Latheesh who works in a noted company in Oman has always dreamed to build a house of his own in his hometown in Payyoli in Kozhikode district. He has envisaged it as an amazing vacation house that could refresh his mind and body when he comes home for the holidays. The splendid mansion sits in a sprawling 60 cents, in a serene spot, away from the bustle of the city.
The family wanted a modern and contemporary elevation that suited the tropical climate of Kerala and luxurious interiors that exude classy elegance. Noted architect Muhammad Muneer deserves the credit for designing such a mesmerizing abode.
Taking advantage of the spacious plot, the structure has been built with a vast front yard. A slope roof in multiple layers is the highlight of the elevation. Besides, there is a show wall with brick cladding in the centre. Meanwhile, the grove plastering works with excellent paint finish add more dimension to the contemporary elevation.
The car porch is spacious enough to park two vehicles. Designed in 4500 sqft, this mansion has a car porch, sit-out, formal and family living areas, kitchen with a work area and three bedrooms on the ground floor. Meanwhile, the upper floor has three more bedrooms, a study area and a balcony too.
The grand opulence of imported furnishing items and décor make the interiors a haven of luxury. The imported tiles and furniture add to the regal ambience of the interior spaces.
The entrance door opens to the elegantly furnished living – dining areas. From here, one could enter the formal living area that has been separated to ensure privacy. A classic leather couch set that has been imported adorn this area.
Meanwhile, the family living area and the dining area are part of the semi-open hall. An imported leather couch could be seen here too. Besides, a separate TV unit has been arranged here.
The ten-seater mega dining table too is imported. The folding doors in the dining area open to the front yard. Moreover, lots of natural sunshine and cool breeze enter the house through these doors.
The designer staircase is an eye-catching feature that also separates the living and the dining halls. The concrete steps are covered with teak wood panels. Meanwhile, the hand railings feature the enchanting combination of teak wood and glass. The staircase leads to a spacious study area. Interestingly, the ceiling in the upper floor has been retained as slopes.
The bedrooms are as luxurious as the ones seen in five-star resorts. They have been designed in unique themes to cater to the likes of the family members. The resin claddings, wooden panelling, false ceiling and dreamy light fittings make the bedrooms incredibly beautiful and cosy. The bath attached bedrooms have in–built wardrobes for storage too. Besides, there are adjacent balconies from where the splendid view of the garden could be enjoyed.
The modern kitchen dons the classic colour combination of white and grey. The cabinets, meanwhile, are done in planilaque glass with an acrylic finish. Korean stone has been paved on the countertop. An adjacent work area completes the kitchen space.
During the day, the soothing views of the beautiful countryside could be enjoyed from various spots in the house. Meanwhile, the house glows in the night when the spotlights are switched on at night. The name of the house, ‘Swasti’, which means ‘pure’ amazingly reflects the spirit of this dream dwelling.
