This upper-class residential enclave, being home to many of the elite in the country, makes Kenny Hills the “address of addresses”. Located in the hilly fringes of Kuala Lumpur city, it is also a green lung for the capital. It comprises mainly luxury bungalows with beautiful large gardens and low-density condominiums.
Originally known as Kenny Hills, it is now called Bukit Tunku, after the late Tunku Abdul Rahman, the first Prime Minister of Malaysia, whose house is located here. It borders the central business district (CBD) of the city, which is demarcated by Jalan Kuching and and Lebuhraya Sultan Iskandar.
The many small tree-lined winding roads that go up and down as well as in and around the green hills make this exclusive residential sanctuary very pleasant to drive through, not to mention live in. Common features among the posh residences here include private swimming pools and large lovely landscaped gardens, and a few even boast individual tennis courts. Many of the bungalows sit on sizeable pieces of land averaging 8,000 sq ft, with average built-up areas of 6,000 sq ft.
