It is rare to find a beachfront property directly overlooking the Indian Ocean in this region of southern Sri Lanka. This two-storey house stands on a prime piece of beach land covering 1375 square metres located in the small village of Thalpe, a 20-minute drive east of the historic Galle Fort, now a UNESCO Heritage Site. This four bedroomed property can be renovated and upgraded to create a magnificent four or five bedroomed villa or guesthouse. A coral reef out to sea makes swimming safe all year round, and just 100 meters away is a natural rock-formation pool, where swimming is safe even for the very young.
Wonderful shoreline walks can be enjoyed along the beach, which stretches for more than two kilometres. With an investment in the region of approximately 160,000 US$, this property could be converted into an exclusive beachside villa with its own swimming pool. Given its prime location on the southern coast of Sri Lanka, which enjoys heavy demand from international investors and foreign tourists, such an investment would most likely double the value of the property within just one year.
