LA VETTA, KAU TO SHAN
HONG KONG, CHINA
For those who want to pursue a lifestyle filled with beauty and greenery, then La Vetta in Kau To Shan is the perfect choice because it offers contemporary luxury living complemented by the design vision “created by boldness.”
La Vetta is jointly developed by Hong Kong developers Wing Tai Properties and Manhattan Group and exudes opulence and artistry. It is the work of three design masters: award-winning studio Yabu Pushelberg, Italian greens curator Luciano Giubbilei and 150-yearold architecture powerhouse P&T Group, who together express an understated luxury that embodies contemporary and sophisticated living. Born of the finest in contemporary architectural components, its finishes reflect rich, luxurious craftsmanship. High-quality curved glass and stone lend it a streamlined design, allowing residents to enjoy panoramic views of the scenery.
Set on a serene peak, La Vetta overlooks the Tolo Harbour and Sha Tin Racecourse and offers 68 houses that range in saleable areas from 1,635sqft to 5,129sqft. There are also 90 low-density apartments that are available in a variety of layouts featuring one to four bedrooms, in saleable areas ranging from 544sqft to 2,306sqft. A record-high price was paid for La Vetta’s Mansion House 3, which has a saleable area of 4,429sqft and was sold for $174,059,700, or $39,300 per sqft.
WOW FACTOR: While the 158 units are striking on the outside and plush on the inside, they are matched by gardens and a clubhouse that are both just as impressive. Residents can stroll amid gardens adorned with plants shaped and styled like natural works of art, and gaze at an array of sculptures and the reflections of the sky in the pools of the water features. Garden designer Giubbilei is behind the landscaping, undertaken in a modern Italian style to create a serene ambience where utmost attention to detail results in a manicured idyll of greenery. The Villa La Vetta clubhouse was conceived by Yabu Pushelberg around the concept of “living in art.” A leisure retreat, it is enveloped by breathtaking architecture characterised by a clever use of glass. The gallery lounge and evergreen secret garden are partitioned by a wall of curved glass and the club includes a wellness zone, where the gym sits in a crystal glass box next to the indoor heated pool. lavetta.com.hk
