Renting a house is as important as buying a building. The HILLSIDE, developed by the Sino Group, is located at 9 Cheong On Street, Wan Chai, Hong Kong. It has mastered the advantages of Hong Kong Island’s commercial core area and is expected to attract the attention of Central Talent.
All for one room unit
The project is a single-storey 11-story residential building with two units on the first floor. There are 22 units with a leased floor area of 558 and 559 square feet (available area of 362 and 364 square feet). All units are one. Room separated. Each room has a 22-square-foot terrace outside and the bathroom is connected to a 16-square-foot work platform. Each unit has an open kitchen with a refrigerator, cooker hood, electromagnetic cooking stove, microwave oven and 2-in-1 washer-dryer. The bathroom has basic facilities such as sinks, toilets, cokes, electric water heaters and exhaust fans. The rental period of the flats is two years. The monthly rent is from HK$22,000. The rent is between HK$60 and HK$70. This is a reasonable level compared with the rent of HK$59 to HK$72 for the one-bedroom flats in the same district. The unit has been equipped with curtains, wardrobes, split-type inverter air-conditioners, hydraulic bed frames and bed mattresses, as well as pre-installed fiber-optic Internet access equipment. Tenants can apply to network providers.
Even terrace and work platform
The developer has opened the existing building and decorated the demonstration unit to the media. It is located in the A room on the 8th floor. The unit has a small entrance. Only a small part of the room can be seen outside the door to ensure the privacy of the residents. After passing through the entrance hall, the hall of the square pattern can be seen. The living room is placed in a gray comb, and the golden corner next to it can be used to plant small potted plants. There is a sufficient distance between the comb and the TV cabinet. There is a round metal coffee table and a square gray carpet in between, one round and one soft, and the design is full of thoughts. Outside the hall, there is a 22-square-foot terrace with a floor-to-ceiling glass door that looks out over Hong Kong Island. On the other side of the unit is a dining room and an open kitchen. The dining room has a round dining table for two. The kitchen has a curved work bench and an induction cooker for simple cooking. There is a double bed in the bedroom, and white bedding is used. Under the sunlight introduced by the double-sided floor-to-ceiling windows, the light is extraordinarily bright. There is a double door wardrobe in the room, and there is also a hanging cabinet above the bed, which has enough storage space. The bathroom is placed in the bedroom to create a suite layout. The bathroom has large windows and the frosted glass door can be used to go out to the work platform. Ventilation is not a problem.
There are no decoration demonstration households in the current building, such as the “Responsible Standards". These units have no furniture, only large beds and various storage cabinets in the bedroom. The kitchen is cleverly designed with L-shaped kitchen cabinets. In addition to washing machines and refrigerators, there are hidden assemblies. There are also stretch panels and brackets under the microwave oven. When pulled out, it becomes a dining table for convenient dining. The kitchen has a combination of movable drawers with pulleys, which can completely pull out the drawers and move around. It is very convenient. After the hydraulic bed frame of the bedroom is uncovered, there are also a large number of positions under the bed, and the storage space is abundant. Although this rental home is not a serviced residence, it also provides 24-hour security service to make tenants feel more at ease. As for the rooftop of the building, there is a vast garden with outdoor dining tables and chairs and leisure seats for residents to enjoy leisure time.
Near MTR Wan Chai Station
The largest selling point of the project is the commercial core of Hong Kong Island. It is about 8 to 10 minutes walk from MTR to Wan Chai Station. Tenants can also find public transport such as buses, minibuses and trams on Hennessy Road and Johnston Road. The project is adjacent to Lidong Street and Xingjie Community. The area is famous for its fashionable restaurants, European and American restaurants, cafes and bars. It is also close to convenient stores and supermarkets. If you are looking for a large shopping spot, you can walk to the Pacific Place on the MTR Admiralty Station for about 10 minutes to enjoy the city life.
