Cal­i­for­nia Dreamin’

Whee­lock Prop­er­ties drew in­spi­ra­tion from the sun-drenched rolling hills of the Napa Val­ley in Cal­i­for­nia when it came to nam­ing its lat­est de­vel­op­ment in Hong Kong: NAPA. It hopes to bring the spirit of Cal­i­for­nia’s beau­ti­ful wine-grow­ing re­gion to the new pro­ject in Tuen Mun, which is sur­rounded by plenty of lush green­ery of its own.

Of the 460 homes be­ing built at NAPA, there will be 60 de­tached gar­den vil­las and 400 low-rise apart­ments. They will range in size from two to four bed­rooms, with the small­est flats start­ing at about 430sqft and the small­est vil­las start­ing at about 1,700sqft.

The gar­den vil­las will have four dif­fer­ent lay­outs and will be two or three storeys. Each villa will have a pri­vate rooftop gar­den and some will in­clude a pool or Jacuzzi.

NAPA will also have a lux­ury club­house for res­i­dents, Club NAPA, with a range of fa­cil­i­ties in­clud­ing in­door and out­door swim­ming pools, a sports hall, gym, wine cel­lar, func­tion room, chil­dren’s play area, karaoke, en­ter­tain­ment and music rooms and a rooftop gar­den.

And there is more on of­fer in the green sur­rounds. NAPA is lo­cated near the Tai Lam Coun­try Park where you will find, among other hik­ing routes, the Ma­cle­hose Trail, which was re­cently listed by Na­tional Geo­graphic as one of the world’s best hikes.

It’s also close to Golden Beach and the Hong Kong Gold Coast Yacht & Coun­try Club.

Trans­port isn’t a prob­lem—from Tuen Mun MTR sta­tion you can eas­ily catch the train into the city or to the air­port.

The un­der-con­struc­tion Hong Kong-zhuhaimacau Bridge will also pro­vide easy ac­cess be­tween the Pearl River Delta cities, while the Tuen Mun-chek Lap Kok Link will be con­ve­nient for get­ting to the air­port. The pro­posed Tuen Mun Western By­pass will make it quick and easy to get to Qian­hai and the Shen­zhen Bao’an In­ter­na­tional Air­port.

Per­fect for fam­i­lies, NAPA is sit­u­ated close to Har­row In­ter­na­tional School Hong Kong, Chu Hai Col­lege of Higher Ed­u­ca­tion and Ling­nan Univer­sity, an ideal breed­ing ground for our next gen­er­a­tion.

NAPA is ex­pected to be com­pleted in 2018.
