This impressive and absolutely unique property is very private, sat on a lush tropical hillside among granite boulders and boasts sweeping views to the sea and mountains. The villa is a very carefully planned and designed to take maximum advantage of the surroundings and is open to the nature, flanked on both sides by hills and every room in the property has breathtaking views.
The owner, an architect, designer, photographer and artist, designed the house with a lot of attention to detail and all the furniture is custom made. This one of a kind property on Koh Samui offers an authentic living experience, a connection to the natural world and a retreat from city living. It is a return to the basic values in life: good clean air, wide-open space, quiet solitude and this is the reason behind the very basic materials that were used to build the house: concrete, wood, steel and glass. There are no embellishments. The focus is on the space rather than the materials. All doors and windows are made from wood and can be totally slid away to make the inside and outside merge, each room has an air-conditioning unit and plenty of power points.
