This house, consisting of two refurbished traditional Javanese structures known as joglos, is in Ubud, the inland city of temples and jungle-covered hills on Bali. Ubud is where the author Elizabeth Gilbert found love in her 2006 book “Eat, Pray, Love,” which helped raise international interest in property there.

Joglos are simple, open-air, wood-beam buildings found on the island of Java, hundreds of which have been dismantled and rebuilt as villas on Bali. The wood for this house is more than 120 years old and was originally used for a train station on Java, according to Jared Collins, a marketing consultant with Ubud Homes, which is listing the property.

The two joglos were rebuilt into this 3,300-square-foot home in 2010. Like most joglos, they are constructed around four wood pillars that form a tall central core, which draws hot air from the small rooms radiating from the center.
