Lake Silver is at the heart of many of Hong Kong's most scenic spots. The area includes Starfish Bay conservation area, Hoi Ha Wan Marine Park, Plover Cove Reservoir, eight geological parks, five country parks and a plethora of beaches, nature trails and tree walks.

For status-seeking Hongkongers craving abodes that give them commanding heights, Lake Silver affords majestic views of the Tolo Channel, Tolo Harbour, Plover Cove Reservoir and the Pat Sin Leng mountain range. The panoramic vision of Sai Kung Peninsula and Ma On Shan Country Park complete the backdrop.

The project is a joint venture between Sino Land and the MTR Corporation. It is situated above Wu Kai Sha MTR Station.

With seven residential towers, Lake Silver has 2,169 units. Over 1,800 units are already sold, and the remaining units are mainly more than 1,000 sqft units with three or four bedrooms, two of which are en suite.

There is also a select number of special units such as Lake Palace, designed to contain a private swimming pool, Lake Villa, Lake Sky and the Lake Garden.

Such specially designed units are unique in the Wu Kai Sha area. All Lake Silver flats are designed with balconies and environmentally friendly working platforms for a stylishly enviable living environment.

Moreover, with the government's infrastructure projects, such as Route 8 and the Sha Tin to Central link, connectivity has never been better. Lake Silver is strategically linked to every part of Hong Kong and outlying areas.

One of Lake Silver's key selling points is its 360,000 sqft clubhouse, entitled the Palace by the Sea, which features landscaped areas. Combined with the iconic features of the Sino Group's luxury residential properties - the Faberge-inspired banquet room at Mount Beacon, the waterfront edgeless swimming pool at One SilverSea in West Kowloon, the classic European architectural design and modern aesthetics of The Palazzo in Sha Tin - Lake Silver sets lofty new standards for clubhouse design, both in terms of elegance and comfort.

The clubhouse has nearly 80 leisure facilities, with iconic features such as the Sapphire Faberge Banquet and the Ruby Faberge Banquet.

Using lots of glass to create the effect of an opal-shaped sapphire floating on the lake, residents can lounge around for an entire day should they so choose, leisurely enjoying their breakfast and afternoon tea.

The Ruby Faberge Banquet is conceptually the same as the Sapphire Faberge Banquet, and it is a terrific place to chill luxuriously and to host parties and events.

Not to be outdone, Lake Sapphire also boasts a 50-metre outdoor swimming pool with a design based on European lakes.

It also connects with a 25-metre indoor swimming pool, all of which, coupled with a glass top, creates a resort-style atmosphere.

Another worthwhile feature of Lake Silver's Palace by the Sea clubhouse is the Island of Diamond, the residents' private entertainment area that contains three directors' houses, Villa Ocean Dream, Villa Excelsior and Villa Centenary - two of which have been designed with outdoor swimming pools where residents can hold gatherings.

The Lobby of Pearl is strikingly beautiful - it's a lobby shuttle lift that directly connects to the Wu Kai Sha MTR Station. Using lots of glass, it almost seems like a shiny jewel box floating in the lake.

The Spa Paradise has more than 12,000 sqft for residents to unwind in. The Spa Paradise features family spa suites and private spa suites.

The former section is just like a spa centre, equipped with an individual spa, outdoor spa, bathrooms and changing room. One can enjoy a spa at home any time.

Moreover, the landscaped gardens distributed throughout the project, such as the Sunrise Garden, Garden of Emerald and Garden of Love, are truly sites to behold, with most commanding views of the clubhouse.

For those contemplating upgrading their domicile to luxurious living amid the tranquillity of Wu Kai Sha and the Sai Kung area, visit Lake Silver's show flat at the Tsim Sha Tsui Centre on Salisbury Road in Kowloon. Your family will be glad you did as this address will soon be one sought after by Hong Kong's A-list community.
