MANILA, Philippines - At DMCI Homes’ latest development in the South area, a new project has been designed to provide the perfect alternative to either high-rise condo living or townhouse/subdivisions that are common options in the urban scene.

Maricielo Villas will provide the convenience and ease of moving in that a condo affords, but at the same time present a healthy environment for young families. Here, they will enjoy resort living amenities as well as the spaciousness of a horizontal community through a 60:40 open space to building footprint ratio, which is a signature proposition at all DMCI Homes developments.

Located at the corner of Quirino Ave. and Casimiro Ave. in the residential city of Las Piñas, the project is the only mid-rise, medium density, Spanish-Mission inspired community that will rise in the area. Its invigorating mix of resort-style amenities offers refreshing landscapes to complement the laid back lifestyle typical of the South, creating a fine balance of paced living with the proximity to urban comforts ideally catered to the young upwardly-mobile families aspiring to live in a tranquil environment.

The property will be situated in an area depicted as a quiet neighborhood with suburban-esque attributes but close to in-city living requirements. It is approximately 300 meters near the Alabang Zapote Road, and 1km near the C5 Extension Road.

Maricielo Villas can be reached via four major access routes: Quirino Avenue, Alabang Zapote Road, Manila-Cavite Coastal Road, and C5 Extension, which are the major thoroughfares that residents can pass through easily.

The different options will allow residents to be at work with minutes to spare to get a cup of coffee or catch up with their colleagues. The Makati CBD is only 14.9 kms away, allowing at least 30 minutes of travel. The Filinvest CBD and the Alabang CBD, which are both a mere 10 kms away from the project site, will likewise cause less worries for professionals with only 25 minutes’ travel time.

Parents with growing children will be pleased to know that a number of reputable schools are within the vicinity of Maricielo Villas. The nearest is St. Joseph’s Academy at 2 kms or 5 minutes away; University of Perpetual Help-Rizal at 3.5 kms or 10 minutes away; St. Paul College Parañaque, St. Andrew’s School, Elizabeth Seton School, Southville International School, and San Beda College Alabang which are all at less than 10 minutes away.

Hospitals are also accessible from the project’s strategic location, including Alabang Medical Center, Asian Hospital, Las Piñas District Hospital, Christ the King General Hospital, A. Zarate Medical Center, and Las Piñas Doctors Hospital. For leisure and recreation needs, SM Bacoor, SM Sucat, SM Southmall, Alabang Town Center, and Festival Mall are just a few minutes’ drive away.

Churches, airports, and other places of interest are likewise accessible. This implies that residents of Maricielo Villas can get as far away from the hustle and bustle of urban living so the stresses of the commute and the long drives melt away as they enter the gates of their home.

Occupying a land area of 18,522 square meters, Maricielo Villas will be comprised of four medium-rise buildings with five residential floors each and one medium-rise building with four residential floors. Buyers can choose from two-bedroom and three-bedroom units, with only a total of 516 units available for low-density living that is common among all DMCI Homes developments.

The “Spanish Mission Architecture” theme design was specifically selected to blend in seamlessly with the Las Piñas City government’s requirement for the area, as a historic site and cradle of a National Cultural Treasure: the Parish Church of St. Joseph’s Bamboo Organ. The resort environment will be exemplified through a wide range of amenities and resort-style building features typical in DMCI Homes’ medium-rise developments.
