About our home

Our family house is a great base to explore Shanghai. We're in the district of Hongqiao, just a few miles from the CBD. The area is popular with expat communities as well as locals.

Our free-standing, 5-bedroom home is spread over three levels. On the ground floor, there is wonderfully bright, large lounge and dining room, adjacent to the separate kitchen. There's also a guest bathroom, laundry room and large storage room on this level. On the first floor is king-bed master bedroom with en-suite bath, shower and walk in closet. Three further bedrooms (two with bunk beds, one with a child's bed) and a family bath/shower room complete this level. On the top level we have a huge additional king-sized bedroom / lounge with two balconies.

We have two cats, who are very maintenance free and our housekeeper can generally take care of them as she visits most days. Each bedroom has a BluAir air purifier and the living room has an IQAir machine, so the air in our house is very clean and unaffected by our pets. We also have ducted aircon and heating throughout.

Our lawned garden is fully fenced and includes a large trampoline, a gas BBQ, swing seat and dining table and chairs for 8.

The house is within a tree-lined private community of 50 houses and is one of the most pleasant places to live in Shanghai. The onsite management company, based in the clubhouse, is able to help you at any time. You can use our onsite clubhouse with indoor and outdoor pools, gym, sauna, children's playroom and flood-lit tennis court. There's also an outdoor children's playground and small soccer pitch.
