A house at the end of a cul-de-sac on a quiet street on Astrid Hill is on the market with a price tag of $52 million, with several agents specialising in landed property marketing it. The single-storey Good Class Bungalow (GCB) sits on a 26,983 sq ft, elevated freehold plot. The asking price therefore translates to $1,927 psf.
The owner of the house is Shi Ka Yee, who is in her 70s and has been dubbed the “Ferrari lady” by the press for her misdemeanours while driving her red Ferrari across town. She is said to have caused a traffic jam in the middle of Orchard Road when she stopped her Ferrari in front of a tour bus in 2016, blocking off three out of the five lanes. In February 2014, she reportedly punched another motorist after getting into an argument with him along Telok Ayer Street in the CBD.
