HONG KONG'S LEADING LUXURY PROPERTY DEVELOPER
In the world of property development, National Properties has distinguished itself as a leader and innovator in creating exclusive high-end residences, unique commercial buildings and boutique hotels. From its inception in 1992, National Properties strove to fill a niche in the property market, creating the most luxurious and unique developments. The Company has commissioned some of the world's top architects and designers, such as Andrée Putman, Robert A. M. Stern, Christian Liaigre, Antonio Citterio, Remo Riva and Joseph Fung.
Every National Properties building is characterised by certain hallmarks - spectacular views, a superior level of refinement and an elegant living environment. Materials are sourced globally and selected as much for their aesthetics as for their durability. Great care is taken in looking at the smallest details of each property, from the landscaping and lighting to the cornices and door handles.
The following is a selection of National Properties' developments:
37 DEEP WATER BAY
37 Deep Water Bay, called “The Dream House”, was built in 1998 and still remains one of Hong Kong's most expensive single house residences. Designed in the Neoclassical style, it incorporates soaring Corinthian columns, decorative cornices, crowning balustrades and elaborate ornamentation. There is a formal entrance and grand staircase, six spacious bedrooms, a sweeping dining room, two kitchens and games room, all decorated in antique French Oak floors, German timber-framed windows and handpicked European marble. The grounds include a 23-metre swimming pool with an inlaid Bisazza mosaic design and nautilus-shell fountains.
Bluewater, located in Tai Tam, is a low-density residence of gracious living on the south side of Hong Kong Island, offering generous proportions, ornate finishes, discreet privacy and simple elegance. Built in 1997, Bluewater made history as the most expensive residential building of its kind and the first with floor-to-ceiling picture windows in all principal rooms. The 25-metre infinity pool encrusted with Italian mosaics was also a first for a residential development. There are only 14 sumptuous flats, each with its own lift lobby. With over 10-foot ceilings, Bluewater enjoys stunning and unobstructed views of the South China Sea.
