Leaning toward an escape from the hustle and bustle of the urban jungle, some homeowners have been searching for rural communities that offer a peaceful and serene environment but, at the same time, offer the same amount of comfortable urban living.
With its fast-emerging business hubs and infrastructure, as well as its well-known tourist destinations, Pampanga is rising to be at the forefront of rural-urban living lifestyle, especially with the ongoing development of The Arcadia by Suntrust Properties, Inc. in the municipality of Porac.
As Suntrust’s first major development in Pampanga, The Arcadia is housed near destinations that cater to homeowners’ wants and needs, may it be for food, health, leisure, education, business, and many more.
“Pampanga has always been a place where Suntrust has had its eyes on,” said Dexter T. Aviles, sector head of North Luzon Projects at Suntrust Properties, Inc. “Who doesn’t want to build in the culinary capital of Northern Luzon? Nowadays, homeowners are looking for the perfect location, flexibility in terms of terms and space.”
Aviles recalled how Suntrust was able to bag a land property in Brgy. Manibaug Paralaya, Porac, Pampanga last 2020, which was right next to the border of Angeles City.
“It was really perfect in terms of location and, of course, its proximity to Clark International Airport,” he added.
A 22-hectare development envisioned to redefine countryside living through collaborating with Pampanga’s sought-after urban destinations, The Arcadia is targeting homeowners who are starting families that want to start a life in Pampanga and locals who want to build a community in a secure and safe environment that are near urban institutions like schools, hospitals, and many more.
“Safety and security have always been a key in buying a home. In The Arcadia, this is always been provided,” Aviles explained. “You have 24/7 roving guards, CCTV cameras located in strategic locations along the community, and, of course, the secured perimeter wall all around the subdivision.”
The Arcadia prides itself as a residential development that offers the beauty of countryside living through its sublime modern contemporary homes and amenities. It is also designed to create a community that will build lasting friendships among neighbors and quality time with family through its vast amenity area.
“The Arcadia is defined as a place of quiet and simple living, and the Greek era has always been defined as a place where artists and poets would go to be inspired. This is the key we wanted to do in our development. In The Arcadia by Suntrust, we are developing a place that will be a peaceful, quiet, perfect abode for future families,” Aviles said.
The countryside property development is divided into two places: Arcadia East and Arcadia West. The former houses 2-story single detached units that are around 150-200 square meters in lot area. The latter has single attached 2-story units and townhouse 2-story units. Both offer a modern contemporary style of living, as well as resort-inspired amenities that will surely suit the lifestyle of their potential homeowners.
“You have a 1-hectare central amenity area that will house a multi-purpose clubhouse, pocket gardens, a giant play area for kids, and even a wedding gazebo,” Aviles listed down. “Aside from that, we have a separate area dedicated to a swimming complex that will house a lap pool, a children’s play pool surrounded by cabanas, and also changing rooms.”
In addition, pocket parks will also be available to future homeowners of The Arcadia where they can do their walks, reflect, jog, and many more.
Each area of The Arcadia has access to Angeles City through the Megadike Road, to Clark in the SCTEX-Porac Exit, and to San Fernando through the Megadike Extension Road. Going through these roads gives potential homeowners to access a plethora of Porac’s nature destinations, like botanical gardens, hot springs, hikeable mountains, and future eco-tourism sites.
“I would like to invite our future homebuyers to invest in The Arcadia where you can enjoy countryside living like no other,” Aviles said.
