Hikkaduwa area/Dodanduwa :- The House is located in between Hikkaduwa and Galle in the lovely Buddhist coastal village of Dodanduwa. This property comprises 208.5 perches and located in a very quiet, peaceful village, walking distance from the beach. It is just a couple of kilometres from Hikkaduwa with all its amenities and attractions, yet it enjoys a rural feel, away from the hustle and bustle. This villa, which is more than one hundred years old, has an interesting history and exudes character. It is built in a traditional style and has many original features, such as the beautiful hardwood doors and screens. The villa has 4 bedrooms & 2 bath rooms, an office or storage room and a library space. It also has the relatively unusual feature of a first floor, where there are two more good sized rooms; these are not yet fully redeveloped but offer a great opportunity for more living space or further bedrooms. Also on the first floor is a stunning gallery with views to the ground floor. This really adds to the unique feel of the house and creates a wonderful breeze and natural ventilation throughout the whole house. To the front of the house is a spacious verandah, perfect for enjoying an evening drink and watching the world go by. Tucked away at the rear is an enclosed courtyard where you can enjoy breakfast. At the back of the house is a simple but spacious kitchen and store room, plus staff accommodation. To the rear of the property is a double garage, which is useful for storing vehicles or equipment.The property has been renovated by the foreign present owners, but now requires some upgrading and investment to get it to a perfect condition. It has air conditioning units in the four bedrooms, and fans elsewhere.There is a good water well and also a Government mains water connection and single phase electricity connection. This property would be hugely improved by the addition of a pool, and there is perfect spot for this to the side of the house. The large garden has some wonderful fruit trees as well as plenty of established plants. One section is grass, and beyond a small fence the land is more natural. The villa will be sold including the furniture.This is a house which is full of charm and would make a fabulous holiday home or rental property.
