The Boya Villa is also known as Wai Bun Castle (Wai Bun Castle). It is located on the bank of the Shing Mun River in Dawei, Sha Tin District, Hong Kong.


The predecessor of Boya Villa was Meiyuan Villa and Hexinglong Shark's Fin Factory, originally occupying 41,909 square feet. In 1971, Chief Inspector Lu Le purchased it under the name of Wai Bun Land Investment Company Limited (Wai Bun Land Investment Company Limited) as his holiday villa. There were rumors that the villa was actually an underground casino.

At that time, the entire Boya Villa was surrounded by a ten-foot-high hemp stone city wall, so neighboring villagers set up a name called the Great Wall of China. There are large gates at the entrance and at the end of the Boya Villa: the main gate and the back gate, with a horizontal plaque engraved on the top of the Boya Villa, and the four small characters "Guichou Chunli", indicating that it was completed in the spring of 1973. In addition, there are also car passages with horizontal plaques inscribed "Weibin City". Entering the main gate, there is another archway with the book "Late Qing Dynasty" and a couplet with the surname Lv: "Putian Shize, the sound of the Weishui family." After that, the hall, workers' rooms, kitchen and storage rooms are inlaid with marble. On the promenade, up to the second floor, there are 9 rooms, 2 of which are attached to the bathroom. Outside the main building, there is a pond and a giant rockery. A white marble statue of Guanyin with a lotus seat is enshrined in the rockery. To the west of the pond is the "Longjin Pavilion" Chinese pavilion; in the east is the "Bo Yuan" pavilion.

Weibin Real Estate Co., Ltd. borrowed HK$6 million from the Hong Kong International Restaurant Group with Boya Villa as collateral. In 1973, Lu Le moved to Taiwan through Canada. The restaurant used to operate a garden-style Chinese restaurant-International City in Boya Mountain Villa from 1977 to 1987. However, part of the property was taken back by the government in February 1987 when the Chengmen Tunnel Road was constructed. At that time, most of Boya Mountain Villa’s The buildings were demolished, so that the Boya Villa was divided into two. The remaining private gardens (ponds, Longjin Pavilion) that have not been demolished were later acquired by Sun Hung Kai Properties (originally planned to be developed into the subsequent phases of Xiaocui Villa). The land premium was completed in 2004 and cleared in 2005-06. Demolished and rebuilt into the first and third phases of One Genting.

At present, Boya Villa only remains part of its tower. The Shatin District Office completed the construction of a platform and installed 3 benches in August 2004 (and when the construction of No.1 Genting, SHKP was also responsible for the slope and restoration works in the park). Since Boya Villa is located at the bottom of the road bridge of the Shingmen Tunnel, there is no need to build an upper cover.
