About this District

  • On the top of Hong Kong Island, the Peak is historically regarded as the most prestigious location where the tai-pans used to live. Due to the building height restriction, most properties in the area are townhouses and low-rise units along with a number of exclusive detached houses, all enjoying exquisite harbour or south island sea views. Many of the developments come with communal facilities such as swimming pool, tennis court or gymnasium.
  • Just 15 minutes away from the Central Business District, the area is conveniently located and well served by the Peak Tram, buses and minibuses. Shops, supermarkets and a selection of restaurants are available on the Peak.
  • The neighborhood offers a green environment with many scenic walks, as well as cooler summer temperatures. The drawback, only during the spring and early summer months, is the high humidity and the mist which can cover the higher Peak areas. During this time, homes should be properly dehumidified.
