Characterful house with period features


place Boossa

size 123 perch

Built in the mid twentieth century, this characterful house is packed with original features both outside and in. With some vision and TLC it has the potential to be transformed into a stunning home. It is situated in Boossa near Galle.

The house currently has seven rooms along with two kitchens and a bathroom. There is also a large attic which could be converted easily into further living/sleeping spaces. Additionally, there is a cow shed and an abandoned shop building – perfect for repurposing as a staff house.

The plot extends to 123 perch (just over three-quarters of an acre) so there is ample space to build a pool. The grounds have a wealth of mature trees including papaya, avocado, mangosteen, coconut and mango and are gated with a wall to the front and fencing to the rear. The land is sloping and the house itself occupies the highest elevation on the plot. It faces paddy fields and is approximately 4km from the beach at Boossa.

The access road is well maintained and the property has mains electricity and well water. A mains water connection would be available if required.
