The Armhurst Estate is a trophy asset of unparalleled pedigree and provenance.
Nestled back in a valley amidst pineapple groves and soaring mountains, the house is perched high on a promontory overlooking the Gulf of Thailand and the lights of the distant mainland.
Armhurst is an iconic 5 bedroom, 4 and a half bath, 550 square meter family home set alone on a 7 rai (3 acre) parcel of Chanote Title land. The plot directly borders Koh Chang's lush national parklands yet is easily accessed by paved roads and more than two hundred meters of private driveways.
There are no neighbors; you will perceive no audible noise from the endeavors of man. The beauty of the jungle melds effortlessly with professionally designed gardens to include a fruit orchard, rubber tree grove, expansive grassy lawns, towering rock formations, a flower garden and dozens of ornamental trees of various species.
The front of the home embraces the patio and pool decks surrounding a split level swimming and lap pool. Inside, soaring ceilings and a spacious, flowing floor plan provide her occupants with expansive spaces for relaxed living. Oversized windows throughout bring sprawling sea and jungle views into the home as if it were a gallery for viewing nature.
Designed with livability in mind, the home boasts five very large bedrooms, all with spacious ensuite baths. One master suite downstairs occupies the back of the house with privacy in mind. A wide central staircase with custom wood and steel railing takes you up Mahogany treads to the second floor living room and additional four bedrooms. Custom walk-in closets with extensive hanging space and built-in wooden shelving provide more storage space than even the most accomplished collectors of clothing could desire.
Two of the second floor bedrooms have private balconies overlooking the entire property and the sea beyond. The open kitchen provides a central gathering place around a very large seating island, accommodating six to eight for informal dining. A formal separate dining room is unveiled by double paneled doors and further opens out onto the covered outdoor seating area with views of surrounding mountains and the Gulf.
A bookcase lined study provides elegant yet relaxed venues for interacting. Materials selected were done so with beauty and longevity in mind. Windows were fashioned from solid Mahogany by master carpenters in Northern Thailand. The solid hardwood tongue and groove flooring throughout gives the feeling of bringing the living jungle inside and underfoot. Fixtures in bathrooms are of the highest quality available, predominantly Kohler, TOTO and American Standard, while appliances throughout the home: the separate laundry room and 5 burner cooktop, dishwasher and microwave are by Electrolux.
Armhurst is a truly rare and precious family estate on an island where a fortunate few encounter far fewer of life's disturbances and distractions.
