The median sale at Sri Hartamas , Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia is RM 1,800,000
Sri Hartamas is an upscale suburb, which lies to the west of Kuala Lumpur. Located between Kepong and KL city centre, little infrastructure used to be available in the area. However, it gained popularity during the Asian boom in the mid 1990s. Sri Hartamas quickly became very popular, not only with the Malaysian young professionals, but also with expatriate families, mostly from Australia, Japan, South Korea, China, Britain and mainland Europe. The expatriate community represents about 30% of the population in the area.
Now, Sri Hartamas is one of the hotspots in KL due to the neighbouring Mont’Kiara developments that quickly followed in the area. The homes in Sri Hartamas consist of low-rise condominiums, townhouses, serviced apartments, courtyard villas, semi-detached link houses and bungalows that exude old-world charm. Among the developers that contributed to the growth of Sri Hartamas are Glomac Bhd, Malaysia Land Properties Sdn Bhd, Sunway City Bhd and Kiara Seleksi Sdn Bhd.

For instance, a nursery in Sri Hartamas, aside from childcare, offers introductory classes in French.
