The view is an
ultra-modern and sophisticated waterfront villa, perched on an elevated
headland above a semi-private beach in Taling Ngam. Located in an
extremely private and secluded enclave, yet within a short stroll of
restaurants, bars, and spas, as well as the InterContinental Resort, the
property features spectacular sunset sea views over the landmark Five
Islands, Angthong Marine Park, and beyond. Sleeping up to 10 adults and
6 children in 6 bedrooms, The View is spacious and elegantly furnished,
with an exciting range of entertainment areas and extensive facilities.
A private driveway leads to the spacious forecourt, and the impressive gated entrance to
the property, which reveals spectacular 180 degree panoramic sea views.
From the entrance, a bridge connects to the formal living room on the
first floor of the main building, and a stairway accesses the pool level
on the ground floor. The large 3-storey structure is glass-walled, and
faces dramatic sea views, with a near vertical verdant garden featuring
a cascading waterfall to the rear. The three floors are interconnected
by a central floating glass staircase, which is illuminated at night as
a sculptural element.
On the ground floor, the 16 metre infinity-edge lap pool features a built-in Jacuzzi at one
end, with a sun-deck and loungers to the rear. Facing the pool is a
casual open-sided living area, including a lounge and dining table,
served by a kitchen, BBQ, and bar, as well as a retractable cinema
projector system. At the far side of the pool, steps lead down to a
sunken terrace with a secluded massage area. A large lawn on the
opposite side of the pool offers a croquet play area.
The first floor living room overlooks a Koi pond and the waterfall to the rear, with glass
walls opening onto a balcony and sea breezes to the front. The lounge is
furnished with sumptuous sofas facing the view and a cinema projector
screen, and includes an internet-ready iMac loaded with 40000 iTunes and
movies that can be piped to the sound system throughout the property, as
well as the movie projector systems. Between the lounge and dining room,
the floating glass staircase leads up to the third floor, and down to
the pool. The air-conditioned lounge and dining areas are separated by
sliding glass walls. A long dining table seats up to 20 and is served by
a fully-equipped kitchen to the rear.
On the top floor, the 2 largest master bedroom suites feature spacious dressing rooms that are
suitable for baby cots, and en-suite bathrooms with walk-in rain
showers. One of the master suites also features a second open shower in
the bedroom, for slightly titillating immersion into the sea view. Both
bedrooms include secondary outdoor bathrooms, one with a double bath tub
on a wooden platform deck, and the other with a private garden shower.
Slide away glass walls again open onto full-length balconies facing the views.
On the far side of the expansive lawn, accessed from the pool level, are 2 further master
bedroom suites in detached pavilions, featuring indoor bathrooms with
tubs and showers, and wrap-around timber balconies. All 4 of the
air-conditioned en-suite master bedrooms are spacious and attractive,
with sea views, floor-to ceiling glass walls opening onto private
balconies, and include king-size beds, writing desks, wardrobes, large
safes, minibars, ceiling-fans, iPod docks, and 32” satellite LCD/DVD systems.
A suspended wooden bridge leads to a separate pavilion that includes a kids’ dorm, with 6
single bunk beds, and an adjacent twin bedroom that can accommodate
additional children, nannies, or grandparents at an extra daily charge.
A bathroom with shower interconnects the dorm and twin bedroom, which
opens onto a private balcony overlooking the sea. The dorm includes an
adjacent play area with a ping-pong table and a hammock.
A stairway leads down through the wooded slope to a semi-private beach, which is bordered by a
creek at the far end. The beach has been structured into a small
amphitheatre, with raised seating levels for lounging, sunbathing, and
watching movies on the al-fresco cinema screen. Double and triple sea
kayaks are available from the beach, which is also an idyllic wedding venue.
