A flight of stone steps lead up from the car park to the lower terrace of the villa where a giant bust of the Buddha protectively watches over whoever passes in and out. A fan-cooled family bedroom is located just off this terrace, featuring two double beds on very low timber platforms, a comfy sofa and an elongated ensuite bathroom with shower.

As you ascend the next flight of steps, you come to the main terrace which overlooks the mountain opposite and runs the length of the house. To the left of the entrance is a large lounge area with twin sofas, a swing seat, satellite TV and DVD player, a stereo system and a cabinet with a broad selection of books from historical Sri Lankan non-fiction to novels by authors ranging from JK Rowling to Charles Dickens. This room has a high timber ceiling with fans, and multiple sets of folding glass doors that open on two sides to the glorious views. Also opening onto the front terrace are two similarly designed guest bedrooms with four-poster double beds, ceiling fans, wardrobes and ensuite bathrooms with shower.

Between these two bedrooms and opening onto the front terrace and rear veranda, are the dining room (with table for eight) and pantry kitchen for guest use, featuring a gas oven, microwave, sink and large fridge freezer (there is a separate staff kitchen to the rear of the property). A square archway connects these rooms which are airy and light on account of the many tall folding doors that pleasantly open to the outdoors.

Close to the lounge and up a small flight of steps is the master bedroom, which has its own terrace overlooking the garden. It is the most private bedroom of the four and has the quickest access across the lawn to the swimming pool. Here there’s a double bed, a ceiling fan and an ensuite bathroom with shower.
