Living and Dining

Lounging and dining spots abound. On the ground floor is an expansive open plan living room with cool terrazzo floors and multiple sets of folding doors onto a sun-drenched pool terrace. Views of the garden and sea unfold generously whilst high louvered windows and ceiling fans keep the interiors breezy and cool. Vibrant modern artwork from Sri Lanka and across Asia adorns the walls.

The living room is elegantly furnished with four cushion-topped day beds in lime and pink, a relaxing recessed lounge in bright orange and a dining table for ten ringed by all-weather rattan chairs topped with technicolour cushions. To one corner of the living room is a timber cabinet, which conceals a flat screen TV with cable channels plus surround sound speakers and a DVD player.

Of particular interest in this room is the three-legged dining table, a former leaf rolling machine dating back over 100 years that would once have enjoyed pride of place in an upcountry tea factory. You can dine from the glass top whilst looking down on the antique wooden ‘blades’ below. Other notable antiques in the room include a brass-embossed Jaffna cabinet and an oversized Dutch chest.

Stairs lead up from the living room, beneath a wall embossed with coloured glass bricks and an oversized batik by famed local artist Ena de Silva, to a breezy landing lounge area. Furnished with a pair of built-in sofas, it leads onto an open-air terrace that makes a super setting for private alfresco meals

Pool and Garden

Soaking up the sun just footsteps beyond the ground floor of the house is the swimming pool. Pieces of glass artily moulded into the blue cement inject a sense of fun whilst a bronze sculpture of a panther looks on. The shallow entry section suits little paddlers whilst long ledges to either side are designed for lounging.

Terracing and soft grass encircles the pool, beside which are sunbeds and a circular cement dining table for relaxed alfresco dining. There’s also a built-in brick BBQ, and a granite C-shaped lounge under a bougainvillea-draped pergola roof. Topped with all-weather cushions, this is a magical place to be at sunset.
