Often mistaken for the Don Bosco Church in Makati, Don Bosco—one of Parañaque’s 16 barangays—is also one of the city’s most popular places to find a house and lot for sale. Easily accessible from the Makati central business district (CBD) and Bonifacio Global City via the Metro Manila Skyway and the South Luzon Expressway (via Bicutan Exit), Don Bosco hosts a large number of gated communities, many of which also host subdivisions within them. The most popular among these Don Bosco communities is the Betterliving Subdivision.
Don Bosco’s popularity among home buyers has led many of its areas to commercialize quite rapidly. Doña Soledad Avenue, for instance, is now a vibrant commercial strip with both its sides lined by supermarkets, restaurants and cafés, and many other commercial establishments. Some of the smaller streets in Betterliving have also been transformed into exciting foodie destinations, which are now becoming popular among the people who live in the south of Metro Manila.
Accessibility is also one of Don Bosco’s best attributes. Aside from the aforementioned Skyway and South Luzon Expressway, the community is also quite accessible from the airport, either via Rodriquez Avenue that leads to the C5 Extension or via France Street in Better Living that leads to Dr. A Santos Avenue (Sucat Road). Hence, it is not surprising that Don Bosco is one of the most popular locations among home buyers not just in Parañaque, but perhaps in the entire southern portion of Metro Manila.
Being a largely residential location, Don Bosco offers a myriad of house and lot options to buyers with every possible budget. If one is looking for an affordable property, then a simple, newly built townhouse in Betterliving is the perfect property to purchase. This house and lot for sale comes with four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a two-car garage. It is currently listed for a very cheap PHP 4 million.
Another great yet affordable house and lot for sale in Don Bosco is a three bedroom, two bathroom resale property situated in Levitown Villas. With a floor area of approximately 120 square meters and parking space for one car, this property is on offer for just PHP 3.8 million.
If money is not an issue, then there is a well-maintained two-storey house also located in Levitown Villas. Boasting of four spacious bedrooms, three bathrooms, a two-car garage, and a big garden, this corner lot property (330 square meters) is on offer for PHP 11 million.
Another Don Bosco property on the pricier side is a five bedroom, five bathroom, three-storey house in Betterliving, which also comes with a maid’s room and a three-car garage. Sitting on a lot measuring 206 square meters, this property is currently listed for PHP 12 million.
The great thing about Betterliving in Don Bosco, Parañaque, is that people need not travel too far from Makati or BGC in order to find the house of their dreams without breaking the bank. Properties here are as good and spacious as the ones you will find in Makati or Taguig without the high price tag, which makes the location the perfect spot for newly-wed couples and starting families.
