The apogee of modern Phuket oceanfront villa design. Big, bold, linear lines and large glass expanses overlooking the Andaman Sea, set the scene with a design that seems to befit a James Bond Movie set. Among those who have visited, it is even known as, “The James Bond Villa’.
Situated on a cliff top, Villa Mayavee faces westward across the open ocean to glorious sunsets and is securely and privately situated at the end of a magnificent treelined boulevard of mature tropical trees within a spacious private residential estate of only 8 other premium homes and lots. Such is the position, that one can gain 360-degree views from the property, especially the iconic sunset roof terrace, which must rank as one of Phuket’s finest viewpoints.
Set in 3.100 sqm of land, the villa has a gross floor area of 2,400 sqm, with 1,200 sqm. being internal.
The villa has three distinct structural areas aligned in an ‘S’ shape when viewed from above. The central and most obvious part is the massive ‘floating’ main living/dining and show kitchen area, which runs parallel to the oceanfront and overlooks the especially wide 21m x 5m main swimming pool and relaxation and sunbathing areas. This rectangular space sets the modern theme. It is linked to the dramatic owner's suite with its own 15m long private lap pool, spacious dressing area, linked office suite, further formal dining area, huge commercial grade kitchen, staff areas, and internal garage area. The rear villa area is linked to a separate guest block housing three spacious guest bedrooms and a well-equipped gym with a sauna.
The house was custom designed by Martin Palleros of Terra Designs. All materials were carefully chosen to exude quality and textural richness. These extend from the natural exterior stonework to the Japanese pool tiles, to the beautifully laid interior solid wood and French limestone and sandstone floors, the top quality, oversize glazing solutions to the furniture which runs as a who’s who of European chic, with Poliform, Gandia Blasco, Boffi and Dornbracht, Paola Lenti and Minotti well represented.
Multiple covered and open-air terraces and seating areas throughout the villa provide al fresco dining and relaxation areas in addition to the internal air-conditioned formal, informal, and TV lounge areas.
A magnificent villa that was comprehensively redecorated in 2023.
