The elevation and the entrance area of the house feature the elegant charm of traditional architecture.

Jaison Jacob, who runs a construction business in the Gulf, is elated that he has built his dream abode in his ancestral property near Marangattupilly in Kottayam district, Kerala. His wife Neva and children Alan, Sleeva and Abel too wished for a simple yet elegant house in their hometown that is in perfect sync with the surrounding nature. Moreover, they wanted a single-storey house that boasts of all the modern amenities.

The structure is designed by retaining most of the trees in the plot. Architect Sreekanth Pangapadu deserves credit for designing such a fabulous abode without blocking any water sources in the plot. Moreover, he made sure to preserve the natural beauty while ensuring that the house too is perfect.

The long veranda adds a traditional charm to the entrance area that faces the east side. Meanwhile, four spacious bedrooms, with separate truss areas and attached bathrooms, had been included in the plan.

The enchanting abode has a formal living area, an elaborate family living space with a central courtyard, a spacious dining area, kitchen with an adjacent work area, store room and a staircase that leads to the terrace.

The home theatre that boasts of modern visual and acoustic technologies is one of the highlights of the house that has been designed in 2700 sqft.

Even though the elevation and the entrance area of the house feature the elegant charm of traditional architecture, the interiors are modern and reflect the chicness of contemporary style. The flat roof has been designed in two layers and a tile paved truss roof is installed over this. Interestingly, this area could be utilised as a storage and multi utility space.

The trees around the house and the beautiful garden play pivotal roles in granting a calming ambience. Meanwhile, the quaint natural water body has been turned into a swimming pool.

Jaison and his family feel pride when their guests compliment them for building such a scintillating house.
