From deep valleys to starry skies
About Beverly Hills
The house's name has been taken from the famous residential community where Hollywood stars reside. The property, by itself, is also a masterpiece, up a hill to capture the beautiful valleys and starry nights. The home enjoys an unequal grader in the region for the position and spaciousness in each part of the home.
Beverly Hills has a well-adapted architectural style combining modern conveniences and colonial hill home ethics. The bungalow stands on over a quarter an acre of land, with a large garden and on a corner property with three sides of the road. The exterior houses a tree house, a large koi fish pond and an expansive lawn, terraced on two levels. There are several fruiting and flowering trees bordering the property. One can enjoy the weather elements under the shaded porch throughout the year.
The house has five bedrooms, with two on the main level and three on the upper level. A large family room with a fireplace on the first floor, stands as the most outstanding hall in the house. A living room corner on the main level, serves as the common living space for the home. While the kitchen is a functional space, it is supported by a utility room and an outdoor utility space as well.
The home is outfitted with solid wood planks, hand-picked furniture, fauna and flora-themed photography, and Nilgiri-themed artwork covering the walls of these rooms. Large plate glass windows and bay windows where one may be at leisure in the bedrooms are just a few architectural elements that blend well and capture to the beauty of the hilly terrain. A seasonal waterfall is an attraction that some Hillsborough residents enjoy from their homes today.
