Located in the erstwhile seaport of Calicut—Kozhikode—this heritage mansion comes with history that spans more than a century-and-a-half and an aura that is timeless. Tucked away under the richness of tropical shrubbery, this palatial house stands before a well-landscaped lawn, a cosy sitting space of wooden chairs and a table, and a breath-taking view of the greenery. A day well-spent on the lawns could involve a relaxing morning yoga session, an enjoyable afternoon picnic with warm company of your own self, and an evening of steaming chai cuppas and sumptuous samosas. Cocooned in a lush cove, an ancient ‘kund’—a stepped outdoor tank—sits enclosed in rock-lined walls and creates an aura paradise with its ethereal quartz-tinted water. Soak in its cool embrace and feel like a ‘Chera’ royal as you abandon your worries. Featuring cosy and minimalistic interiors, this suite is well-furnished with cottage-style single bed that as well-defined carvings on its headboard, an old-fashioned wall mirror, and a roomy standalone wardrobe. With walls adorned in embossed paintings of fiery ‘kathakali’ dancers and its expanse decked with wicker furniture and old-fashioned reclining chairs, the main hall completes the vision of a stately Kerala stay. Dig your toes in the dewy morning grass or sprawl under the wispy blue sky on the shores of a lily-pad pool, there’s much to keep you well-occupied for a relaxing solo sojourn.
The house was built according to Vasthu principles in traditional padinijitta (west-facing) style, as was prevalent then. On the south-west side was the family temple with Durga as the presiding deity, and a large traditional pond on the north-west side with perennial water supply, was used for swimming and bathing. The house had a main block, southern wing (thekkini) and northern wing (vadakkini) and there was a central courtyard separating the two wings and the main block.
