Obsessed With: An Indian Ocean-Front Gem

blog Wall Street Journal's "House of the Day" always provides some real estate eye-candy but we're particularly taken with the Sri Lanken estate featured last week. This particular home is situated on the Indian Ocean with lushly landscaped grounds, a beach front pool, and enviable indoor/outdoor living spaces. Designed and built from the ground up, Hong-Kong based interior designer Beth Smith and her husband Paul are selling the property after purchasing the land in 2001. BlogPhoto2 We are loving the open feel and high ceilings of the home not to mention the regionally influenced decor. The price tag is a bargain compared to similar properties elsewhere but if you're not in the market for a home off the Indian coast, at least you can visit. The home is also available for week-long vacation rentals. BlogPhoto3 Read the story and see the full tour at The Wall Street Journal Photographs: Nilanga Wijesekera
