Shadow of China - John Lone (1989) - 11 Pollock's Path, The Peak

The production used two separate properties to portray Henry's house. The other one will follow in a later post but first we see this shot of Henry by his pool and its rather impressive view over the harbour. he's so high I initially thought this might have been filmed at the top of a high rise until a bit of triangulation with the various angles on the surrounding buildings revealed it to be the pool found at 11 Pollock's Path. The pool is still there and can be seen as part of what is marked on the maps as House B1.

A quick google search reveals that this is currently on the market (for sale or rent). If you want to buy it it is going to set you back the tidy sum of HK$268M (US$33.5M) or if you don't want a long term commitment you can rent the place for HK$200K per month. You can check out the details on the Landscope Christies website here. The swimming pool can be seen at the end of the gallery pictures. It doesn't look as though it has changed since filming.
