This iconic Geoffrey Bawa designed villa sits on one of the best waterfront sites in Sri Lanka. The main structure is located on an elevated part of the site, offering spectacular Indian Ocean views. The well-protected headland features mature coconut palms and leads down to a beautiful and secluded bay. The lower acreage provides extensive frontage (370 meters) on to a beautiful beach, offering outstanding safe swimming for families. There is no other significant development on the beach and the beachfront is totally private.
The colonial-meet-modern architecture and open plan layout allow natural ventilation and a unique interaction with the environment. The large living space highlights views across the garden to the bay and the Indian Ocean.
The recently–renovated villa has five classically-decorated en-suite bedrooms. The accommodation is split between the main house which houses 3 rooms and an adjoining structure consisting of 2 additional rooms. The villa features a beautiful infinity pool, a part of the recent renovation, alongside a pool pavilion which houses a bar and dining table. The pool area also consists of a barbeque and bathroom facilities.
The property is a rare gem given its large land extent, elevation, location, great swimming beach and heritage value. Located in Dikwella in a highly desirable boutique hotel area, the property is in close proximity to Amanwella, Anantara Peace Haven, Marriott Weligama and the Shangri La. While the property is currently owned and managed as a luxury villa, it has the development potential to add more villas or chalets. The site is large and perfectly suited for further development as a boutique hotel consisting of chalets or multiple villas. There are no restrictions on development, other than the standard setbacks from the waterfront.
