The eastern stretch of Mid-Levels above Happy Valley has long been synonymous with the most elite addresses in Hong Kong.
From the time-honoured residences located on Stubbs Road to spacious apartments and homes on Blue Pool Road, Happy Valley has always been home to Hong Kong’s most well-to-do families and professionals. But for a first-hand residence to appear in such a storied district is rare, with 75 percent of private homes in the area surpassing the 30-year-old mark. Eight Kwai Fong offers the rare opportunity for keen homeowners to have their hand in a fresh property.
Formerly launched in 2015 by New World Development, one of Hong Kong’s preeminent property developers, Eight Kwai Fong was recently acquired by Singaporean conglomerate Farzon Group — it is the business’s maiden luxury residential project in the city.
Tucked behind a discreet, elegant entrance, the property was initially poised as a luxury serviced residence crafted around a mansion style and layout — you’ll still catch such artisanal details today, from its high ceilings to bright and lofty designer interiors, the bespoke furnishings across all the common areas to a growing contemporary art collection adorning the walls of the lobby and clubhouse.
The 28-storey single-tower residence comprises a total of 156 units, with 139 now selling under the wing of its new owners. Ranging from stylish studios to one-bedroom apartments, the luxury condos feature plenty of natural light, with private balconies, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a gorgeous view over the sleepy Happy Valley neighbourhood.
Homes are each outfitted with Miele cooktops and hoods, whilst a residential clubhouse features a common room with large marbled kitchen and dining room accommodating up to 10: a plus for any home chef keen on entertaining guests. There’s also a 24-hour gym, reading lounge, a private garden fitted with a barbecue grill, as well as a rooftop garden for residents to enjoy and soak up the surrounding views.
Besides being located in a quiet, safe and pet-friendly neighbourhood, Eight Kwai Fong is also set in a privileged location when it comes to families with young children looking to carve a path to excellence: It’s located in the Primary School Net number 12, the district is home to some of the city’s top schools such as St. Paul’s Primary Catholic School, Marymount Primary School and Queen’s College. It’s also just a hop and a skip away from international schools such as French International School and Hong Kong Japanese School.
Neighbouring churches, mosques, old galleries and shops, not to mention a growing plethora of restaurants and bars, Eight Kwai Fong is an address that offers a balance of peacefulness and vibrancy, with transport links that take you to Central and Admiralty in just eight minutes. Whether it’s a special dinner at the storied French restaurant Amigo or a weekend browse at F11 Foto Museum, the neighbourhood’s offerings promise that there won’t be a dull moment living at Eight Kwai Fong.
What’s more, the first 50 buyers of Eight Kwai Fong will automatically become complimentary members of Butler Asia‘s residential butler services. Conceived to be the ‘Uber’ of personal home management, Butler Asia’s services run the gamut of home cleaning, closet reorganisation, household repairs and grocery errands — all tailored according to your personal preferences so you can enjoy your home fuss-free after a long day at work.
“Happy Valley is a uniquely prestigious location in the city, and the amount of first-hand residences in the district is exceptionally scarce and limited.” said Dora Wong, Farzon Group’s General Manager of Asset Management in Hong Kong. “We always strive for perfection for every property project we are involved with and it is clear to us that the sky’s the limit when talking about the potentials of this project. The residence is perfect to act as our debut project in Hong Kong.”
Show flats are open to the public at Eight Kwai Fong Happy Valley from 15 October, located on the ninth floor. Contact 852 2818 1388 to make an appointment.
