TAKING THE HIGH GROUND IN HISTORY
The name Cairnhill is from the man who built the first house
in that area, Charles Carnie, in 1848. He was the owner of a
nutmeg plantation on a hill near the Orchard Road area, and
the hill on which he built his house became known as Carnie’s
Hill. In 1884, the house was redeveloped into a bungalow for
the manager of a bank. Soon, the area attracted many wealthy
and notable families who built large mansions and terrace
houses, some of which exists until today
CAIRNHILL: GRACIOUS LIVING THROUGH TIME
The story of Cairnhill begins, strangely enough, with the nutmeg. During the 1840s, the colonial government offered land to ambitious Europeans for the development of plantations. Charles Carnie had his own plantation of 4000 nutmeg trees in the area that became known as Carnie’s Hill, named after his house on the hill. The private carriageway to his house evolved into the Cairnhill of today.
By the 1900s, Cairnhill was becoming a suburb of choice not just for the Europeans but for the rich Asians - Chinese, Jews, Indians and Arabs who made
personal fortunes out of trade and property. Eminent residents included Tan Kah Kee, the rubber tycoon and philanthropist, and Tan Chin Tuan, the prominent banker. Gradually a third group joined the wealthy - the professionals, principally doctors, lawyers, and architects. It was this group of professionals that gave Cairnhill its cosmopolitan flavor. Up to this day, Cairnhill still retains its hallmark as one of Singapore’s most prestigious address
