Freehold corner units hard to come by

Corner units are rarely made available in the narrow shophouse segment, more so freehold ones in a popular enclave such as Serangoon Gardens.

The area is well-served by public transport and its food options are popular with both the residents of the township and those who come from afar to feast on the myriad of dining offerings.
