Sea Horse Ranch Travel & News, May 2018


Featured Property - Villa Balinese

Villa Balinese is a beautifully presented four bedroom home with a European feel. Located in one of the most sought-after areas in Sea Horse Ranch, this home has been designed and decorated to a high standard. Overlooking a tropical garden oasis, Villa Balinese is set high on the land, enjoying refreshing island breezes.

The main entrance of the villa features a Pagoda and leads to an open kitchen, dining and living area. The kitchen offers a counter-top bar and connects to a dining area, as well as a charming, enclosed garden courtyard with French doors that let in abundant natural light. The courtyard is perfect for entertaining with its own covered kitchenette, and authentic Mexican Chiminea as a focal point.

The unique layout of the home offers stunning garden and pool views from nearly every room, with a wrap-around terrace that sits above the grounds. The hillside inspires the concept of this one-story home. The main entrance is at ground level, while the interior has a lofty feel and views from a higher setting. A walkway from the back terrace leads down into a beautifully landscaped garden and a bi-level pool area with a Guest Cottage at the far edge of the lawn.

Three bedrooms are located in the main house, all with en-suite baths. There are two Master Suites with garden views, a guest bedroom, and the fourth bedroom has been converted into an artist studio.

The main Master Suite is entered through its own separate study/media room and has a cathedral ceiling with floor-to-ceiling glass doors that slide open to provide incredible views of the surrounding tropical gardens.

The Guest Cottage is equipped as a laundry room, which may easily be converted to a private studio suite for guests or maid’s quarters. A flowering-covered pergola in front of the home has space for two automobiles.

Villa Balinese has been designed to provide comfortable accommodation for a family while offering a stylish lifestyle for a couple.
