Luxury Outlook 2022
An ambitious exploration into high-end residential markets across the globe.
This spectacular plot of land is one of the last untouched headlands in Sri Lanka’s Southern Province. Located one-hour drive from the historic city of Galle (a UNESCO heritage site) and 2h30mins from Colombo’s International airport, the land is 206 perches oceanfront headland in Dondra. Significantly elevated above sea level with immaculate views of the Dondra lighthouse, the property features a freshwater well, a dramatic blow-hole at high tide and a small cove with direct access to the water. This peaceful plot is high above the road and any surrounding neighbours which makes it a covetable private spot. Beautiful rock formations at the edge of the water complement breath-taking sunrise and sunset sea views. The Southern Province which surrounds it is an idyllic tropical setting of lush palm groves, pristine beaches, boutique restaurants and rolling surf breaks.
The South Cape Villa design (available for purchase additionally, price indicated is for the land only) is conceived in response to this very unique piece of land. It aims to become a landmark for the area; embodying the ultimate understated luxury, a distinctive contemporary property intrinsically designed to be connected to its unique, unprecedented landscape; within Sri Lanka’s burgeoning market. It was designed by ANARCHITECT®, a multiple award-winning architecture, interior architecture and design practice based in Dubai and London; as an exclusive private residence with five-bedrooms, five-baths. Understated luxury villas’ design draws inspiration from the unprecedented clifftop views over the majestic Indian Ocean and an extraordinary sunset vista that frames the historic nineteenth-century Dondra Lighthouse.
The contemporary vernacular design is influenced by Sri Lanka’s early tropical-modernist movement and imagined for a discerning, well-travelled owner or astute investor with impeccable taste for design, in search of a one-of-a-kind retreat. The architecture is immersed within the property’s abundant nature, undisturbed and absorbed by infinite, elevated views of the open ocean, relaxing bay, tropical vegetation and natural blowhole that all surround this rare piece of headland. The estate is designed to serve perfectly as a distinct private residence as well as a high-net-worth exclusive vacation rental offering a luxury boutique hospitality experience.
