A luxurious 1,384 sqm villa that was featured in a 2007 issue of Architectural Digest is listed for sale in Chiang Mai, Thailand. The owner expects to sell it for no less than THB 763,000 (USD 23,800) per sqm. Bill Bensley, a prominent architect, designed the entire villa and its surroundings.
The genius of his architectural solution lies in a delicate combination of traditional Northern Thai designs and modern comforts. Walls of windows, vaulted ceilings and elegant furniture create a sunny and welcoming atmosphere.
This magnificent architectural masterpiece, featured in Architectural Digest in April 2007, is cradled on a handsome land plot of four acres, located in Chiang Mai in the foothills of the Himalayas. The entire residence and surroundings has been designed by renowned architect Bill Bensley to provide the ultimate in luxury living, creating an environment rich with modern comforts yet complementing Northern Thailand’s rustic natural beauty and charming traditions.
The property is comprised of seven main structures including living, dining, master bedroom suite, studio and three private guest pavilions, as well as three additional salas.
Each pavilion is built from reclaimed and recycled teak wood, and has been conceived and designed as a personal sanctuary, with each room recalling the grace of traditional Lanna style. Unique vaulted ceilings, entire walls of windows and subtle tones create a blend of natural light and free-flowing space, while decorative doors and shutters recall the splendour of the Lanna era. Teakwood floors and large area rugs ground the interior design, hearkening back to an era of grace and elegance.
Designed in harmony with nature, the residence is enclosed in its own beautifully and quirkily landscaped grounds. Conceived as an extension of the visual language of each villa, the gardens enfold from the villa and its private pool in a landscape rich with natural streams, boulders, and a diverse array of tropical flora and plant life, sculptures and lit pathways.
