Italianate Renaissance

8 July 2017

No. 64 Kennedy Road was the private residence of the Ngan family for decades but equally has been left abandoned for a long time now too.  The plot of land was originally owned by Ho Sau-hong who bought the land in 1905. The site was sold in 1924 to a woman named Wong Yik-mui, the wife of Ngan Shing-kwan, a bus tycoon who died in 2001 aged 100. 


There is a guard and he won't let you in to have a look around but you can see the garage at street level and the octagonal turret tower looking up from Kennedy Road. There's a good view looking down from Bowen Road where this magnificent old mansion sits in overgrown grounds next to high rise buildings.
