Riyas, an expatriate who works as an engineer, is immensely proud to show around his newly built grand mansion at Kuttiady in Kozhikode. This majestic house, which stands regally on a sprawling 70 cents, features the beautiful blend of traditional and modern architectural styles. A procession of unbelievably enchanting sights begins from the gate itself. The elaborate gate is built in the style of a traditional padippura. GI truss work is done over the padipura and is paved with special roofing tiles imported from Indonesia. The same roofing tiles are used on the roof of the main structure as well. The gate emanates the regal charm of metal and wooden finish.
The house is built by leaving enough space in the front so that the mesmerizing beauty of the structure could be enjoyed in all its glory. Besides, it gives enough privacy and a spacious front yard as well. Natural stones and baby mettle have been alternatively paved in the landscape to ensure that the rainwater seeps through the earth. Lush green lawn paved with Mexican grass and a beautiful garden of flowering plants adds to the stunning look of the house. Catering to the interests of the family, flat roof has been avoided. Instead, the house features sloped roof in multiple layers which is the highlight of the elevation.
This palatial house, in impressive 7000 sq ft, has a car porch, sit-out, formal and family living areas, dining space, pantry and working kitchens, five bedrooms, upper living area, swimming pool and an office space as well.
The unique design of the formal living area allows modification when the family wants to host huge number of guests. This area gets transformed into an incredibly spacious single space when the door to the adjacent verandah is opened. The roof here is designed in double height, which makes the interiors look vaster.
The interiors designed in the semi open style makes it look like a huge and spacious hall. One can enter the pool area from the dining area through the patio.
The furnishings, done in wood, render a classy and majestic look to the interiors. The stunning beauty of the classic designs could be seen on the partitions, false ceiling and on the handrails of the stairway, which are made in the teak wood - veneer combination. The light fittings in warm tone, which goes amazingly well with the flooring, add a pleasant look to the interiors. Most of these charming pieces of decorative lights were specially imported.
There are two bedrooms on the ground floor and three on the upper floor. All the bedrooms are bath-attached with wardrobes and separate dressing spaces. The headboards of each bedroom are highlighted using wall papers in attractive designs.
The open kitchen is spacious and the fridge and oven are arranged as in – built. The cupboards are done in glass finish. Nano white is paved on the counter top. An adjacent working kitchen completes this area.
This elegant house features smart designs, modern facilities and meticulous space management as well. The beautiful landscaping and lush greenery too play key roles in making this house an absolute stunner.
