This three-bedroom home is located right off the Kattabettu-Billicombai road, which overlooks a valley surrounded by mountains. Itโ€™s within a 30-minute drive from Ooty, Kotagiri and Coonoor. With a small garden in front and a parking space for two mid-sized cars.

The current homeowners have used their creative wit and inspiration to decorate and ornate the home. Within the 8.5 cents of land, the entire property has the house centrally positioned with shrubs and trees surrounding the periphery.

The house is a single-level building with two wings divided by a corridor. Dated elements like vintage Chettinad doors, colourful Athangudi tiles, exposed wiring, bakelite switches, and handblock painted tapestry are just a few to name.

While one wing of the house is used as the main bungalow, the other is used as the studio. Both wings can be treated as independent units as they have their own bedrooms, kitchen and toilet. The vintage design is carried through both units with different themes of patterns and motifs.

This living space also functions as a dining area with a double-height ceiling adjacent to the kitchen and the pooja room, leading into the two other bedrooms. The two bedrooms lead out to a large joint balcony that overlooks a valley and the surrounding mountains.

A large attic looking down into the dining area leads up from the rear living space. The skylight and the two tall windows at either end let in plenty of sunlight.

Equipped with a fully functional retro-style chimney open to the sky and accented with Athangudi tiles, this kitchen fits right in with the rest of the house.

The neighbourhood is peaceful, dotted with residential villas along the main road amid mid-sized to large tea estates. A few landmarks around the house are a tea factory and a village Public Health Centre. The Kattabettu junction, which forms the central point between Ooty, Coonoor and Kotagiri, is less than a kilometer away, giving you unhindered access to the three major towns of the Nilgiris district.
