Luxury Villa for sale at Galle Fort Listing #: 2355

Villa for sale at the Galle Fort in Galle, Sri Lanka – Relax, Indulge, Escape.

History : Built sometime in the mid 1800’s, the property can be traced through title deeds showing ownership of families such as The Fox’s in 1903, The Jansz and the Blacker family in the 1920’s and the Marikar family in the 1930’s. The current owner discovered the derelict property in 2002 whilst visiting friends in Galle Fort. The house was home to a donkey and the Fort was a community with no shops, restaurants or boutique hotels. Fast forward 15 years and Galle Fort is now a hustling and bustling tourist destination with fantastic hotels, bars and restaurants, and this villa sits right bang in the middle of the action. Having undergone a 3 year renovation in 2002 and more recently another renovation, the villa is considered Galle’s first and most loved luxury home, staffed by three long serving Sri Lankan’s who love nothing more than to cook wonderful meals and show guests around Galle Fort and its surrounding beaches.

Today it offers its guests a peaceful and tranquil retreat from the hustle and bustle of Galle Fort. Retaining all its original charm (the walls of the main house are made of coral and date back over 150 years), the villa boasts all the luxuries one would expect in a modern luxury villa: and has made this a favorite destination for so many discerning travelers over the past 10 years.
