大宅估計建於1930年末至1940年初之間。1948年，它成為香港和日本以外東亞地區的第一所女童院，用於改造輕罪的女童。 主樓樓高3層，貌似像一座城堡，有鋼筋混凝土框架和紅磚砌成的牆。 對線條和幾何的強調體現了裝飾藝術的影響力。 多邊形設計的內部螺旋樓梯是標誌性結構。 該建築已經荒廢了20多年。
Selena, who loves urban exploration, hiking and photography, ventures into a deserted girls’ home.
The mansion is estimated to be built between late 1930 and early 1940. In 1948, it became the first girls’ home in Hong Kong and in East Asia outside Japan, for the residential rehabilitation of delinquent girls. The 3-storey main building looks like a castle and has a reinforced concrete frame with red brick infilled walls. The emphasis on lines and geometry embodies Art Deco influences. The interior spiral staircase in a polygonal design is an iconic feature. The building has been deserted for over 20 years.
Urban exploration is based on the principles of take nothing except picture, leave no trace and not revealing the location.
