world-class architecture and engineering; zero-defect home handover; and delightful customer journey from start to finish. From Cebu to Luzon, for its 25th anniversary, homeseekers have a host of payment options and promos that can make the goal of owning a home achievable.
