villas in galle

20 middle street, galle fort

According to Channa Daswatte, the architect who conducted extensive renovations on the house, 20 Middle Street was built in about 1750 and was most likely a Dutch merchant’s house. The arched front verandah and porch, with the balustrades above were added by the English in the 1800s.

The present owner was adamant that the integrity of the original Dutch house should be preserved. As a result, the rooms are large and airy, with lofty ceilings, original teak windows and shutters and cool, terrazzo floors. All five bedrooms are air-conditioned with en-suite bathrooms, and views over the historic Galle Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Furnished with elegance and style, and offering sublime comfort and luxury, 20 Middle Street is the perfect villa to rent, and from where you can explore the beautiful southern coast of Sri Lanka.
