When the destination is worth it, the length of the journey doesn’t matter.
With the soothing cerulean waves and verdant fields that speak of waiting castles, it is no wonder that the areas around Lake Caliraya were once a haven for discerning families that lived distinct lifestyles.
At 1,200 feet above sea level, this man-made lake offers an oasis to people who have grown weary of the city.
It was in 1939 when an American Army Engineer created the man-made lake by flooding the Cavinti Valley of the Sierra Madre to generate hydroelectric power for Manila. Decades later, and up to this day, Lake Caliraya has become a bass fishing spot where enthusiasts gather to celebrate their love for nature and a leisurely lifestyle.
Come the late 1970s, the area became popular to the Manila elite and expat community, allowing them to unwind with a game of golf or various water activities like skiing, boating, and parasailing.
The 300-hectare property surrounding Lake Caliraya will once again be the home of the country’s elite as Megaworld’s subsidiary brand, Global-Estate Resorts, Inc., brings back the heyday of Caliraya.
Studies reveal the extent of how water is associated with the feeling of relaxation and comfort. Imagine enjoying the privilege of leisure and enjoyment brought by a body of water right at your doorstep.
With laidback, water-centered activities like yachting and fishing the community can readily enjoy, the soon-to-rise The Hamptons Village will also have a high-end clubhouse and a Private Marina where residents can dock their boats. For more privacy, several lakeside lots allow residents to construct their own docking, giving the appeal of dock-to-doorstep convenience.
The would-be residents of the lakeside village can choose from lots ranging from 500 square meters to 1,800 square meters. They will also have the privilege of choosing the design of their very own homes—from the soft-hue and wide, inviting spaces of a modern country home to the tall columns and symmetrical shape of the Greek Revival.
Inspired by the simple elegance of the shopper’s paradise East Hamptons’ Main Street, a commercial district will be erected a stone’s throw away from the village where residents can indulge in a variety of choice retail shops and restaurants.
Sports enthusiasts, meanwhile, can look forward to a fine day at the fairways and sate their appetite for the game via the property’s two 18-hole golf courses.
There will also be a public clubhouse for all residents and guests called The Club, a Marina Club for guests who would like to dock their boats, and a resort hotel district adding to the ambiance of living in a community where everything one needs to live a distinct lifestyle are all within arms reach.
Having a home at The Hamptons Caliraya may just be the sweet summer escape you need. After all, creating memories in a charming destination will always be worth the journey.
