Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I and my wife have lived and worked all over in Asia for over 30 years now. We love being in Asia although we regularly return to Sweden for holidays. My family and I have used holiday homes around Asia and know what holiday makers want based on what I expect myself for my own family and listening to holiday makers.

Why the Owner Chose Wadduwe:
We actually built the house following my retirement from employment. We are 4 families who built one house each, sharing swimming pool and tennis court. The reason we selected Wadduwa is simply because it combines the tranquility of the countryside with the commuting distance to Colombo.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The convenience of having everything within reach and the luxury of having staff, butler, chef, maid, driver, gardeners etc.
