The exteriors feature a mesmerizing blend of the contemporary and the traditional architectural styles. The sloped roof is paved with imported roofing tiles that lend a classy charm to the elevation.
There are two corridors that begin from the sit-out, one of them leads to the interiors and the other to the office room. The office space is arranged in a way without hampering the privacy and comfort of the house. One has to cross the foyer and a wooden bridge to reach the entrance of the house.

The formal living area is incredibly vaster and is spacious enough to host a large number of guests. The classy elegance of the imported couches is the highlight of this area. Beautiful carpets and hanging lights add to the spectacular look of this area.
The double heighted roof in the family living area plays a vital role in making it look vaster. Wooden flooring separates this space from the rest of the house. One could enter the garden through the foldable glass door here. The huge window above brings lots of natural sunshine and cool breeze into the house, making the interiors extremely lively and pleasant.

Though this mansion boasts of luxurious facilities and mind blowing designs, it has many environment-friendly features as well. The structure was built by retaining the trees that stood on the plot. Besides, the family pledged their commitment to nature by planting more trees in the plot. The solar panels on the roof produce the electricity that is mostly required to run the house. Instead of interlocking bricks, the front yard is paved with baby mettle which allows the rain water to seep into the earth.
