The pandemic has forced most of us to reassess our lives, look inward, get this nagging desire to uproot ourselves from the grim cityscape and go to a place where we can bask in the surrounding beauty. Perhaps within a constellation of trees, an eyeful of ocean.
An hour-and-a-half drive from Metro Manila is a prime leisure resort community located in Nasugbu, Batangas, called Hamilo Coast. Its newest project, Freia at Pico de Loro Cove, is 80% complete as of January this year and on time for unit turnover beginning the first half of 2022.
The new dwvelopment is at the heart of Hamilo Coast’s 40-hectare, mid-rise, residential condominium complex currently composed of four clusters — Jacana, Myna, Carola and Miranda. Homeowners get a shot of serenity at Pico de Loro Cove developed by SM Prime’s Costa Del Hamilo Inc., a few hundred meters away from the beach, a seaside respite in an otherwise challenging year for the human race.
Designed by Broadway Malyan, Freia at Pico de Loro Cove boasts a mixture of two-bedroom apartments as well as three-bedroom penthouses, which include private rooftop terraces and gardens. Residents have use of a range of indoor amenities, including a resort-style lobby and function rooms.
A series of breaks in the façade — with covered walkways, shaded spots and pockets of greenery, not to mention protection from the elements — merges interiors with the outside surroundings. Thus, Freia condo dwellers can feel the morning and evening breeze along the corridors and covered walkways right inside the spacious residences. Blending with the natural surroundings are the warm color scheme and textures of the materials used in building the entire structure.
The substantial sizes of the two-bedroom condos vary from 67 sqm to 154 sqm, while the cuts of three-bedroom loft penthouses, which range from 221 to 392 sqm meters, are as large as a house. Built with only 223 units, Freia has limited units per floor so that owners can enjoy the comfort of space and privacy
At a certain point, dreams do coalesce into reality. With Freia at Pico de Loro Cove, this is how the ideals of and aspirations for seaside living have become a reality that is just within reach.
