Baguio City is most notable for its mountainous terrain, abundant copse of pine trees and foliage, and chilly climate. The city’s environment attracts an influx of tourists every summer, and has encouraged the growth of residential developments all over the hilly side of the city.
Here are three of the mountain lodge-like residential developments located in the City of Pines.
Bristle Ridge is a high-end residential community by DMCI Homes located in Pacdal Road. Occupying a land area of 12,600 sqm, Bristle Ridge is comprised of three mid-rise condominiums named Bluebird, Southbelle, and Oakhill each with six levels of residential suites. It has a total of 349 residential units, all with an overlooking view of the Mansion House, Camp John Hay, Mines View Area, and the Teacher’s Park.
Bristle Ridge indulges its residents on a mountain lodge and country-club ambiance; its laid-back charm creates an ideal atmosphere amidst the breezy countryside. The mid-rise residential offers one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom unit types; one-bedroom units measure a minimum of 32 sqm up to 48 sqm, two-bedroom units measure 56.5 sqm up to 66.5 sqm, and three-bedroom units measure 83.5 sqm up to 96.5 sqm. The units in Bristle Ridge are spacious for families and their guests to enjoy the cool breeze and the refreshing scent of pine trees.
The amenities are inspired by idyllic mountain lodges and give a warm relaxing experience to unit owners and their guests. Bristle Ridge offers a gazebo and cabana area, children’s playground, fireplace with lounge area, landscaped atriums, and a view deck to appreciate the carpet of pine trees surrounding the residential community. Residents can also look after their physical and mental well-being through the fitness gym. Working out can be relaxing since the place has large windows that give a view of the trees enveloping the area.
Located in Outlook Drive, Vista Pinehill is a 12-storey residential condominium developed by Vista Land. It dons a modern mountain lodge theme that perfectly complements the thick carpet of pine trees and other foliage enveloping the 3,846 square meters of residential land.
Vista Pinehill is one of Vista Land’s University Residences, a line of condominiums that cater to students from neighboring surroundings. The mid-rise condominium presents amenities that promote warmth, relaxation, and wellness such as a sauna and fitness gym. Unit owners will be able to savor the warmth of the sauna, and work out for their fitness goals while appreciating the cool pine-scented breeze. There are also function halls and study rooms conducive for learning and enjoying peace and quiet.
The residential development offers one-bedroom units that measure a minimum of 24 sqm up to 37.2 sqm. These units come with a kitchen, toilet and bath, dining area, living area, and a bedroom with a balcony overlooking the rich greenery and the rest of Baguio City.
Vista Pinehill is adjacent to many premier schools in Baguio such as the University of the Philippines Baguio, St. Louie University, University of Baguio, National Baguio University, and the Philippine Military Academy. The secluded and hospitable environment of Vista Pinehill is conducive for students to grow, live, and continuously learn.
Yet another residential development by Vista Land, Vista Brenthill is an idyllic condominium aimed to redefine student living. The residential sits on a land area sprawling 2,694 square meters along the Yangco Road in Upper Pacdal and is named after its neighboring Brent International School.
Like its sibling development, Brenthill is a medium-rise development that offers a mountain lodge-like sanctuary and a conducive studying environment surrounded by a lush thicket of pine trees that fan a cool pine-scented breeze around Baguio’s refreshing landscape.
Brenthill Residences offers studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom units. Studio type units measure 25.5 sqm and costs Php 2.8 million, while one-bedroom units measure 34 sqm and can cost about Php 4.2 million. Two-bedroom units come in either inner units or corner units that measure 55.67 sqm and costs about Php 6.9 million. These units are perfect for students to easily access their schools, or to be rented for seekers who want to live within the hills of Baguio City.
The serene residential development offers amenities that cater to residents’ relaxation, amusement, and health. Facilities like sauna and fitness gym are perfect for improving one’s health and in maintaining warmth in Baguio’s bleak weather. But unlike other condominium developments in Baguio, Brenthill Residences has a swimming pool that can be used during summer vacation or when the sauna is too warm.
