Four bedroom villa on Koggala Lake

$1,100,000

place Koggala

size 200 perch (1.25 acres)

We are delighted to present this recently built boutique villa on the banks of tranquil Koggala Lake on the south coast of Sri Lanka.  The house is situated in a quiet and peaceful rural area surrounded by rice paddy, cinnamon plantations and coconut trees but it is only a ten minute drive to the white sands of Kabalana Beach.   The Galle Fort heritage site is 15 kilometres west and the huge sandy bay and colourful fishing boats of Weligama are 15 kilometres east.

The villa has a central living area and four bedrooms, all constructed as connected but separate buildings. It is built with the local Dutch colonial style in mind – rows of columns, high ceilings, cooling fans and terracotta floors.

The bedrooms each have a modern ensuite bathroom, ample storage space, and are fully air-conditioned with  fans over the bed. Two rooms also have an old fashioned bathtub.  One bedroom has an outdoor shower and its own private walled garden for added privacy.  Each bedroom has a shady, spacious indoor/outdoor verandah with casual seating to enjoy the morning birdsong, read a book, meditate or relax and watch the evening sunset.

The main house consists of a large living room with high exposed timber ceilings and terrazzo floors, and a modern, well-appointed kitchen, bathroom, laundry and office.

The swimming pool has an infinity edge overlooking the lake and there is a shallow “wallowing” pool for those who want to escape the heat of the day – or night.
