A Legacy For The Privileged Few

Privilege is being part of history

For many Singaporeans, expat and affluent foreigners who have made Singapore their home, the Cairnhill enclave is synonymous with luxury living in the heart of Orchard.

Yet, the history of Cairnhill really began with Charles Carnie in 1840. It was the early days of British colonial rule and Charles was the owner of a nutmeg plantation in the Orchard district. When he built his first estate atop a hill that sprawled more than 27 hectares, the locals started referring to the area as ‘Carnie’s Hill’ which in turn inspired the name ‘Cairnhill Road’.

By the early 1900s, terrace houses started to line Cairnhill Road and were highly sought after by modern day patriarchs including rubber tycoon Tan Kah Kee and Peranakan banker Dr Tan Chin Tuan. Today, the name ‘Cairnhill’ has become both a piece of colonial history and a reference to luxury living in the heart of Orchard.

Privilege is living in an extraordinary location

District 9 is often top of mind for anyone looking for a quality location in Singapore’s residential market. In terms of access to amenities, nothing comes close to the Cairnhill enclave. Located right in the heart of the Orchard, high-end malls like Paragon and Ngee Ann City, world class private medical centers like the Mount Elizabeth Hospital are all within a few minutes’ walk. For a taste of Singaporean cuisine and nightlife, pubs and restaurants that light up Emerald Hill and Somerset area are both a stone’s throw away. With direct connection to the CTE and Bukit Timah Road, commute to the CBD or schools along Bukit Timah are all a matter of minutes.
