Haunted house on (3?) Cornwall St

Wondering about an abandoned house on Cornwall Street. I haven't been able to dig up anything about this house, why it's abandoned in such an affluent area - could someone who is more knowledgeable fill me in? Thanks.

The Majestic Furniture Company

Hello All,

My father was stationed in Okinawa for the Korean War. He often traveled to Hong Kong. As a benefit of his travels there, we have a number of pieces of rosewood furniture from the Majestic Furniture Company. It's showroom was located in the Miramar Arcade at one time. The factory was on Kimberly Road.
