With its mesmerising indian Ocean coastlines, stunning natural scenery and welcoming culture, it is little wonder that Sri Lanka continues to be know as one of the most spectacular places across the globe to live. On offer here is a chance to invest into this consistently magnificent part of the world with these beautiful properties. At the current price, which is based on just the land, these properties surely won’t be on the market for very long.
Located in Borella, one of the largest suburbs in Sri Lanka’s commercial capital Colombo, these stunning properties consist of a 3 bedroom house plus staff quarters and a 4 bedroom house plus staff quarters, all bedrooms also feature ensuite bathrooms. The properties also contain garages and are located in a beautifully landscaped and private garden, perfect for soaking up the warm sunshine in. As well as being close to essential amenities like shops and restaurants, the properties have the added advantage of being close to many of the area’s breath-taking beaches and other areas of outstanding natural beauty such as nearby Viharamahadevi Park.
These properties don’t just offer the owner a spacious and luxurious place to live but also a venture into the holiday rental market. Thanks to the emergence of direct rental sites such as Airbnb and booking.com, this market is going through a golden age right now and Colombo is one of the fastest growing destinations across Asia in this context.
Colombo is also the perfect base from which to discover many of Sri Lanka’s other fascinating areas such as nearby Sri Jayawardenepura.
For those with an even greater sense of adventure, Sri Lanka is also just a relatively short boat trip away from discovering the many fascinating countries and cultures of nearby india.
Sports and leisure fans will be delighted with the vast array of walking, cycling and fishing areas in the vicinity and the area is also close to many stunning golf courses such as Royal Colombo Golf Club which is just half a mile away.
The area is also very well-connected transport wise both on the ground and in the air with Colombo international Airport just 9 miles away. This is of course yet another huge plus point in the context of the holiday rental market.
ABOUT THE AREA
Endless beaches, timeless ruins, welcoming people, oodles of elephants, rolling surf, cheap prices, fun trains, famous tea and flavourful food make Sri Lanka irresistible.
You might say Sri Lanka has been hiding in plain sight. Scores of travellers have passed overhead on their way to someplace else, but years of uncertainty kept Sri Lanka off many itineraries.
Now, however, all that has changed. The country is moving forward quickly as more and more people discover its myriad charms. Lying between the more trodden parts of india and Southeast Asia, Sri Lanka’s history, culture and natural beauty are undeniably alluring. it’s the place you haven’t been to yet, that you should.
Few places have as many UNESCO World Heritage Sites (eight) packed into such a small area. Sri Lanka’s 2000-plus years of culture can be discovered at ancient sites where legendary temples boast beautiful details even as they shelter in caves or perch on prominent peaks. More recent are evocative colonial fortresses, from Galle to Trincomalee.
Across the island, that thing that goes bump in the night might be an elephant heading to a favourite waterhole. Safari tours of Sri Lanka’s pleasantly relaxed national parks encounter leopards, water buffaloes, all manner of birds and a passel of primates.
Colombo has emerged as a must-see stop in Sri Lanka. No longer just the sprawling city you have to endure on your way to the beaches, it has become a worthy destination in its own right and makes an excellent start – or finish – to your Sri Lankan adventures.
The legacies of colonial Colombo’s garden roots are still very much intact along its often-shady boulevards. Fort is a compelling place thanks to ongoing restoration of its landmark colonial architecture, while Pettah brims with markets and rampant commerce. Even traffic-clogged Galle Rd is getting spiffier with glossy new hotel complexes.
Colombo’s cosmopolitan side supports ever-more stylish eateries, galleries and shops. Surprises abound: with a little exploration you’ll find great local food, characterful shops and tiny, convivial cafes. Meanwhile, a building boom like no other is transforming the city’s skyline.
