Description
The Ocean’s Edge Condominium project is situated in peaceful Krating Bay, 10 minutes north of the vibrant Beach Resort of Pattaya and just 1 hours drive from Bangkok’s new international airport.
The 6,000 square metre plot of land runs directly along the beachfront for 160 metres and to a depth of 45 metres. This shape enabled a design of four separate buildings, allowing every unit to be a corner unit and thus incorporating uninterrupted seaviews from spacious, wrap around balconies. A 1.2m deep, 3.5m wide and 5.5m long private swimming pool, sunken to floor level, is on the balcony of 24 of the 32 units.
In order to conform to local building codes in respect of pure beachfront land, the height to roof level of each building is 14 metres and the total building footprint is 25% of the land size. This resulted in only four floors, with two apartments per floor, each identical at 170 square metres and designed to face westwards, directly to the sea, making a total of 32 exclusive units. Entry to each apartment is from the rear, with a choice of elevator entry directly into the apartment by stairs and through the main door.
The normal size apartment is 170 square metres, including balcony, the living room and kitchen is open plan. There are two bedrooms and two en-suite bathrooms plus guest bathroom. If a client so wishes, two units (one whole floor) can be combined, giving 340 square metres and the bed/bath configuration may be customized to suit….an example of which would be three bedrooms, office/den and home theatre.
The extensive landscaped gardens will have a 120 metre garden swimming pool with children’s pool, jogging paths, water falls, children’s play area, bar-b-q sala and deck chair areas.
There is an underground car park with designated residents and guest spaces and also each unit will be allocated a ten square metre storage room, to put away those bulky items that use space or do not easily fit into an apartment’s cupboards. There are two elevators per building, eight in all, with entry from the underground car park or ground floor lobby.

Construction of Ocean’s Edge
It is the developer’s intention to build the finest condominium on the Eastern Seaboard. This will be achieved by ensuring the use of only the finest quality materials and that workmanship is of the highest standard.
Ocean’s Edge will consist of four separate buildings, each of four stories using lightweight Superblock for the walls and a post tension system for the beams. Thirty centimeter square concrete piles will be sunk to a depth of seven metres and coupled with concrete footings to make the foundations.
Because of the sandy nature of the soil and the water table beginning at about one metre, it was decided to employ a specialized engineering firm to use a jet grouting for the underground level. This serves two purposes; to hold back the water seepage when digging out the underground area and to hold back the sandy soil and prevent wall crumbling when digging out.
High pressure water is used to dig a hole to a depth of seven metres. Liquid cement is poured into the hole and, after solidifying, forms a barrier fifty centimeters wide, running the entire perimeter of the basement area.
This barrier serves as the outer casement and the inside wall of the basement is formed of poured concrete to a further width of twenty centimeters. Thus the casing of the basement is a solid seventy centimeters, ensuring stability and protection.
Contained in the solid beams on the third and fourth floor are private swimming pools and it was considered essential that the pools be flush with the balcony floor level, not over ground. This has been achieved. However, in order to conform to the height restrictions for beachfront construction, to have pools on the second floor would have raised the building above the permitted fourteen metres, therefore the second floor was left as oversized balcony only. This has not proved detrimental, with those clients not wishing a balcony pool being able to select this option.
There will be two stairwells. The main stairway will be open and well lighted with large windows. The second will be smaller and serve as a fire stairway. It will have fire doors at each level, small windows and be smoke proof.
Water will be supplied from two 75 metre wells, dug on site, and will feed underground storage tanks with 60 cubic metres capacity, giving three days supply. The water will be fed to the units via water purification system and thus drinking water will be available from every tap in the apartment.
Toilet ‘black’ waste water will be treated in its own system and stored. ‘Grey’ waste water, from kitchen and bathroom sinks, will also be treated and combined to be used for landscaping irrigation. In addition, all rain water will be collected from the roofs and common areas and also stored for use on the gardens.
Each unit has a 150 litre heat recovery system which uses the air conditioning units to provide hot water, an energy saving feature. There is a back up electric heater in the event that air conditioning is not used.

Interiors
Entry to one of 8 programmed elevators, two per building, is restricted to owners carrying a keyless card identification as, for security, there are no buttons to open the door independently. Once the owner has gained entry to the elevator, it is programmed to automatically travel only to the apartment which corresponds to that entry card and will open inside that apartment. A motion detector will register the entry and switch on a pre-programmed light setting, allowing the owner to move into a lighted room without searching for light switches. It will also have been possible to remotely switch on the air-conditioning in the apartment by mobile phone whilst on the way home, thus arriving to both a lighted and cooled apartment.
