Things may have already gone back to “normal” in the aftermath of the pandemic, but the sensibilities and preferences that were shaped in the last three years remain.
While many welcomed the flurry and buzzing excitement of cities, the longing for beautiful, tranquil escapes is still there. In their minds, sojourns in peaceful retreats, even those in the off-beaten paths, should now be an integral part of their lifestyle for the benefit of their overall health and well-being.
One such destination is the City of Baguio.
Nestled within the Cordillera Central mountain range some 1,400 meters above sea level, this upland city has long been a favorite among urban dwellers. Many find it refreshing to simply be here. After all, there’s something calming, peaceful, even mystical about Baguio’s cool, dewy mists, refreshing clime, and breathtaking views.
But with the pandemic-fueled shift towards healthier, safer, smarter, and more exclusive enclaves, many are now also looking for second homes that have the so-called essentials of the postpandemic world.
Whether you’re in Baguio for a vacation or you’re looking for a home you can call your own, the standards have changed as many now place more value on verdant greenery and wide open spaces, state-of-the-art tech features, sustainable designs and access to nature, coupled with unique, luxurious amenities, elegant interiors and architecture, as well as exquisite finishes.
Brittany Corp. is bringing all these to Baguio City, through its first high-end condominium project—now shaping up to be a beautiful, luxurious escape in the idyllic side of this upland.
Called Bern, this four-tower enclave calls to mind the opulence and sophistication of the Swiss lifestyle as it will feature traditional Alpine elements from the chalet-style buildings down to their interiors. It will mirror the charm and splendor of another Brittany project, the 100-ha Crosswinds Tagaytay, where you can find beautiful themed neighborhoods ensconced within landscaped pocket gardens and a lush forest of some 35,000 majestic pine trees.
Bern’s grandeur is most evident in the kind of indulgence it will afford its residents and guests. Exclusive, unrivaled experiences await here, thanks to a host of curated lifestyle features, world-class facilities and amenities located at the peak of the four towers.
Eiger Tower gives residents an imaginative, dedicated space, featuring Jacuzzis and family lounges with fire pits. Families and friends can spend quality time here, having relaxed, intimate conversations without needing to go out of your building.
Amenities set to revitalize the body and restore the spirit are found at the Alpstein Tower, designed to complement your active lifestyle. It hosts the gym, sauna, yoga, and pilates studio for the exclusive use of Bern residents.
Appenzell Tower’s peak amenity is iconic as it not only provides gorgeous views but can also double as an entertainment space that is home to a game room, view decks, lounges, and a fire pit. Plush seats are great for chats, while function rooms can accommodate the residents’ private events and intimate celebrations.
Relax and appreciate nature at Via Nassa Tower, where you can find an indoor-outdoor bar, view deck, Jacuzzi, lounges, and fire pits. Get on the view deck to have a picturesque view of the city while enjoying the company of family and friends.
It will be difficult not to get excited about these offerings for sure. If you’re eyeing to invest here, you can choose from Bern’s collection of spacious, flexible units, ranging from a one-bedroom suite (46 sqm) to a two-bedroom suite (101 sqm), where you get to enjoy the cool, crisp air and sweeping views of the Cordilleras mountains or the ever changing skyline Baguio City.
What makes Bern a highly exclusive, private retreat is the fact that there will only be four to eight units per floor, making it one of the most premium, low-density developments in Baguio.
And from here, you get to enjoy the beauty and bounty of the city, with its vibrant culture, pine forests, cool mountain clime, thriving arts scene, and vast selection of dining destinations. The country’s “Summer Capital” after all has not lost its luster as a tourist destination as it offers a fitting respite from the metro’s heat and a break from your usual grind.
It’s also worth noting that Bern is being built by Brittany, luxury residential arm of the country’s largest homebuilder Vista Land & Lifescapes Inc. Brittany’s projects, too, speak volumes of its prowess and capacity as a developer. With such a strong backing and an impressive portfolio, you are assured of a sound investment.
Whether you’re eyeing Bern as a vacation home, a permanent abode, or as an investment, this Swiss-inspired oasis is one opportunity you definitely shouldn’t miss.
