Anil and Anee, a doctor couple, is proud that their brand new luxury house has become a striking landmark in Kakkanad, Ernakulam, Kerala, within just three months after celebrating the housewarming ceremony. One would be awed at the array of mesmerizing features that deck up the interiors of this house. The family wanted their dream dwelling to be built closer to the city yet surrounded by serene natural beauty. They were not ready to compromise on the modern and luxurious facilities as well.
Architect Albin Paul of B Studio, Kakkanad has designed this scintillating house keeping in mind the interests and preferences of the family members. The beautiful landscaping done on the plot, which spreads in two levels, is what highlights the majestic look of the house. The exteriors and the charming landscape amazingly complement each other. Beautiful kadappa stones are paved on the drive way. Trees, plants and lush green meadows complete the well maintained landscape.
The spaces in the house are designed in elongated shapes taking advantage of the long plot which lies in two levels. The slanting roof adds to the regal aspect of this house which emanates the charm of contemporary style. It is the unique roofing tiles imported from Portugal that gives the exteriors a luxurious and majestic look. The interiors are designed in such a way that the spaces are always filled with lots of natural light and refreshingly cool breeze. Sliding glass doors and windows, sans the rows of grille, are stunning features which lend a classy look to the interiors. Rolling shutters are installed to ensure extra safety.
The incredibly spacious house built in 7500 sq ft boasts of unique features and facilities like formal and family living areas, dining hall, five bedrooms, a working kitchen and a pantry kitchen, work area, library, home theater, gym and party areas as well.
From the formal living area, one could enter the vast living cum dining hall which alone has an area of 700 sq ft. The family living area, designed in double height, makes the interiors look vast and spacious. The beautiful prayer area is made by installing special lighting behind a patch of exposed brick work. Exquisite paintings and curios adorn the walls in the interiors, enhancing the luxurious look of the house.
The luxury of Italian marble could be seen on the floors in all the main areas. Wooden flooring is done in the bedrooms. Meanwhile, vitrified tiles are paved in the kitchen. Natural lights and artificial lighting are wisely combined to light up the spaces. Gypsum false ceiling with mood lighting add a chic look. This feature helps adjust the lighting according to the mood of the family members.
The imported semi precious stone slab used as the table top on the dining table is incredibly stunning and exclusive. The water body is another striking feature in the interiors. The beautiful view of the soothing water body is possible from the formal living area and the sit out as well. A bronze statue of Lord Krishna makes the water body extremely attractive, giving it a mystical feel as well.
All the bedrooms are spacious and are laden with luxurious facilities. The bath attached bedrooms have wardrobes, separate dressing areas and sitting spaces as well.
There is a pantry kitchen besides the spacious working kitchen. An adjacent work area completes the kitchen. The island kitchen is designed in pristine white theme. The cupboards are done in automotive paint finish. A sink, counter top and an extended breakfast counter are arranged in the island kitchen. Nano white is paved on the counter top.
The house shines amazingly when the beautiful yellow lights, in the exteriors, are switched on at twilight. This dream dwelling is truly a design marvel which has plenty of wondrous sights in store.
