    Default No.9 Changkat Rajan Chulan, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, January 2017


    1. The History
    Again like my previous report can’t find anything about this abandoned houses whatsoever which is strange for this fine colonial house.

    2. The Explore
    Managed to spot this place on one of my Google Maps searches. Again just a stone’s throw from where I was staying. This place looked like a fantastic old pad. However there was a high fence all around it. There was a place where you could squeeze through and pull yourself up but unfortunately was on the busy main Changkat Raja Chulan. Across the road were some security guards looking after a tower block entrance so in the end gave up. Shame as the place looked ace. Enough externals for a report and I’ve tacked on another empty place I found just up the hill from here.

    3. The Pictures:

    Posh gate-posts hint at a fine house:

    And that is the case. That is some entrance:

    It’s a fair sized place:

    And it’s got some posh drain-pipes:

    One of the out-buildings:

    Looks like the tree has taken out part of the back wall:

    The over-grown roof terrace:

    One last gaze:

    Up the hill is this interesting place. Another no-go as there was alive-in lodge guard.

    Looks a bit like 1930s architecture:

    The first house looks like a colonial house, possibly a member of civil service stayed there. The second house has hints of British Army married personnel housing. When my dad was stationed in Singapore we stayed at a house with similar looking balconies. Nice photos.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    Cheers guys. This would be some restoration project. Guessing the land will be worth more cleared and high-rise built on it.
