Enjoy living by a lake. At Montecito, the lakes do more than adorn the property. They irrigate the landscape and nourish the lush greenery, true to NUVALI’s vision of a fully-sustainable community. The lakes are fed by the Matang Tubig, an artesian spring that comes from the ridges of Tagaytay. The spring also powers a mini-hydroelectric generator within the community, which provides enough electricity to light the main streets.
Living in Montecito, residents also benefit from the development’s own water reservoir and deep wells.
When it’s time to mix, mingle and entertain, guests are welcome at the Pasa Tiempo pavilion. Originally built as a grand home for the Yulo family, it was designed by national artist architect Leandro Locsin for the Yulo family. Here, a swimming pool, library, game rooms, function areas, an activity center and spa features will soon be available for residents to enjoy.
A chapel will be built within the community by 2010, allowing for peaceful moments of reflection.
Unique to Montecito are the grass courtyards or greenways that wind between most lots. With widths that range from 10 to 30 meters, the greenways provide both privacy and room for neighbors to connect. Intertwined with the rhythmic peaks and valleys of the terrain, these greenways allow light and fresh air to weave through the estate.
Tree and Plant Nursery
In a poetic tribute to the flora that wraps the landscape, a tree and plant nursery is maintained by the community. Known to have a positive effect physically and emotionally, the wide variety of plants are made available for residents to enjoy.
Soon, a bird sanctuary will be right next to Montecito, complementing the intrinsic tranquil-feel of the community.
