Rhapsody Residences creates lifestyle spaces for residents


MANILA, Philippines - A happy home is often defined by memories made with the family — bonding sessions with the kids or intimate conversations with your significant other, all of which are definitely worth remembering.

Recognizing the importance of these moments, premier triple-A builder-developer DMCI Homes has come up a new development that offers lifestyle spaces to fit such happy memories.

Aptly called Rhapsody Residences, this new address south of Manila promises to promote fun and quality bonding time with the family in a resort-like environment — featuring amenities that one normally can only find by going to crowded tourist destinations or traveling far from home.  

With more than one hectare of amenities, well-landscaped surroundings, and public areas filled with lush greens and water features for a more relaxing ambience, Rhapsody Residences offers a rare haven for laid-back and active families who wish to take a break from crowded cityscape.

Here, there will simply be lots of lifestyle spaces that promote time for togetherness: cabanas, pocket gardens and parks, children’s playground as well as single-loaded corridors and garden atriums that can be found inside the buildings. These features are meant to inspire a holiday feel for the whole development, as they mimic a vacation lifestyle that offers homeowners the opportunity to enjoy a fresh and bright environment. At its pedestrian entrance, a grand teahouse would readily greet residents, thus providing them with another area for bonding.

DMCI Homes is building Rhapsody Residences as an attractive community that adheres to the core Asian value of family togetherness.

Living in Rhapsody is truly a complete experience as it offers ideas on what to indulge in. The kiddie pool is sure to be a hit among the younger residents, while the mature crowd will enjoy the lounge pool. The more active residents can find their needs fulfilled by the lap pool and the jogging paths, while a pool deck with themed cabanas offers extra space for social gatherings.

On the other hand, the clubhouse, which is designed with trellis for a contemporary Asian look, will also house the tastefully designed lounge and bar area. Its function rooms offer spaces for bigger social events and family gatherings. The fitness gym is a place where family members can stay fit together, while the game and entertainment rooms offer suitable spots for leisure activities. A water station, laundry station, and convenience store will also be situated here. The clubhouse is also Wi-Fi ready, presenting another corner for people to enjoy technology together.

Rhapsody Residences is located in barangay Buli in Muntinlupa, and is composed of eight five-storey buildings and one 10-storyy building. This project is set apart from other residential communities in the area as it presents low-density, mid-rise residential buildings that are situated within an environment that pays homage to nature despite the enclave’s primarily urban setting.  

Buildings are defined by central atriums and single-loaded corridors, assuring that natural light and air are utilized to full advantage, and saving on energy and promoting a more sustainable lifestyle. More than the feel of the place, however, the home spaces being offered at Rhapsody Residences are perfect for a growing family’s various needs. The two-bedroom unit offerings are considered to be one of the largest on the market, ranging from 54 to 77 sqm.

Homes will also have their own mailboxes with keys located in a centralized mail area. Parking slots for the units will include a wheel stopper, one set per slot. There will be back-up power for common areas, with automatic fire sprinkler and fire suppression systems in hallways. Security won’t be a problem with the project’s perimeter fence, 24/7 roving security and CCTV cameras in selected areas.

Completing the offer of worry-free living, the Property Management Office (PMO) provides services that add convenience for future residents. Aside from moving-in assistance, the PMO will also provide year-long services such as a systematic garbage disposal scheme, cab-calling services, community events organizer, general maintenance of common areas, roving security personnel for common areas, utilities application and payment assistance, realty tax payment assistance, and a leasing program for those who are buying a unit for investment.

The project is conveniently located near major lifestyle hubs such as malls and restaurant strips like SM Sucat, Metropolis Mall, Festival Supermall, SM Muntinlupa, and Alabang Town Center. Educational institutions like Manresa, San Beda College, South Ridge, Woodrose and De la Salle Zobel as well as health institutions like Asian Hospital are easily within reach. Its proximity to the airport and major highways also make traveling to the city a breeze.

Rhapsody Residences is now constructing its first building, Carillon, which will be turned over in December of 2012. To know more about the project, call 324-8888 or visit www.dmcihomes.com.
