An 18th-century Dutch villa restored to its former glory with modern additions, 20 Middle Street is ensconced within the Galle Fort overlooking the gabled-roof of the Dutch Reform Church and the iconic red-tiled fort roof. The five-bedroom villa has been designed by renowned architect Channa Daswatte and it incorporates elements of tropical modernity combined with an old-world charm.
Individual buildings house the bedrooms, an annexe with a lounge, or loggia, downstairs that unfurls into the garden and pool area, and a garden cottage with a relaxed vibe. 20 Middle Street is the perfect home for a family vacation with your loved ones.
Designed to offer the most relaxing atmosphere conducive to a great holiday, the five bedrooms at 20 Middle Street are stylish, chic, and modern with the same reformed Dutch accents that add to their character. The master bedroom is designed to provide views across the pool and garden as well as the Dutch Reform Church. The garden cottage is a private escape with a minimal vibe while two bedrooms are inter-connected to form a perfect family suite.
The last bedroom features vaulted ceilings for excellent ventilation. The bedrooms are furnished with four-poster king beds crafted with natural teak and the vintage furniture elevates the décor. Air-conditioned and well-furnished, the bedrooms are an oasis you would never wish to leave. Each bedroom has a spectacular ensuite with modern amenities.
The notable façade of 20 Middle Street is ebullient with the verdure of lush greenery and beautiful bougainvillea flowers. The entire villa is inter-connected keeping in mind that the indoors are never far from the verdant outdoors. An 8-metre swimming pool resides by the pool house with a terrace housing sun loungers.
Expansive gardens with outdoor seating and a veranda where you can relax while watching the sunset, dine alfresco, and enjoy delicious tea. Indulge in a yoga class on the terrace as it is spacious enough to accommodate everyone.
At 20 Middle Street, the annexe is the centre of all the action which connects to the outdoor terrace and the pool area. The loggia is where you can rest with a book or watch the scenery. The living area is exquisite, luxurious, and sophisticated with a cream colour palate, natural teak wood furniture, rustic shelves lined with books, and antique lamps for ambient lighting. A true colonial-inspired house, 21 Middle Street is straight out of a history book. You have modern comforts in place like air-conditioning, etc.
Apart from the gorgeous décor that includes artefacts and souvenirs sourced from across the world, the living room is truly a common area for the entire family to enjoy together.Luxury oozes from each corner including the stunning corridor lined with framed mirrors, consoles, and bright plants. Dining is an equally opulent affair with a great teak table laid out with the finest crystal. A villa chef is present to prepare mouth-watering Sri Lankan and international cuisines. The games room is open to all with a pool table, DVD/ book library, and Smart TV.
An ideal location on Middle Street is in the heart of Galle, a historic city with 17th-century Dutch architecture. The fort that houses the villa is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the villa faces the Dutch Reform Church.
