Word about the sale got out on April 27, as reported by Yahoo News, following a search on the Singapore Land Authority site.

Buyer is scion of Luxasia Group

The freehold bungalow is being sold for S$13.25 million to the scion of Luxasia Group, The Straits Times subsequently reported.

The deal works out to S$1,336 per sq ft.

The buyer is reportedly Alwyn Chong, managing director of cosmetics and fragrance distributor Luxasia.

Lee is the former chief executive of Singtel and former chairman of Fraser & Neave.
