Upgraded ‘Bali style’ Walls
Our 15 Are (about 1/3 acre) of land, and building site lies behind the owners older compound, in the middle of 24 coconut trees. So we had to build a 200 foot long (60 meter) driveway and wall past the existing buildings, and make the driveway entrance attractive (as seen from the street).
The location of land, for sale or lease, is often behind a Balinese family compound. When the front (street facing) compound was originally built, the access to back lot was not a priority. Of course, the back lot has little value to another family if you cannot get to it.
Our negotiations for the back lot land, hung on the question of street access. We compromised with the landlord, in that we would pay for the relocation of his parking area to the rear, and we would build the new driveway and side wall. We decided to also upgrade his front street wall and entrance to a more attractive “Bali Style” unified design. So, now we both can access a parking area in between our two lots (family compounds) and still have privacy for each family.
