Ivory House Living
Ivory House is a stunning blend of Dutch colonial aesthetics and sleek modern décor with a massive private pool offering delicious respite from the midday sun. The property has been carefully designed to enable guests to fully appreciate the lush beauty of the surrounding region, with a lavish wrap-around terrace offering stunning vistas of the beautiful rice fields hugging the property.
The open-plan living room features a muted colour scheme of crisp whites and soft greys, allowing the luscious green views visible through the glass bi-fold doors to take centre stage. When not busy exploring the lush gardens or tea plantation behind the estate, go and lounge by the exotic pool and feel like a truly blessed colonial acreage owner from times gone by watching over your land. When you have fantasised enough, head back indoors and dive into the heather grey sofa and flick through the channels on the massive flatscreen TV.
The dining room houses a stunning ebony dining table. While tucking into a meal prepared in the villa’s kitchen, guests can opt for throwing open the teakwood doors to reveal mesmerising views overlooking the rice fields, or close the doors for a more intimate setting. For alfresco dining, the villa offers a beautiful round dining table perched outside on the verandah where you can enjoy the sounds of the birds and playful monkeys high in the sky.
Garden & Pool
Ivory House has a stunning 20-metre swimming pool, which is shaded by towering-high palm trees. The massive pool is perfect for clocking some serious laps in – though you might be distracted by the jaw-dropping views overlooking the surrounding rice fields. After splashing around in the cool clear waters of the pool, climb out on to the sundeck and park yourself on one of the sleek deckchairs.
