Stunningly located on the Mudra Estate, an exclusive headland with exquisite tropical gardens, this villa provides seclusion and indulgence within a magnificent setting, which includes 180 metres of private beach frontage and spectacular coastal and ocean views.
A labour of love and creative expression, the villa was conceived and built by Los Angeles based multi-media artist who is an accomplished photographer, cinematographer and musician. He actually camped out on the site for several months before designing the various buildings that make up the villa. Following his wilderness experience he set off on a journey of discovery across Asia, sourcing original materials and adornments in places as diverse as China, Burma, India, Bali and Southern Thailand. The result is a rich blend of influences that combines natural elegance with comfort and striking antiquity.
The floors of the buildings have been strategically built around the granite boulder laden grounds, and even the roof shingles are recycled 100 year old teak from the north of Thailand.
The Octagon Bedrooms are a luxurious mixture of antique, oriental t reasures and modern convenience. The vaulted ceiling, with its heavy Takian beams, gives a feeling of times gone by. The room is lit with unique lamps that have been crafted from Chinese lanterns that hang from the beams. The room is cooled by both ceiling fans and air-conditioning.
The adjacent second bedroom, that is ideal for children, is separated from the main bedroom by a large dressing room that has beautify antique Chinese wardrobes, and a well appointed shower room.
Beyond this Octagon Bedrooms a large stone urn sits next to ancient carved Chinese doors which lies the incredible Octagon Temple, an open -sided living area that offers spectacular ocean views and the natural breeze off the sea. The design of the raised kitchen cleverly disguises the modern conveniences it contains, in the same way the lounge area disguises a high definition projector and large projection screen.
The center piece of the room, that is perched on top of a giant rock is a coffee table made from rare, green Kanchanaburi river stone, more of which can be found throughout this spectacular villa. On the balcony of the Octagon Temple is a hand-made dining table that comfortably seatsup to eight guests, overlooking uninterrupted breathtaking views.
The Garden suite has been cleverly designed around the rock formations that are a feature of the main room that has comfortable living and sleeping areas. A ventilation chute rises out of the rear of the suite creating a natural airflow and sliding pocket doors open the room up for outdoor style living. The room features another high definition projector with large screen should you ever wish to take your eyes off the spectacular view.
Stone steps lead up to the next level where there is a dining sala that covers an enormous seven meter long table made of reclaimed Takian that was discovered in a boat yard in the South of Thailand and this can comfortably seat 24 persons. The lush t ropical gardens and the size of the dining table make this the idea spot for weddings, celebrations and large gatherings. This level is also home to the incredible infinity pool with its Balinese stone t iles that have been handpicked to exactly match the color of the sea below.
To the rear of this level the incredible 100 year old temple which was imported from Bali can be found. This room has Takian boat wood floors, beautiful carved teakwood paneling and vaulted ceiling with ceiling fans and another cleverly disguised high definition projector and large pull down screen. The columns outside the temple are from India and the beautiful lamps are from Morocco.
