The house, Gardens & Pool

For decades, the estate lay forgotten, swallowed by the embrace of encroaching jungle and the relentless passage of time. However, in 2010, it was rediscovered, albeit in a state of near-ruin. Undeterred by the challenges, the new proprietors, originating from the South Pacific, embarked on a labour of love. Collaborating closely with skilled local artisans, they embarked on a meticulous restoration journey, reviving the villa’s opulent grandeur to its former glory.

This restoration effort didn’t merely entail preservation; it was an ode to the villa’s rich history intertwined with the personal touch of its current custodians. Honouring tradition while infusing the space with their distinctive design sensibilities, the owners have curated an eclectic aesthetic that seamlessly blends old-world charm with contemporary elegance.

Nestled amidst the serene embrace of two acres of meticulously landscaped gardens, Villa 111 offers a verdant sanctuary where nature’s splendor unfolds at every turn. As the machetes bravely cleared the dense jungle that once shrouded the property, they unveiled a treasure trove of carefully cultivated wonders. Rows of majestic coconut palms stood proudly alongside orchards teeming with cashew nut, ebony wood, mangosteen, and mango trees, each a testament to the land’s rich bounty.

These cherished discoveries of yesteryear have been lovingly revived, complemented by expansive plantings of tea and coffee, thriving pineapple groves, and cascading pepper and cinnamon vines. Citrus trees and aromatic spice gardens add a burst of fragrance and flavour to the landscape, while a thriving vegetable patch ensures an abundance of fresh produce for culinary delights.

Just a stone’s throw away from the main residence, the villa’s pristine salt-water pool awaits, its impressive length of 23 meters providing an ideal setting to rejuvenate both body and spirit. With vistas stretching across the lush jungle and verdant paddy fields to the azure coastline beyond, it offers a tranquil retreat to unwind and immerse oneself in the rhythm of nature.

An architectural marvel, ‘The Folly’ stands as a captivating focal point at either end of the pool. Designed in a chic art-deco style, this opulent conversation pit invites guests to indulge in leisurely evening libations as the sun gracefully dips below the horizon, casting a warm glow over the idyllic landscape.

“As soon as you arrive at this fabulous property you know you are going to be very happy indeed. It’s an oasis of peace and tranquility, beautifully decorated with great style and renovated with old-school charm and a real sensitivity for the house’s history. The staff, under Denver’s expert management, are on hand to ensure that you’re properly looked after, and chef Lasitha cooked us the most exquisite Sri Lankan and Indian dishes throughout our week long stay. Just lying by the gorgeous pool is the perfect way to relax in this blissful setting. Highly recommended.”
