Luxury Teak Beach Garden Villa on Railay Beach
This beautiful hardwood villa is set in one of the most desirable locations in all of Thailand, and is one of only a handful that very occasionally become available in this small villa community.
The villas are set around an area of privately and jointly owned land mostly laid to lawn and managed jungle forest and gardens, and each of the villas have their own private and secluded gardens covering an area of at least 1,600 sq.m. and are surrounded on 2 sides by huge limestone cliffs which drop vertically around the property which are not only stunningly beautiful, but also offer a cooler aspect in the heat of the day.
The community is set right on the famous Railay Beach, and all of the villas are only a short walk to the beachfront restaurant and reception area, and all have great access to the private beach which is for the use of owners and guests.
The house itself was built in 2000 by the Phuket firm Unique Building Concepts, and is owned by a foreigner who also owns one of the other villas in the community.
The decks and windows are all made from teak, and the floors and walls are mai tang (a species of mahogany), with the main support beams for the first floor being of steel.
The house was actually built to California code standards by the current owner, and is designed to be low maintenance and with a long life span.
There are three bedrooms, including the master suite, as well as 2.5 bathrooms plus an outdoor shower. Two large storage rooms are provided within the villa, and there is also a large lockable closet.
The area is 1 rai, 07 wa, or 1628 meters.
The lease, which is a 30 year and can be renewed and can be sold to anyone for any price, and was first initiated in 2000. The lease is held, owned and managed by the homeowners of the Beach Club. This lease comes with 322 shares of that company, making the owner of the lease a voter each year in the rules and reulations.
Other info: This house is close to the jungle and cliffs, thus the sounds of the local wildlife are ever present, and the critters are in close proximity (just so you know).
