The property is situated on 5 rai of land. 3 rai is a formal garden and a further 2 rai has been left natural. There is plenty of scopes to build more property if required. A private 17-meter swimming pool is installed and was built by Desjoyeaux. It has been maintained by them ever since. The pool area has a covered pool bar and toilet.
Was designed by an architect and work started 14 years ago. It took 2 years to build and the 40 workers who built it were supervised at all times by the architects. The house reflects an old Thai style with high pitched roofs which keeps the house cool. It has created a property of architectural significance.
At all times the highest standards of construction and materials were used. All doors, windows, and skirtings are hardwood and the ceilings are vaulted with hardwood relief. The roof structure is treated with steel. All internal floors are tiled and the extensive external patios are laid in terra-cotta with walkways laid in a sand wash.
This substantial property is 1100 square meters covered.
The main building has two large bedrooms Master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and dressing room, a sitting room, dining room, toilet, and an office. Bedroom two in the main house is very large at 25 x 8 meters given there are no retaining wall issues this could easily be converted into 2 bedrooms using only stud walls. Both would still be of substantial size.
The large kitchen is fitted with black granite countertops with attached utility and storage. The dining room has extensive mountain and farmland views.
The large lounge room is fitted with a high-speed fiber-optic connection for internet and TV use and is attached to extensive outside patio space.
The main building is connected by a substantial hallway with spectacular views over the countryside. Off this hallway is an open-plan office.
The outside space has large covered terra-cotta patios making it an excellent outside dining area.
There is a very large basement under the main house and is currently used for storage. It could easily be converted into further bedrooms, office space, gym or other uses.
The guest wing of the property is, in fact, another large house connected by a short, covered walkway. It has two bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and dressing rooms and an extra room for either tv use, office or could be converted into a kitchen/diner. One of the bedrooms has an outside patio area with impressive views over the gardens and National Park.
The guest wing could be an excellent area for teenagers, relatives or guests as it is separate from the main house and allows complete privacy.
The basement underneath this guest wing has a three-tank water containment system and pumps supplying the whole property.
Also separate from the main house is a staff quarter consisting of a double bedroom, sitting room kitchen and bathroom. Outside of that is a patio area, storage rooms, and a large covered garage. With the land available another staff quarter could be built and the current one retained as a separate flat.
