When Jose had decided to built a house in his plot at Mammiyoor, Guruvayoor, he wanted it to be a unique structure. This elegant mansion, designed in the Victorian architectural style, stands gloriously in an 11.75-cent plot. The 3000 sq ft house is noted for its charming exteriors done in pristine white colored theme. Instead of mud tiles, shingles are paved on the roof.
Space which brings lots of natural light and fresh air into the house is the highlight. The interior courtyard, the vertical skylights near the stairway and the huge glass windows invite ample sunshine into the house. The excellent cross ventilation always maintains a pleasant temperature inside. The long corridor is the a welcoming feature as one enters the house.
The beautiful courtyard in double height is one of the attractive features of this house. The courtyard decorated with indoor plants and shiny pebbles are paved on the floor. The ceiling pergola too has been turned into a decorative feature here. One of the walls is highlighted using cladding stones. A side courtyard too has been arranged adjacent to the formal living area by separating it with stone cladding.
The dining table is simple which can comfortably accommodate 4 persons. A crockery shelf in glass completes the dining area.
The single – landing stairway is attractive and saves space as well. A wash area is arranged below it. The wall here is highlighted using plywood paneling. There is a family living area and TV unit here. The hand railings of the stair way are in stainless steel. Exquisite marble is paved on the floor which enhances the elegant look of the interiors. The living area in the upper storey is highlighted using bright pink color and there is a TV panel here.
Besides the bedroom on the ground floor, there are two more in the first storey. The bedrooms are simple and comfortable. Wall to ceiling wardrobes are arranged in all the bedrooms. A TV unit has been arranged on the head board panel in one of the bedrooms.
The cupboards in the kitchen are made in marine plywood. Granite is paved on the counter top. Lights in warm tones highlight the white colored theme of the house.
The grandeur of this house is enhanced when all the lights are switched on at night. The colonial design of the house gives it a chic look and is complete with all the modern facilities.
