About the villa:
A Villa blends the best of contemporary and traditional Bali design elements in a prime champagne-popping Seminyak location moments from Petitenget Beach. Featured in many lifestyle magazines, this paean to laid-back tropical living was created as a stunning holiday retreat for its sociable, style-conscious owner.
For a three-bedroom villa, the understated yet uber-chic villa is incomparable. Think spacious vaulted living pavilion, multiple dining areas, glamorous bedrooms, Philippe Starck bathrooms, and gorgeous statue-graced garden with 17-metre pool, antique balé, ornamental ponds and rooftop terrace. Add an air-conditioned gym, temperature-controlled wine room, dedicated music control room with centralised iPad-controlled Bose sound system, home office with iMac, Apple TVs, and iPods in every room. Enrich with an extraordinary collection of museum-worthy antiques and artefacts from Bali, Sumba, Nias and beyond.
The villa rests within a exclusive Estate in the heart of Seminyak, a short walk from Ku De Ta, La Lucciola, Potato Head and Bali’s famed surf-and-sunset beaches. It’s the perfect villa for fun-loving friends or a family who relish luxurious, hedonistic surroundings a heartbeat from Bali’s most happening places.
Within the Villa’s large garden, two thatched pavilions face each other across the 17-metre swimming pool, sun deck and lawn. Furthest form the entrance is the two-storey bedroom pavilion, where a pair of guest suites open onto the lawn and, above, an open terrace separates the large master suite from an office/reading room. From here, a pond-lined colonnade – with air-conditioned gym and rooftop terrace above – leads to the professional kitchen and the living and dining pavilion. Behind, off a semi-open gallery that links to the villa’s entrance, is a temperature-controlled wine room.
Bedrooms: 3 bedrooms and 1 study ( that can be bedroom no 4 )
Gazing down on the garden and pool, the king-of-the-castle master suite blends high-tech with home comforts. Under the vaulted roof, a king-size bed with top-quality bedlinen sits before a 50-inch screen with Apple TV, DVD player and Bose sound system. Kimonos and slippers await guests in the walk-through dressing room, leading to a glamorous bathroom with Philippe Starck fittings including the statement bathtub placed under a circular roof light. Both bedroom and bathroom are air-conditioned, and there’s an iPod and dock in both areas.
Opening onto the garden via floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors, the two air-conditioned guest bedrooms are as high-spec as the master, with 32-inch TVs, DVD players, Bose sound systems, iPods, and mood lighting. Queen-size beds rest on teak floors and stylish armchairs and ottomans provide comfy reading corners. There are Philippe Starck fittings in the ensuite bathrooms, balanced with the option of Bali-style indoor/outdoor showers.
Designed for entertaining in style, the huge living and dining pavilion is Villa’s social hub. Striking antique statues and artefacts surround deep-cushioned sofas and a dining table seating eight in supreme comfort. Below the vaulted alang-alang thatched ceiling, the white stone floor flows towards the ironwood deck beyond walls of sliding glass doors that can be closed for air-conditioned cool or flung open for breezy tropical living.
A magnificently carved antique joglo-style balé suspended over one end of the pool provides a magical setting for semi-alfresco dinners, with gourmet fare created in the state-of-the-art kitchen close by.
There’s further entertaining space on the roof terrace – a private suntrap with parasol-shaded loungers overlooking the pool. On the same level, above the colonnaded walkway, is an air-conditioned gym, where the exercise-inclined can work out to their heart’s content while watching TV if they wish. Guests needing to keep a half-eye on business while on vacation can retreat to the Study where a computer sits on a massive desk oriented for the pool views.
Daybeds tucked into terraces and walkway recesses provide languid corners for siestas. Within the garden, couples can curl up in the huge circular all-weather wicker sofas under a cluster of fragrant Frangipani trees, or head for the many comfortably cushioned sun loungers on the ironwood deck lining the 17-metre swimming pool.
The villa sits securely within a Estate in the heart of Seminyak’s Golden Triangle. A five-minute walk away is Pettitenget Beach, renowned for its spectacular surf breaks; the beach stretches for kilometres in either direction – southwards to the popular beaches of Seminyak, Legian and Kuta and northwards to Batubelig, Canggu and beyond. La Lucciola is only moments away, and Ku De Ta, Sarong and other much-lauded restaurants and bars are within easy walking distance.
The villa is fully license to operate as holiday rental villa.mark
