The pristine Gintota Beach, nestled within Galle’s most northern township boundary, lies one of the most beautiful stretches of untouched beach in Sri Lanka’s southern coast.
This exclusive property, comprises of 2 large parcels of waterfront beach land, fully encompassing a crescent shaped bay with picturesque rocky outcrops punctuating each end of the property.
The larger of the two pieces, 427 perch (2.67 acres) is accessed directly from a narrow and discrete road frontage along Galle Road, and then dramatically expands into a wider vista thru the full depth of the property to the horizon beyond. This arrival portion is elevated, like the majority of this property and then gradually crescendo’s downwards towards the beach level. The contour grading of the natural site is pure magic, providing exceptional opportunities for creative master planning which responds to the existing mature vegetation. There are two existing buildings, with the second one of more interest and character, & most worthy of restoring, if local flavour is required. It lies tucked into one corner, well away from any possible circulation routes. This property is enclosed within a newly constructed boundary wall.
The second & smaller parcel of the pair, 218 perch (1.36 acres) is accessed thru the residential access route a several doors away and enters the rear of the property, fairly centrally located. This level is pretty consistent, however a slight elevated arrival is evident. This entire portion is covered with a significant collection of randomly scattered towering coconut palms, reaching the picturesque shore line edge. There are a few scattered foundations from the previous simple structures doting the grounds. There’s also an insignificant building currently used as storehouse.
These unique properties are considered as ONE, to maintain & respect the spirit of the original property planner’s Dream of Paradise.
