Mas Villa,


Price From : US $ 180.00


Mas Villa is a fully refurbished century-old Kandyan Wallawwa (manor house) that dates back to the early 1800s. In more recent times, it was the home of the late Gamini Dissanayake, a political leader who was responsible for the creation of the nearby Kotmale Hydro power plant in the 1980s. The Dissanayake family continues to own the property. The original design features of this Kandyan Wallawwa – including courtyards, verandas and even the `atuwa’ (granary) that is so typical in these manor houses – has been retained and updated with all modern conveniences. The interiors are tastefully decorated with Dutch period antiques. Mas Villa is set on 11 acres of lush tropical gardens that attracts numerous species of birds.

Six bedrooms are situated on the ground floor whilst the spacious master bedroom occupies the entire first floor and has magnificent views across the Kotmale reservoir and the surrounding mountains.
