Walk past the plunge pool on your left and into a living room with floor to ceiling glass and teak wood walls overlooking cranes posing on the water and peacocks running round on the banks. The young architect Sanat Liyanage is responsible for this beautifully designed space with Observation Deck in the middle of 100 acres.
This house has 6 luxurious double bedrooms with large en suite bathrooms, with outside baths and showers and inside showers too. Airconditioning, large plasma screens, music systems, in room minibars, safes, all has been thought of for your comfort and entertainment but our bet is you will spend most of the time on the Observation Deck enjoying the peace, spotting hornbills and taking in the views of the old Rumbac tree in the water.
Mangoes, pomegranate, passionfruit, papaya, rice from their paddy fields, vegetables from their garden – all home grown. Note they do not have a liquor license so we can arrange for wine, beer and spirits to be delivered for you.
