Today on Squarefoot, we explore a rare pre-war walk-up apartment nestled in the charming neighbourhood of Happy Valley.
A narrow entranceway sandwiched between two local eateries, painted wood stairs take you up to a hidden gem that transports you to a bygone era.
Inside, you are greeted by a bright, sweeping open kitchen that seamlessly blends modern and classic design.
The homeowners preserved many of the flat's original characteristics, from the tessellated floors and metal window frames to an exposed brick wall, bringing a unique flair.
The walk-up's cosy reading nook with a rocking chair is the perfect spot to unwind after a long day, while sleek black finishings and soft green tones throughout provide a sophisticated twist.
High ceilings and ceiling fans throughout the house keep the space open and airy, with ample natural light.
Truly a hidden gem, offering a unique slice of 1940s Hong Kong amid the hustle and bustle of the city.
Asking price: HK$28.8 million (~US$3.7 million), cash buy.
