Black and White Bungalows are a perennial favourite of many Caucasian expats. They are the "colonial houses" built by the British military between the late 19th century and 2nd world War. They have "black and white" exteriors and large grounds. Some gardens can be as large as 100,000 sq. ft and many are around 50,000 sq ft. 

The colonial bungalows are owned or managed by two corporations. One corporation, Singapore Land Authority (SLA) manages the bulk of the black and whites, estimated to be around 500. SLA tenders out the bungalows for rent to the highest bidder. Prospective tenants can submit a bid on the State Property Information Online website,

No housing agent is permitted to be involved. The highest bidder gets the property.  In 2012, each tenant can rent up to 9 years, paying the bid price for the first 2 years and then rental according to market rates.

Asia USA Realty can broker such rentals for prospective tenants. However, the prospective Tenant must be able to decide and close the deal if one is available owing to the high demand and short supply as these units are limited in numbers.
