There is no short­age of exclusive res­i­dences in Hong Kong, where prop­erty is among the most ex­pen­sive in the world. But a new pro­ject de­vel­oped by Wharf (Hold­ings) Lim­ited and Nan Fung Group, man­aged by Whee­lock Prop­er­ties, has set the bar even higher.

Known sim­ply as Mount Ni­chol­son, af­ter its se­cluded epony­mous hill­side lo­ca­tion, the lux­ury de­vel­op­ment is lo­cated in one of Hong Kong’s most pres­ti­gious and sought-af­ter ad­dresses: The Peak. Nes­tled among lush green­ery and prime land­scap­ing, the homes will of­fer ex­pan­sive views from huge win­dows that look out over mag­nif­i­cent Vic­to­ria Har­bour.

To be de­vel­oped in three phases, Mount Ni­chol­son will com­prise 19 de­tached houses and 48 apart­ments. The team of in­ter­na­tional ar­chi­tects and in­te­rior and land­scape de­sign­ers be­hind the pro­ject in­cludes Robert A.M. Stern, ar­chi­tect of 15 Cen­tral Park West (once New York’s most ex­pen­sive apart­ment), de­sign firm Yabu Pushel­berg, David Collins Stu­dio, Cham­pal­i­maud, OLIN; and lo­cal firms in­clud­ing Wong & Ouyang and LWK & Part­ners.

In a city where space is at a pre­mium, these homes are ex­cep­tional in their size and lay­out. Each of the 24 apart­ments of Phase 2 oc­cu­pies an en­tire floor with pri­vate lift lobby. They fea­ture high ceil­ings, vast liv­ing and dining rooms, four sump­tu­ous bed­rooms with en suites, and a lux­u­ri­ous mas­ter suite with his and hers dress­ing rooms, known as the “Great Cham­ber”.

If that’s not enough, res­i­dents of Mount Ni­chol­son also get ac­cess to the Ni­chol­son Club—a rare, large-scale club­house on The Peak, with an 18-me­tre in­door pool, out­door Jacuzzi, state-of-the-art gym and pri­vate yoga room. There is also a pri­vate theatre and lounge and mul­ti­pur­pose ball­room to keep res­i­dents and their guests en­ter­tained.
