Singapore seems to be a hotspot for celebrities and the wealthy looking for their dream homes.

In July 2019, rumours were circulating that Alibaba founder and billionaire Jack Ma might be building a two-storey bungalow at Victoria Park Close.

Meanwhile in the same month this year, James Dyson, founder of the electronics brand of the same name, reportedly dropped S$45 million for a bungalow at 50 Cluny Road in Bukit Timah.

This was right after he purchased a whopping S$100 million Tanjong Pagar Guoco Tower penthouse.

And it seems yet another celebrity has set his sights on the little red dot: None other than Hong Kong actor Donnie Yen.

Eyeing some property in Singapore

Yen and his wife, Cissy Wang, reportedly dropped by Singapore on the last week of September 2019 to shop for property.

According to property site EdgeProp, the Hong Konger and star of the legendary Ip Man film series were said to be “actively looking for value buys”.

Compared to Dyson and Ma, Yen seemed to be scouting for property with prices that are slightly less extravagant of S$5 million and S$10 million.

Yen and Wang had reportedly checked out high-end condominiums, including The Oliv on Balmoral Road, Bishopsgate Residences at the exclusive Bishopgate neighbourhood, Nouvel 18 on Anderson Road, and South Beach Residences on Beach Road.

The 56-year-old actor is known to be a doting husband and father.

In 2013, Yen bought Wang a HK$135 million (S$23.8 million) home in Mount Davis Road, Hong Kong after renewing their wedding vows, reported Yahoo.

Yen, who has acted in numerous action and kungfu movies, starred as the famous Wing Chun master Ip man in the series of the same name.

Yen is set to reprise his role in the fourth and final movie Ip Man 4, which will first release on Dec. 20, 2019.
