5. The Matilda House

Also known as “White Matilda House” and one of three haunted coloured houses in Singapore (the other two being the popular Red House in Changi and the now-demolished green Hillview Mansion), Matilda House is one of the oldest houses in Singapore.

It was built way back in 1902 by Irish lawyer Joseph William Cashin, the first Eurasian millionaire in Singapore. In 1985, the Singapore government acquired the land in Punggol, but the house proved to be impossible to demolish.

Workers reported sightings of a lady with long hair in the surrounding trees, and some have even died while working here.

So, the government gave up. Instead, in 2000, the Urban Redevelopment Authority placed Matilda House on its conservation list and fenced it up. Now, the house has been turned into a clubhouse for residential condominium A Treasure Trove.
