A charming and secluded teakwood country manor fully furnished in Saraphi, only 20km from Chiang Mai International airport with easy access to the Ring Roads and the Super Highway. The house also has easy access to the lovely provincial capital city of Lamphun.
A 200m long driveway leads to the house. On the left is the main longan orchard and a barn that houses a collection of old hardwood which is included in the sale. On the right are longan and other fruit trees.
Sitting by the side of a lake and neatly kept landscape, the teakwood house offers all modern comforts whilst keeping the Lanna charm. The house has large open living and dining areas on the ground floor overlooking the lake. There is a fully fitted Western kitchen, a large pantry, a bathroom and a storage room.
The teakwood staircase leads to a traditional Thai landing area with the en-suite master bedroom to the right and three further bedrooms, all en-suite to the left. Each bedroom has its own separate balcony.. The master bedroom includes a dressing room and has sliding doors on three sides providing panoramic views including of Doi Suthep as well as a virtually total wrapped around balcony.
To the left of the house there is a covered car port, a new separate study/guest suite with full en-suite with beautiful views of the lake, the garden and Doi Suthep. Further away are two small poultry houses (ducks and geese). To the right there is a sala sitting above the water, great for entertaining, private dining/barbeque or fishing! A restroom is also here. The lawns and garden area have an automatic pop-up sprinkler system using water from the lake. The water in the lake is maintained at the level desired as it is linked to the official area irrigation system. The orchard contains about 120 longan trees together with several other fruits for home consumption and is irrigated by canals throughout the area. In addition, there are teak trees planted.
This is a truly serene country living and yet under thirty minutes drive to Chiang Mai City.
