THE KHMER HOUSE is an open plan structure built in the 1940s. It was saved from destruction at its former location, miles away from the property: delicately dismantled and faithfully restored at its present home. A traditional Cambodian wooden house on stilts, the structure has an open living area on the ground level and a large, air-conditioned bedroom space with a modern bathroom on the second level. The largest space in the property at 130 sqm, it also includes a relaxing terrace upstairs. The Khmer House is a true taste of traditional Cambodian living set amongst a backdrop of lush greenery. The pieces of antique furniture are the most refined of the entire property: a 1930s children’s bed that has been turned into a couch; the 3ft mahogany armchairs; and the striking art Deco table are a precious testimony of what could once be made in 1930s Cambodian wooden workshops. Tradition is combined with contemporary art, such as our stunning melted and sanded aluminium lamps and chairs by designer Quasar Khan. The bedroom is adorned with a major piece of art from Cambodian artist Lim Muy Theam, has a king sized bed and an exquisite Art Deco wooden couch that can be converted into a bed. Downstairs, an ebony sofa and armchairs surround a large antique table for afternoon reading and relaxing, hidden behind a veil of greenery. The Khmer House used to be the owner’s parents’ house and a guesthouse for visiting friends.
