British Colonial Bungalows for sale

Properties in the Nilgiris

The Nilgirisย is one of the few places in India still with a powerfulย colonial influence, architecturally in particular. Theย Britishย built several bungalows in the estates and towns they established here.ย Hill stationsย were a popular getaway from the heat and humidity of the rest of India. The climate here-pleasant rains and calm atmosphereย bore an uncanny resemblance to summers in Great Britain.ย The Nilgirisย was thus made the summer capital forย homesick elites and officers stationed in post-colonial Madras.

The grassy slopes of the hills were a sportsperson's paradise.ย Golf, horse riding, billiards and snookerย are still popular sports in the Nilgiris.ย The Madras Regimental Centre, now calledย DSSC,ย is another reason behind the heavy colonial influence still seen inย schools, social clubs, public structures like railway stations and culture here.

These houses embody the grandeur of the British era and are sturdy, elegant structures standing tallย almost a century later. Theย sloping roofs, large windows, chimneys and other architectural featuresย are charming and perfectly suited to endure the rains and temperature of the Western Ghats.

Theย Colonial Bungalowsย of the Nilgiris today are close toย century-old structures. Theseย aesthetically pleasing, double-wall-built residencesย are a hallmark of design and culture in the Nilgiris today. Some of these bungalows have stood the test of time and show the remarkable skill and quality of theย 1800sย in South India.

Each property has a history with prominent residents at various timelines. The properties are nostalgic and contain original elements, representing the time and culture of the Colonial period.

Some of these former British residences may needย upgrades and restoration.ย Vitragย and several partners in the Nilgiris have been able to restore such spaces successfully. Our structural consultants, designer and contractors understand the amount of care to preserve these elements.
