Jesselton Crescent in Jesselton Heights, Penang (2 November, 2012)

Jesselton Heights is the fillet mignon of Penang real estate. This choicest cut of land is located to the west of Jalan Utama (formerly Western Road). It occupies land that was once a quarry. Thereafter the government used it as quarters for senior executives. By the 1970's, captains of local industries have moved in to build their mansions in Jesselton Heights.

Located next door to the Penang Turf Club Jesselton Heights is a leafy neighbourhood that offer those who can afford it the serenity and seclusion. Sentry is posted at the entries on Jesselton Road so that access can be controlled between midnight and 6:00 am daily.

The main road into the Jesselton Heights area is Jesselton Road (Jalan Jesselton). Making right angles to it are Jesselton Avenue (Lebuhraya Jesselton) and Jesselton Crescent (Lengkok Jesselton). Most of the properties in this neighbourhood are detached bungalows, many dating to the 1970's and 80's, and have been renovated repeatedly by the occupants to keep with times.

Public Transport

If you have to depend on public transport, Jesselton Heights is not a place for you. No, there are no buses here. Nobody in this neighbourhood would be caught dead in one. Nevertheless, Magazine Circus is a mere 3.6 km away, so Jesselton Heights is well tucked away from the bustle without being too distant from the city centre.


St Christopher's International Primary School is a stone's throw away. Sekolah Menengah Perempuan St George is a public school around the corner. The nearest market from Jesselton Heights is the Pulau Tikus Market. The nearest shopping mall is Midlands One Stop, which caters to the lower middle class market, and Gurney Plaza, which is more upmarket. The nearest petrol station is the Shell at Burmah Road beside Midlands One Stop. The nearest hospital are the Penang General Hospital, Penang Adventist Hospital, Island Hospital and Gleneagles Medical Centre.
