The Best of Thailand: Bangkok’s Ultimate Bachelor Pad
Bangkok, Thailand is home to tuk-tuks, temples, street food, and more recently, one of Southeast Asia’s most impressive bachelor pads. Located on the 33rd floor of one of the city’s most exclusive residences, the condominium is sure to impress.
Rising 33 floors above the city and set within one of Bangkok’s finest residential projects exists a bachelor pad of epic proportions. Residents of The Sukhothai get the best of both worlds — a quiet and secluded retreat set far off of the road, as well as the convenience of the city’s lively CBD where shopping, restaurants, and public transportation are quickly accessed. Originally two adjoining units with a total of six bedrooms, the 5,253-square-foot space was renovated and reconfigured to create what is now one of the most luxurious two-bedroom residences in Bangkok. Spacious, sleek, and sophisticated, the unit comes fully furnished with fine designer pieces and ultra-modern technology.
A total of four private elevators afford entrance into the swanky duplex condo. Given that it was originally two separate units, a long hallway separates what currently serves as a one-bed/one-bath in-law apartment from the main attraction — an exquisitely customized one-bedroom bachelor pad. Characterized by a spacious layout and modern design, simple yet stylish furnishings can be found throughout and are accented by eclectic and colorful works of art. Eye-catching light fixtures such as a Louis Poulsen artichoke lamp and two Viabizzuno chandeliers also lend touches of elegance to the rooms they adorn.
The first level kitchen, dining room, and living room are open spaces surrounded by floor to ceiling windows, making for bright and airy days and stunning evenings with views of Bangkok’s iconic skyscrapers and city lights. The beautiful Minotti kitchen is fitted with Gaggenau and Siemens appliances, most of which stay covertly hidden behind sliding panel doors. Wine connoisseurs rejoice — there are six wine fridges in which you can store your collection. A wall-mounted touch pad or mobile app can control the Lutron Homeworks QS Lightning System, which allows homeowners to set colorful mood lighting in the kitchen, master bedroom, and master bathroom. The kitchen seamlessly flows into a comfortable living area with double height ceilings and glass doors that lead to the outdoor heated pool and spacious balcony. Those who enjoy films and the atmosphere of a theater will be pleased to find the custom cinema room, tucked quietly behind a discrete door off of the kitchen. Beautifully fitted with I.Rain OLED lighting and Flexform sofa and arm chairs, the room is the perfect setting to kick back and watch a film without ever needing to leave home.
A staircase with glass railing leads upstairs to the master bedroom and several bonus rooms. The master bedroom’s spacious en-suite bath is luxuriously fitted with a rain shower, custom bathtub, double trough sink, and Toto toilet imported from Japan. The bedroom’s large windows have views of both the city and the Chao Phraya River, with electric blinds that can be drawn for privacy or left open to admire the cityscapes. A hallway that overlooks the downstairs living space leads to an open TV room with an 84-inch LG Display, hidden speakers, and in-wall sub woofers. This floor also includes an enviable library complete with bookshelf, sliding ladder, and loft area. The adjoining office mirrors the library’s design with an additional floor to ceiling bookshelf, and also leads to a huge walk-in closet with plush white carpeting and ample storage.
To ensure the security and privacy of this magnificent home, an Axis CCTV system with four cameras has been installed. Though any resident would be hard-pressed to leave, the on-site facilities include a 100-meter swimming pool, floating pavilion, gym and yoga studio, sky lounge, children’s playroom, and beautiful gardens.
