“Stone Mountain”, Walter and Sara Drake’s Estate in North Thailand, is available for sale. This beautiful property is located in Loei Province, often referred to as the “Emerald Province”, due to its undeveloped and unspoiled green vistas, with highways and byways uncluttered by traffic. The area is also home to many bicycling groups and attracts enthusiasts from all over Thailand who come to enjoy bicycling on its many unspoiled country roads. This hilltop property features an almost panoramic view of the surrounding green mountains and quaint village below. A wonderful place for both retirement and also for raising young children, the estate is also suitable for stabling horses, and is large enough to provide privacy and separation from neighbors.
The Land Parcel: The 15 rai parcel, is square in shape, with 140 meters frontage on a country road. It is one property back (about 165 meters) from the main government highway, Rt. 2249, one of the most beautifully scenic roads in Thailand. Although a country estate, the property is only 12 kilometers from downtown Loei City, and the Big C shopping/entertainment complex. Loei also contains the national hardware store, Home Pro, as well as additional shopping at Tesco Lotus and Makro. The gentle slopes of the property, with its interesting and always changing mountain views, make for a very interesting property, and one that is unusual to find in Thailand with the highest level Title Deed (referred to as “Chanote”). The property is fenced with barb wire and chain link to keep pets inside.
