The splendid, four-bedroom, Villa De Suma rests upon 600 square metres of land within the secure and prestigious Laksmana Villas Estate, just footsteps away from the Indian Ocean at Petitenget Beach, Seminyak, on Bali’s southwest coast.
Completed in 2013, the contemporary architectural style maximises space and embraces a rustic-yet-refined theme. The property is characterised by red tiled roofs, dark recycled ironwood timbers, volcanic lava stone, grey polished concrete floors, custom-designed modern furnishings and Asian antiques. The villa is comprised of three buildings – a grand living and dining pavilion, sheltered by a soaring roof and open at the front to the 15-metre swimming pool and garden; and two, double-storey, sleeping pavilions, each housing two bedrooms. The living area and all four bedrooms have audio visual facilities, while Wi-Fi internet access is available throughout. The fully equipped professional kitchen and staff service area, together with a back-up generator set, is unobtrusively tucked away at the side of the property. There is also a guest washroom, and a secure parking area.
There are four air-conditioned bedrooms at Villa De Suma, two upstairs and two downstairs, paired in the standalone double-storey pavilions at either end of the swimming pool. Each features a polished-concrete tiled floor and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the pool, and each is equipped with a safe deposit box, an independently controlled satellite-channel TV, a DVD player, and an iPod dock. Three of the bedrooms are furnished with king-sized beds and one is furnished with Hollywood twin beds that convert to a king-sized bed if required. Other furnishings include small sofas and antique chairs, Chinese chests of drawers, bedside tables and reading lamps. Each of the upstairs bedrooms is accessed by an external staircase and each has a high, timber-lined roof and a ceiling fan as well as air-conditioning, and a wide wooden balcony supported by rustic recycled timber pillars and sheltered by a roof. Each bedroom is adjoined by an en-suite bathroom incorporating a large dressing area fitted with wardrobes, a wide washbasin, toilet, and a walk-in monsoon shower with a handheld option under a pergola roof. All needs are considered with wall mirrors lit by custom-made lanterns. The upstairs bathrooms are fitted with bathtubs, while the downstairs bathrooms open to private corners of the swimming pool adjacent to sheltered pool deck terraces.
Surrounded by high walls, the garden is dominated by a beautiful 15-metre swimming pool, which is bordered by a wide ironwood sundeck, and flanked by two ancient frangipani trees, fish ponds, a water feature, and a small patch of lawn. A precious feature is the back wall, which is covered in a blaze of green vertical plants – staghorn ferns, elephant ear taro, cascading vines, parlour palms, trees and tropical shrubs.
Living and Dining
The magnificent, open-fronted, living and dining pavilion epitomises tropical living at its very best. Bordered by the swimming pool, sun deck, garden and fish ponds, this massive room is cooled by natural breezes and ceiling fans. Recycled black ironwood pillars, crafted from old electricity poles, railway sleepers and bridges, support a towering, two-tiered, red-tiled roof, from which hang glass lanterns above a paved polished-concrete floor. The style is masculine and majestic, inspired by a Chinese farmhouse, decorated in neutral shades, and completed with comfortable modern furnishings and glass-fronted cabinets filled with antique artefacts, books and magazines. Entered via an imposing Chinese front door, the pavilion features two distinct areas, one for living and one for dining. The living area is furnished with a deeply-cushioned sofa, segmented upholstered daybeds, and a pair of red lacquered tables. Audio-visual facilities include a Bose music system, a satellite-channel TV and a DVD player. The dining area is furnished with a glass-topped circular dining table for ten – perfect for entertaining, while a Persian rug provides a splash of colour as guests enter the pavilion.
