FINDING the right property at the right price can pose something of a headache to would-be home owners. Positioned on Magazine Gap Road, the apartment now available for sale in Chung Tak Mansion could be just the thing for anyone seeking a home that is both spacious and convenient. The agent, Kelly McKenzie, expects the 10-year-old property to be sought after because of its prime location and reasonable asking price of $19 million, which includes fittings and fixtures. The monthly management fee is $4,200. The building has a second entrance on the enviable residential address of Bowen Road and is just a short downhill stroll to Central. Although it is on the second floor, the apartment is effectively on the seventh floor on the Bowen Road side, which gives it a good skyline. Each floor has just one apartment providing added privacy. Visitors will be impressed by the way the lift opens out into an attractive foyer which creates the impression that you have already entered the apartment. Clever use of full-length mirrors enhances the feeling of welcome, and magnifies the space. Inside the apartment, your eye runs the full sweep of the building, once more emphasising space. The architects have made optimal use of all 2,850 square feet in a well-designed layout with lots of potential for creating a comfortable home. It boasts new parquet flooring in excellent condition throughout. An unusual and attractive feature of the harbour-facing dining room and living room are the Thai-carved wooden screens that have been fitted at the base of the windows. The antique screens are worth $600,000 and come with the apartment. There is a separate sitting area overlooking Magazine Gap Road which has wall units running the full length of one wall. Leading off from it is the well-appointed master bedroom, which looks out across the trees on Bowen Road and receives plenty of light. It has fitted white-slatted wardrobes, and comes with a thick pile fitted cream carpet. The en suite bathroom has a step up to the bath, and the sparkling white fixtures and tiles make it fresh and bright. Also leading from the additional sitting area is the second bedroom and en suite, and a guest toilet. The third bedroom faces Magazine Gap Road and is now used as a study. All three bedrooms are roomy and have ample cupboard space. The dining room leads off to a fully-fitted luxury kitchen with top-quality wooden units. Adjoining it is the large maid's quarters with modern shower room. FACT FILE: LOCATION: 2/F, Chung Tak Mansion, 2 Magazine Gap Road, Mid-Levels, Hong Kong.
