Ocean Front Old Town House for Sale in Koh Lanta, Thailand
In Koh Lanta’s Old Town, you will find a number of these ocean front and over-the-water properties. Due to the romantic nature that these Old Town houses represent, they have become extremely popular with expats and many have been refurbished into western standard homes.
This Old Town house, needs work. However, structurally the property is sound. The property is approx. 100 sqm, and with some inspiration could be a stunning over the water villa, like many others that have already been renovated. It would be possible to view some completed over-the-water properties to get a better idea of what can actually be done with these houses.
Even in the current state, the view from this property is outstanding. A fully panoramic sea view, islands and traditional boats literally crowd the view.
The Eastern coast of Koh Lanta is mainly sheltered from the annual monsoon, and so this is the ideal place on Koh Lanta to moor a boat. As this Old Town house is ocean front, it would be possible to own and moor a boat outside the property. Koh Lanta national marine park is more than 52 islands, so a great opportunity to explore the hidden beaches and unfound snorkelling spots.
The asking price for this project property is only
1.5M THB 1.1M THB. As the property is above the water, there is no land attached to the property and so no title deed. Literally you are buying the address, which is provided with the Tabien Baan or house book, supplied with the property.
The East Coast
The East Coast of Koh Lanta could easily be a whole world away rather than the 4-5KM from the Western beaches that it actually is. Predominately utilized for agriculture such as rubber tree plantations, it is an excellent opportunity to see real Thai Island life.
