There are many different styles of architecture in Phuket, however it’s rare that I come across something truly unique. This week an opportunity to list what must be Phuket’s only ranch came about when I received a call from a long term resident.This particular resident hails from the States, Cody Wyoming to be exact, and when he decided to buy land in Phuket and build his dream home a few years ago he certainly took the style and influence from his ranch life back home.
The location is in the up and coming Mai Khao beach area on the West Coast of Phuket, just North of the airport and inland from the national park, and less than a kilometre from the beach. The setting is stunning, you drive down a small tree lined road, turn the corner and suddenly you come across this quirky but beautiful small ranch.
This wooden structure ranch is built over two levels with a loft design inside and the only bedroom upstairs. Downstairs the open plan kitchen and lounge area leads to the large covered terrace overlooking the peaceful water ways which surround the house. There are certainly features you just don’t expect to see in Phuket, like the large chimney stack beautifully built out off Phuket stone, but it’s these features that add to its charm (he tells me it’s possible to smoke your own meats !!).
This really is a one of a kind home, and would appeal to somebody that appreciates the simple things in life and the natural beauty that Phuket offers, as the location and setting is peaceful, serene, and very relaxing.
There is also room for expansion as there is plenty of room to extend the ranch or even for another building on this 1,300 sq.m plot,
This land and villa Ranch package is for sale at 4.8 million Thai baht.
