111 Emerald Hill
A prime residential area located near Orchard Road, has a unique story to tell. This tranquil, leafy neighbourhood started out as a nutmeg plantation in 1837, owned by Englishman William Cuppage. The land was then sold off in the 1900s, mainly to wealthy Chinese families. These included members of the Peranakan community as well as influential and prominent Chinese individuals of that time. Emerald Hill began to take shape as a distinctive residential estate as houses were built in an architectural style known as Chinese baroque – typified by coloured floral tiles, carved swing doors, shuttered windows and pastel walls. In 1981, the authorities recognised the area’s historical and cultural significance and designated Emerald Hill as one of Singapore’s first conservation projects. Today, many of these vintage houses along with the serene and natural setting remain, forever preserved.
