MY ALGRI-RETREAT EXPERIENCE
Karak Land Sdn Bhd introduced The Valley @ Bentong, Pahang. The agriculture-based project will have farms and homesteads, and inhabit 1,600 acres. With a gross advancement value of RM152.7 million, it is set to be a homesteading neighborhood.
Sam Wong believes that The Valley will consist of four zones or elements. The first, called “The Kerau“, will cover 600 acres– divided into Phases 1 and 2– and feature homesteads. It is called after Sungai Kerau, which flows from the west to the east of the location that is being developed.
Bina Puri purchased the land in 2013 and soft-launched Kerau Phase 1 in December 2016 with an overall of 158 lots. Each lot has a land area of one to two acres, or 43,560 to 87,120 sq ft.
Amenities and facilities such as a clubhouse, roads, drainage and utility supply energy be provided by supplied developer but designer landowners will have to undertake the construction of the physical structures on their parcel themselves.
Aside from the homestead advancement, they have even assigned about 230 acres for cash crops and a durian plantation at Zone 2. Phase 1 (100 acres) will have 2,600 trees while Stage 2 (100 acres) will have 2,500. The very first harvest is anticipated within five to six years.
For Zones 3 and 4, we have actually sold 433 acres of the leasehold land and the balance 333 acres will be reserved for long-term advancements.
The Valley is an hour’s drive from Malaysia capital KL, with simple access to the Kuala Lumpur-Karak Expressway.
