Haus on Handy

Located in the Handy Road residential area in District 9, Haus on Handy boasts an excellent location just two minutes from Dhoby Ghaut MRT interchange, with easy access to the shopping and dining pleasures of Orchard Road. Comprising two blocks of nine- and 12-storey residential towers, Haus on Handy offers 188 apartments ranging from one- to three-bedroom dual-key configurations.

Meticulously designed, the development is faithful to the history of the site—where stately colonial mansions on Mount Sophia were home to Singapore’s early elites. The crowning jewel of the property is the Club Haus, a sensitive repurposing of the 1890s heritage Tower House, now given a new life as the property’s hub for its Premier Residential Services. Here, residents can enjoy the gym studios and entertain guests at the Club Suite, Club Gourmet, Club Visual, and Club Lounge.

Connecting the Club Haus to the residential towers are plenty of leisure and social spaces, including beautifully landscaped terraces and alcoves, a lap pool, barbecue pavilion, spa retreat and a Sky Garden.
