Building was on FL24. Completed 1860. In June 1873 JJ dos Remedios sold part of the lot to the Missions Etrangeres de Paris to build Bethanie. Lot described as a large piece of land in Pok Fu Lam spanning the whole hillside from the Pok Fu Lam Road down to seashore.

Mr. Remedios has built at Pokfoohun a very fine summer retreat. There is a fine carriage road, and the piece of ground attached is being laid out in gardens
