The pair have bought properties in Shanghai, Hong Kong and other places during their marriage. Sina reported that their downtown Shanghai mansion is worth US$26 million, while Sunday More claimed that the couple also has at least 10 properties in total, valued at a staggering US$115 million.
But there’s one stand-out property that Lau has shared subtle glimpses of on her social media: the May Tower mansion.
Let’s take a peek inside …
Inside Carina Lau and Tony Leung’s Mid-Levels May Tower mansion
Much to fans’ delight, Lau sometimes shares pics of her May Tower mansion in Hong Kong’s Mid-Levels West on Instagram.
HK01 reported that the couple bought the property in 1995. It’s unclear how much Lau and Leung paid for the mansion, but according to China Times, it was worth US$12 million in market value last year.
Based on photos shared by Lau on her social media, the home’s interiors are tastefully decorated indeed. The living room features deep green walls and the patterned furniture creates a retro aesthetic. It’s all topped off with European-style chandeliers.
According to Mirror Media, a single one of those chandeliers retails for about US$130,000 alone.
There are also large floor-to-ceiling windows, while the balcony looks spacious and looks out onto the glittering Victoria Harbour. We can also spot a desk piled with magazines, books and a gorgeous flower bouquet.
The dining room features a predominantly black and white palette with an artwork depicting snow-capped mountains next to the main table.
Her home is so ornate, netizens often liken it to a Victorian museum, according to Today Online.
A family home
Lau has also repeatedly posted photos of her family visiting the May Tower mansion. On Mother’s Day in 2020, she shared a photo of herself and her mother on Instagram.
In the photo, Lau’s mum is seen holding a large bouquet of flowers and has been praised by fans for her youthful looks and natural glow.
