The farmhouse was designed like a mini palace giving it a rich, exuberant and colourful feel. The palatial look is reflected through the use of rich materials and colours, semi-precious stones, carving work on the furniture and extensive use of mirror work.
The entrance door leads to the foyer area which has the formal living area on one side and the dining area on its other side. From the foyer, one can see the informal lounge and the small home office.
All Rooms Have Their Individual Balconies Which Overlook The Green Outside
The primary residence of the house has long glass-lined corridor which is marked with a master bedroom, a kid’s room and two other rooms each with its unique look. All rooms have their individual balconies which overlook the green outside.
