Step back in time and experience the magic of a 19th century Sri Lankan Manor House. Built by one of the ruling elite in Ceylon, Aranwella Walauwa is a classic illustration of 19th century properties - a little gem in the Tangalle area.

Maya (or Illusion in Sanskrit) is the creation of interior designer Niki Fairchild. She first stumbled upon the old Walauwa in 2004 and was instantly enchanted. Together with distinguished Sri Lankan architect Pradeep Kodikara, Niki renovated and brought back to life this heritage home. The stunning result blends period features with unique style: enhanced space, sky-high ceilings, open views, sleek lines and supremely comfortable living.
