Where you’ll be

Colombo, Western Province, Sri Lanka

Located in a residential area with restaurants & supermarkets, etc., within walking distance.
The premises is on a by-road so traffic is less & as the unit is located away from the road, it is fairly quiet.
For those who like dogs it is the ideal place as we have two very friendly small dogs.

Hi. My husband Chris & I run a studio which has an extensive archive of photographs on Sri Lanka and has published several books. Our studio/residence is a recently renovated house - a home with modern conveniences and old-world charm. We preferred to keep our gardens rather than opt for a huge high rise! We have two ensuite units – one on the ground floor with direct access from the driveway and the other on the upper floor. Ours is an active household with a family of three persons and two friendly dogs. We enjoy reading, travelling and meeting people from all over the world.
