Istana Woodneuk

Brief history: Built by William Napier in 1854. Sultan Abu Bakar of Johor was given the estate in exchange for his land at Telok Blangah. He had the house re-built in 1892.

This wasn't meant to be a spook hunt, though at times I did have to have my senses at their keenest. It was a quiet, breezy day. You could almost picture what it must've been like some 100 years ago.

It must've been a magnificent place...

Update: A fire broke out some time in July '06. The extent of the damage to the upper floor was extensive and severe, causing much of the roof to collapse. Please have a look at the shots in Part 3 of this series.
