This traditional house has a car porch, sit out, living and dining areas, courtyard, pooja space, kitchen with a work area, three bedrooms and bathrooms arranged in 2591 sqft. The car porch has been built separately so that it wouldn’t disrupt the traditional theme of the structure. Old roofing tiles have been reused on the car porch.

The entrance door opens to the spacious and tastefully furnished formal living area. An elegant couch, TV unit and other furniture are arranged here. The centre of the house has a double height ceiling and the flat roof is topped with GI truss work. This makes the dining area look and feel incredibly vaster.
