Colonial Bungalow beside a eucalyptus forest
Kenilworth Bungalow is a century-old bungalow built in the British Era. This heritage English bungalow has retained a well-mixed combination of the British's architectural flavour and adapted to the environment of the Nilgiris. The bungalow rests majestically in the middle of a grove of Eucalyptus trees, and the garden is scented by its aroma.
This single storey home, sitting on a sprawling half-acre property, is located on the periphery of a eucalyptus and pine grove. The property, nestled between the grove on one side and a well-established gated community on the other side, enjoys privacy.
With a large built-up area of 4410 sq.ft., this bungalow stands majestically central to the landmass, with spaces on all sides to cater to gardens, lawns and recreation. The bungalow needs restoration or renovation, whichever may be the end-user's preference.
The house being within the limits of Coonoor Municipality adds to the advantage. An equestrian academy and a golf course are a 10-minute walk away from Kenilworth. The Wellington Gymkhana golf course is right on the next hill, and one can hit balls across if ambitious enough. The proximity to Sims Park, Coonoor Club, the Wellington Gymkhana Club and other shopping hubs in Bedford can be hard to match with other bungalows close to town yet so private.
The house is surrounded with verdance of trees, plants and shrubs. The eucalyptus are hundreds of years old now.
RESTORE OR RENOVATE?
With the large built up area available, a renovation plan can be sought to spruce up the space. A restoration also could be done if the floor plan suits your needs.
Unlike open properties, this being next a forest enhances the growth of all vegetation and habitat without aid of any manure. The eco-system is environment driven and not man-made driven.
