Nostalgic Studio in Heritage House

  • 1 bedroom
  • 1 bathroom

Description

It is on the ground floor of a 3 storey heritage house. It is heavily designed as a 'wedding room' in old chinese time. The bed is actual antique & very rare. It has a 'tea corner' which can double as another room. This unit is suitable for a family of 4 or even couple or newly wed! There is a courtyard at the back, where the kitchen, dinning & bathroom are located. The bathroom is still in its original stage, except that new toilet set has been installed(original is the 'squat' type). You can thus see a small water storage sink in the bathroom. You can also notice our DIY rain shower! There is a small fish pond with water falls. If you pay careful attention, you will notice that we have an aquaponic system installed. We provide 4 towels & 4 pillows. There are body shampoo, shampoo & toilet paper. We tried to preserve as much as possible when we renovated this house. We also tried to be as environmental friendly as possible. Thus, you can notice many old window panels, woods & furniture. Almost all windows were salvaged from a near by renovation, where they threw out many old windows & doors. We also salvaged many woods, and we bought reclaimed wood as well. All furnitures are from the original tenant who have stayed there for 4 generations! We fixed and we used. The house is very eco friendly with our DIY solar water heater & air conditioner water collection for toilet flush. There are many eateries around. There are malay and mamak(Indian muslim) restaurants opposite which operate till very late of the night. There is a nice bread bakery 2 doors away, it smells good. There is also a bakery school few doors away, so you can sign up for it if you are interested. It is very convenient with clinic, convenient store around. You can walk to many of the historic sites, we suggest renting bikes. Since it is a wooden heritage house, sound insulation wasn't in the mind when it was first built. So, please walk & talk softly, as the people from upper or lower could hear you easily
