"The year 2022 has seen pent-up demand in the sale of super-luxury floors in the South Delhi's prime colonies but the supply of ready-to-move-in apartments is limited," said Rohit Chopra of Southdelhiprime.com.
Sotheby’s team confirmed having the exclusive mandate of this property but declined to comment on the transaction and the name of the buyer.The property is listed on Sotheby’s website. According to the listing, the apartment forms part of a contemporary building with a plot size of 410 sqm (approximately) and is surrounded by verdant greenery on a quiet and peaceful road. The unit has four spacious bedrooms with en-suite baths and a powder room. The apartment comes with two designated car parking spaces in the stilt, and a separate staff room with a bath. This bungalow-styled building only has up to three floors i.e. basement and ground, first and second floor, hence resulting in a higher built-up area and a larger land share of 30 percent.
