As you stroll through quiet Alexandra Park, imagine a simpler time. The black & white houses in the estate were built for British officers from Alexandra and Gillman Barracks, as well as medical personnel employed in the nearby Alexandra Military Hospital. This tour delves into architectural features of these iconic houses, their history, and the lifestyle of the people who lived here in the past. 

This estate features four different types of black & white houses. Most of the homes were built in the 1930s, some in tropical Art Deco style, with its streamlined appearance and flat roofs. Some of the houses here are special in that due to the hilly terrain, they were built on pillars of varying heights.
