Every major city has one - an exclusive area with a smart address. So where is it in Hong Kong? The Peak? Probably, but far too humid. Repulse Bay? Only if you are content living in an apartment. So where is the most desirable place to live? It seems that of late, quite a few well-known faces have been moving into Kadoorie Avenue on Kowloon side. And it's not just business folk who have decided to make this little enclave their home. A contingent of showbiz people is also moving in. Among them, Taiwanese actress-turned-director Sylvia Chang (right), pop idol-turned-actor Leslie Cheung, Alan Tang and the King of Canto-pop, Andy Lau (left). Sally Leung and her husband Henry also recently moved to Kadoorie Avenue, joining a cluster of prominent people such as Kathryn Louey, Maria Lee, Larry Tchou, Norman and Serena Chan, Vanessa Choy, Anthony Ng, Jonathan and Dorothy Cheng, Raymond and Tuerta Shaw (parents of Claudia Shaw d'Auriol), Commercial Radio's head honcho Winnie Yu, Lingki Chau and William and Mazie Ng. So what's so attractive about this area? One new resident tells me it's the only place in Kowloon where you can have a free-standing house with a garden, and not have a plane fly over every five minutes. As there is a finite number of houses, it ensures exclusivity, a definite requirement for such high-profile people. Most houses on Kadoorie Avenue are only for rent from the Kadoorie family although a few are owner-occupied. The nearby Braga Circuit is also a choice area. The Western Harbour Crossing has reduced travelling time and it seems people no longer mind living in Kowloon.
