A cosy PJ house with character

A cosy PJ house with character

Upon entering Jalan 14/36 of Section 14, Petaling Jaya, one certainly can't miss this house.

From the exterior, the house which has a flat-roof, sports a contemporary design with white-washed walls and a beautiful porch.

"My neighbours always come over to admire my porch - some even take pictures," said the lady of the house, Teresa.

Teresa, 82, who lived in Bangsar before this, chose to purchase a property in Section 14 so that she would be close to her sisters.

"Both my sisters are staying in this area - they told me that if I do intend to move, it would be a good to move somewhere closer to them," said Teresa.

She recalled: "It was back in February 2011. I was at my sister's house and was reading The Star newspaper when I came across an advertisement for this house. I wanted to view the house, so I asked my sisters to come along with me. They weren't free at that time but I was so adamant that I called my taxi driver and asked him to take me to this house."

According to Teresa, she liked the house instantly. The 22' x 75' single-storey link house built in the 1950s was perfect for her. "As I entered the house, I knew it was going to be a good place for me to live in and without much hesitation, I bought it," said Teresa.
