James Mathew and his family are the proud owners of the brand new luxury mansion at Kaduthuruthy in Kottayam district, Kerala, that has now become a star in the region. The house has been constructed without intervening the topography of the plot that lies in three levels. The family had made it clear to the architects that the land shouldn’t be levelled for the construction. So, the spaces inside the house too are sprawled in multiple levels that give a grandiose look to the house. The magnificent house provides different looks from the three sides, which is truly amazing.
The majestic mansion stands on a sprawling 68 cents of land and the aesthetically designed landscape plays a vital role in highlighting the stunning features of the exteriors. One cannot help but gaze in amazement at the regal charm of the circular lawn and the beautiful fountain in the centre. The roof, designed in multiple levels to suit the tropical climate of Kerala, instantly grabs attention.
From the sit-out, one could enter the lavishly furnished formal living area. Besides the stairway and a bedroom, an elevator too has been arranged in this level. Meanwhile, the family living area, dining space, patio, kitchen, courtyard and two bedrooms are in the next level. Two bedrooms, a spacious balcony and an open terrace constitute the top most level. The spaces are lavishly designed in this palatial house that stretches in 5770 sq ft.
The dining hall, designed in double height, makes the interiors look unbelievably vaster. The spacious dining table can comfortably accommodate up to 12 persons. A door here connects the dining space to the patio.
The stylish courtyard is just beside the family living area. Here, the walls are lined with strip windows that summon the golden sunshine into the house. The floor of the courtyard is decorated with shiny pebbles. A wooden deck in the centre separates this area from the rest of the house.
The transparent stairway is chic and acts as a major designer element in the interiors. The classic combination of wood and toughened glass makes the stairway extremely fascinating. The vast glass window on the first landing of the stairway illuminates the interiors. The breath-taking beauty of the ceiling, with wonderful carvings and other decorations, is another highlight that draws the eyes. This decorative feature reflects the bewitching charm of the unique Chettinadan style that is exquisite and regal.
All the bedrooms boast of luxurious facilities and eye catching designer elements. The attached bathrooms have glass ceiling that fills them with natural light. Besides, the spacious bedrooms have in – built wardrobes for storage, separate dressing spaces and study spaces as well.
The kitchen opens to the dining area. The spacious modular kitchen is equipped with all the modern facilities. Meanwhile, the kitchen cupboards are done in laminate and glass finish. Nano white has been paved on the counter top. An adjacent work area and a servant’s room complete the kitchen area.
Indoor plants add a hint of pleasant greenery to the vast and spacious interiors that are always filled with natural sunshine and cool breeze.
