This 600+ sqm. residence on more than 3200 square-meter of land was built between 2013 and 2014 on the highest lot in the Mandala 2 Residential Farm Estate at Timberland Heights providing 270 degree uninterrupted views of Metro Manila and the Antipolo hills.
It was the last private residence designed by the late National Architect of the Philippines, Francisco Mañosa, before he retired.
The property comprises both enclosed and outdoor living space on multiple levels, a large view deck with outdoor dining tables and chairs for 12 people, a designer kitchen upstairs and wet kitchen downstairs, four double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms (two of which have outside entrances and can therefore be used as self-contained guestrooms), an office with ensuite bathroom, maids' quarters with ensuite bathroom, driver's room with ensuite bathroom, utility room, powder room, two large storerooms, water filter rooms, generator room, tool store, car port for two vehicles and additional parking spaces on the driveway, a drying yard and extensive patio areas.
The garden is landscaped with tropical fruit trees, palms, and Philippine native flowering trees. A terraced vegetable garden features stone-clad raised beds for easy gardening and concrete slabs have already been laid for a vermiculture shed.
The house was constructed to very high structural standards to ensure that it is both earthquake-proof and typhon-proof given its exposed position on top of a ridge. The position provides views on fine days as far north as the Zambales Mountains, as far south as Mt Maculot on Taal Lake, and west across Manila Bay to Mt Marivales. Sunsets over the Bataan Peninsula can be seen throughout the year.
Timberland Heights is in an excellent location to provide security and safety away from the busy and congested metropolitan area but close enough for business persons to be able to attend appointments or meetings in the city when required
