Bill Bensley – A master of his craft
Bill Bensley is an American living in Thailand for the past 30 years and is at the pinnacle of his career.
Named by Architectural Digest as one of the Top 100 Architects in the world for four consecutive years, he has changed the way resorts are being designed all over the world. Time magazine wrote; Bensley is the, “King of exotic resorts”.
Our request to Bill was to create a home that he would be proud to call his own, as we were enthralled with his home in Bangkok. He and his partner, Jirachai Rengthong have sculpted a home and garden with heart and soul. Photographed for many architectural and life style magazines around the world, we wanted something similar yet different. Thus the creation of Villa Mae Rim. Many people feel that Villa Mae Rim is Bill Bensley‘s best residential work to date. The estate was featured in the April 2007 issue of Architectural Digest.

Villa For Sale Chiang Mai – The Setting
Known as Thailand’s ‘Rose of the North’, Chiang Mai continues to maintain the allure it has held for travelers for centuries.

Villa Mae Rim is a hand crafted residence built in this timeless landscape. The residence sits on 4 private and secure acres, surrounded by magnificent gardens while maintaining stunning views of the mountain scenery.
