A treasure in a World Heritage City
The house started its life 80 years ago in the privince of Hongsaa, Laos, where I purchased it in 2006 and subsequently had it disassembled and shipped to Luang Prabang. In Luang Prabang it started its second life almost on the top of the peninsula, which is the center of the ancient royal capital of Luang Prabang, ajacent to one of Luang Prabangs many old temples (Wat Khily) and within one minute walk of more than 10 other temples...
Living too far away from Luang Prabang now, I am looking for reliable long term tenants for the house and would also consider a sale. If you are interested please contact me.
The house boasts 15 massive ancient rosewood pillars about 60 cm diammeter and all the other supporting beams are still from the historic building (picture taken during the construction).
Roof, walls and floors are new, made of brick and terracotta on the lower level, where the hall/ kitchen, the bedroom and the bathroom are located. On the upper level floors and walls are also made of rosewood just like all the doors and windows in the house. The lower level has app. 40 sqm., the upper level app. 50 sqm.
