ointly developed by Wing Tai Properties and Manhattan Group, La Vetta, located at the peak of Kau To Shan close to Shatin, is an example of a low-density luxury residential project making headlines in the Hong Kong property sector.

Featuring 68 individual houses and eight towers of one to four-bedroom low-rise apartments, La Vetta is a masterpiece of collaboration between world-renowned designer, Yabu Pushelberg, London-based Italian landscape designer, Luciano Giubbilei and architects P&T. Together, they set a bold vision for contemporary urban living. Aside from its stylish clubhouse and breathtaking interior design, one of the highlights of the 158-unit development is ‘House 1’, otherwise known as Magnum House. As La Vetta’s largest house it has a saleable area of 476 square metres, and incorporates four en-suite bedrooms, two parking spaces and a swimming pool nestled in an expansive 280 square metre private garden. Described as the ultimate deluxe private residence, this single residential unit embodies the essence of the entire concept of luxury living and commands spectacular views of Shatin Racecourse and the landscape that surrounds the Shing Mun River. For Chung Chi Lam, Executive Director of Sales and Marketing at Wing Tai Properties, its extraordinary curvilinear design with its glass and stone exterior is a showcase of ingenious craftsmanship. However, what really stands out, especially in Hong Kong, is the use of German oak flooring throughout. Interior designer Yabu Pushelberg are well known for their use of statement spiral staircases, not least in their design of The Four Seasons Hotel in Kuwait and New York’s Edition Hotel. In the case of Magnum House, the distinctive design of the spiral staircase stands as a sculptural feature and centerpiece of the entire house, seamlessly linking the three storeys of the building
