Thailand conjures up enchanting images of long stretches of pristine sand and turquoise sea and a quiet life. With mild temperatures throughout the year, Phuket is a favorite destination for many Europeans who chose to spend an exotic vacation, or for retirement, enjoying the fruits of a lifetime of work. And those who have managed to set aside 4.5 million euro can consider purchasing a marvelous seaside villa that would seem straight out of a dream or glamorous magazine.
Among those responsible for dreaming up this luxury project is Philippe Stark, one of architecture’s visionary geniuses. A modern residence of generous dimensions, the property consists of over 5 thousand square meters, 850 of which comprise the home’s internal space. Located in the exclusive Cape Yamu, one of Thailand’s most desirable areas, with a truly unbelievable view that extends to the famous limestone cliffs of Phang Nga Bay. This is definitely one of Thailand’s treasures.
The magnificent villa is situated in a lush tropical park, which was left as intact as possible during the villa’s construction. The home features five bedrooms, each with glass walls guaranteeing glorious natural light to flow in, not to mention the breathtaking view, especially at sunset. These glass walls open when desired, allowing the Andaman sea breeze to perfume the entire home.
The villa has two kitchens, one designed for formal receptions and one intended for everyday entertaining, which opens directly to the large dining and living room area. This home offers two distinguished sophisticated and convivial environments: internal and external, with the former having various access points to the latter. Outside, a luxurious swimming pool surrounds nearly the entire residence.
Every part of this home was designed to exalt the area’s natural features, allowing its residents to admire the spectacle of the home’s natural surroundings. Thai style terraces offer the perfect scene for a candle lit dinner with a view of the moonlight over the sea. The home itself was built using as much natural materials as possible: bamboo fiber, wood, glass and steel to minimize the environmental impact.
