Nottingham, United Kingdom (PressExposure) July 15, 2009 -- 'Conservation means the greatest good to the greatest number for the longest time.â Thus spake early advocate Gifford Pinchot. Then his position was radical, now who would argue with it? Unfortunately noble aims sometimes clash with commerce, and many a stunning natural landscape has been blighted by insensitive overbuilding.
Described as Malaysia property best kept secret, Langkawi is an archipelago island situated 30km off the west coast of Malaysia, surrounded by pristine white sand beaches, coral reefs, limestone coves and a further 98 minor islands with crystal clear waters. Inland is mountainous, covered with ancient rain forest and riddled with bat caves and tunnels. Teeming with tropical flora and fauna, the marine biology is particularly diverse.
Fortunately development on the island has always been strictly controlled, more-so now since the area was designated a UNESCO World Geopark in 2007. Quality real estate on Langkawi is therefore in very short supply, and is set to be in increasing demand because direct flights from major cities like London are making the Langkawi experience more accessible
With natural harmony in mind Malaysia property's leading heritage architect has designed a small number of exclusive villas built in a traditional/contemporary Asian style that both blends with the local architecture and delivers the ultimate in luxury living. To this end indigenous hardwoods and locally-quarried marble have been used both outside and in. Properties come with private swimming pools, and are appointed to the highest standards. 7 of these stunning villas stand within 30,000 m2 of landscaped gardens - all with spectacular views to the sea.
