The Claughton House in Tangalle, Sri Lanka, is being offered for sale for the first time since its construction in 1985. Located in beautiful south Sri Lanka in the Tangalle area, this iconic villa property is one of the most spectacular waterfront sites in Southeast Asia. Although the property is currently owned and managed as a luxury villa, the site is perfectly suited for a commercial development site as either a boutique hotel or villa project. The House sits on a spectacular, highly private 7.3 acre site (2.96 hectares) with 1,200 feet (370 meters) of protected Kudawella Bay waterfront. The house is elevated (at 25 meters) and well protected on a headland featuring mature coconut palms and dramatic Indian ocean views. The lower acreage provides extensive frontage on the beautiful Kudawella Beach, offering outstanding safe swimming for families as well an intermediate surf break. Designed by Geoffrey Bawa, founder of the Tropical Modernism School of architecture, the property is widely recognized for its important architecture, the breathtaking waterfront site, as well as the overall beauty and serenity of the property.
