It didn’t take Real Estate Executive John Chadwick long to fall in love with Thailand, and shortly thereafter, he built this magnificent $2.5-million villa on a peninsula, perched 200 ft. above Patong Harbor in Phuket. “I told the architect I wanted to build a Frank Lloyd Wright house in Thailand,” Chadwick told The New York Times. “I want strong horizontals. I want big, broad-shouldered spaces. I said to him, ‘It’s kind of like a Malibu beach house with oceanfront Phuket property.’” With the spectacular view as this modern home’s main lure, it’s fitting that Chadwick’s favorite room in this contemporary villa residence is the patio. But from the inside out, there are countless other spaces that vie for his attention. This two-storey 7500-sq.-ft. house features functional areas on the upper level – a living room, dining room, kitchen, master bedroom, home office and patio. The luxurious lower level is designed as a resort-style retreat, housing three additional bedrooms, an exercise/games room and massage room, all encircling a courtyard and pool.
