Overview


 

Recommended not yet reveiwed by Boutiquesrilanka consultants

A charmingly restored 200yr old house. The eclectic mix of traditional features and modern furnishings results in a comfortable family retreat.  A small courtyard pool provides a focal point of dappled shade, perfect for ending a day of sightseeing or surfing. Sip your sundowner sitting on the cooling pool bench, or climb to the west facing roof terrace, sink into the deep chairs and marvel at the spectacular sunset and panorama over the Dutch Fort ramparts. In this 90 acre Fort are crowded some 600 odd dwellings,  mostly 18th century in origin.  The ramparts provide an excellent vantage point for an illicit view of the International test cricket.

With 3 double bedrooms and 3 separate living areas there is ample room to find your own space.  The main sitting /dining room is long and high with feature archways, colourful local art and an imposing carved staircase rising from one end.  Vast comfortable sofas in rich colours, cool white walls and floor are gently lit from lamps and recessed fittings. Tables and ornaments reflect the traditional craftsmanship of Sri Lanka, old and new,  whilst the locally made teak dining table shows the high quality of modern skills. Up to12 people may be comfortably seated, should you wish to join with friends / family at nearby Beach Hut.

A study / reading area is incorporated into the entrance hall and for the rare rainy day there is a satellite tv / dvd room with huge bean bags to sprawl on.

Cuisine is to your preference and Arshad the cook will be delighted to suggest menus.  Breakfast is a Sri Lankan affair;  for other meals either shop in the market or instruct Arshad what to buy and when to serve it. 

Each bedroom has its en suite bathroom with shower and there is a further guest bathroom on the ground floor.  As the owners of the property are New Yorkers, you can expect the most efficient plumbing and air conditioning.
