Gorgeous family beach house


Price - USD 2,200,000

Plot size - 1.25 ACRES

Development status - Completed house and gardens

REF - THA 001

It’s increasingly rare on Sri Lanka’s southern coast to find properties that offer both decent size and direct access to stunning beach; this does both. And located near Tangalle, you’re away from the sometimes-madding crowds that mass further up the coast nearer Galle.

The house itself extends to 8,500 square feet of covered space with grounds that run to one and a quarter acres. The entirety of that space is secluded; the property boasting a wonderful sense of privacy and isolation.

The house was built in 2005 by its current owners in partnership with a Sri Lankan architect. It offers:

  • 6 double bedrooms (on two levels)

  • Large courtyard with swimming pool

  • Large drawing room and dining terrace

  • Private study

  • Ample staff accommodation and storage space


LOCATION - Mawella

The property is equidistant of Dickwella and Tangalle – approximately one hour from Galle. The Southern Expressway, currently reaching as far as Matara, means driving time to Colombo airport is now between 2 and half – 3 hours. That journey time will reduce further when the southern and airport Expressways are joined.

The property offers one of the most stunning and secluded beach settings on the south coast. The more significant nearby properties are predominantly ex-pat owned but local fishermen are the neighbours much more likely to be seen.

Unlike some parts of the coast on this stretch the sea is ideal for swimming year round.

There is, inevitably, some indication of new development but being away from the main coast road the immediate area is protected from any sudden change.


Further PROPERTY notes


The house is one very well loved and lived in and, as such, benefits from having an established, loyal staff team. Such would likely be available to stay on at the property and would be an undeniable asset for new owners.

The property has a good base of paying guests, many of whom return year-on-year. Given the property, its location, and its track-record, there is excellent potential for rental, with significant yield.

Current owners, with limited marketing, more than cover staff and maintenance costs.
