A warm, rich. family home on the south-western tip of Sri Lanka.
With views over jungle, tea plantation, and the Indian Ocean this beautifully finished property offers an exceptional island escape.
Perfectly seated near Galle on the southern coast it boasts a mixed plantation of tea, cinnamon and pepper.
Completed in 2010, the house nods to classical Sri Lankan architecture whilst balancing luxurious modern comfort with a popular ‘barefoot’ aesthetic. A hilltop location – at an altitude of 800 feet – provides stunning views and cooling breezes.
A Tropical Home
With six bedrooms and large, open plan living areas, the house is spacious but warm and inviting. A design focused on hosting family and friends lends to very comfortable social space but with private corners, terraces and sun decks easily found for quiet retreat.
Extensive Living Areas
High, vaulted ceilings cover a large open plan living area, adjoining a separate dining area. A large santol tree overlooks the space and climbs through the roof to the sky.
A beautiful family kitchen provides the focal point of the home. Ample storage fashioned in polished cement covers one wall with a large island the centrepiece.
Spacious & Comfortable Bedrooms
A spacious master suite and 4 large double bedrooms sit within the main house – all but one on the ground floor of the
property. All have large ensuite bathrooms, dramatically designed, featuring natural rocks from which the property was carved. A large sixth bedroom, slightly apart from the main house, offers ideal guest accommodation.
Pool & Garden
A garden of approximately 1 acre surrounds the house, running to the the jungle and mixed plantation that drops to paddy fields below. A beautiful L-shaped infinity pool wraps the western corner of the house, perfectly positioned to watch the setting sun.
Enviably located in the island’s southwestern corner, Pokkuluwa is 10 kilometres from Galle and its historic Fort.
This southern stretch of coastline boasts some of the island’s most beautiful beaches. While retaining its charm, a vibrant tourist and ex-patriate community has prompted development of several high-end bars, restaurants and boutique hotels in the region. The Southern Expressway has reduced driving time between Galle and Colombo to 1 and a quarter hours.
