Montecito Facts

Leave a comment

WHAT IS MONTECITO?

 

Montecito is an exclusive residential enclave of almost 300 lots. It is spread over a 60-hectare prime property inside Nuvali. About 50% of the total land area is dedicated to shared open spaces.

Back in 1983, Canlubang Sugar Estate president Jose Yulo, Jr. and his wife Regina decided to build their hacienda in the family’s Laguna plantation. They built a home that had provisions of self-sustainability, such as its own mini-hydroelectric plant and water system.

 

Mr. Yulo, upon the encouragement of close friends, organized a team to develop about 300 very special lots designed in the same spirit as his own home.

 

Because of the views of the small mountains surrounding the hacienda, the place was baptized “Montecito” (little mountain). The rest is history.

 

HOW DID MONTECITO BECOME PART OF AYALA LAND?

 

Believing in Jose Yulo, Jr.’s vision of bringing back life as it once was, Ayala Land Premier recently added Montecito in its roster of distinctive communities. This is also perfect since Montecito is in the heart of Nuvali, Ayala Land’s biggest green city project (Ecopolis, as we call it).

 

WHERE IS MONTECITO?

 

Montecito is in Canlubang, Laguna. It is situated inside Nuvali, the country’s first green city or Ecopolis. Key words: Eco-community that is economically, environmentally, and socially sustainable.

 

It is accessible via South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) through: Mamplasan, Sta. Rosa, Greenfield/Eton and Silangan Exits.

 

ARE THERE SCHOOLS NEAR MONTECITO?

 

There’s De La Salle Canlubang, there’s De La Salle Zobel in Alabang (Alabang is just 20 minutes away), there’s Don Bosco in Dasma, Cavite, there’s St. Scholastica (near Ayala Westgrove Heights), UP Los Banos, and there’s also Woodrose, and of course Ateneo Graduate school in Paseo de Sta. Rosa.

 

Soon, there will be Xavier, UST and San Sebastian in Nuvali.

 

WHAT ARE THE OTHER ESTABLISHMENTS NEAR MONTECITO?

 

For shopping malls, there’s one in Paseo De Sta. Rosa, there’s Alabang Town Center, Festival Mall, and SM Southmall.

 

For churches, there’s St. James in Alabang and St. Joseph in Canlubang. Soon, St. Benedict Church will be built next to Scholastica (just outside Ayala Westgrove Heights).

 

For those who play golf, you can go to Ayala Greenfield Estates, Santa Elena, Southwoods, Canlubang Golf & Country Club, and Tagaytay Highlands.

 

For medical needs, there’s Asian Hospital.

 

WHAT’S THE LOT-HECTARE RATIO IN MONTECITO?

 

To give you an idea of how special Montecito is, listen to this.

Avida, 50 houses per hectare.

Alveo, 25 houses per hectare.

Ayala Land Premier (on the average), 10 houses per hectare.

Montecito, 5 houses per hectare! Now, that’s a lot of space between houses!

 

WHAT ARE THE THINGS THAT MAKES MONTECITO SPECIAL?

 

For starters, Montecito has 2 lakes with a shoreline of almost 1km. It is fed by an artesian spring called Matang Tubig or “Eye of the Water” coming from the ridges of Tagaytay. The lake serves a dual purpose: one, to irrigate the landscape; and two, enhance the area’s atmosphere of tranquillity. Very soon, the lake will be a perfect venue for outdoor activities, that’s why, jogging paths, a basketball court, and big lawn areas will be constructed.

 

Then, there’s Pasa Tiempo – the original Yulo house that was built in 1980’s. This was designed by the late national artist Leandro Locsin, a Yulo relative. This celebrated home now serves as the village clubhouse. Currently, we are doing renovation to convert the house into a social and activity center, with a pool, gym, wellness facilities, etc.

What makes Montecito really one of a kind are the “Greenways”. In a radical departure from conventional thinking, nearly all lots in Montecito are designed to have generous open spaces between homes. I’m talking about greenways that range from 10 to 30 meters. These provide abundant ventilation, light and privacy. It acts as a quiet buffer between choice lots.

 

Also, another thing that makes Montecito special is the fact that it has its own tree and plant nursery. And Montecito is proud of that. The village staff nurtures a wide variety of plants to keep the neighbourhood atmosphere healthy and natural. And this is exactly the kind of eco-sustainability that we would like to have in a village, or in city. Don’t forget, Montecito also has a mini-hydro electric plant that produces clean energy to light its streets. This is the kind of mind-set we want our residents to have. Some sense of responsibility or accountability somehow to our environment.

 

WHAT’S THE PRICE AND SIZE OF LOTS IN MONTECITO?

 

List price per square meter in Montecito ranges from P8,800 (Super prime lots) to P12,500 (Lake District lots). Corner lots have a premium of P500. Sizes ranges from 600sqm to 1300sqm.

 

WHAT ELSE CAN YOU SAY ABOUT MONTECITO?

 

Montecito is really a special project, and we are glad we are given the chance to share it to the public. It has that unique ability to draw both the young and old. Retirees find it a very nice place. It is very ideal for people who have an appreciation for estate-living in an all-natural environment. The young find Montecito as a good way to position themselves in the heart of Nuvali. Canlubang is on the rise. Already, it is known today as one of the country’s fastest growing economic hubs. As Nuvali continues to grow, the premium location of Montecito ensures it will remain a neighbourhood with the best life has to offer.
