Mahawella, The Last House  Price rating for Mahawella, The Last HousePrice rating for Mahawella, The Last HousePrice rating for Mahawella, The Last HousePrice rating for Mahawella, The Last House South Coast



Geoffrey Bawa’s final architectural gem set on a private enclave of Tangalle’s best beach. Aptly named, Mahawella-The Last House- is a large villa divided into a number of wings to offer privacy to friends and generations of family.

The distressed-style blue window frames intersperse the Bawa signature-pillared verandahs. Cement floors and open cream-washed arches join rooms scattered with large glass or teak tables and temple wall hangings.  Ornate, antique brass light fittings hang from the high ceilings and the cool air flows around the many Buddhist statues.

The vast 2-acre gardens are contained neatly between the villa and the boundary wall with only a few coconut trees and items of garden furniture to mar the view to the ocean. The 10-metre pool is protected in the central courtyard, before the gate out to the blue ocean and your very own wide sandy beach. To the front, the bedrooms overlook a natural lake where resident herons and kingfishers target the fish circling the sea of purple lilies.



  •  Lazing around the terrace and gardens doing nothing whilst the children build sandcastles on the safe beaches.
  • Tangalle beaches and climate are the best in the island - untouched by commercialism.
  •  Tangalle is very under developed with few tourist restaurants or shops.
