See former top model Ethel Fong's stunning Singapore conservation home

Ethel Fong's eye for beauty goes way beyond the designer fashion she paraded on the catwalk in the 1980s. Since the former Singaporean top model got married to French writer and private investor Jean Chalopin in 1998, she's developed an appreciation for beautiful homes with history and character. Her first matrimonial home was the 200-room French castle Chateau de Farcheville, which the couple restored into a 15-suite home. They lived and raised their two children there before selling it some 10 years ago.
