This modern-classic residence is built on a huge 4,800 square metres hillside land plot, offering 180-degree breathtaking sea views.

An individually-designed palatial property, it is set high in the lush, palm-covered hills of Rawai, in the scenic residential south of Phuket Island. The residence owes its concept to the beautiful, unspoilt views by which it is surrounded, where owners can enjoy its spectacular private location while taking in the views over Chalong Bay, and all the way out to Phi Phi Island.

The timeless contemporary design was crafted by a team of New Zealand and Thai architects, and built by a German-Thai construction company, using only highest quality natural materials. The finishing of the residence – with its wooden-tiled ceilings, granite and lava stone floors, and large doors – embeds it naturally into its tropical mountainside location. The mix of large glass fronts and natural materials results in a remarkably grand and instantly comfortable property. Furniture, fittings and artworks were sourced or custom made for the residence, and are of the highest standards.

Access to the property is through private electric gates, followed by a curved driveway leading to a covered parking area adjacent to the hand-carved wooden double entrance doors. From there, guests are welcomed into a dedicated reception area, and guided further into the residence.

Internally, all living accommodations are spacious and comfortable, with a distinctive emphasis on being oversized and impressive. The residence is arrayed with six generous en-suite bedrooms across two levels, and covers a total indoor space of 1,400 square metres, as well as approximately 800 square metres of terraces and balconies.

All six bedrooms offer an utmost degree of privacy and comfort, with unobstructed views from each location. Generous full-length windows allow for ample natural light, while conveying a feeling of being on top of the world. The lower level holds the eight metre high glass-fronted living room with panoramic views, direct access to the 16-metre infinity pool

(with an even depth of 1.40 metres), and a spacious pool terrace with a covered outdoor living sala to one side.

From there, residents and guests enjoy the warm, tropical breeze, while sitting on the daybeds, relaxing on a sun-lounger, or taking a dip in the pool. An adjacent oversized entertainment and barbecue area features bench-style seating and a long stone table. It accommodates up to 30 guests, sitting comfortably in the shade while enjoying lavish Thai meals, barbecue dinners, and Southern views. In the past, the owners have hosted casual events there for up to 100 guests.

The residence has three kitchens, the main one being an open-concept western gourmet kitchen embedded in the overall living, dining, and entertainment area. Meals are then then taken in one of three distinct dining areas of various size and functionality. To the rear of the residence is a service area with direct access to the garage, a well equipped laundry

room, the Thai kitchen, and maid’s quarters with en-suite bathroom and rear garden views. The upper floor features a 150 square metre self-contained one-bedroom apartment with oversized bathroom and balcony, and a separate breakfast kitchen. Two more en-suite large bedrooms with wide balconies complete the tour – with one of them currently being used as an office and private meeting area.

Other facilities include high-speed internet via a dedicated fibre-glass line, two telephone land lines, an on-site fresh water well feeding into a drinking-water quality filtration system supplying the entire property. There are parking garages for three cars (plus space for ten more cars in the driveway), a guard house, a driver bathroom, and extensively landscaped gardens with mature palm trees and other tropical plants and flowers.

This is an exceptional residence that combines modern luxury and design with the complete privacy and exclusivity that comes from its quiet mountain-top location. It is offered fully furnished, with exception of the owner’s private artworks, carpets and personal belongings. The property has a clean freehold land title (“Chanote”), and it’s ownership and holding company structure is transparent and well organised, allowing for a smooth and easy transfer of ownership and occupancy to both Thai and non-Thai nationals.

The predominantly residential Rawai area itself offers a large number of popular beachside bars and excellent restaurants, catering to all tastes. Nearby are a number of supermarkets, including Villa Market, Makro, and Tesco Lotus, and various local fruit and fresh food markets. The top international schools in Phuket – British International School and Headstart – are a 20 minute drive away.

The popular Rawai Beach with its famous seafood market is a five minute’s drive away, where too one can find a wide choice of dining and nightlife options. And just a few minutes further out is Nai Harn Beach, one of Phuket’s top swimming and sunbathing beaches, famous for its spectacular sunsets and sheltered waters.
