Rangala House Floor Plan

Check Availability

Rangala House backs onto the steep road which heads up into the Knuckle Mountains, not a busy route, but one that’s been recently upgraded. From the road you head down stone steps to the front door of the main building which leads to a large entrance hall. Off the hall are the second bedroom, a well equipped modern European style kitchen and a spacious, comfortable lounge with an indoor dining area for six, a piano (Anthony confesses to knowing a few popular pub tunes) and a large stone fireplace. Each of the three rooms have wide French doors which open out onto the 16m terrace running almost the full length of the house, with superb views over the surrounding hills and valleys.

Two bedrooms lead off from the far side of the living room, one has garden views at the back of the house whilst the main bedroom has a large bay window to maximise enjoyment of the views. All the bedrooms in the main building are twin bedded (can be made into doubles), with simple furnishings, fans (no air conditioning needed this high up) and ensuite shower rooms. The main bedroom also has a small bath tub. The terrace itself is furnished with a casual lounge suite, circular dining table for six and some easy chairs for relaxing and enjoying the panoramas. At either end of the terrace, steps lead down to a generous pool bedded into the gardens. At one end is a shaded pretty gazebo – a perfect place to retreat from the midday sun.    

Slightly away from the main villa is the Studio, a new addition completed in late 2011. The Studio, as its name suggests, is adorned with drawings, paintings and photographs by Sri Lankan artists, all of which are available to buy. It is furnished with two double beds (one of which is reached up a ladder and can be split into twins), a lounge area, a satellite TV (with DVD player on request), and its own valley-facing balcony .
