Leading the criteria for choosing the perfect neighborhood for your family are distinct characteristics of aesthetics combined with practical function and accessibility from the workplace. All of us, especially families with growing children, dream of living in a comfortable, elegant and inviting home with an island resort theme; bright sunshine tempered by cooling breezes throughout the day; beautiful sunsets that turn into cool evenings; wide-open spaces enhanced by landscaped greenery and colorful flowers; first-rate sports and leisure facilities laid out among play parks and walkways lush with foliage; and the happy sounds of kids at play in safety and security, surrounded by fresh, unpolluted environs yet a quick drive from the business districts.

But realizing that dream around Metro Manila is next to impossible, right? Not anymore. Maverick upscale property trendsetter Brittany Corporation, with its roster of master-planned communities inspired by the world’s best destinations, is making that dream come true with Island Park in Dasmariñas, Cavite, a collection of villages themed after the charming and breezy Carribean.

Island Park combines tropical theme influences with great outdoor spaces, achieving a rare 45:55 ratio of open space to development areas in a 100-hectare luxury community. Relaxing in the vast outdoors becomes a pleasant experience as the already verdant landscaping is enhanced with a quaint selection of tropical plants such as coconut trees and palm trees to provide shades, heliconias that cover the landscape with beautiful colors and sweet scents, bamboos that produce a soothing sound of rustling leaves, while beds of white sand complete the ambiance of the island-inspired neighborhood.

Island Park will be brought closer to the commercial and business district of Alabang via the soon to open Molino-Paliparan entrance. With the construction already 50 percent complete, you can soon reach Island Park in 20 minutes from Alabang thru Molino Boulevard via Daanghari. The network of highways in the area makes Island Park’s location strategic for metro residents, living in a community with the amenities and vistas of an island resort, while being just an easy drive away from business destinations in Makati, Manila and Ortigas, and leisure places like golf courses, beaches and upland retreats in nearby Tagaytay, Laguna and Batangas. Island Park is already accessible from Alabang via Daanghari through Molino-Paliparan Highway, from Makati via South Luzon Expressway through Carmona and Southwoods Exits, from Manila via the Coastal Road from Roxas Boulevard, and from Tagaytay and Batangas through Governor’s Drive where it is located.

A selection of resort-inspired homes with commanding views of the community’s scenic expanses are available at Island Park: Alpinia, with a floor area of 176 sq. m. on a 210 sq. m. lot ; Aristhea, a three-bedroom abode with two toilets and baths and floor area of 210 sq. m. on a 248 sq. m. lot; and Dianella, with four bedrooms, four toilets and baths, breakfast nook, auxiliary kitchen and family hall offers the largest living space with a floor area of 260 sq. m. on a 264 sq. m. lot.
