In this new monthly series, we explore the most beautiful and unique property listings in Hong Kong

A Piece Of Old Hong Kong

Imagine owning half of a South Bay colonial building. You could make it happen for HK$688 million (approximately US$88.4 million).

This sale comes with two units at 23 South Bay Road, which dates back to 1950. One is a five-bedroom ground floor duplex complete with a private garden, and the other is located on the upper floor and features a roof terrace. Both offer peaceful surroundings, plus open views of the South China Sea. Inside, find the usual suspects in a luxury home: a sleek kitchen with marble countertops, large bathrooms with plenty of natural light, a study and home gym, and sizeable bedrooms. 

The two units total 6,196 sq ft, taking up one-half of the beautiful building. The buyer could also potentially look at combining them to create one home.
