Neil Road Tourquoise Shophouse. At 147 Neil Road,  this house that was owned by Singapore’s first Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew’s grandfather, Lee Hoon Leong, who bought it in 1920. The former Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew had lived in the house with his grandfather and parents for a few years. Several conservation gems can be found along Neil Road, including what would have been the houses of the very wealthy. The area is certainly one that is worth exploring, not just for the notable clan associations and clubs – one is the Ee Hoe Hean Club, a millionaires’ club dating back to 1895 that is associated with many luminaries including the illustrious Tan Kah Kee, set amongst the many rows of beautifully conserved shophouses.
