Gracious and Spacious in Seminyak
The tasteful design elements such as high ceilings, cool limed terracotta tiled floors and large terraces give the home an airy feel. The villa has been rebuilt with the very best of amenities and to the highest of standards. The proportions of all of the living areas and bedrooms are generous, and the interior furnishings have been tastefully integrated throughout, with comfortable white over sized rattan armchairs, and lounges.
Guests enter through a set of traditional double Balinese doors opening onto a Aling Aling wall behind which is a small fish pond with a Barong face water feature. The garden is simple and easy on the eye, edged with several rare and mature Hawaiian palm trees. There are two swimming pools. The pool opposite the living area is kidney shaped and has several pool deck chairs and a cushioned Pool Bale. The second smaller rectangle pool divides the living Pavilion from the master bedroom pavilion.
Importantly, the house truly feels like a home, every room features old Bali and Javanese framed prints, collected antique batiks and decorative timber pieces and selected books, music, films and a variety of family board games The kitchen is the heart of the home, where many guests enjoy mixing their own drinks and telling stories of their day.
From the main living pavilion a wide white palimanan terrace takes you through to the bedroom courtyard which is U shaped. The two bedroom pavilions are separated by a feature wall of three antiqued limed Bali doors that are beautifully lit at night. There are four bedrooms downstairs and one upstairs. All the downstairs bedrooms have wide double doors which open onto the courtyard. As one would expect from any discerning villa all bedrooms are air-conditioned, with overhead ceiling fans and all have an en-suite bathroom. Four bedrooms have large super king 200 x 200 sized beds, one bedroom has large twin beds, which can be put together as a Queen sized bed. Three bedrooms have large walk in robes and two have wardrobes, all with safety deposit boxes and plenty of storage space for luggage. The bedrooms have been simply decorated with individual colour themes but have been tastefully integrated to have the same soft rose-tinted terracotta edged in timber floors and continue the cool white theme of crisp white walls, white rattan easy chairs and white linens.
Study / Media Room
The media room has been cleverly designed to give access and easily connect the three bedrooms in the separate master bedroom pavilion. This is an ideal set up for families. The master bedroom has an internal door which opens onto the media/study room. The media room also is the access to the bedroom upstairs, with the twin bedroom only a few steps away. The TV Room has a wall unit with, cable TV and DVD player, a wall to wall built in sofa, a cozy nook for relaxing.
Villa Sipo is in a prime location, on the fringe of Seminyak and Petitenget so Guests are a short walk to La Luchiola, Potato Head, Ku De Ta and Bodyworks Spa. We think this property is a genuine family Villa, ticking so many boxes with character, style, layout and location!
