The riverside home lies in a sleepy hollow in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the east side of Koh Chang National park in Thailand, Set amongst a mature landscaped garden overlooking the crystal clear waters of the river. It is constructed of traditional hand made materials and a variety of hardwoods and is built on 800Sqm of Chanote titled land.
It is located ten minutes walk from a quiet beach and ten minutes walk from some of the most beautiful waterfalls and pools on the island. The river is reserved for locals use only so it remains a haven for Thailand’s flora and fauna and offers a peace and tranquility that is hard to find on Koh Chang nowadays. Butterflies and nectar drinking birds thrive on the blossoms and flowers in the garden.
The house is situated approximately one hundred and seventy meters from the main road. Accessed by a government registered road that leads to ample parking at the front of the property. A large solid wood door at the side of the property leads to a small courtyard and then onto the riverside home with panoramic views of the lush riverside gardens.
Large glass windows at the front of the home enable a one hundred at eighty degree view of the landscaped gardens and river, at the back of the property the owners have used antique teak wood windows, when open they shed sufficient light to illuminate the two bedrooms and when closed create a perfect sleeping environment. Windows and doors around the property allow the cool river breeze to penetrate the home. The exposed wooden beam and terra cotta tile roof allow any heat to escape , low eves prevent the sun shining directly into the living areas keeping the temperature to a minimum. The river also provides natural cooling for the property.
