Less than 10 years old, this furnished house is a unique design built to approved architectural plans and constructed extremely strongly in every detail. All work has been carried out by individually chosen, local professional contractors under strict supervision of the original European owner. There is a choice of 4 bedrooms within the 3 main living areas of lower level, main floor and spacious attic. Built on a hill slope, the main terrace is about 6 metres above ground while the back of the house is level with the upper garden. An added bonus is that now an extra 3-metre strip of land has been acquired to widen the perimeter and to create a clear driveway from the lower front entrance of the property right up to the level rear terrace and back door of the house if desired, or otherwise incorporated to extend the overall garden area. Additionally, a recent re-survey has now also marked out the land plot as considerably bigger than the original (under-measured) size of the property and has all been approved and recorded by the Land Office. The house faces northwest and is therefore well protected from southwest monsoon weather during the wet season while being open to the fair northeast winds during the dry season ensuring comfortable living all year round. The special style and construction of the house with double walls and wide internal spaces makes it well ventilated, cool and naturally aired by fresh breezes. The lower level has been developed as a fully separate apartment for guests, tenants or family members complete with independent bedroom, bathroom and living/dining room and kitchen. Adjacent to this is the laundry facility, large storage room plus utility room that can be used as an ideal workshop. Inside, there is also easy access to all main plumbing for the house for inspection and servicing. From this area, a staircase leads up into another bedroom providing suitable private accommodation for a live-in maid, caretaker, tenant or other family member. There is also enough space to build in another small bathroom and kitchen if needed to create a second totally independent apartment. The central level of the house is built on a massive 10 x 15 metre solid thick slab of steel-reinforced concrete. This area includes the main living room, master bedroom, bathroom and double kitchen connected to the open air dining terrace with beautiful views of the surrounding hills, distant seas, coastlines and islands of Thailand. Without low ceilings, the living room and kitchen areas are open to the distinctive roof framing construction built with excellent carpentry workmanship from the best quality native hardwood. Solidly built also from this golden “kayu chengal” is an impressive large staircase leading up into the airy and spacious attic complete with bathroom, balcony and sleeping bunk. With built-in bookshelves, long working desk and multiple power sockets for electronic devices, the attic makes for a perfect quiet study/home office. From this height, the panoramic views are even more spectacular! Overall property size is .1625 hectares or 1,625 square metres or approximately 17,500 square feet. Built upon the hill, the well-tended gardens have been terraced with attention to proper drainage throughout. Roof guttering all round also ensures efficient rain run-off. Fitted with strong and reliable Three-Phase electric power supply throughout the house, there are individual circuit breakers in every room for added protection.The strongly built double garage or outdoor workshop has the potential to be developed into another enclosed building on the land for whatever purpose. And there is also ample space to build a swimming pool and plant more fruit trees and flowering shrubs etc. Location: 20-minute drive from Kuah town. Local shops, "pasar malam" (weekly night market), and beautiful beaches nearby, only 5-10 minutes away at Tanjung Rhu. Reason for selling: Elderly owner/designer retiring and relocating overseas.
