This beautiful Mediterranean style home is located at the end of an avenue in Royale Tagaytay; this extension is a ‘No Exit’ road, so there’s no passing traffic and, better still, there are no immediate neighbours.Total covered living area of approximately 450 sqm. (4,500 sq ft) is on three floors plus 85 sqm. (915 sq ft) fully tiled roof terrace and private landscaped gardens of approximately 470 sqm. (5,000 sq ft).
This home was designed and built to a very high standard by its British owners in 2009. It stands on a 788 sqm. lot with a further 220 sqm. ‘orchard’ with fruit trees, which backs onto a dry creek. The gardens are completely private and not overlooked from any direction.
This exceptional family home is expertly decorated and maintained in keeping with the style. Some of the furniture, which was hand made to the owners designs and specification, is available to purchase if required.
There are four bedrooms including the master suite; and three bathrooms, plus separate powder room off the main entrance hall. The home was designed so that it can easily extend to five or even six bedrooms. At the basement there are the maids and drivers quarters, with separate toilet and hot shower facilities.
