ALTHOUGH this top-storey apartment overlooks the Royal Hongkong Jockey Club in Happy Valley, it is confusingly classified as belonging to the Mid-Levels district. It is situated in an old-style building next to the Adventist Hospital. Everything about it oozes elegance - from its lavish marble-tiled lobby to the extravagant lounge room. The entrance hall is beautifully decorated with beige marble floor tiles, set against stark white walls. White is the flat's dominant feature, making it look bright and clean. The lounge room has a beige-coloured carpet and antique furnishings abound. There is a floral lounge suite and a large teak coffee table. A section of a wall is mirrored, creating the illusion of a much larger space. The end of the room is devoted to a ''music area'', with a piano, table and sofa chairs. A full-width window looks out on to the Jockey Club and across to the mountains. The adjacent dining room is dominated by a huge dining table with seating for 12 people. The room is brightly lit by a glass chandelier. There is easy access to the kitchen, which is simply decorated in white. Three white and grey marble benches are set beneath white cupboards with silver handles. There are two stainless steel sinks, with matching fittings. A relatively large maid's room is next to the kitchen. It features a bunk bed, dressing table and floor-to-ceiling cupboards. There is a laundry area which includes a large stainless steel sink, washing machine, dryer and cupboards. The master bedroom continues the white colour scheme - white benches are built on either side of the bed head. There is a full-width mirror and plenty of storage space inside the white cupboards. A hi-fi system has been built into the ceiling and can be heard throughout the flat, including the bathrooms. The en suite is decorated with white wall and floor tiles. There is a white marble bench and a set of mirrored cupboards. A spacious child's bedroom could also be used as a television room, play room or study. The floor has beige carpeting. Furnishings include a single bed and a white shelving unit. The adjacent bathroom is almost identical to the main bathroom, except for a gold shelving unit. The glass sliding door to the shower area features a gold-plated frame. A glass doorway leads to a steep staircase to the flat roof area. Part of it has been renovated to include an enclosed sitting area and study. It would be an ideal place to play loud music without disturbing the rest of the household. It is the perfect haven for potted plants and is paved with terracotta tiles. There is a set of white wrought-iron outdoor furniture - a table and four chairs - an elaborate white marble fountain, and plenty of space to hang out the washing. The price of the flat includes two parking bays in an undercover car park. All bathrooms and the kitchen have recently been renovated - as has the plumbing and wiring. It is a 10-minute drive from Central and is easy to reach by minibus. FACTFILE LOCATION: 41 Stubbs Road, Mid-Levels. PRICE: $15.5 million. SIZE: 3,100 square feet, plus 2,000 sq ft of roof.
