A home may not be a home to others
Camelot the first castle to be built in Malaysia by Maj-Gen Datuk Leong Siew Meng and Datin May Lee-Leong had been in the market for sale for several years now. Till date there is no takers.
At RM6mil, with a land area of nearly 16,000 sq. ft. and a built-up of 18,000 sq. ft. it is below market price.
I have visited Datin May's castle several times after her husband's death but have never felt peace in her home. The rooms are narrow and had that damp feeling. Maybe because I like a well ventilated house to live in. The castle home is good for visits but not to stay in.
Everyone has their dream home, whether it pleases the visitors does not matter because at the end of the day you are the one living in it.
Maybe Joanne can turn the castle into a hotel. After all that castle was built from the late Maj-Gen Datuk Leong's dream.
