One of the oldest roads constructed in Hong Kong, Conduit Road in Mid-Levels, was built circa 1910.

It is named after the aqueduct passing underneath, which carries water from the Pok Fu Lam reservoir to Central.

The road was renamed “Izumo-dori” during the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong in the second world war.

It’s on Conduit Road that the Conway Mansion is situated. The development is close to the Mid-Levels escalator, allowing commuters to head down to Central in just 15 minutes – or five minutes by minibus.

The building is known for its practical layout and high efficiency. Typical units have a combined living/dining area, four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen and a maid’s room.

Each floor contains six units, with flats of about 1,500 sq ft. Landscope-Christie’s is marketing a flat, which has a gross floor area of 1,600 sq ft.

The landlord is asking for bids for the home, which has a saleable area of 1,300 sq ft. It also comes with a 2,000 sq ft garden.

The asking rent for the unit is HK$95,000 per month, all inclusive.
