Located in a sensational area on the northern slopes of Yogyakarta, the villa is 10 minutes from the Hotel Hyatt, Marlioboro Street and a myriad of restaurants. Set on over 6,000 meters of pristine village land, it offers a rare fusion of a private luxury 2-bedroom villa and 2-bedroom pavilion amid sensuous architecture, stunning natural environment, a private pool and oversize deck overlooking the river.
About the villa
In a contemporary interpretation of the old timber houses of Java, teakwood is much in evidence throughout the villa, showcasing supreme craftsmanship and creating a depth of character that belies its newness (the villa was completed mid-2012). The living space is defined by the extensive use of teak pillars and panels recycled from an old post independence hotel. The teak windows and doors are another interesting feature, influenced by colonial Dutch architecture.
Such expansive use of teak is complemented by other natural materials including Yogya white stone, Yogyakarta lavastone, hand made cement tiles and reclaimed Cararra marble. And sitting comfortably among these traditional materials are the trappings of convenient 21st Century living: flat-screen TVs and home entertainment systems, WiFi throughout, and a superbly equipped kitchen.
Our beautiful vacation home is reached from the parking area by a narrow waterside walkway and set behind traditional randomset lavastone walls, it comprises a 20 metre long double-storey pavilion facing an expansive garden with views to the river, the water garden, swimming pool and twin volcanic peaks of Mt Merapi and Mt Merbabu. The living areas; indoor and out, and the first bedroom occupy the entire ground level of the dwelling. From here, an open staircase leads down to the second bedroom. Two Gazebos in the north garden are connected by lavastone walkways. There are two adjoining rooms with spacious terraces and in the dressing terracotta material is located on the corner of the garden overlooking the garden and pool.
Even more spacious is the open plan living room defined by soaring teakwood ceilings, furnished with comfy sofas, a timber bar and easy chairs. The 6-seater teak dining table is set on the huge covered deck perched amid the trees that stem from the side of the flowing river below. The Private Villa is ideal for a group of 8, a small family or two couples who wish to escape the hustle and bustle and stresses of city life and reconnect with nature in this sublime tropical Paradise.
