Mananthawadi house
The 40,000 sq ft grand house in Mananthavady is designed in the colonial architectural style.

The pictures of a humongous palatial mansion were doing the rounds on the social media, few months ago, terming it as the biggest house in Wayanad, Kerala. However, the magnificent Arackal palace is way beyond what has been said about it. The majestic palatial house is classy, luxurious and so extravagant that you could easily call it one of biggest houses in the state.


Joy, a well-known businessman, wanted his house to reflect his incredible successes in life. The 40,000 sq ft grand house that he built in his hometown in Mananthavady looks regal and brims with luxury. The Arackal palace designed in the colonial architectural style is scintillating and breath-taking.


The luxury house stands regally on a sprawling 4 acres of land, which is raised from the level of the road. The aesthetically designed landscape is a stunning feature and it highlights the incredibly charming features of the exteriors. The house is designed in a way which facilitates amazing and unique views of it from all directions. Lush green meadows, paved with Mexican grass, adorn the landscape which lies in layers. The beautiful gazebo here becomes lively and is filled with mirth, in the evenings, when guests arrive to enjoy a gala time. The charming lamps illuminate the garden, making it look amazing.


The exeuberant car porch which projects to the front of the façade is the most prominent and spectacular feature of the exteriors. The sit-out which is uniquely designed in 180 degree angle provides mind-blowing views of the landscape.


Sheer luxury and grandeur dominates the interiors of this house, which is truly awe-inspiring. The endless sights of exquisite curios, unique decor and perfect designing skills are sure to stun anyone. The roof, which is at a height of three times that of the contemporary measurements, is what makes this elaborate edifice stand apart. So, one feels as if he/she is entering a dreamy palace which is unbelievably vast and spacious. The main hall is 26 meters long and is lined with unusually tall pillars covered with imported marble.


Joy has an amazing extended family and a group of devoted friends who often visit them to enjoy some mesmerizing moments. The vast spaces have been designed to accommodate his family and friends. These spaces are extremely comfortable and pleasant and emanate the classy charm of luxury. The custom-made furniture is specially imported from Indonesia. The furniture and the paneling on the stairway are all done in high quality, exquisite teak wood.


This grand house has formal and family living areas, two dining areas, three kitchens, eight bedrooms, courtyard, home theater, prayer area, entertainment area and swimming pool. These are just some of the facilities in the long list of luxuries that make this house the talk of the town.


The exclusive Italian marble, paved on the floor, enhances the classy elegance of the interiors. The imported chandeliers are unique pieces which boast of fine artistry and craftsmanship. The dining areas are spacious enough to host any number of guests. There is also another quaint dining area and a separate pantry kitchen for the family’s regular use.


The majestic imperial staircase, with double flights has golden hued hand railings in ornamental designs. This stairway is as stunning as an exclusive work of art and is the highlight of the mesmerizing hall. The ornamental handrails, on all the floors, play a vital role in lending a royal look to the interiors. The beautiful corridors, soothing waterbody and an impressive and unique collection of curios and insignia are factors which enhance the stylish look of the house.


The island kitchen is designed in the theme of pristine white. Nano white is paved on the counter top. The cupboards here are done in glossy laminate finish. A breakfast counter completes the kitchen that has all the modern facilities.


There are three bedrooms on the ground floor and five on the upper storey. Each bedroom is designed in unique themes and eye catching designs, with luxurious facilities.

The bedrooms are two times vast than the usual size. False ceiling and stylish LED light fittings give a dreamy look to the bedrooms.


Arackal palace, in all its majestic glory, redefines the idea of a dwelling. Joy has amazingly honoured his hard work and success through this palatial structure which oozes regality and elegance.
