A 1900 ancestral plantation home of the Fernando family.

 

Renowned "˜boutique' hotelier and son and wife team, have renovated this charming mansion into a luxurious heritage residence with stunning 360 degree vistas.

 

It is situated within a  coconut plantation, deep in the arable countryside of the Western province enroute from the airport to Kandy or the Cultural Triangle - a wonderful respite before onward travel. 

 

Away from all "˜city and Western ways`, the house and the large landscaped gardens overlook its working estate.  The frangipani lined drive leads to the white mansion and to the rear, a glistening 50ft pool.  An inviting outdoor Jacuzzi bubbles beside the manicured lawn and tranquil waterfall feature.

 

 

Step inside to terracotta floors and the beamed ceilings of a central hall.  Panama hats,  antique furniture and brass artefacts fill every nook and cranny.  Sweep through the dining room and pantry and along an open corridor to the main kitchen where immaculate and efficient staff prepare the evening meal or afternoon tea.  An extensive library and luxurious rooms will lull you into a calm and relaxed state.

 

A perfect start or finish to life on this serendipitous island.
