This used to be the family home of the wealthy Malacca-born businessman Choa Kim Keat (1858 - 1907) whom Kim Keat Road is named after. In restoring the house and updating the interior to suit modern living, close attention was paid to respecting its historical integrity. The cut porcelain pieces adorning the front façade of the house were stripped of paint to recover their original finish and colour while the scroll plaques above the 1st storey windows were masterfully restored to return the house to its former glory.
