SWEEPING views across the hills of Sha Tin, two terraced roof tops and a beautiful courtyard are the main attractions of this elegant duplex. Fir trees line the landscaped garden which begins at the courtyard and stretches to the back of the house. The owners are in the process of extending the garden another 500 square feet, enhancing the natural beauty of the home's setting. They have done a splendid job utilising the space of the home; even the garage roof has been converted into a terraced garden, complete with outdoor furniture. The entry to the garage is through a wrought iron gate. Floor-to-ceiling shelving gives the garage ample storage space. A covered courtyard is located between the garage and the front door. This terracotta-tiled area is ideal for potted plants and outdoor furniture. Peach marble is featured on the front porch which leads to an elaborate stained-glass door. The entry room is decorated with antique furnishings and wall mirrors. A small powder room is off the entry room. It has an olive-tiled floor with white wall tiles. There is a beige sink with silver fittings. An open living and dining area has a most homey atmosphere. The two rooms are separated by a small stairway with a white balustrade. The dining room is dominated by a large teak table with seating for eight people. A selection of antique furnishings adds to the richness of the room. Full-length sliding glass doors open to the garden. The living room is decorated in traditional English style. Two lounge suites are next to a large fireplace, above which is a beautiful white mantlepiece. More sliding glass doors open on to a sitting room which is being renovated. The room is brightly lit by a large skylight and full width windows. The floor is paved with terracotta tiles. It would make an ideal television room, a child's playroom or a study. Ample storage space is provided by a spacious alcove under the staircase. The kitchen is simply decorated with a white floor and wall tiles. A set of bench cupboards is bordered in pale blue. There are two sets of work benches and a large serving bench for informal dining. Adjacent is a maid's room and separate laundry. The pale plum carpeted stairway leads up to the master bedroom; a stark and bright room which looks out on to a large balcony. White floor-to-ceiling wardrobes and a white shelving unit at the bed head provide plenty of storage space. The en suite is a striking mix of plum and beige. Near the master bedroom is a sitting room that could be converted into another study or library. Plenty of book shelves and comfortable chairs make it an ideal reading room. The second bedroom was originally two rooms but has been converted into a large bedroom and sitting area. One side of the room features two single beds and built-in wardrobes. The other side has been made into a television room with a black shelving unit and a lounge suite. The nearby bathroom has white wall and floor tiles, a plum bathtub and silver fittings. There is a white shelving unit with ample storage space. Another stairway leads to a large terraced roof which would be ideal for entertaining. FACTFILE LOCATION: 1-7 Kau To Shan Road Sha Tin.
