Panorama from a roof of a Russian's noble house
HuaShi Villa (HuaShi Lou) was built in 1930. It was originally a villa of a Russian aristocrat and later sold to a British businessman. After the Communists took the rule, the building was used for a reception facility. The building is one of the famous landscapes in the Eight Passes villa district for its unique appearance. Located along the eastern stretches of Beach #2, it combines Roman and Greek architectural styles so as to resemble a miniature castle. The structure's tower furnishes postcard views of Taiping Bay. Thick stands of pine trees and manicured gardens surround the mansion making for the perfect setting for a leisurely walk.
