A 1906 Black & White house, Inverturret features interesting Rondell crown glass windows, century old Carrara marble floors & secret 45-degrees service passages fronted by 'Pintu Pagar' saloon doors that leads to a new lift lobby. The original rooms of this residence are converted a Botanical Art Gallery that showcases the original hand drawings collection of the Singapore Botanical Gardens. The 2nd-storey verandah offers a panoramic view of the entire estate as the vantage point of the area.
