Built in 1937, King Yin Lei is a rare example of Chinese Renaissance style that combined both Western and Chinese architectural elements. The residence, located along the hillside overlooking the harbour, reflects the growing wealth and rising status of the Chinese community at the time.

The building was sold in August 2007, and soon after demolition works began. The government stepped in and declared the residence a historic site, and subsequently took over the site for restoration and preservation, which finished in 2010.

The outdoor swimming pool sits below the hillside entrance.
