How to live a Metro-like lifestyle away from the Metro?

10:48 AM October 06, 2017


To almost everyone living in this ever-growing and fast-paced metro, while seemingly being trapped in the hustle and bustle of the city, fulfilling the dream of living in a quaint and relaxing place may just be out of reach for many. Not to mention the endless responsibilities demanded by work and family, that dream may just be wishful thinking.

Of course, the usual roadtrips during holidays and weekends may just curb that ever-longing thirst of someone to veer away from the stresses of everyday life. Some decide to go to the beach to relive their memorable summers, others go trekking up a mountain as a starting point for a new hobby. For those who cannot just seem to separate the words fun and relaxation, they decide to go to Tagaytay for the cool breeze, coupled with that Starbucks Frappuccino.


Quite a number though simply opt for a staycation in the metro, either in hotels or in their own comfortable abode. However, a comfortable abode might be an understatement for these same people. For them, the question that always pops into their heads is – “Can it ever be possible for me to live in a place where I can combine everything that I want to do? From taking a dip in the pool under the sun whenever I want, to enjoying a cup of coffee that’s just right at night while enjoying the cool breeze; all while living near my home so that I won’t have to worry too much about work the next day.”

Lucky for them, there might be an answer all along. In the booming commercial and residential district of Sta. Rosa, Laguna, there rises vast sanctuaries that provide residents an intimate escape with nature. These are Solen Residences and Pramana Residential Park, Greenfield Development Corporation (GDC)’s subdivision communities designed to nurture growing families against a backdrop of nature-rich sceneries.

Situated within the 400-hectare master-planned township that is Greenfield City – the “city within a park” – Solen and Pramana are crafted for homebuyers who are looking for the type of spacious living that they’ve been accustomed to at the time when they spent their childhood by the lakes, woods, or fields of their provinces.

Interactions with nature are a part of life at Solen and Pramana, while residents enjoy comfortable living in modern homes. House and lot sizes in Solen usually range from 155 sqm to 288 sqm, while Pramana offers 155 sqm to 300 sqm units.


To make both communities relevant through the times, the developer upholds respect for nature as evident in the dedicated open spaces and abundance of greeneries. Spanning a total of 51 hectares, Solen allots more than half to green open space, a small lake, a 5,000-sqm nature park, as well as tree-lined roads, to serve as the backdrop for the subdivision’s amenities.

Residents can unwind at the pool area, or otherwise maintain an active lifestyle at the well-equipped gym room and basketball court. The kids, meanwhile, can bond with other kids at the children’s pavilion, nature park, and playgrounds.
