"The Kadoorie Estate remains an oasis of tranquillity amidst Hong Kong's dramatic development of the last 80 years. My Family is proud to have been one of the founders and maintains to this day a unique environment in the heart of Kowloon."
- The Honourable Sir Michael Kadoorie
Nestled in the heart of bustling Kowloon, hidden beneath a canopy of trees, lies The Kadoorie Estate – an exclusive residential community that has long been one of Hong Kong’s best kept secrets.
Described as an ‘oasis of calm in a fast-paced city’, the eight-hectare Estate is situated on Kadoorie Hill. Its two wide boulevards – Kadoorie Avenue and Braga Circuit – are home to 85 historic houses as well as St. George’s Court, a low-rise apartment building. This peaceful enclave benefits from all the conveniences of modern city living and is readily accessible to the business and commercial hubs of West Kowloon and Central District, as well as the traditional flower, bird, and goldfish markets in the vicinity.
The history of the area dates back to 1931, when a barren hillside was purchased, upon which was built a garden city surrounded by greenery, convenient in location and beautiful in design. The original emphasis on low-density living, green spaces, spacious homes and architectural integrity remain distinguishing features of The Estate today.
