Thailand's 'Mulberry Grove Villas' introduces 'cluster homes' for extended families at The Forestias
BANGKOK, Nov. 22, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Total residential sales of branded homes exceed US$ 610 million at The Forestias

"It's an exciting new concept that is inspired by the way families had always 
lived in Thailand – connected homes for multiple generations of the same family 
to live next to each other and spend more time together." Mr. Chakrit 
Hassarangsee, Senior Vice President - MQDC

MQDC (Magnolia Quality Development Corporation), one of Thailand's leading 
property developers, today, announced that it is opening the first of its 
Mulberry Grove The Forestias Villas residences on 1st December 2022. It will 
showcase a new concept in home design that allows multiple villas to be 
connected together so that extended families of several generations can live 
together while also enjoying the privacy of being in their own, separate home.

The Mulberry Grove Villas are comprised of 37 houses that range in size from 
around 1,000 square meters to 1,700 square meters. They are laid out across 
4.16 hectares at the 64-hectare 'The Forestias' mixed use development, which is 
one of Thailand's largest private sector property development projects and is 
located in eastern Bangkok in the rapidly developing 'Eastern Economic 

Mr. Chakrit Hassarangsee, MQDC's Senior Vice President specializing in the 
development of the most luxurious residential brands said, "It's an exciting 
new concept that is inspired by the way families had always lived in Thailand – 
in connected homes with multiple generations of the same family living next to 
each other. Modern urban lifestyle needs have made that increasingly difficult, 
and Mulberry Grove aims to help families reconnect. We have had a lot of 
interest in our concept and now we can invite families to view the real thing 
from the first of December onwards."

He said that Mulberry Grove Villas are designed in three sizes, ranging from 
four to six bedrooms, and that families can decide on purchasing a combination 
of home types to create a cluster of different sized homes that can be 
connected by short walkways, but which are also separated by trees and other 
natural screens for privacy.

"The biggest homes have very large dining areas and communal spaces so that the 
entire family, from all generations, can gather together in one home, too, and 
with some homes comfortably seating twenty or more people at a table at the 
same time."

Creating a cluster of houses, rather than having one single very large house, 
is also intended to let each generation design their interiors and their home 
layouts to suit their own, different generational needs and styles.

'Time Bonus'

Mr. Roongroj Chongsujipan, Senior Vice President, MQDC said, "This concept, 
which lets one live in immediate proximity to one's parents or adult children, 
or both, also gives homeowners a big 'time bonus'. All generations, while 
living in a home designed just right for their own needs, can still reach other 
members of the family in less than a minute's walk. Families can help each 
other with the care of children as well as provide care for elderly parents 
much more conveniently and at any time of day or night. It all translates to 
less time in traffic travelling between homes, and more time together for 

"Another important benefit is that children will never feel left at home alone 
because there is always a family member nearby in one of the homes, while 
retired grandparents will be much more energized by always being a part of 
their children's and grandchildren's lives by being so close."

The extra-large Mulberry Grove Villa type has around 1,700 sqm of floor space 
and is priced (at current exchange rates) at approximately US$8.7 million. The 
large villas have around 1,200 sqm of floor space and are priced at 
approximately US$6.2 million. And the medium size villas have around 1,000 sqm 
of floor space and are priced at US$5.2 million.

The Mulberry Grove Villas are located close to several other luxury components 
within The Forestias including the ultra-luxury Six Senses Residences, which 
are the first Six Senses Residences being built in Thailand, as well as a new 
Six Senses Hotel that is scheduled to open in 2024.

The Forestias is a new global prototype for a town development and is the 
world's first town to have every aspect purposefully designed for healthier 
living. It is designed and being built by some of the world's most respected 
experts and has already received more than 40 global awards recognising its 
outstanding aspects that focus on healthier living, environmental quality, and 
sustainability. Among the awards is a 'Gold Award for Urban Design' presented 
by the prestigious International Design Awards (IDA), a Platinum Award for 
environmental sustainability from the Outstanding Property Awards London, as 
well as being selected a Winner of the Visionary Living & Working award from 
Innovative Architecture.

Mr. Kittiphun Ouiyamaphun, Project Director – The Forestias, MQDC, said, "We 
have seen a lot of excitement around our various residential components, 
including the Mulberry Grove Villas, as well as at the Six Senses Residences. 
We feel very rewarded by seeing so many families committing to the various 
components of The Forestias and we are making very rapid progress with 

The Forestias has registered total sales of residences across the multiple 
branded projects exceeding US$ 610 million.

One of the highlight features of The Forestias is a 4.8-hectares forest at the 
center of the development that has a 1.6-kilometer walkway weaving through the 
forest canopy. Apart from the residential components, The Forestias also 
includes lifestyle and family entertainment facilities, retail and food & 
beverage outlets, a Town Center for community activities and cultural pursuits, 
a Family Center, multiple markets, a sports complex, and commercial space for
