It would take you about 21 minutes to drive to the Central Business District (CBD) and Orchard Road.

If you need to check off everything on your grocery list, fret not, as Hillview Market Place at HillV2 and Cold Storage at The Rail Mall is a six-minute drive away. Food options within the vicinity can be found at the street across HillV2 (where there are specialty restaurants and cafes that offer regional cuisines, desserts, and spirits), Bukit Timah Market (for local cuisines and everyday delicacies), and many more.

Hillview Regency is definitely a paradise for nature lovers because you can take a hike or leisurely walk any time you want. Bukit Batok Town Park (also known as Little Guilin), Bukit Batok Nature Park, and Bukit Timah Nature Reserve are all within the area too. Ready to turn it up a notch? Try mountain biking at Dairy Farm Nature Park (located on the other side along Upper Bukit Timah Road) as they have a trail dedicated especially for that.

3. Education and Healthcare

Local and international schools are within the vicinity, ideal for families with school-age children. Within 500m of Hillview Regency, there are are four childcare centres, three kindergartens, Lian Hua Primary School (428m), and Hillgrove Secondary School (494m).

Getting medical care is not difficult at all as a number of hospitals are within reach – Ng Teng Fong Hospital (10-minute drive), Concord International Hospital (14-minute drive), and Mount Alvernia Hospital (15-minute drive).
