Offering space, seclusion and spectacular views within easy walking distance of the city, there’s plenty of reasons why the brand-new 3 MacDonnell Road development is a great choice whatever your situation. If you are looking for a new home, here are five reasons we think this Mid-Levels apartment complex ticks all the right boxes if you are looking for a new place to live in Hong Kong.
Whether you’ve lived in Hong Kong your whole life, or you’re brand new to the city, you’ll know that larger living spaces are seriously hard to come by. That’s not the case at 3 MacDonnell Road, though, where the development team has made space a priority; there are only 20 duplexes apartments here, each with four roomy ensuite bedrooms with big bathrooms, bright and airy living and dining spaces that are ideal for entertaining, and expansive designer kitchens.
The interiors strike a balance between contemporary and classic, with a neutral palette offset by luxury finishes. Key features include warm timber floors, understated marble wall accents and “one touch” smart home control for effortless everyday living. Exterior features are thoughtful too, with attractive wrought-iron accents and stone balconies making the most of the renowned Hong Kong skyline just beyond.
The position of this Mid-Levels apartment complex is enviable – it’s just a few minutes’ walk to Central’s offices and shops, yet it still offers privacy in a prestigious spot. It’s green, too: the sprawling Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens are just across Garden Road, and Hong Kong Park is just a short walk down Cotton Tree Drive. Opposite the development, Coda Plaza offers easy access to all the essentials, with an international supermarket and a selection of restaurants.
Every duplex in the property comes with its own covered car park, and there’s a service station located outside for easy refuelling. The complex also has its own clubhouse, with a gym and spacious pool, along with a concierge service to ensure that life continues to run smoothly, even when your schedule is overflowing.
Finding the right school is always the first piece of the location puzzle in Hong Kong, and 3 MacDonnell Road is well placed for two English Schools Foundation (ESF) campuses – Island School and Glenealy – as well as Carmel, an independent Jewish day school, plus two elite local establishments – St Paul’s College and St Joseph’s School. The road is also covered by a comprehensive network of school bus routes. Younger children are also well catered to, with a number of preschools and a wide variety of playgroups nearby.
