Like every expatriate who lives abroad to earn a living, Shahul too had dreamed of building a house of his own in his hometown in Kerala. Now, he is happy and proud to have fulfilled that dream as he shows around his brand new house in Tirur, Malappuram. The old house that stood on his ancestral property was demolished before constructing the new house there. As the plot gets flooded easily, it was raised by two meters by dumping soil.
The family wanted spacious interiors that receive ample amount of sunshine and cool breeze. The elevation features the contemporary box style. Meanwhile, the curvilinear room in the upper floor instantly grabs attention. The amazing combination of terracotta, grey and red grants a chic look to the house. The driveway has been paved with Bangalore stones. Meanwhile, the beautiful landscape has verdant meadows of Korean grass and other plants.
Designed in 3000 sqft, this splendid abode has a car porch, sit-out, formal and family living areas, dining space and two bedrooms in the ground floor. Meanwhile, there are three more bedrooms and a balcony in the upper floor.
The elegantly furnished formal living area is arranged by ensuring enough privacy, close to the entrance door. The spaces of the open-themed interiors communicate with each other. Even though the interior spaces mostly don white colour, the walls have been highlighted with wallpapers and texture paint.
The stairway features a classic combination of metal and wood. The hand railings, meanwhile, are done in glass and wood. The TV unit is installed beneath the stairway. A cosy couch is arranged just opposite this area.
The bedrooms are simple yet elegant. The concealed cupboards are extremely convenient and space efficient. The bath-attached bedrooms have separate dressing spaces too.
The modern kitchen is furnished in a light blue colour theme. Lots of cabinets, done in acrylic with laminate finish, have been arranged here for storage. Interestingly, the kitchen walls have tiles pasted on them. Meanwhile, the concealed LED lights add a spectacular charm to this area. The countertop has been paved with nano white. The adjacent work area isn’t separated using a partition. A quaint breakfast counter too has been arranged as part of the kitchen.
The owner was abroad when the house was being constructed. He oversaw the construction mostly via WhatsApp calls. However, the family is elated that their brand-new house looks exactly as they had imagined.
