A five-star HK apartment: Only for the privileged

If owning a home in Hong Kong is a distant dream, acquiring your own five-star apartment probably goes beyond your wildest dream.

In this 1,569 square foot condominium in Ma On Shan, designer Eric Fung uses extensively a dark color tone and punctuates it with rose gold and other light pigments such as pearl white and beige to achieve a modern classic look.

Stepping into the living room, it’s impossible to miss the full Hi-Fi system sitting right below the wall-mounted television set.

To cater to the owner’s quest for the finest music, the living room doubles as a home theater.

A classy chandelier descends from the ceiling above the dining corner, which also houses the owner’s wine collection.

In the master bedroom—huge by Hong Kong standards—what instantly attracts attention is the floor-to-ceiling wardrobe, with sliding glass doors that are meant to make the already large space look even bigger.

Developed by Cheung Kong (Holdings) Ltd., Sausalito, where the apartment is located, costs about HK$10,000 per square foot, according to Centadata. To lease a 500 sq ft plus unit, the monthly rental is around HK$15,000, or HK$29 psf.
