South Coast » Dickwella » Blue Heights
Blue Heights is a very apt name for this family friendly tropical home that sits on a rise near Dickwella. Tantalising glimpses of the sparkling southern ocean and silhouettes of ships scattering the horizon can be spied through the comb-like leaves of the coconut palms as you lounge or dine on the shady veranda. One-and-a-half-acres of garden is dotted with blossoming frangipani and pots of hot pink bougainvillea, gently slopes down the hillside to a narrow road that descends to the beach. Midway down the garden sits a glorious, infinity-edge swimming pool with jacuzzi which laps up the sunshine and savours the best of the views.

The house comprises two buildings and was designed by Amila de Mel, a protégé of the late Geoffrey Bawa. Modern yet minimal, the linear main house stretches almost the entire width of the land ensuring that whether you’re sat on the long veranda, in the dining area, in the lounge or in the bedroom, the views are equally good and without obstruction. The location is blissfully quiet, and although entertainment is provided (the house has a TV, DVD player and books), the garden is a magnet for wildlife and provides a gentle theatrical setting of its own. You might see peacocks strutting alongside the pool, squirrels chasing each other up and down palms or prehistoric-looking monitor lizards wandering stealthily across the lawn.

A second building, tucked to the side of the main house, houses a further three bedrooms, including an expansive upper floor master bedroom with its own private sun deck. A husband-and-wife team tend to your requirements, prepare delicious Sri Lankan food (all provisions for food and drink are charged at cost price) and keep the house shipshape.
