Ideal sanctuaries in the East

/ 04:12 AM August 29, 2020

Some city dwellers may have been enticed to move out of the metro and into areas that offer a more serene environment. Many have been eyeing Rizal, in particular, given the proximity of this province to Metro Manila via major thoroughfares and its wide array of residential options.

If you’re one of those considering to relocate here, you might be surprised to find suitable residential options that offer a healthy mix of suburban and modern lifestyle experiences. Trusted developer Sta. Lucia Land, who was among the first to see the province for its real estate potential, has the perfect residential offerings for you.


Palo Alto

High life in Baras

Palo Alto in Baras exemplifies the “high life.” One, it can be the envy of many because of its opulence. Two, it is on a higher altitude than Tagaytay. Homeowners would live right next to a forest reserve, a country club and farm estates.

Palo Alto is the biggest masterplanned community to rise along Marcos Highway at 200 hectares, 17.8 ha of which comprise of the residences.


Homeowners can spend time taking leisurely walks along the tree-lined streets or hanging out by a waterfall. Residents will also get to enjoy the country club’s amenities including a swimming pool, gym, tennis and basketball courts and bowling alley, among others. The Palo Alto Falls and Leisure Park within the estate has a cascade dropping into a pool.

Palo Alto is located right outside Antipolo, Tanay and Metro Manila. Accessibility will improve given major thoroughfares like the Marilaqui (Marikina, Laguna and Quezon) Highway and Circumferential Road 6 (C-6 Road). If you want to wander even farther into nature, this residential project is positioned with the eco-tourism map of the Sierra Madre Trail.

East Bel-Air Residences promises an urban lifestyle in a suburban setting.

Elegant urbanite in Cainta

In Cainta, Sta. Lucia is breaking the stereotypical image of modern urban living, i.e. cramped homes surrounded by congestion and hubris. The East Bel-Air Residences proves that the urban lifestyle is possible in a more suburban setting, in more spacious units.

The midrise buildings in this development ensure that urbanites can take up chic and elegant homes outside Metro Manila. Homeowners would not only benefit from less restrictive configurations often seen in similar projects within the capital, they would also enjoy the very same luxury amenities Sta. Lucia’s subdivisions have been known for.

They may take advantage of the clubhouse, the WiFi Zone, a swimming pool, a bathhouse and a basketball court, among others. The address is secured by a perimeter fence, CCTVs, and round-the-clock guards.

East Bel-Air Residences is inundated by spaces for retail, dining and banking. All other essential establishments are either a walk, a commute or a drive away, while Ortigas is just 30 minutes away.

Sta. Lucia Land offers a wide array of residential options in Rizal.

Paradise homes in Rodriguez

Monteverde Montalban offers a suburban paradise in Rodriguez, not far from the dynamic city but also allowing residents to escape into nature. Days begin with a view of the beautiful sunrise, refreshing the body and soul to brave the day ahead.


Sta. Lucia is developing the mixed-use property on a 15-ha land, located only 11 km away from Marikina and Quezon City; 10 minutes away from a hospital; and 40 minutes away from prestigious schools like the Ateneo De Manila University. The big-ticket C-6 Road connecting Taguig to the Batasan Complex will make it even more accessible. An address at Monteverde Montalban further situates residents to be just a walk away from Airlex Resort.

The developer intends to provide a liveable address that enables families to choose a peaceful lifestyle. As the Sta. Lucia signature, smart amenities here also include a swimming pool, basketball court and a multipurpose clubhouse.

The residential projects taking shape in Rizal highlight that, in its mission of “Building Dreams,” SLI is championing an elevated quality of life that is accessible to everyone.
