yesterday, I was browsing your photos and I noticed there was a pic of Buxey Lodge, unfortunately it wasn't tagged as such, it was in your "then and now" section. I have looked and looked but I cannot find it.
I believe it is the first Buxey Lodge in Caine Road.
I'm attaching photos of the name marker of Buxey Lodge in Conduit Road. Would be nice if I could find the first Buxey Lodge again!ERROR: Image_assist macro refers to invalid node: 4915. ERROR: Image_assist macro refers to invalid node: 4916.

“Newlands” Sold. Fine residential property obtained cheap.
The valuable leasehold property known and registered in the Land Office as Inland Lots nos. 1544 and 1712 with the premises thereon now known as “Newlands”, Conduit Road, was sold in one lot at Messrs. Hughes and Hough’s auction rooms at noon today. The property, which was erected about two years ago on a commanding site, consisted of all those pieces or parcels of ground situated at Victoria in the Colony of Hongkong and registered in the Land Office as Inland Lots nos. 1544 and 1712. The property is held under and subject to the agreements and conditions of sale under which the same were purchased from the Crown at public auction. The purchaser will be entitled to apply for and obtain Crown leases of the lots for terms of 75 years each, subject to the payments of the Crown rents payable and to the performance of the conditions and agreements performable in respect thereof.
Approximate area of Inland Lot 1544:- 49,246 square feet. Approximate annual crown rent $359.42. Approximate area of Inland Lot 1712:- 13,872 square feet. Approximate annual Crown rent $95.
There were a number of people present interested in landed property. Bidding was not very keen. The property was put up for $40,000. Mr. H.N. Mody was the first to raise the price by $1,000 by which amount the bidding rose to $45,000 was reached, when the property was knocked down to the original bidder (Mr. H.N. Mody) for the very low sum of $45,000. At this figure the cost per square foot of leveled land, with a fine mansion on it, and the very costly retaining wall, together with the well laid out “approach” to the house, works out at 71.29 cents.
A significant purchase by Mr. Mody – “Newlands” was the site of Mody’s new “Buxey Lodge”.
