There is no place like home. This is a cliché that rings even more true these days. With the current global pandemic forcing us to stay inside in the hopes of controlling the transmission of the virus in our communities, everything now is done within the walls of our homes. All this new normal would make one think, what’s my ideal home?

When a phenomenon takes place that puts the whole world on pause and you cannot have the very basic freedom of movement, it is quite a challenge to be stuck in a small condo or apartment in the middle of a city. Your wits will be put to test and patience will run out. You would wish you live someplace else where the air is fresh, vegetation is abundant, and a sense of tranquility is a permanent atmosphere. Somewhere, less than an hour’s drive from the busy metro, this is a privilege some homeowners actually enjoy, so much so that being on lockdown doesn’t feel like being ‘stuck home’. 

Yes. That dream home you have? It exists. And you literally can have it. NorthPine Land, a master of developing lifestyle communities has several properties that perfectly fits your ideal home, especially in a time of crisis. North of Metro Manila, there’s Montana Views and Montana Strands in San Fernando, Pampanga. Montana Views, considered as one of NorthPine’s most contemporary project, is an American inspired neighborhood with houses in sunny hues and adorable porches made for whiling away the afternoons. A unique community on its own, Montana Strands appeals with its retro-modern theme throughout. Both communities are nestled in a countryside setting where there is a grand view of Pampanga’s majestic Mount Arayat and the never-ending verdant hills and fields. Sounds dreamy? Check out the place.

Down South, there are a chic townhouse community, a zen and quiet neighborhood, and one with grandiose proportions. Respectively, these are Kahaya Place, Kohana Grove, and Greenwoods, all thriving communities developed by NorthPine Land.

Such homes situated in good locations, where you get both the serenity of country living and access to basic essentials in the city, are perfect for the kind of lifestyle that is comfortable and beneficial for your wellbeing. When we are forced to shift an everyday routine into something else that is unfamiliar, having a home that is reposeful contributes significantly to our mindsets and how we carry on living the new normal. Imagine a work-from-home setup where an ambiance that spark your creativity and productivity is ever present. From elements such as natural views through your window to functional house features, who would get tired of being on home quarantine? With this, one can wait out an ongoing pandemic peacefully while also making fruitful activities.

With disasters only unthinkable before, proving to have possibilities of truly happening, one lesson we can learn is that home is a refuge that greatly affects our spirits and mental state, both we need for survival. As a person with choices and abilities to get whatever you set your mind to, owning a home where you can live the life you want is certainly achievable and safe to say, a goal you should have for yourself too. There are houses built for bachelors, newly-weds, start-up, or big families. For NorthPine Land, all of these are developed with care, making sure that every project is a space that will nurture a healthy wellbeing.

If you’d be on lockdown for even longer, ask yourself, what kind of home would I rather be in? Check out NorthPine Land’s homepage for inspirations.
