The style is colonial, grand and near baroque. This 3,900-sq ft mansion stands regally on 30 cents of land at Koduvally, Kozhikode. Its owner Basheer knew that his house had to be out of the ordinary; which meant it had to have a distinctive style. Hence the colonial choice that has been maintained as the theme of the house in and out. The elevation owes its stunning look to the different roof levels that have come up on truss. The roofs have been paved with shingles. The dormer windows lend the structure its super colonial aspect.
The white-themed interiors are semi-open in style. This heightens the feel of expansiveness. All pieces of furniture have been custom-made to match the colour theme. The marble-finish floor tiles are stylish and complement the overall decor.
The bedrooms have been laid with floor tiles in wood finish. The gypsum false ceiling, again themed white, with LEDs within give the bedrooms a golden glow and look grand; colonial once again.
The main door opens into the drawing section to its left. The dark sofas are a fine contrast to the room’s dcor in muted shades. The highlight of the space is its majestic looking TV unit which is actually wood painted in white finish to go with the room’s dcor. This provides the apt style quotient and also acts as a partition and keeps the space private.
The dining space is lavishly roomy. An imposing 10-seat dining table presides over the space. The table has white paint on wood. Jali partition in CNC keeps the bedroom protected from the dining space.
The four bedrooms have attached bathrooms and wardrobes. The floor-to-ceiling window curtains look fetching and add to the regal look of the space. A lot of importance has been given to storage and one of the bedrooms enjoys storage in all its luxury with an entire wall getting wardrobe space.
It is a rectangular kitchen here. The dcor here is in plywood laminated finish. Granite counters and a breakfast counter complete the design here.
What heighten the elevation are the many trees planted around. There are more trees than potted plants. Rainwater storage has been provided and the yard has been paved with eco-friendly natural stones called Tandur which allows water to seep through. A small sitting area within the lawns looks attractive and has been provided for the family to sit around and enjoy their evenings.
Grand and imposing by day, the colonial house is a stunner by night when the lights come on and emit a golden glow.
