Portofino Alabang: A seamless blend of luxe lifestyle and modern comfort
Written by Amy R. Remo
A highly prestigious address in the South lets you discover a new dimension to luxury living.
The 300-ha Portofino in Alabang—while it clearly exemplifies the traditional notions of luxury as evident in its meticulous architectural details and bespoke homes—clearly goes beyond elevating one’s dwelling into a work of art. Brittany Corp., the brand behind this highly exclusive community, also accords Portofino residents access, convenience, time and space as it remains ever mindful of how the definition of “luxury” in today’s era continues to shift and expand.
After all, luxury nowadays isn’t all about rarity, elegance and opulence. While this definition still holds true, luxury is now being alluded to having modern comforts, being conveniently accessible, having access to lush, pristine surroundings and open spaces, and having ample time to spend with loved ones and to pursue their passions.
And this is exactly what Portofino in Alabang brings to the table—a luxury lifestyle with urban access for the discerning few.
Located along Daang Hari Road, the Italian-inspired community that is Portofino thrives at the heart of what is known as the “New Alabang”, which places residents near every conceivable necessity and luxury. That this upscale neighborhood is literally just minutes away from the Muntinlupa-Cavite Expressway (MCX) and South Luzon Expressway (SLEx) opens up the community to an entire spectrum of possibilities, lifestyle opportunities for that much sought work-life balance, and access to some of the most exciting destinations south of the metro.
As it offers a seamless blend of Italian lifestyle and urban thrills in a strategic location, Portofino allows residents to enjoy laidback suburban comforts without needing to forego exciting prospects that a city can offer.
This is the beauty of living at Portofino—its proximity to major thoroughfares brings residents closer to business districts like the Madrigal Business Park, commercial hubs like Evia Lifestyle Center, prestigious schools such as De La Salle Zobel, Paref Woodrose School, San Beda College Alabang, as well as hospitals and other key institutions. This strategic location makes it even more accessible to get to famous tourist spots in the south.
Best Lifestyle Center in the South
Residents are particularly quite fortunate to have a world-class commercial hub within their midst. Evia Lifestyle Mall offers the ultimate shopping and lifestyle experience with its expertly curated retail, dining and leisure options.
Helping create a picturesque ambience at the Evia Lifestyle Mall are its beautiful interiors and concept spaces. These include well manicured garden landscapes at its indoor park called The Atrium; a spot-on walkway of lights at the Promenade; the gorgeous ceiling mural at the Piazza; and the activity area at the Courtyard.
Nearby meanwhile are unique stand-alone dining concepts—The Crossing Café presents a relaxed atmosphere, great coffee and some of your favorite comfort food, and Joe Drive, the drive-thru version of the country’s first letter-writing café, Dear Joe.
Essentially, Portofino gives its residents access to a dynamic, live-work-play environment set amid lush open spaces.
Craftsmanship, elegance at exceptional value
The neighborhood itself meanwhile exudes sophistication and understated elegance.
Inspired by the eponymous coastal town in the heart of the Italian Riviera, Portofino Alabang is a beautiful, tranquil enclave, lined with modern luxurious houses that reflect a distinct European old world charm. Here, Brittany ensures enduring beauty, value, and custom-tailored experiences, providing new dimensions to luxury living.
At the heart of these classic Italian-inspired homes are distinctive courtyards complemented by Italian architectural details such as elaborate windows and doorways, cupolas, gabled roofs and pocket gardens. Spacious, lavish gardens with beautifully landscaped walkways surround Portofino’s luxury homes with grace and charm.
Positive impact on property value
Portofino indeed stands out as an exceptional community that delivers across several fronts—from its quality, modern features and choice amenities, luxurious offerings, to its distinctive exclusivity, accessibility and connectivity.
It’s thus natural that its properties would command a premium, ensuring continued appreciation especially when held over the long term. As studies would show, properties that are near key infrastructure projects and major thoroughfares enjoy higher values and prices.
Also worth noting is the fact that Portofino is a community being developed by Brittany, the luxury residential arm of the country’s largest homebuilder, Vista Land & Lifescapes Inc. The brand itself also has an impressive portfolio of luxury residential developments offering a beautiful collection of homes, condominiums and lot-only properties in some of the country’s finest locations. All these would ensure a smart, attractive investment option for today’s well-heeled homebuyers.
Brittany’s other equally sophisticated upscale projects include La Posada in Sucat; Georgia Club, and Promenade in Sta. Rosa, Laguna; and Crosswinds in Tagaytay.
