Southaven I is a private condominium located at 43 Hindhede Walk with a 99yrs lease commencing from 1994 according to URA website. Built in 1997.
Southaven II is also a private condominium, located at 31 Hindhede Walk with a 999yrs lease commencing from 1877 according to URA website. Built in 1999.
