Amid the COVID-19 outbreak, Benjamin Yuen (袁偉豪) and Bowie Cheung (張寶兒) recently purchased a $66 million HKD property together, leading netizens to speculate that the pair will start a family of their own very soon.
Their new home is at Mount Pavilia, a new luxury housing complex in Clear Water Bay, with beautiful gardens and pool facilities. In addition to their 2205-square-feet condo with a 568-square-feet private garden, the couple purchased two parking spots worth an extra $4 million.
When asked whether their joint home purchase signified that wedding bells are in the horizon, Benjamin responded, “This is for both of our benefits. We can treat this as an investment as well. Whether this is just an investment or if we eventually live here, it’s a good start. When we have good news, we’ll let everyone know.”
This is not the first real estate purchase for Bowie, who bought a small apartment in 2017. However, Benjamin is a first-time buyer and saved over $7 million in taxes. He only had to pay $2.7 million Special Stamp Duty (taxes on certain Hong Kong residential properties).
Bowie expressed, “This is the first time we’re buying a property together, and this place is quite expensive. It wasn’t just paid for by one person; we both worked hard to earn this money and set a goal for ourselves.”
As today is Benjamin’s birthday, Bowie was asked if she has a surprise for him. She said, “This is already a good surprise for him! The property might be pricey, but I’m priceless!” Like Benjamin, Bowie also promised to share the good news if the couple has wedding plans.
