The quiet life
PACIFIC VIEW, nestled in Chung Hom Kok on the peaceful southern side of Hong Kong Island, is a quality high-rise residential development with five towers each of 36 to 40 storeys. All 374 units offer views of Tai Tam and the South China Sea. The project was developed by Sun Hung Kai Properties and 134 units in towers two and three are under Signature Homes' portfolio for leasing. The development was finished in 1990 and has attracted those who seek a break from the fast pace of city living. The business district is only 30 minutes away so residents can appreciate a quiet but convenient retreat.
DESIGN AND LAYOUT
The towers have two flats per floor, offering two, three and four bedrooms. Kitchens are fully equipped and designed by Poggenpohl, bathrooms are fitted with marble surfaces and master bathrooms have separate shower stalls. Typical units range from three bedrooms of 1,906 sqft to four bedrooms of 2,054 sqft. There are luxurious duplex units on the top floors that span almost 4,000 sqft. All units have high-quality internal finishes. Combined living and dining rooms have a balcony to enjoy panoramic sea views and floor-to-ceiling windows provide plenty of natural light. The modern interior design is simple and uncluttered, with light coloured materials and furnishings.
Chung Hom Kok residents can commute by shuttle bus to Stanley and Chai Wan. The development is next to the American Club, and is convenient for many shops, restaurants and recreational facilities in Tai Tam, Stanley and Repulse Bay. Hair Pin Beach and St Stephen's Beach are close by.
Pacific View is equipped with a 30,000 sqft clubhouse that offers residents a full range of recreational facilities, including a gym, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, tennis and squash courts, and golf amenities. The restaurant and banquet rooms are ideal for private gatherings or parties. There are also outdoor playgrounds and a podium garden.
