Hong Seng Estate is a 1-storey terrace housing area located in between the Botanical Gardens and Gurney Drive. This estate is positioned behind the Grand View and the Mutiara Villa.
Hong Seng Estate is made up of single storey terrace houses lived-in by fishermen as well as laborers who seek employment along the beach. Typically, each unit comes with two equally-sized bedrooms and two bathrooms over a built-up area of 800sf and each house also comes with one car parking slot.
Despite its desolate location, there are plenty of amenities within 5 minutes driving distance including the Penang Chinese girls high school, SMK Tanjung Bungah, the Fettes Park market as well as the Penang Adventist Hospital. 3 Petrol stations are also readily available within 10 minutes drive (Shell, Caltex and Petronas).
The famous Fatty Loh Chicken Rice is also within 10 minutes walking distance amidst plenty of other hawker stalls. Larger shopping centers such as Midlands One Stop, Gurney Plaza as well as Island Plaza are also reachable within 15 minutes drive from the estate. The town area is also about 15 minutes drive away from Hong Seng Estate.
By car, Hong Seng Estate is accessible via Jalan Mount Erskine and also Jalan Tanjung Tokong, although the latter road is infamous for being laden with traffic jam. To date, no Rapid Penang bus travels through Jalan Mount Erskine. The nearest Rapid Penang bus routes would be through Fettes Park, Tanjung Tokong as well as Vale of Tempe.
