{Elegance meets convenience}

BUILDING Wellgan Villa is an 18-storey, single-tower, residential block in Kowloon Tong. Developed by Dorro Properties and completed last October, it consists of 24 units priced from $8,500 a square foot.

DESIGN Each apartment has two balconies, one at the front and one at the back. All are south facing and have many windows to let in plenty of light and cross ventilate the living room and master bedroom. The interiors have quality fittings and materials, and walnut timber flooring is used together with high-quality, 2.5-inch solid wood front doors. The en suite bathrooms are in light colours with imported ceramic tiles and double-basin vanity tops. Typical apartments also have a servant's room. The ground-floor foyer features elegant Italian stone flooring and fibre-optic decorative lighting. A five-metre mosaic dominates the entrance.

LOCATION Wellgan Villa is situated in a prestigious, low-density residential area consisting mainly of three-storey blocks. The development falls within the No. 41 school network and is near kindergartens, primary and high schools as well as international schools. Wellgan Villa is close to many bus routes and is within walking distance of Festival Walk, a mammoth shopping complex that offers a variety of speciality shops and restaurants, an ice rink and a cinema complex.

FACILITIES Wellgan Villa provides a luxurious clubhouse, including a children's play area, a landscaped garden, a gymnasium and a resort-style, outdoor swimming pool. There are also various public parks and sports halls in the Kowloon Tong neighbourhood.

LAYOUT There are 22 units from floors five to 22. The 1,545 sq ft units each have three bedrooms. Typical A units have partial sea views and full views of the old Kai Tak airport site. The B units have views of Mongkok and a park from the living room. On the fifth floor there are two units each with a garden of 64 sq ft. The top two floors feature five-bedroom duplex units. Unit A is 3,137 sq ft and unit B is 3,152 sq ft. The ceilings are nearly five metres high and each duplex has an internal staircase to a private rooftop garden.
