Maya Villa is a refurbished manor house built at the end of the 19th century, set on a two-acre estate overlooking terraced paddy fields. The property has been caringly restored by its current owner, Niki Fairchild, a British interior designer, and the original wallawwa now houses the lounge and two bedrooms. A new building has been added to the rear of the house which contains three more bedrooms and living spaces. The two buildings are linked by a central courtyard with a spectacular L shaped swimming pool. The exquisite heritage architecture has been retained, including verandas and courtyards, doors and windows with intricate lattice work and the clay-tiled roof, whilst the rest of the house has been modernised with polished cement floors and stylish contemporary interiors.
