Pasikudah Tourism Zone

One of the most unique historic properties in such a well-maintained and original state that we have found in Sri Lanka. The original building dates back to the year 1750 which was extended in the year 1828 to it’s current size. The property has one large and several smaller courtyards and about 8+ rooms which could potentially be converted into bedrooms.

From ancestral times until nowadays the owners have always looked after the property, hepatitis maintained it well and preserved a lot of its original features. One such feature is the 60 – feet long rice barn made form solid ebony!

This is probably the only one of its kind  and size in Sri Lanka.

Apart from the unique building with all its original features, pancreatitis the building is set on approx. 13 acres of lovely and lush tropical gardens which includes almost all kinds of matured tropical timber and fruit bearing trees.

This very special property is bordered by a small river and sheltered by a range of mountains on one side. This property would be ideal for a boutique hotel or – villa development being in very close proximity to Kandy and with good and easy road access, yet fully secluded and private.
