Dawson is a beautiful independent bungalow located in Coonoor. The house is majestic and built-in an English style. Well-located along the Coonoor-Kotagiri highway, the property is neatly tucked away without any disturbance from the main road. The home capitalizes on the view of the tea estates, forests and dotted villages in the surroundings.
The bedrooms are spacious and enjoy the expanse of the lush green tea estates and forest topped hills. The feeling of being one with nature is unmatched with the plate glass window — the picture glass view into the blue hills dotted with various hattis (villages) of the Nilgiris. A picturesque verandah fitted traditional H frames, and terracotta roof adds to the aesthetics of the house.
A central living room with double-height ceilings adds grandeur to the place. The living room has a faux fireplace attached to a bar area. The bay windows present in the bedroom gives a sense of space and add to the natural light. Dormer windows cutting the roofline create vents for light to enter the home at dawn and dusk.
A few highlights noteworthy of mention in this bungalow are the covered sit-outs beside the lawn, a covered Gazebo, private exterior deck, a couple's swing and several potted plants outside. The kitchen is a modern Indian kitchen, convenient to the modern homemakers. The dining looks out into a covered verandah which is currently a dog shelter. The wooden flooring, pinewood false-ceiling throughout the house and steps with beautiful granite tops are few aesthetic features.
A spacious servant's room is on the lower level. For safety purposes, the house's windows have grills that add to your safety. There's also a dedicated car garage aids storage of miscellaneous equipment and the car.
