Review of Mont Vert Seville, Wakad - 2 and 3 BHK luxurious flats at an affordable price starting from Rs. 29 lakhs

It is all about not cutting corners, just the price:

For a while, Mont Vert is trying to brand it's flats as a "Resort Homes". Even they had appointed Remo Fernandes, a Pioneer and Exponent of Indian Pop, Rock, Socio-Political Protest, Fusion, Bollywood, Chill-out and Meditative Music in Goa, as a celebrity brand ambassador for their "Mont Vert Tropez" at Wakad.

Mont Vert has stopped using the brand ambassador, which was rated 5/10 on Top Celebrity Branded Real Estate Projects in India, but not the concept of "Resort Homes" and "a resort like ambiance complete with water bodies, exotic landscaping".

Mont Vert claims to develop same in "Mont Vert Seville". Good thing is you can visit Mont Vert Tropez and check! The layout of the project, for me, does not look like a resort. It's typical.

Mont Vert Seville Wakad Layout Plan
If you discount the resort type of a ambiance, then what is left is - designer tiles, stylish glass shower cubicle with a massage jet, French windows! I think they realized this. And to look property price attractive, added 25 years free membership to Club 29, an exclusive lifestyle Club.

Amenities and Specifications:

Mont Vert does not believe in Specifications. They have a list of Amenities - Internal Amenities and External Amenities. It's usual list. I do not say this. Mont Vert has said shower cubicle and massage jet are the only unique specifications in the flat.

But remember, the French Windows are in the dinning and kitchen only. They are for better view and ventilation, that's good. But what about the resort like ambiance? I was expecting French Windows in Living and Bedrooms too. If something like this comes to your mind, do what i did. See the elevation of Mont Vert Seville!

PCMC and Banks' Approvals:

Most impressive feature of the floor plans is - PCMC' Plan approval and work commencement certificate number: BP / Wakad / 20 / 08 Dated 25/02/2008

It also tell us the vision of the builder Mr. Jayant Kaneria. Considering plan approval and work commencement certificate 'process' takes a month or two, these plans were designed in the second half of 2007. It means an year ago,in 2007, Mont Vert knew what would be the property rates in May 2008. And since 2007, they were trying their best to break the upcoming price barrier in Pune real estate market! This is very impressive. Flying French Kisses to you sir!

Mont Vert (Seville) shatters real estate price barrier

Project is approved by Private Sector Banks. ICICI, HDFC and Kotak Mahindra. APF Numbers are given on the website.

It is all about just the price:

What is not there is the property rate and the quotation of the flat. Mr. Mont Vert, isn't property rate your selling point? Look what Kumar Properties' Megapolis has done. Real estate price is there on the website.

Are Resort Homes like this?

Mont Vert Seville Floor Plan

Sorry, i haven't been to any resort so i don't have any idea about resort homes. But i know, some thinking is involved in the planning. This thinking is the concept of the project.But at Mont Vert Seville, sorry, i didn't find any. Of course, i do not mean to say there isn't any concept. It must be there. But i was looking for something more than fitting maximum flats in the FSI on hand. If you could find even a glimpse of "strategic planning and smart techniques", please let me know in the comments.

I think, now, i should let you choose your flat. Mont Vert Seville has 12 story 8 buildings. I couldn't count exact number of flats. No wonder, number of buildings, flats or size of the project is not mentioned on the website. Actually, there is no exact description of the project. What is described on the website is not there in the planning!

Mont Vert Seville known that Wakad is 3 Kms from Hinjewadi IT Park. But do they know, i wonder, what IT stands for? I have heard, Mont Vert is weak in abbreviations, acronyms and initialisms!

Should i cancel the booking in Wakad / Balewadi / Baner and book in Kumar Properties' Megapolis?

From Blue Ridge to Megapolis:

This is one of the many questions on my posts on Kumar Properties' Megapolis at Hinjewadi on "Pune real estate market news blog". I am sure, he is not the only one. Some of you must be in two minds too. Fortunately, this time you have time to think twice or even thrice. Megapolis or Wakad / Baner - Balewadi? What do you prefer and afford? Please, tell me in the comments. You can think it over once again, no problem.

There was no time to think when Paranjape Schemes' Blue Ridge was launched in the first phase of Rajiv Gandhi Infotech Park. Who took time to think are still thinking, 'Should i book a flat in Megapolis or wait for the 2nd phase of Blue Ridge?'

Zoo or Jungle?

Yes, there are lot of questions about Megapolis. I also have one,"Would you like to live in a gated community?" As a born Punekar, i do not want to live in a township totally cutoff from Pune city. It could be ultramodern and luxurious but i do not enjoy life in the zoo. I am born free. What about you?

Come on, let us discuss all questions. I have compiled a list of questions about Megapolis on my Pune real estate investment blog. Please, visit the blog and if you can answer, please, share your info and views in the comments. Who knows, whether we will get time when Magarpatta's Nanded City is launched on Sinhagad Road!
