Shameer Babu’s ‘brand-new’ house at Tirur in Malappuram could rightly be called a ‘garden house’ that celebrates the serene beauty and charm of greenery. Time had begun taking a toll on the old structure that was more than three decades old. So, the family decided to give it a makeover to suit modern times.

This was an old-style concrete-proofed house. The most amazing fact is that the renewed look of the house has no similarities with the old structure. At a glance, no one would guess that this is a renovated house and not a newly built one.

The irregular elevation adds a chic charm to the structure. Meanwhile, the show roof made of GI truss in the front is an interesting feature. Similarly, there is a spherical show wall between the car porch and the sit-out which grants a contemporary look to the elevation.

The mesmerizing landscape and the lush green garden are the highlights of this house. The verdant lawns are paved with buffalo grass. Besides, the sweet fragrance of mandaram or dwarf white bauhinia, peace lilies and creepers fill the enchanting garden.

Designed in 3240 sqft, this fabulous abode has a car porch, sit out, living and dining areas, courtyard, kitchen with a work area, four bedrooms, three balconies, utility space and an open terrace.

The interiors do not feature dark colour tones that are harsher on the eyes. Instead, the walls don a classy combination of off-white and wooden shades. The grand elegance of exquisite Italian marble elevates the overall look of the interiors.

Meanwhile, wooden finished tiles have been used for flooring in some areas. The custom-made furniture perfectly suits the general theme of the house. The interiors have been modified by making the old, congested rooms vaster. Besides, some rooms have been shifted to different spots in the house.

The hard rock cladding is an interesting designer element in the formal living area. Meanwhile, the double-height stairway instantly draws attention. Teak wood planks have been used as steps on the stairway while the metal frame is minimal and classy. The fourth step has been extended to the side to set up the washbasin.

Three balconies have been arranged to enjoy the amazing beauty of the landscape. The hard rock claddings and the cement finish grant a rustic charm to the sit-out. The common balcony is one of the greenest spots in the house. The creepers that grow on the concrete pillars below the truss roof adds charming greenery to this area.

The double-height dining area connects both the floors. Meanwhile, this area is a few inches above the floor level and is highlighted with wooden flooring. There is a door beside the dining table that opens to the yard. Interestingly, the double-height wall on this side is lined with glass windows to bring in natural sun shine.

The family was unhappy with the small and congested bedrooms in the old house. However, now, they have been transformed into spacious rooms that are attractively furnished. Private balconies have been arranged in the two bedrooms on the ground floor. Marble brass sheet has been used on the bedroom walls to add a classy sheen. Meanwhile, the simple yet elegant painting of a butterfly in one of the bedrooms is unmissable.

The bath attached bedrooms have in–built wardrobes for storage, separate dressing spaces, side tables and reading areas too.

The ‘L’ shaped kitchen is furnished in white and wooden colour theme. Meanwhile, the cabinets are done in multi wood with laminate finish. The countertop has been paved with Korean stone. A quaint wooden breakfast counter and hanging pendant lights complete the modern kitchen.

The family is proud that they have given their old house a fabulous makeover. Moreover, the beautiful greenery fills the house with positive vibes too.
