Are you in the market for a luxurious and spacious home in one of the largest subdivisions in Asia? Look no further than BF Homes, a sizeable residential enclave shared by the cities of Parañaque and Las Piñas.
BF Homes, which is often referred to in Philippine media as “the biggest subdivision in Asia,” was the first of the BF real estate projects of Tomas Aguirre, owner, and founder of Banco Filipino. At the peak of its popularity in the 1970s, BF Homes was perhaps the only gated community in the Philippines with its own hotel and resort, movie theater, bowling alley, convenience store, and other commercial complexes.
However, the 1980s were not so good for Banco Filipino, and the subdivision suffered as a result. Its ownership and control fell into the hands of the residents, who formed individual homeowner associations within the community, which resulted in BF Homes being a collection of 82 separate enclaves. Each of these enclaves is fenced and guarded, and they issue individual car stickers if you want to get inside these small villages. Given how safe and idyllic these communities are, purchasing a house and lot for sale in BF Homes is worthwhile, especially if you want only the best for you and your family.
Fast forward to the late 1990s and 2000s, the subdivision is now divided into BF Homes Parañaque and BF Homes International Las Piñas. Many home seekers are clamoring for a house and lot for sale in BF Homes, which has also emerged as one of the most popular commercial areas and foodie destinations in Metro Manila. Its main thoroughfare, Aguirre Street, is now lined with locally grown eateries, fast food outlets, and commercial establishments, whose foot and car traffic rival that of Makati and Ortigas Center’s commercial areas. In 2013, SM Prime opened its own shopping mall in the area—the 120,200 sqm SM City BF Parañaque.
One of the most popular areas within BF Homes is the Parañaque portion, which is home to a number of BF Homes enclaves, the most popular of which are BF Northwest Village, Tahanan Village, Pitong Daan, and BF Bayanihan Village, among others. A typical and older house and lot for sale in BF Homes Paranaque features a bungalow design, has two stories, and sits on a lot that measures approximately 200 square meters. This typical property would have an asking price of about PHP 10–12 million.
However, it is also not unusual to find a newly built house and lot for sale in BF Homes that features a contemporary design boasts a minimum of four bedrooms and has a lot area of between 300 and 400 square meters. A house and lot for sale in BF Homes like this typically has an asking price of between PHP 12 to 40 million (depending on the enclave they happen to be situated in) and have a garage large enough to fit two cars.
One of the great things about living in BF Homes Parañaque is that residents don’t have to leave the subdivision to get the products and services they need. It’s home to many commercial establishments, as well as being close to various hospitals, schools, and malls in the city.
