Historical value

Lady Clementi's Ride runs through Nam Fung Road Woodland, the only Feng Shui forest in Hong Kong. The mature forest features the greatest number of plant species recorded in Hong Kong and was designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest as a result. Living in Deep Water Bay is all about existing in harmony with Hong Kong's stunning natural assets. Of special note is Deep Water Bay Drive's Crown Wine Cellars, a world-renowned wine cellar and private members club, that has been declared a UNESCO Asia Pacific Heritage Site.
