Ma Liqian, the wife of Sea Ltd co-founder Forrest Li, is reportedly buying a Good Class Bungalow (GCB) near the Singapore Botanic Gardens, The Business Times (BT) has reported.

Costing S$42.5 million, the GCB is next to the old bungalow her husband acquired in December 2018.

The two properties sit on freehold land.

She is reportedly acquiring the property, which has a long driveway, from the children of late kidney doctor Gordon Ku.

Dr Ku, who died in February 2023, founded the Kidney Dialysis Foundation.

Mr Li paid S$26 million for his GCB in 2018, which has a land area of 15,100 square feet and stands adjacent to the property that his wife is purchasing.

The tech billionaire has since redeveloped it into a detached two-storey house, featuring a basement, an attic, and a swimming pool.

Both bungalows are situated within the Gallop Road and Woollerton Park GCB Area.
