Beautiful Savusavu Home on the Market

Designed by Architects Pacific to capture spectacular sea views from each of three interconnected bures, this very private 400 square metre home perches 45 metres above a beautiful lagoon. The property has just gone through a significant refurb and upgrade, making it a walk in opportunity.

The sea side of each bure opens entirely to verandahs with 180-degree views of reef, islands and the ocean extending to the horizon.

This home looks out over a deep 15-metre-long by 7.5-metre-wide free form infinity pool which has been excavated from rock. The pool appears to merge with the sea. A large thatched gazebo overhangs the pool and is the perfect place to enjoy the breeze while lying in a hammock.

Two and a half acres of former coconut plantation extend down to sea level. The whole of the two and a half acres have been professionally landscaped with mature palms, fruit trees, shrubs and flowers. with a walk around deck and various viewing platforms to take it all in.

Simply move in and enjoy.

 A Unique and Secluded Tropical Island Retreat

The property would be ideal for retirees, as a second or holiday home or anyone with an internet business who would like to live in paradise while staying connected with the rest of the world.

Access

The property is accessed through high locked gates from a private drive then via a wide circular cement driveway through to a double porte cochere. A short-covered walkway then leads to the entrance. The Vesi double doors open to reveal a jaw dropping view across the horizon edge pool which merges with the lagoon then the sea beyond around 180 degrees of horizon.

Overall building size

The internal Vesi (beautiful local hardwood) timber floor area totals 247 square metres. There are a further 150 square metres of Rasawa-floored verandahs and Vesi front porch plus another 25 square metres of Vesi-floored gazebo by the pool.

Two large external lockup store rooms provide secure storage. One houses two pool pumps, a filter tank and chlorinator

Plans are approved for an additional guest cottage and garage of 49 square metres on an already leveled site.

Layout

The house comprises 3 connected bures built on one level and set on 2 1/2 acres of former coconut plantation 45 metres right above beautiful Maravu lagoon. More than 1 1/2 acres have been landscaped with a variety of mature palm trees, ornamental shrubs, fruit trees, pawpaw’s, many kinds of bananas, passion fruit, pineapples and abundant tropical flowers which are visited by sea birds, butterflies and bees.

Design

The building design features a strong Fijian theme. Soaring 26 feet ceilings beneath insulated colour-bond roofs are overlaid with kuta matting proudly woven by skilled local women. Traditionally made and naturally dyed magi magi is woven around the main ceiling supports and finished with custom produced masi (tapa) decoration. Extensive architect designed lighting enhances the features inside and out and there are outdoor power points handy on each verandah and in the gazebo for added convenience.

Bi-fold doors along the sea side of the three bures and entrance foyer open the entire southern side of the house to the sea breezes and magnificent ever-changing views.

Air conditioners are in the bedrooms as well as ceiling fans in each bure. The bures are carefully positioned to catch southeast trade breezes and to optimize the views.

The great bure houses the kitchen, dining and drawing room with pantry, powder room and laundry at the rear.

Clerestory windows high around every bure provide natural filtered light. Cyclone glass is installed in the windows throughout for added safety.

The master bedroom suite is situated on the western side with a large foyer connecting it to the great bure. The foyer opens to sweeping views of the pool, lagoon, reef, sea and islands. The guest bedroom/study suite is arranged on the eastern side and is approached via a breezy louvre-enclosed walkway with views of surf crashing on that reef.

Each bure has its own bathroom. The master bathroom has a bidet, two basins and double shower. A powder room is also located in the great bure and a large hot and cold outdoor shower overarched with tree ferns enjoys views across the sea and to the mountains.

The bench tops and splash-backs in the kitchen are granite. There is one double stainless-steel sink plus one single stainless-steel sink, glass stove top with retractable exhaust and light, dish-drawer and portable oven (the wall unit is wired for a full sized electric oven if needed). The laundry houses a new front-loading washing machine and dryer.

The property is on mains power and has a backup Robin Subaru 9.5 KVA generator with ignition key start. There are separate fuse boxes located in each bure and in the pool pump room.

The house is designed to withstand an ultimate wind limit speed of 66 metres per second or 273 Km/hr. The house went through Cyclone Thomas and Winston, both category 5 cyclones, with no ill effects The home now has a recent cyclone certificate in place and in our experience most properties don’t have them and to get one can become costly especially if remedial work is required.

The fully fenced property is well drained with generous concreted spoon drains to cope with sudden torrential tropical downpours.

The home will be sold complete with principal furniture imported from England

Communication

Vodaphone Wi-Fi, landline telephone plus good mobile reception ensures reliable communication.

Chlorinated water pool, Snorkeling and Diving Sites

The 15 metre by 7.5 metre freeform  chlorinated horizon edge pool has depths ranging from 1.2 metres to 2.4 metres and remains cool enough to refresh throughout the summer.

The pool replicates the shape of the original rock from which it was excavated so that its horizon edge appears to blend with the waters of the lagoon. It is the perfect location for watching the sunset with a cocktail then lingering on for some tropical stargazing.

The gazebo overlooking the pool is roofed in a fine version of Palmex synthetic thatch imported from Canada. It is fire resistant, maintenance free and very natural in appearance. Best of all, it makes no mess in the pool.

A choice of locations for spectacular snorkeling are within a short walk and fabulous scuba diving is located at a choice of dive sites off the reef directly in front of the property. Dive boats operate daily from a nearby resort as well as from other locations.

Water supply

Water is supplied from a natural spring further up the hill. The water filter is a multimedia filtration filter (sand, anthracite, garnet and gravel support media) Model No TFM9 manufactured by Contamination Control Technologies. The spring water itself has been tested and is potable before filtration. There is a further filter for drinking water in the kitchen.

Abundant solar hot water is supplied from a double paneled solar collection panel and storage tank. There are also two 5000 litre rain water tanks and pumps. Colourbond roofs over the water tanks within a cemented enclosure serve to keep them cool.
