I think I made the right choice in having my own place at East Ortigas Mansions.
In the past seven years since Precy Bacalangco moved into her 2-bedroom unit in East Ortigas Mansions in Pasig City, this DMCI Homes community has become more than a home for herself. The Mediterranean-inspired condominium development near Ortigas Center and the Libis Commercial Area is the second home of her parents, siblings, relatives and even friends as she was able to share the exciting and exhilarating East Ortigas Mansions lifestyle with them.
The spacious units, airy corridors with garden atriums, low-density community and resort-style amenities have given the Accounting Manager the value-added satisfaction for her first ever property investment.
Her nieces and nephews always have fun swimming in the kiddie pool. Her birthday celebration with family and friends at the clubhouse complete with a barbecue and singing at the KTV room was enjoyable. Her parents find the same quiet comfort she gets during their stay in her unit.
“I like to entertain. Most of the time, my friends are here and they enjoy the swimming pool and karaoke room,” says Bacalangco.
Other amenities and facilities are function hall, basketball court, and game room for billiards and dart. Inside the community are a café bar, bakery, water refilling station and a laundry shop to serve residents. Outside are a supermarket and a shopping mall.
Bacalangco never regretted giving up her rented apartment in 2005 in favor of a place she eventually owned.
“I think I made the right choice in having my own place at East Ortigas Mansions,” she proudly says. “I have not altered anything here since I moved in. That was seven years ago, but I never had problems here in my unit. What I am changing is just the accessories and furniture I’ve brought in”.
Seeing East Ortigas Mansions in a flyer given to her at a mall in 2005 made her drop early condo options in Taguig and Makati. The building layout and location near her then office in Ortigas Center were enough to convince her to buy a unit there.
“I don’t like buildings that closely face each other. It makes me feel like I am in a hospital. The condo that I like is one with open spaces, just like East Ortigas Mansions” she recalls.
The condo buildings are masterfully situated around the clubhouse and large outdoor swimming pool surrounded by tropical trees and plants.
“When I made an ocular, I felt it was even better because it was not too crowded, unlike in high-density condominiums, where amenities are not enough to accommodate its many residents,” Bacalangco says.
The unit layout, where the kitchen and toilet are not near the door, the rooftop drying and washing area, and the multi-level covered parking area also appealed to her.
The community has a perimeter fence with 24-hour security. “As soon as you enter the gate, the security is there,” she says. Silence in the corridors, which is among the house rules, also allows her to study well for her law classes on weekends.
For all the comfort, enjoyment and convenience she is getting at East Ortigas Mansions, Bacalangco has no other words to best describe the place. For her, it is home.
