The auction notes:

Aquarellierte Tuschezeichnung auf Papier aus dem Besitz des Malers Gustav Schleicher. Womöglich handelt es sich beim Urheber ebenfalls um eine/n Maler/in des Hölzels-Kreises! Bezeichnet links "Hier wohne ich. hübsch??", rechts "Cheung Chau. 5. Juli 1933 Südchina". 17 x 22 cm. In der Mitte gefaltet. 

And Google's translation:

Watercolor ink drawing on paper owned by the painter Gustav Schleicher. Perhaps the author is also a painter of the Hölzels circle! Inscribed on the left "Here I live, pretty ??", on the right "Cheung Chau, 5th July 1933 South China". 17 x 22 cm. Folded in the middle.

By speculation on the background and the sunlight, the house is likely one of those on the seacape penisula of the Fa Ping area near Nam Tam Wan.
