Until his sudden death in Hong Kong in 1973, at the age of 32, martial-arts icon Bruce Lee lived in Kowloon Tong or “Nine Dragon’s Pond”. The 5,699-square-foot townhouse sits on a quiet neighborhood on the Kowloon peninsula and wouldn’t draw attention to itself as the former residence of one of the most famous men in the world.
The property was purchased by billionaire tycoon Yu Panglin in 1974 for about $1 million Hong Kong dollars. It was reportedly used as a love-hotel (a place where people rent rooms for sex) for many years. The owner planned to sell the house in 2008 to raise money for Sichuan earthquake victims in mainland China. When a campaign by fans urged Yu to preserve the property, he began working with the Chinese government to turn it into a museum that would feature a cinema and exhibits. Unfortunately, the two parties have never been able to come to an agreement on the terms of the donation.
This abandoned Mansion is like no other, the power and water inside is still working and the mansion is in a pristine untouched condition for the most part.
