There’s something for everyone at Mayfair By the Sea I & II – everyone, that is, who enjoys an environment that combines classical elegance with a relaxing seafront lifestyle. The development in Pak Shek Kok – conveniently close to major urban areas, but also in a tranquil location by the sea – features almost 1,100 units that include towers, low-rise buildings and houses, offering a range of choices to discerning buyers.
The 15 low-rise buildings of Sino Land’s Mayfair By The Sea I & II feature mainly middle-sized units of 619 to 768 square feet, with two or three bedrooms; and in its 18 towers, medium-sized to large units of 646 to 2,037 square feet, with two to four bedrooms. The 12 three-storey houses, meanwhile, cover massive areas of between 3,014 and 3,649 square feet.
According to Victor Tin, associate director of the Sales Department of the property’s developer Sino Land, the various options on offer at the development appeal to a range of different groups of potential purchasers and residents.
“It caters to the needs of different buyers,” says Tin. “The low-rises and the towers appeal to first-time home purchasers, mainly families, and the towers also appeal to purchasers who own a home already but want to change to a waterfront environment or to a bigger home. The houses, meanwhile, appeal to traditional, large and wealthy local families who want to enjoy a more leisure-oriented lifestyle.”
Whatever size and style of accommodation they’re looking for, buyers at Mayfair By the Sea I & II will all get to experience its uniquely appealing aesthetic, with traditional European neoclassical architecture conjuring up a particularly elegant vision of luxury.
Those luxurious surroundings are perfectly counterpointed by the proximity to nature and the glorious views offered by the development. Residents will be able to enjoy breathtaking unobstructed views either of Tolo Harbour and Plover Cove Reservoir out to sea, or of the beautiful green mountains of the Pat Sin Leng range that lie beyond them.
“Properties with nice views – especially sea views – are always popular with residents,” says Tin. “Unobstructed sea views help to enhance residents’ sense of a leisurely lifestyle. As well as the sea views, at Mayfair By The Sea I & II you can feel the sea breeze and enjoy all the benefits of waterfront living.
The immediate neighbours of the project are equally impressive: the surrounding residential developments are also luxurious and exclusive, making the whole of Pak Shek Kok a particularly sought-after area. As well as the sea, the project sits right next to both The Chinese University of Hong Kong and Hong Kong Science Park. The prestigious EtonHouse International Pre-School also makes the development its home, while the UK’s renowned Malvern College plans to open a Hong Kong campus nearby. The development boasts a comprehensive VICTOR TIN shopping arcade on site, but for shopping trips further afield it’s also within easy reach of the University MTR station, putting Sha Tin just a short hop away and Hong Kong’s main retail and entertainment districts just a few stops further.
Mayfair By The Sea I & II are the latest projects in Sino Land’s Mayfair collection, and have inherited the grandeur of the developer’s other two premium projects – The Mayfair in Mid-Levels and One Mayfair in Kowloon Tong. Between them, Mayfair By The Sea I & II comprise 1,091 units as well as shared facilities that are open to residents of both developments.
At about 100,000 square feet, Club Mayfair, the development’s magnificent clubhouse, is the largest among all of its luxurious neighbours. It benefits from the same classical elegance and attention to detail in its design as the rest of Mayfair By The Sea I & II, and offers residents a range of 27 different facilities and dedicated services, including a spa, function rooms, a children’s area, lounges, a courtyard, a 25-metre indoor pool, a bowling alley and a sports hall.
Other key facilities include the Mayfair Lane shopping arcade, which features a range of retailers including a supermarket, a convenience store, a Chinese restaurant and a cafe. The lush, green, healthy environment at the development is enhanced by the 80,000-square-foot communal garden and play area, along with an 80-metre outdoor pool.
Sino Land’s reputation as a developer, says Tin, is built on both hardware and what he calls “heartware”. The hardware part of the equation includes everything from providing comprehensive clubhouse facilities to ensuring its homes are of the best possible quality when they’re handed over to their purchasers.
“Sino projects have received high scores in several examination programmes in the industry for propertyhandover quality,” says Tin. Heartware, he continues, involves “an excellent property handover team, follow-up with residents on any issues with their homes, instruction on how to use appliances and so on, and an excellent property management service, which is all about residents’ needs.”
That property management service extends to Sino Land’s Premium Living, an exclusive butler service that can help residents with anything from tasks such as calling a taxi, making a restaurant reservation or arranging a delivery through to assistance with event planning and catering, all available 24 hours a day.
That commitment to service and quality combine with a desirable location and elegant design to mark out Mayfair By The Sea I & II as a unique opportunity for Hong Kong property purchasers.
