Norse Hill EstateDesigned to the specifications of a highly successful Norwegian shipping baron in the early 1960’s and still one of the finest examples of that period; the architect used local materials to create an airy villa, 4,000 sq ft (371 sqm) of space and light. The first owners brought oriental treasures from their previous Hong Kong home, many of which remain to give Norse Hill Villa an elegant ambience very different to the run-of-the-mill, villa in the tropics. The current owners have added top quality bedding and linens, a/c and fans, large screen TV, internet – every amenity you’d expect plus a few.

Three of the four bedrooms are on the second level of the villa, the fourth room is a loft-style on the ground floor.