Air conditioning will be Daikin cassette units.
All cabinets in the apartment will be made of 18 millimetre LVL wood, comprising layers of German veneer wood and foam, bonded together and, because of its strength and quality, it comes with a lifetime guarantee. All drawers and doors are soft closing. Another unique product used in the cabinetry is Parapan, an acrylic material, also from Germany, which forms the doors and outside panels. Parapan has been used by kitchen makers outside of Thailand using a 4 millimetre veneer sheet attached to mdf or chipboard, however it has never been used as a complete piece. All parapan used in the cabinets throughout the apartment is 18 millimetre thick.
This material gives a high gloss, mirror like finish and is very luxurious.
The combined living room and kitchen floors have huge 1 square metre Spanish marble slabs.
The kitchen counter is made of curved Parapan exterior with a one piece Indonesian ‘raw silk’ granite top. A six seat circular dining table of the same granite is at the end of the counter and has a unique feature of moving to the side on rollers, extend it for full use, and move it back to save space. Above the dining table hangs an Italian crystal glass chandelier, set into a circular ceiling mirror.
The fully fitted kitchen cabinets come with all appliances as standard; 4 ring electric hob, hood, dishwasher, washer/dryer, 17 cubic metre refrigerator/freezer, combo microwave convection oven, 12 bottle wine cooler, toaster and espresso machine. Each appliance is snugly tucked away into the various cabinets.
The living room area has glass paneled walls opposite a ‘life station’, which holds a 42 inch LCD television (included as standard) and parapan/LVL cupboards. The backdrop is real leather panels.
The view through the five metre, four panel patio doors to the balcony, swimming pool and out to the beach and sea, is spectacular. The view is enhanced by the use of two meter panel clear glass for the balcony, specially treated for safety, including eight metres of curved panels, which give a wonderful effect.
The bedroom floors are finished with 1.5 metre lengths of Tasmanian oak wood.
All free wall area in the apartment is covered with Japanese real silk wall paper. Curtains and sheer curtains are also real silk, from Northern Thailand, and are motorised.
Drop ceilings contain hidden LED lights, halogen spots and down lights.
The master bedroom has eight metre wrap around windows and patio doors, also opening onto the balcony with the same views as the living room. There are mirrors set in the ceiling.
There is a dressing area with large closets with full length mirror doors and ladies vanity and make up area. Drawers are set with velvet lining and glass tops for ease of jewelry selection.
The dress area leads to the master bathroom.
Double his and hers sinks of parapan, surround glass cabinets, ceiling mirror with black Italian crystal glass chandelier and 60 square centimeter Spanish marble floor and walls, give an opulent feel. The shower set is Austrian and has LED lights which colour the water flow for a unique bathing experience. A two metre ‘magic screen glass’ panel adds to the ‘wow’ effect by enabling a clear/opaque view at the touch of a button. Magnified make up mirror and hair dryer are fitted. A motion detector in the dress area is automatically set to turn on a low ‘night light’, so that a visit to the bathroom at night can be made without having to manually switch on any lights and will turn off after two minutes.
The electrical system is controlled by a Siemens smart home living system, which operates all of the mentioned controls plus enables pre-programming of switches to a desired function, including a remote control operation, of lighting – off and on , dim up and down; air conditioning – off and on, set temperature; curtains – open and close.
The television system is provided by ETV from Scotland. Their system is primarily designed for hotel use, however, it has been adapted for residential use and will include; enhancement of the satellite signal and individual distribution and choice of programming to each unit, the television select menu in a choice of 27 languages, programmed recording, 5,000 tune music library, movie library and international radio stations. Internet browsing and email can be set using the television as a monitor, with split screen to allow the programme to run while browsing.
Pictures from the many cctv security cameras placed around the project can be viewed on the television – Mum can cook dinner or watch a movie in the apartment whilst keeping an eye on the children playing in the gardens via the PIP on the television.
Visitors to the project are screened at the main gate and a call to the apartment seeks to give permission before any visitor may enter. The cctv camera at the gate will enable a view of the visitor to help identification, if required.
Apartments will contain everything in place, ready to move in – ‘simply bring your suitcase’.
All this strives to elevate Ocean’s Edge to become the premier Thailand condominium development.
