Property ID : V00099HH
Sold NA - House
This property is quite unique in its design, built on 2 levels, giving an abundance of usable space on both. The living areas on the second level really do benefit from pleasant breezes, keeping you cool throughout the day and night. The views of the surrounding areas are particularly pretty from the spacious terraces, with several different seating areas to choose from. Kitchen, living, dining and main bedrooms are all located on the 2nd floor with utility area and guest bedroom/office on the ground floor. The open areas underneath the property promote a cooling effect through the house structure, Thai homes have been raised from ground level (in older times to around head height) for centuries and this property uses the same ideas. In the past, the areas under the home were most often used for storage, crafts and lounging in the daytime, nowadays its quite similar – we have friends who have a kitchen and dining area under the house and they spend most of the day in this area as its very cool. Thai houses from centuries ago were raised to avoid heavy flooding during certain parts of the year, and in more ancient times, predators…. thankfully these reasons are no longer a problem!
The house built with Thai principles behind it also has a very comfortable feel, it oozes a warm, homely and family feel with lots of high quality woodwork throughout. A lot of teak wood is used through the house, a beautiful material which really does work with this style of house and the surroundings its part of.
If you enjoy gardens this home will be like heaven for you, they are huge and spectacular, with very mature plants, trees and flowers which can be pruned and nurtured to your hearts content. If your a golfer… heaven again, there is a chipping and putting green (the current owner is a golf nut!), ideal for keeping your game sharp before going to the course; Majestic Creek is only a few minutes drive away, a really beautiful course which is lots of fun to play for all levels – the course has just undergone serious improvements and is now elevated to one of the top 5 in the area. After you’ve spent hours gardening and practising your short game you can enjoy your own sauna at the bottom of the garden, followed by a cold drink in the adjoining sala, if you want more than one drink its fine…..there is a toilet very well placed:).
If your looking for a property which is a little different from the mainstream with lots of space, nature all around and lots of usable space this could be the house for you.
