PHUKET: The Lake House is a development of seven villas, located close to Laguna.

Four of the villas are to be designed in a Thai-Balinese style and are ideal affordable homes for families.

The villas will look out across a lake and come with a private swimming pool, jacuzzi, lush tropical gardens and an open sala entertainment area next to the swimming pool.

Potential owners can choose between a one-storey or two-storey villa, complete with spacious living areas, beautifully appointed kitchen, open plan living and dining areas, plus luxurious bathrooms.

A modern kitchen will be fully equipped with stainless steel appliances and ample bench and cupboard space.

The bedrooms will all come with remote climate-controlled air-conditioning.

The two-storey villas will be built on 680 square meters of land with 3 bedrooms and the single-storey villas will range from 412 sqm to 640 sqm and have 2-3 bedrooms.

The total price for a fully furnished two-storey villa is 20 million baht.

The single-storey villas start off at 12 million baht and go up to 17 million baht, depending on the size of the property.

The developer, Phuket Greenland Property Co Ltd, has also built the ‘Secret Garden Villa’ which is also located close to Laguna Phuket.

The Lake House is only a 5 minute drive from the Laguna area and is close to Cherng Talay subdistrict where all required facilities and conveniences are found.

Bang Tao and Surin beaches are also only a short drive away.

Affordable for who, exactly? Starting prices at twelve million aren't cheap to the average Thai – and foreigners can't take ownership.

Affordable for whom? Um... well, that has been defined in the story. It's for those who either have, or can muster, 12 (twelve) million baht. Foreigners can't take ownership? This is true, but legal possession, occupancy, use and control are entirely possible – as is evident every day in Phuket. Have a look around.

You're stating the obvious, Kat – and I agree with all you say. My point is that for the average Thai these wouldn't be classed as 'affordable family homes', as described in the story.

I certainly could not afford one. Since when has the Gazette gone commercial making a headline news story out of a commercial message. I have noticed similar stories in the recent past.

Okay, point taken. In re-reading the story, I think the Gazette should have written that the homes appear to be reasonably priced for those who can afford them – not that they "are ideal, affordable homes for families".
