p.s. I was trying to load a map, so to say precisely where, but it just won't load... grrr
I do believe you are talking about Bukit Chermin - next to Keppel Golf Club. There are a quite a few B&Ws tucked away in there including a magnificent mansion that overlooks Sentosa.

"This is the largest of the four existing black and white bungalows still standing at Bukit Chermin. It is known as House No. 30, although it has been misunderstood as the Cliff (or Cliffe) House, which was actually demolished after a fire in the 1960s (see above).
It was likely to be the residence of the portmaster during the colonial era. The majestic house, located at the east side of Labrador Park, has a splendid seafront view, and is easily visible from Tanjong Berlayer. It remains unoccupied now, although there are plans to convert it into a F&B (Food & Beverage) hub.
The area of Bukit Chermin was given the conservation status in 2008."[/img]
