About Quail Hill

Quail Hill Carmel Bungalow is a 3 bedroom house situated right in the midst of
a wooded area. The property has a living room, dining room, two bathrooms, a kitchen and a lovely attic. There is also ample parking space within the premises.

The property enjoys a large lawn on 2 sides of the building and a wonderful garden. The house is tucked away in the hill with eucalyptus surrounding the entire premises. Though private, it is 5 minutes away from Upper Coonoor's commercial hub - Bedford.

The house has a long and spacious veranda at its front with a staircase dropping down to the lawn. Ideal for a garden tea party, breakfast on a warm summer morning or a small succulent garden. A view of the garden can also be enjoyed from the front room and dining room through the large glass windows and door.

A white spiraling staircase leads up to the attic from the dining room. The attic's big windows look out to the lush eucalyptus trees outside that surround the premises. The space can be used as an additional bedroom, an art room to paint the serene garden from or an office. Or simply a space to put a sofa in and enjoy the warm afternoon sun.


If your heart desires to be a forest dweller, this is the closest that it gets here in the Nilgiris. A spot right amidst the woods, surrounded by tall trees with picture perfect rays of light passing through the eucalyptus leaves and the sight of mist that occasionally engulfs the place is what is called home.


Located at the top of a hill and yet a stone's throw away from the town, Quail Hill is primely located. The villa is very close to Bedford, Sim’s Park and Brooklands, thus very much in town. A 2-4 mins drive can access supermarkets, hospitals, parks and cafes.


The bedrooms are spacious and at the same time cosy. Water storage in large rainwater tanks and sumps have been provided for. Besides the open parking and private driveway through the lawn, there is also a car garage that may serve well if wish to park your car there for a long period of time.


The gardens outside the house are inviting and a pleasure to hang out in under the shade of the trees. The green lawn is simple yet rich with features in nooks. A deck within the lawn offers you the change to also sit out and dine in the right weather.


The home is very private, well embarked with a retaining wall towards the road and largely single level with neighbours unseen from the premises. Tiger Hill road and Quail Hill have beautiful walking and trekking paths for adventure lovers and fitness enthusiasts.
