Lots of guests often visit his house to meet Muhammad. So, he wanted a classy abode that suits his needs. Designer Muhammed Najim deserves credit for designing such a grand abode that has become a major landmark in the area.
The elevation features a majestic colonial style. The truss roof that is installed above the flat roof has been paved with exquisite imported roofing tiles.
Interestingly, the gate and the compound wall too follow the colonial theme to compliment the grand elevation. Meanwhile, the front yard has been paved with natural stones. The verdant lawns and the beautiful garden add a unique charm to the structure. Besides the car porch that has been built as part of the structure, there is a detached porch built on the model of the house.

The classy elegance of the Italian marble flooring is really impressive. The fabulous furniture pieces are specially imported from Malaysia. Meanwhile, the warm tone lights that fills the interiors with impeccable ambience were brought from Dubai.
The royal stairway is magnificent and attracts instant attention. The 3 D cutting works on teak wood make this stairway an incredible designer piece.
