Ivory House, tucked into the vibrant paddy fields of Galle, combines cutting edge design with Dutch colonial style to create a villa that is both chic and comfortable.
The first room of the house is the sitting room that has a large sofa and armchairs flanked by über trendy photo lamps.
The large retractable shutters can be fully opened to reveal the wide screen panorama of the iridescent green rice paddy.
The large satellite television is just to the right, along with a surround sound music system.
Leading from the sitting room are the 2 smaller – though by no means small – bedrooms.
Both have queen sized beds, ensuite bathrooms, outdoors showers and air conditioning. Small antiques, such as fans and typewriters add a certain romance.
The dining table sits on the paddy side of the house, allowing for some temperate dining whilst the atmosphere is enhanced by bare light bulbs hanging from the high ceiling.
On the other side is the kitchen, equipped with everything you need, as well as good storage. Slightly set back in an alcove are 2 doors leading to each of the 2 master suites.
The rooms are gargantuan, furnished with beautiful 4 poster king beds and antique furniture.
Both rooms are ensuite with air conditioning and one has a double outdoor shower whilst the other has a tub.
