Very much hoping I can source some advice from the collective wisdom of this forum, I'm sort of at wit's end. Really love living in HK, but am getting increasingly discouraged by how hard it is to find a quiet, relatively affordable home in this city (that isn't miles from anywhere). My son goes to school in Pok Fu Lam and I'd like to stay in the area, but the only three-bedroom place I found in my budget range (around 20K) was Chi Fu, where I seem to have drawn the short end of the stick when it comes to neighbours -- I have a piano student on one side and a guy who likes to randomly blast music on the other. I've tried reasoning with both but to no real avail -- apparently we're the odd family out for wanting to turn in around 10 pm most nights. I also think it has to do with the general acoustics of what is a pretty tired old estate.
I know it's a tall order for HK, but does anyone have recommendations on 20K-ish 3-bedroom apartments in Pok Fu Lam or fairly close to it, preferably in a quieter, family-friendly building/area? I know noise/neighbour issues tend to be inversely proportional to how much you spend, which doesn't leave me in a very good position, but one can always dream I guess. Would really prefer to stay on the island if at all possible.
