The grand elevation that exudes the spectacular grace of traditional architecture is the highlight of this abode. The classy roof in multiple layers, the spacious sit out and the majestic paneling works that adorn the walls here, the huge pillars, long verandah and the steps made with hard rock enhance the magnificent look of the elevation.
The teak paneling on the ceiling and the wall is designed like the traditional ‘machu’ that was usually seen in houses in the olden times.

Meanwhile, the smartly designed partitions act as designer pieces too. Moreover, the interesting ceiling patterns, wooden paneling works, custom made furniture and the beautiful light fittings grant a spectacular ambience to the interiors. The open courtyard ensures that there is abundant supply of natural light and cool breeze inside the house.
