PROPERTY DESCRIPTION
On the first floor is the bright and airy living room that features hand-painted tile-effect floors, trompe l'oeil decorative walls, and an adjacent dining room with several sets of glass doors that open onto the grounds. A wall of carved Chinese panels opens onto a shower room that serves two beautifully furnished guest bedrooms. Downstairs is the library & media room with a 3/4 size bed in the Library. Included is a 42-inch flat screen TV- as well as paintings, prints, textiles and numerous books that stay at the villa.

Upstairs is the octagonal bedroom that has a king-size bed and fabulous views of the property and beyond.

Downstairs, located off the Living room- is the third bedroom with two twin beds and a view of the ponds and garden.

Adjoining is a separate pavilion housing the magnificent Antique Chinese queen-bedded master suite, complete with a soaring roof, frescoed walls, and a grand fireplace.

The sumptuous bathroom has double basins, walk-in shower, bathtub and a spa section for massages, with a private door to the freshwater swimming pool. The antique Chinese doors that form the front wall of the pavilion open onto a large terrace featuring drop-dead views, two deck chairs and a daybed.

Further along the ridge is the Bamboo House which includes an antique brass four-poster bed, armoire, chairs and a small covered bathroom with outdoor shower.

One final pavilion, by the koi pond, contains a well-equipped kitchen with all the things one might need on holiday. Its wonderful wall of antique porcelain plates give you an sense of place. Behind the kitchen in the staff area is the owner's private quarters where their two adorable daschhounds live full time.

The villa

As the translated name suggests, the influence of feng shui shows in the villa's orientation. It is built on the ‘dragon's back', with hills behind the house and water in front – denoting the flow of health, well-being and prosperity for its residents. Its architecture overlays traditional Bali structures with a strong Chinoiserie theme. The interior design reveals the owners' passion for Asia and appreciation of Asian heritage, culture and art.

It is a location you will fall in love with and want to come back to over and over again.
