Mercy Homes UK visits Legacy Estate in the posh Akobo GRA IBADAN

So here we are in Ibadan the largest city in Nigeria (nile Oluyole)!

( Legacy Estate in the posh Akobo GRA IBADAN ) famously sang about by rap singer QDOT  and Olamide and just under 1 hour drive from the hectic, crazy stressful traffic of Lagos to a serene quiet scenery of Ibadan .  visiting Mr Jide the CEO of Legacy Estate and Director of Structuracasa. Ibadan is my favourite city in Nigeria, having grown up Ibadan , Challenge to be precise going from downtown Molete to Idi arere, beere, mapo to the uptown exclusive GRA areas, JERICHO, BODIJA, ONIREKE, AGODI, OLUYOLE, IYAGANKU, AKOBO etc.

You cannot compare Ibadan to Lagos at all, having been in Lagos for 1 month on my business trip, I discovered that there are certian times of the day you dont dare to go from mainland to Island, if you leave anytime after 4pm, you could be stuck in traffic for over 5hrs!, I am talking from experience.

For Nigerians in Diaspora who are non Lagosians, Ibadan is more enticing and serene, there is a local flight that will take 30mins to Lagos and a steady growing influx of Lagosians moving into the exclusive suburbs and GRA’s of Ibadan. I will like you to seriously consider buying into IBADAN

Developer says “One great advantage about living in AKOBO GRA IBADAN, is the easy accessibility to other prime areas in the city, such as the University of Ibadan, Ibadan Airport, Lagos/Ibadan Express way, University College Hospital (UCH) Ibadan, Ventura Mall, General gas just to name a few, there are a number of great schools within a 15 miles radius that would cater for your child/ren’s educational needs”.

Investors Advantage

Oyo State Government recently commenced the rebuilding and expansion of the major access road from Bashorun to Akobo to a dual carriage expressway which will greatly improve accessibility  to and from Akobo, Legacy Estates massively increasing the. . The future promises great developments for both residential and commercial occupants.

So with our Lagos based consultant from our Ikeja Office, we head to Ibadan, Akobo GRA, located on Eleko Beach Road in the Lekki Peninsula corridor of Lagos. The first thing that catches your eye is the vast estate and the greenery with a well laid out plan, the symmetry, the infrastructure, the overall landscape has a touch of  a western culture air to it, the estate isn’t hidden behind prison like walls, but has a transparency and surreal atmosphere for you to enjoy the ambiance of the estate even before you go through the security gates, which are heavily guarded with manpower and top of the art security system in place.

First Mr Jide took me to his home, a detached 4 bed house, one of the designs on the estate, the pictures on their brochure did the house no justice, for it actually looked bigger going in, every property had their own low gate , a car park for 3 cars .The house itself looked like a London property, all rooms en suite with marble design.
