The main house has over 800sqm of interior space and is decorated to a very high standard with unique antiques from the region and a number of rare oriental rugs. The house is essentially built of teak which the owner has acquired over many years. Nevertheless it is constructed with modern comforts in mind and all rooms have ample natural light which is often a problem in Northern Thai style properties. The villa stands in beautifully landscaped grounds of over two rai (over 3200sqm) and comprises three main buildings.

The house is essentially built of teak which the owner has acquired over many years. Nevertheless it is constructed with modern comforts in mind and all rooms have ample natural light which is often a problem in Northern Thai style properties. The villa stands in beautifully landscaped grounds of over two rai (over 3200sqm) and comprises three main buildings. The villa itself which has four huge air conditioned bedrooms, two lounges, a large reception and seated hand painted bar area, a dining room which can seat 14 indoors comfortably, a TV/DVD room and a study with computer/fax access. A fifth bedroom with en suite bathroom lies in its own Thai style cottage just yards away right overlooking the pool to the left of the main house and closer to the river. It also has a nice reading terrace. This room is perfect for honeymoon couples or older children wanting to be a little away from the rest. Another cottage lies at the front of the villa which is air-conditioned - both cottages have TV. One other building is a central Thai style two bedroom house which accommodates staff This building also houses the service kitchen and so called Thai style kitchen The property lies in a particularly green part of the outskirts of Chiang Mai close enough to town to be able to go in for dinner and yet far enough to be truly in the countryside. It is also very close to Hang Dong and Baan Tawai which is the handicraft/antiques/furniture center which is well worth visiting for shopping purposes. Some large shopping centers are also only a few kilometers away (Lotus, Robinson or Carrefour). The villa has been tastefully decorated with no expense barred by the owners and is floodlit at night along with the pool. For dining requirements you can choose the main mahogany dining table which comfortably seats 14 or the outdoor table under the veranda by the pool which can seat up to 8. All rooms have views of the river and only the back room does not overlook the pool. There is a large balcony on the first floor which is an extension to the upper lounge and has sweeping views of the river and pool. This can be used for sunbathing or sipping cocktails in the evening. The gardens themselves have been nicely landscaped and comprise a walkway on the banks of the river which lead on the one side to a Thai style Sala which can be used for massages or drinks overlooking the river and at the other end a small pontoon which may be used for fishing or simply contemplating the passing waters! There are also two artificial ornamental waterfalls and a lotus pond which add to the romantic effect and are also floodlit at night. The main Western kitchen in the house is particularly large well equipped with everything from microwaves to espresso coffee machines and every kind of glass or utensil that might be required ....
